While browsing in Nordstrom over the weekend I came across a new, whopping, 27-shade lipstick display at the Bobbi Brown counter. I am not sure how many of these are newly introduced colors or whether they will all be permanent additions to the line. I did notice that at least one of the shades (Pink Kiss) was released previously, in February of this year, as part of the Uber Pink collection. It looks like all of these are all in the "Lip Color" formula--Bobbi's classic, original lipstick formulation, described as providing creamy, semi-matte, full coverage.
The one shade I have to share with you today is Shell--a lovely, soft, warm peachy-nude. The formula is very creamy and opaque with a slight sheen, but without any noticeable shimmer. This is a great, versatile nude because it is quite understated yet has enough color to provide some brightness to the lips, so it can perform equally well as a complement to dramatic eye looks or as a casual, everyday shade.
Below is a comparison with a few of the other Bobbi Brown Lip Colors to give you a better sense of the color.
