Bobbi’s new lip gloss combines gorgeous, light-catching shimmer with lasting, non-sticky shine. Made with fine pearls and clear pigments, High Shimmer Lip Gloss stays color-true and gives lips beautiful, brilliant dimension. Plus it’s enriched with emollients and Vitamins C and E to moisturize, condition and protect lips, so they feel as good as they look. Whether you wear it on its own or on top of your favorite Lip Color, the new tapered applicator lets you apply it like a pro.
After trying out MAC’s Superglasses, I was very keen on laying my hands on these high shimmer glosses from Bobbi Brown (I guess I am in a shimmer phase right now!). And to my surprise I got this sample size tube of one with their purchase recently. So lets see what I have to say about them…
Packaging wise they come in signature Bobbi Brown’s see through plastic tubes with glossy black cap containing the doe foot applicator. Simple & elegant! Even the sample tube are miniatures of the original packaging which gives a nice feeling. They have a fairly thick texture (though not as thick as MAC Superglasses) with high shimmer concentration and lacking major stickiness . The shimmers are very fine, say pearly which adds up for that glistening shine for a luscious juicy lips. They don’t travel post application.The formula feels quiet hydrating on lips without the need of any lip balm as long as they stay! They have faint minty fragrance which I like a lot, nothing overpowering & feels refreshing or may be adding up for that plumped lips. These glosses are not very pigment packed and doesn’t add much color. Rather loaded with multidimensional shimmers for that brilliant shine & suppleness. They come out quiet sheer compared to actual tube colors. On average they wear for 3-4 hours depending upon the shade intensity.
BELLINI is described as n*de pink with pearl which I find very apt for the shade. It’s a beautiful natural Peachy Pink with pink, golden & silver pearls for that brilliant dimensional shine. The shade tends to adapt the natural color of the lips than adding color. It’s very sheer with multidimensional shimmer & won’t be much helpful for pigmented lips. I love to layer this over sheer lipsticks. Bellini wore for about 2.5 hours on me after which the color vanished completely but the shimmers & the hydrating formula wore for an hour more.
To sum up, if you are looking for subdued version of MAC Superglasses, these are perfect picks. They have perfect formula consistency without being sticky and catches light beautifully with those multidimensional shimmers. Though there’s some compromise on the pigments here but they are naturally sheer with a super comfortable formula.
