Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Calypso Review and Swatches

Hello my sunshines,

 

A couple of months back I was in New Delhi and I was so excited and thrilled to go to the  Bobbi Brown store that the moment I reached Select City Walk I literally ran my way through and reached the store. My husband was sort of shocked to see my behavior when I was rushing towards the store. HaHa…Bobbi Brown is a makeup brand that has always attracted me, I wanted to buy their stuff for a long time  but as neither it is available in my town nor available online so I had to wait till I had an opportunity to go to Delhi to grab some stuff. I wanted to check some out some lipsticks as I had heard a lot about them. A few months back I read a post on Indian Makeup and Beauty Blog where Rati had posted the swatches of all Bobbi Brown lipsticks and after seeing them I was really excited to buy some of them. At the store the MUA suggested some shades as per my complexion and I finally came down to 4 shades. I wanted to buy only 2 lipstick so after swatching them once again I narrrowed down to 2 shades i.e. Calypso and Nude. Calypso is Bobbi Brown’s most popular shades and is one of their bestsellers too. So here is the  Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Calypso Review and Swatches.

Company Description:

Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Matte Lip Color combines the look of a classic matte lip with incredible wearability. Creamy and moisturizing, it glides on comfortably and feels light-as-air. Not to mention that it’s got staying power too(it won’t budge for 8 hours). Inspired by the way she was creating for Fashion Week, Bobbi set out to develop the perfect color range, everything from nudes to brights to bolds. We’re pretty sure you’ll want more than one colour.

Rs.2100 for 3.6 grams.

Packaging of the Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Calypso:

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Calypso has a very posh looking glossy black cylindrical case with Bobbi Brown written on it in BOLD LETTERS. The case shuts with a soft snap and it feels oh-so classy and luxurious. The tip of the lipstick is flat rather than being pointed.

Texture/ Formula of the Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Calypso:

Calypso has a very creamy formula which settles down to a semi-matte finish. It glides on the lips without any tugging or pulling. The formula of the lipstick is not that drying on the lips as other matte lipsticks are. It is very light weight on the lips and is very comfortable too. Being a matte lipstick it requires a little bit of preparation to wear it. Proper exfoliation and moisturization of the lips is necessary before wearing this lipstick. Calypso does not settle in lip lines but it does highlight dry and flaky lips so I suggest proper exfoliation of the lips beforehand. It does not bleed at all so that is a big YAYY for me.

Shade of the Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Calypso:

Calypso has been described as a “Pink Coral” on the official site and I would say it is a hot, bright coralish pink that has an intense red undertone to it. It is definitely an attention grabbing color. It is a bright lipstick which instantly brightens up the face and makes you look much fairer. It will suit fair to medium skintones, certainly not for dusky beauties. I can also spot some tiny coppery gold sheen in this lipstick which adds a bit of spark to my look.

Pigmentation of the Swatch of the Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Calypso:

Calypso is a highly pigmented lip color and it goes opaque in one single swipe but I like to apply it twice to make everything look even. It covers all the lip pigmentation too.

Staying Power of the Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Calypso:

The wear time of this lipstick is quiet long. It stays on my lips for a good 4-5 hours. After eating and drinking it fades into a very subtle coralish tint.

My Experience:

I am truly, madly and deeply in love with this beauty. It is such a bright pinkish coral shade which makes me fall in love with it every time I wear it. As I have always loved bright and bold lip colors this one has become one of my most loved lip colors these days. It is highly pigmented, the formula is so creamy and it feels light on the lips too. It is not very hydrating or moisturizing but it does not dry out my lips either. The packaging of the lipstick is so sleek and classy and it feels so luxurious. The staying power of this one is amazing as it stays on my lips for 5 hours without fading. I feel this shade is going to suit majority of the skintones. It lights up my face and is the perfect day time as well as the night time shade. A bit of foundation on my face, smudged brown liner on my lashline, a pink blush on my cheeks and Calypso on my lips is enough to brighten up any dull or boring day.
