|Bobbi has sized up all her glosses to give you an extra dose of shine. Lip Gloss is formulated with soothing botanical extracts – including Avocado, Jojoba and Chamomile Oils, and Aloe Extract – to keep lips soft and supple; plus the new tapered applicator lets you apply it like a pro. Scented with a hint of Vanilla.|
Bobbi Brown lip glosses comes in transparent rectangular plastic vials with black cap containing the tapered doe foot applicator. The packaging is very simple & ordinary yet has got an exquisite feel to it for which I highly adore Bobbi Brown packaging.
Formula wise these glosses are on thicker side with nice creamy texture which is sufficiently moisturizing without peeking into those fine lip lines. However they are significantly sticky attracting hair strands & food bits which is very annoying. But that means they are here to stay for long! The pigmentation varies through the range. The shades do hold slight translucency and do needs couple of swipes for that complete opaque coverage. Having said that, they are pigmented enough for good coverage in single go if not completely opaque. They have this mild caramel fragrance which is not overwhelming but does linger for some time post application. The formula applies smoothly & evenly keeping the lips well moisturized till the wear time. They give a nice healthy shine without going OTT making lips look healthier & fuller. These glosses comes in wide array of shades but the sticky formula puts me off especially when we have much more comfortable long wearing formulas out there without major compromise in the formula.
BUFF is very aptly described as A Beige Pink by Bobbi Brown and that’s how exactly the shade replicates on me. Unfortunately it comes out clear on my moderately pigmented lips adding nothing! It feels more like a balm with stickiness. But I love to use this to add some shine to my matte neutrals and to tone down the colors if required. I won’t recommend this shade for Indian Skintones (especially after NC 35-40) as might not show up in most of the cases. It has got a buildable pigmentation as per my hand swatches (it’s clear on my lips). Buff wears for 3-4 hours on me before I could sense the stickiness going down. See more pics & swatches:
- Sleek & elegant packaging.
- Soft creamy texture.
- Gives a healthy shine to lips.
- Formula does not peek into fine lines or highlight any flaws.
- Nicely pigmented.
- Long wearing.
- Mildly scented.
- Comes in large array of shades.
- The stickiness in the texture is quite uncomfortable as it attracts food bits & hair strands.
They have got a nice creamy & moisturizing formula with good pigmentation & wear power but the stickiness is a major put off! BUFF is a nice neutral shade which will be MLLB shade for many but I can also see it washing off skintones going down NC40. On my NC42 skintone with moderately pigmented lips it comes out clear!
