It was a silent second blogiversary yesterday since I was really going through a hard week. I will have a post dedicated to that one and hoping to host a give-away too. I am travelling from Sunday on and there are lots of goodies I purchased today. I will try to post as much of them as possible before I fly. But there are a few other things I have to do so let's see how efficient I can work in the next two days.
Before I start with my hauls, here is something I chose from Bobbi Brown for Spring, Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color #7 Pale Peach and #10 Tawny Pink. Two gorgeous nudy creamy matte lipstick to go with for warm and cooler toned make-up.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color #10 Tawny Pink is a muted pink plum with natural undertones and matte finish. I am trying this formula for the first time and I am so surprised how pigmented it is. It is definitely more pigmented than Tom Ford Matte Lip Colors and most of my MAC matte lip colors as well. With one swipe you can get it opaque. The finish is called creamy matte, since it has a certain slip to it and feels nice and comfortable. The packaging is sleek, it has a safe click closure and sits tight on the bullet.

Once you see the swatch, you think it will be a statement lip but actually on me Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color #10 Tawny Pink is almost like a nude color which I can see myself wearing with more colorful eye makeup too. It is very long lasting too, it stays on me over 5 hours. I divide the lipsticks into two categories, the ones which can survive my morning coffeec& snack and ones which can't. This one definitely belongs to the former. Below I combined it with Tom Ford Frantic Pink on the cheeks.

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color #7 Pale Peach is a muted orange peach with warm undertones and matte finish. This one is also very pigmented and goes on opaque with just one swipe. After I swatched it, I was not sure if I could pull it off because I am not big on oranges on myself.

But it seems I can! At least I can pull this one off. I have to admit I even like it more than Tawny Pink which looks a lot like my other go to colors. Pale Peach is not too light, not too pastel and it has a lovely mutes quality which brightens up the complexion. It is absolutely love for me. I combine it with Tom Ford Flush Cheek Color below.

I pulled out some similar colors for your reference. MAC Oxblood from Toledo Collection (reviewed here) is just slightly cooler, it is also a tad lighter. Tom Ford First Time (reviewed here) has more pink thus cooler than Bobbi Brown Pale Peach.
Bobbi Brown Tawny Pink is warmer and deeper than both Tom Ford Pussycat (reviewed here) and MAC Nouvelle Vogue (reviewed here). Nouvelle Vogue is also less muted.

Check out Lily's review of Razzberry here and Crushed Plum here at ChloeAsh. It seems she like them as much as I do. And I definitely also need Chrushed Plum, if not for the shade, just for the name.
Final thoughts: When we are chasing for limited editions, we forget about treasures of permanent collections. These two colors are definitely all thumbs up from me. Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte formula is very pigmented, long lasting and very comfortable on the lips. I am especially loving Pale Peach for Spring looks.
