The Bobbi Brown Treatment Lip Shine is a very lightweight, softshine lipstick that is supposed to bring added moisture treatment to your lips. It has Cocoa and Shea Butters, Jojoba, Apricot Kernel and Avocado oils to moisturize, and vitamin C and Paracress to help stimulate collagen production, which the brand claims reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Technically, it is your lip balm, soft-shine lipstick and lip treatment in one.

They are housed in these chic black metal tubes that are reminiscent of the original MAC Slimshine lipsticks. It has the name Bobbi Brown conspicuously inscribed on the tube, and the product looks really sleek as it comes out of the gold-toned mini-shaft.

I tried the four shades and true to Bobbi Brown's description, these are indeed lightweight with a soft, luscious shine that is perfect for summer. My favorite is Pink Seashell, a really lovely peachy pink sheen that just makes my lips luscious-looking without the heavy shine of lipglosses. Sunset Beach is a bronzey shade that is great for medium to darker skintones. Peach Sorbet is a nice peach-coral shade, and Orchid Pink is a light cool pink. If you are looking for strong pigmentation or high-gloss, this product is not for you. These Lip Shines just impart the most subtle gloss and color, and has the lightweight look and feel that we most often associate with summer.

As for their lip pampering properties, I do attest that these Lip Shines moisturize and make the lips soft. However, I would still apply a lip balm underneath as there is some drag when it is applied on the lips; it doesn't glide as smooth and buttery on the lips as when you apply a lip balm beforehand. However, once it is applied, it feels moisturizing and soft on the skin. I would however still reapply lip balm as my lips are extra dry and would need the added moisture of a hydrating lip product.

All in all, this reminds me of MAC Sheen Supreme or Revlon Lip Butters, but without the super shiny finish. These Lip Shines have a soft shine but not gloss-like. It gives a soft sheen on the lips that is really pretty. I would use a separate lip balm with this as my lips are always chappy.
