Swipe-on lip formulas in soft to striking colors that complement any skin tone and look.
Lipstick is a makeup product used to add temporary color to the lips. Bobbi Brown lipstick, found in stores and online, comes in various forms, from traditional lipstick to gloss to lip pencil and more. The type of lipstick you want to use will depend on the coverage, finish, durability, and look you’re going for.
When it comes to coloring the lip, it's essential to carefully follow your lip shape, whether that’s full, top-heavy, thin, round, or otherwise. Start by using a lip liner to outline your lips. From there, apply your chosen lip color to the top lip, and then press your lips together. Finally, continue your lipstick application by touching up areas for an all-over even color appearance.
Choosing the best lip color can be one of the more challenging aspects of putting together a personal makeup look, but experimenting and getting expert help make it easier. Choose a color, from bright red lips to nude lipstick shades, that suits you and your makeup look. Whether you decide on natural-looking lipstick shades or bold colors, lipstick or gloss help add identity to your makeup look. Ultimately, the best lip color for you is one that completes your overall look and complements your skin tone and undertone. Use our Virtual Try-On tool to see yourself in a variety of lip shades, or connect with an artist for some pro tips.
It's vital to have good lip liner makeup. Lip liner can help lips look fuller and add definition. In addition, lip liner helps even out the shape of your lips to create overall symmetry. Typically, you want to select a lip liner color within the same color family as the lip shade you're going to wear. Also, if you’re going for a more natural look, choose a lip liner that’s similar to your natural lip shade. If you’re wondering what shade will work best for you, connect with one of our artists via chat.
There are a variety of ways for applying liquid lipstick, but traditionally it’s done with a doe-foot applicator wand or lip brush. Liquid lipstick like our Crushed Liquid Lip almost always comes with an applicator, so use that to glide your chosen color across your top lip, press your lips together, and then use the wand to touch up. You can also use our Lip Brush to apply lip color with exacting precision. For a customized look, layer complementary colors on your lips.
For lipstick that lasts the day, first make sure you apply your chosen long-wear lip shade to hydrated lips. It’s also a good idea to exfoliate your lips and add a balm before applying lipstick as part of your regimen. A lipstick’s finish also helps determine how long it will last.

Removing lipstick doesn’t have to be a challenge. When removing lip color, it’s important to know the type of formula you’re wearing, so you know whether to use a long-wear makeup remover, such as our Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover. To remove lipstick, lightly dampen your lips and apply remover using your fingers or a cotton pad. Then, rinse and wipe your lips to remove any excess color.
