My husband bought me the High Shimmer lip gloss in Pastel (a bright pink) as a gift. As always the Bobbi Brown packaging is elegant and stylish, a nice rectangular tube with a screw top black lid which pulls out to reveal a soft brush applicator, and a transparent tube showing the gloss. At first look I saw the shimmery pink gloss in the tube and thought it was too much for me but thought I would give it a try.
The scent of this lip gloss is beautiful - it is slightly pepperminty and smells really fresh and revitalising. The brush is lovely and soft and a very good shape for applying the gloss evenly (big enough to get a good amount of gloss but still allows you to be precise in your application). When I applied the gloss I was shocked at how lovely the colour looked. There was quite a bit of shimmer, but instead of looking overly sparkly or tacky it gave a volumising effect and I felt able to wear it as an everyday lipstick rather than having to save it for parties.
The texture is absolutely perfect, with a big hit of moisture and no stickiness whatsoever. It glides onto the lips with no need for primer or lip balm and lasts for hours. When the pink glossy colour has worn off, you are left with a bit of sparkle, which can look a bit odd, but it is easily removed (or a quick reapplication fixes the problem). I absolutely love this product and look forward to extending my collection!
