Art Sticks are the newest lip product launched by Bobbi Brown. It is a combo of a lipstick and lip liner housed in a chunky pencil form. It applies smooth and creamy and has a matte finish. There are a total of eight shades to choose from and the color range is quite diverse. Each Art Stick currently retails for $26.00 USD and contains .2 oz of product and an enclosed sharpener is provided as well.

When applying the Art Stick as a lip liner one should use the point to gently line the outer edges of the lips. Then to apply as a lipstick one will need to hold the pencil at an angle against the lips to fill in the entire lip with color. Now the whole concept of a chunky / chubby lip pencil is not entirely new. Clinique and Max Factor had their chubby sticks way back in the late eighties and they are still as popular today as they were back then. For the longest time chubby sticks were my go-to lip product. So while the concept isn't entirely new the formulation has definitely been improved upon to the point where these will now last all day.

I purchased Rose Brown which, as the name suggests, is a warm rosy brown. Unfortunately it was a good bit darker than what I expected. So keep that in mind when purchasing them from the website. I would recommend exfoliating before applying these because they tend to enhance any lip imperfections such as dry or chapped lips. It didn't seem moisturizing but neither did it dry out my lips. Rose Brown wore for about eight hours with some slight fading after about five hours.
