Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Sandwash Pink

Every year, I have to get my hands on a copy of Cosmopolitan's August issue, since it's their big beauty special! I am intrigued with the products that have received their stamp of approval for their annual beauty awards.

Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Sandwash Pink

One product that caught my attention was Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Sandwash Pink, which received the award for Best Nude Lipstick for 2013.

I have the exact same shade in my Bobbi Brown palette, so I figured I might as well share a swatch with you.

I love this shade, but I'm guilty of ignoring in my kit, since it comes in a palette and I don't want to bring the entire thing when I go out, and I don't like dipping my fingers into lipsticks. Look's like I've been missing out all along! I'm actually not very familiar with all the lip color shades of Bobbi Brown, so let's just say I just found out that they do have a full-sized tube version of this. Yay! If I were to splurge on a nude, my lips but better shade, this would have to be it!


  • Creamy matte texture
  • Very natural looking - no shimmer!
  • A my lips but better shade
  • Not too drying, but a little bit of lip balm would help to prevent lips from drying/chapping
  • Color does not easily transfer, though you'd have to reapply for sure after eating
  • No strong scent
  • Pink beige shade looks very nice on fair skin
  • Versatile shade, can be applied lightly or heavily, good for day and night

  • Pricey
  • Packaging of the full-sized lip color looks a bit "old" for my taste

As seen in Cosmopolitan August 2013:

I'll now transfer this lip color from my palette to a small jar so I could use it everyday! I'd love to know, what's your my lips but better shade? :)
