Bobbi Brown – High Shimmer Lip Gloss
Recently I was able to test the new High Shimmer Lip Gloss from Bobbi Brown. The girls from the Parfümerie Pieper (a German drugstore chain) send me a letter and a cute note, including the nicely wrapped lip gloss.
I got the color 02 – Pink Tulle, which is a not-so-bright pink. But it does definitely look pink – at least in the packaging.
This is what Bobbi Brown says about this gloss:
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 colour-true and gives lips beautiful, brilliant dimension. Plus it’s enriched with emollients and Vitamins C and E to moisturise, condition and protect lips, so they feel as good as they look. Whether you wear it on its own or on top of your favourite Lip Color, the new tapered applicator lets you apply it like a pro.
(Ignore my flaky skin around my lips – it was a no make-up day).
After applying I had to realize two things: the color of the packaging does not resemble the color on my lips afterwards. The effect comes close to zero. My lips are naturally already quite red and you can see barely any color. It rather looks like I am wearing a see-through lip gloss with glitter in it (not bad, but maybe not quite wanted by Bobbi Brown). But at least that way you are without a problem able to wear the gloss on top of your favorite lip stick.
Second (and this is actually quite great): the product smells like mint. And the mint you can feel on your lips as well. I am a huge fan of chap sticks with mint inside, which make my lips tingle. So this attribute of the gloss is quite of my liking 🙂
