Bobbi Brown Rich Lip Color in Old Hollywood

Bobbi Brown's Old Hollywood collection for Christmas 2013 is absolutely beautiful - sleek black or golden packaging, with classic shades of shimmering neutrals with stark black and red accents.  The eyeshadow palette is beautiful (and might possibly be on my Christmas list already, even though I really don't need more neutral shimmering shadows).  This lipstick is at the core of the collection - it's called Old Hollywood, and it's a classic, rich blue-toned red.

One thing I really like about it is the slightly curved bullet tip.  It has a slightly concave curve to it, which means it hugs the lip beautifully as you apply.

The colour is a classic - bright red which makes the teeth look whiter and looks flatteringly striking on most skintones.  The texture is soft and comfortable, and has plenty of pigment - two passes over the lips gives full coverage, and a single pass gives a slightly less rich finish.  Wear is also thoroughly decent, requiring a topup after a few hours, but fading evenly and avoiding the dreaded ring-of-death around the outline of the lips.

Overall this is a really lovely red - if you're in the market for a classic red it's definitely worth the £19 pricetag.  Find it online now.
