Bobbi Brown Art Sticks in limited edition shades Hot Pink and Hot Orange

I’m feeling thoroughly spoilt on the colour-pop matte lipstick front. Bobbi Brown has expanded its new-ish Art Sticks line of fat lip pencils with three hi-vis shades; Hot Pink and Hot Orange (both shown above) and Hot Berry (not shown).
