Bobbi Brown Treatment Lip Shine spf 15 in Papaya
The formula includes Apricot, Shea, Cocoa, Illipe, Jojoba, Babassu, Avocado and Olive oils/butters, and claims to moisturise and improve the condition of the lips over time. It also includes a -cinnamate compound to provide spf 15 sun protection, and I'm slightly wary of this because my lips don't generally do very well with lip products with chemical sunscreen in it. There's no fragrance listed in the ingredients, but it has a pleasant faint slightly creamy/fruity smell from the natural ingredients.
Applied: I'm actually quite surprised by how well the Bobbi Brown Treatment Lip Shine does seem to plump out and smooth the lines in my lips. It gives decent colour too, for a treatment/shine product, although it doesn't last for very long (it stands up against most standard lipsticks though, and does leave a bit of a tint of colour). I think I can feel a bit of a tingle from the chemical sunscreen in it but that could be psychological and I will report back if I have to discontinue use due to irritation (at the moment, my lips feel comfortable and in good condition after a couple of days' continuous use).
At 2g, you don't get very much product either, and I could see myself using it up quickly if I was a normal person who only had a handful of different lip colour products. It stands up pretty well as an alternative to the Chantecaille Lip Chics, if you don't want to spend quite that much on a lip product.
