Bobbi Brown Beach High Shimmer Lipgloss
Bobbi Brown Beach High Shimmer Lipgloss

Bobbi Brown Beach High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink bronze with pearl.” It’s a rosy brown with pink and gold shimmer. At a glance, it reminded me of Bobbi Brown Canary, which is sheer with a ton of gold sparkle (but no pink). MAC Fancy Cat is darker, browner. MAC Spree is very similar but has a more metallic sheen.

Bobbi Brown’s High Shimmer Lipgloss is well-put–it’s ridiculously shimmery and sparkly. Beach is semi-opaque; the color darkens my natural lip color and adds a fine dusting of shimmer along with larger pink and gold sparkle.  It has a lightweight, comfortable feel on the lips with a non-sticky consistency and is mint-scented.  I love that it never feels gritty, not when you initially apply it nor when it fades away (after about four hours), and it doesn’t travel.  The formula is also moisturizing with just enough thickness that it glides and applies evenly.

This is a great grab-and-go gloss, because it's neutral without being too dark or too pale. There's enough color to significantly tint your lips, but it's not too bold or bright. If you love shimmer and sparkle, this is worth checking out!

    Not really my color, it looks far prettier in the tube in my opinion. However, I LOVE this formula and am planning on picking up Naked Plum soon because of your review.

    That is lovely. My wallet’s already protesting but my lips are cheering.

    How do you think this compares to the Jemma Kidd Bronze lip gloss color sold at Target?

  4. This looks like such a flattering and versatile shade! Love colors like this :)

    I love how pigmented this lip gloss is..but sooo much sparkle!  I don’t think I could pull it off lol.. It is a great summer color though..

     Sparkle wise, what is a good cheap dupe for this gloss? (I don’t care about the color, but I love the gorgeous sparkle!)

    I bought my first Bobbi Brown lipgloss yesterday and I LOVE the formula!!!!! It is soo long lasting and moisturizing. I got mine in the color Confetti! So perfect with MAC’s Angel lipstick ;)

    I think a gloss with such shimmer and that is long lasting and non-sticky is definitely worth checking out! I love the color too – I’m looking for something to splurge on, so this might be it! I love your earrings too, Christine!

    Question for you! Have you found any dupes of MAC Lipglass in Spree? I love this colour but I haven’t been able to find anything similar by myself…:)
