When I found out that the Duchess of Cambridge’s lipstick is Bobby Brown’s sandwash pink, I decided to drop by their shop and try it on me.

I didn’t like the way it looked on me; I looked washed out. Since I wanted to buy a pink lippy and didn’t own a Bobby Brown yet, I decided to check out their other pink shades and settled on the Pink Peony because it was a brighter pink.
On the first day that I used it, I didn’t actually like it because I couldn’t seem to get enough color from the lipstick to my lips, like it wasn’t that creamy or something. But a few days later when I decided to give it another go, for some reason the problem was no longer there; maybe I just did something wrong that first time? Anyway, that was when I fell in love with it for two reasons: (1) the color is bright enough that it brightens up my face yet is not that loud and (2) amazing staying power despite not being a matte finish; it is creamy yet lightweight. The color does not fade quickly and actually remains even after I eat lunch. I’m not good at retouching, so this is a high selling point for me. Mac’s so-called “pro longwear” lipstick, for example, has a misleading name in that it does not wear long at all. The pink one, anyway. I find that their russian red stays on longer, but so do most red lipsticks, so it doesn’t really count.

I’m so sold on Bobby Brown lipsticks that I am thinking of getting another one in a different shade. I might even give the sandwash pink another chance because when I tried it again for a second time, it started to grow on me. And even though it was the barest hint of pink, the color stayed on. I am impressed, seriously.
