Bobbi Brown uses artistic licence in latest Liquid Lip

Bobbi Brown Art Stick Liquid Lip LR

Art supply shops are one of life’s great pleasures. Even if you’re not an artist, the rows of perfectly sharpened pencils, tubes of paint, bottles of ink, paper-wrapped pastels, pristine brushes and crisp sheets of virgin paper and card are a joy to behold.

In the words of Bobbi Brown herself: “As a freelance artist, I used to shop at art stores. I’d look at the coloured pencils and tubes of paints and dreamed of art-store inspired make-up.”

The dream became reality, first with Bobbi Brown’s Art Sticks, coveted for their long-wearing, bright colours and convenience of having a lipstick and liner in one. Now, the updated version, Art Stick Liquid Lip, offers a super-pigmented, semi-matte lip colour in an easy-squeezy artist’s tube package.

Creamy, yet ultra-lightweight at the same time, Art Stick Liquid Lip provides a bold, strong look while conditioning lips with a moisturising formula. It is designed to be long-lasting (eight hours) and the squeezable tube application is perfect for carrying around and applying on the move. The range of 16 colours moves from nudes to brights to full-on bolds to suit every look.

Tips for application:

Give the tube a gentle squeeze. Emphasis on gentle, as you will get a much better finish by starting with a little product.

Coat the lower lip with the colour.

Press lips together.

Finish by perfecting the lip line.

Et voilà: A masterpiece.
