My Experience With Bobbi Brown Sheer Lip Color Passion Fruit:
Packaging: The packaging is really simple and classy. It has got all glossy black sleek plastic body. The brand name 'Bobbi Brown' is written on it. It is very sleek and can be easily fit into jeans pocket or bag. The cap shuts tightly with a click sound. The outer packaging has all the details mentioned on it. The packaging speaks for its name, it is so luxurious to own such a rich lipstick.
Shade: The shade I have is Passion Fruit. It is a sheer pink coral color which looks a little neon-ish. Since it is from their Sheer collection range, it looks dark in the bullet but it goes little sheer on the lips. It gives a perfect hint of color to the lips. It is very summery and pretty color to wear during day or night time. This particular shade would suit fair to medium skin tones. This might wash out dark skinned people.
Texture/Formula: The texture is very soft, smooth and creamy. It glides like magic and is very moist. Since it is creamy, it transfers a lot. It is devoid of shimmer and glitter but has a gorgeous sheen to it. It looks glossy and remains like that for good amount of time. It doesn't settle into fine lines and doesn't accentuate the creases. But still, prepping the lips before applying this creamy lipstick is advisable as any single dead skin would ruin the look.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is quite nice for their Sheer collection. It goes light pinkish on the first swatch but you can layer it up with 2-3 swipes to intensify the color.
Staying Power: I am really impressed with its staying power. Despite being sheer and creamy, it stays for around 5+ hours. The sheen wears off within 2 hours but the color remains intact. I was surprised that even after drinking tea, washing face 3 times, flossing and wiping the face, the color didn't budge. It lightened but it left a beautiful tint on the lips. It wears off without drying the lips.

Diva Likes Rating:
I am happy with the color and the texture. I love lipsticks which stay for long without any need for touch-ups. This lipstick fulfills this criterion and I love it. Since the price is exorbitant, I am sure you will find a perfect dupe for it. But owning one won't harm anyway and it stays longer than other sheer, creamy lipsticks out there in the market. For a creamy lipstick to stay on lips is a task in itself and this does the job well.
