Bobbi Brown Citrus High Shimmer Lipgloss
Bobbi Brown Citrus High Shimmer Lipgloss

Bobbi Brown Citrus High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright coral with pearl.” It’s an orange-coral base with pink, gold, and silver shimmer. MAC Strictly Plutonic gives similar color but has no shimmer. NARS Viva is more opaque and has no shimmer. MAC Dynasty at Dusk is lighter and less sparkly. Chanel Coral Reef is pinker.

Citrus wore for four and a half hours, and I’ve probably worn it half a dozen times since photographing it a few weeks ago.  I recently added it to the other two Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lipglosses I keep in my purse for on-the-go color.  It tints my natural lip color a darker coral color; it’s not really opaque such that it masks my natural lip color, but it does significantly alter mine by darkening and brightening it.  It has a high shimmer content that makes it less see-through.  Overall, I’d say it’s closer to being semi-sheer than semi-opaque, but the shimmer masks some of that sheerness.  The range varies from sheer to semi-sheer bordering on semi-opaque.  It’s moisturizing, comfortable to wear, and not gritty (nor does the sparkle travel).

For a semi-sheer sparkling coral gloss, Citrus is a great pick. It wears well, is hydrating, and the sparkle won't travel all over your face while you wear it!

  1. Oh, man. Love at first sight!

  2. Sssso sssssparkly… I do like the color though. Now if they’d just take away the glitter… :-)

  3. Very pretty, but a tad too shimmery for me. This would be nice to wear during the holidays though

    Gorgeous color!

    Just curious Christine, what are the other go to high shimmer glosses you keep in your purse?

  5. LMM

    That lipgloss is gorgeous! On you and in the container both. I have never really worn Bobbi Brown before but I want this.

    Also, I adore your earrings!

    Very pretty color. I have yet to find a Bobbi Brown lipgloss that I don’t like. Also, I love your earrings.

  7. caroline F.

    This is by far one of the best makeup I’ve seen you with. Not overdone, not underdone either. Just perfect.

  8. Weird, because I love this formula and purchased based on your previous reviews, but for some reason this particular colour isn’t working for me.

    hey christine! is this the citrus 4 lip gloss?

  11. Liz

    Wow. I’m surprised so many people said leave it. That’s a really pretty lipgloss. I think I’ll put it on my wishlist.

    Annnd another one I want :) I think at this point I’m just going to give up and collect them all. I have about seven now!

    This is beautiful, I love when you review these lipglosses.

  15. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Terri Terri

    So pretty and sparkly. Why don’t I own any of these? Hmmm….

  16. I wouldn’t get much use out of it and I can’t justify paying that much for a lipgloss BUT I do think it is SUCH a pretty color.

    I might have to grab this! I love sheer, sparkly coral glosses for days when I’m not wearing much makeup, but want something on my lips. This looks perfect!

  18. Amanda

    I’ve been wanting to get one of these glosses for a while but I’m having trouble deciding which one would be best for me. I’m really pale with cool undertones and my lips are really pigmented. I’m leaning towards this one but I keep changing my mind all the time. Which one do you think would look best for my coloring? Thanks!!

  19. Kate

    I went out and got this based on your rec, and now I’m totally obsessed! My lips say thank you – going to wait for Lord and Taylor’s F&F sale before picking up Electric Violet and Pink Sequin!

    Bought this today. LOVE! So happy I finally decided to get one of these – you have been raving about them for so long!

  21. Hey Christine, something really bizarre is happening with this article – the picture are repeating and the written review cuts off halfway through and starts again.

    • Thanks, Jade! We went through a bunch of posts to update the image locations and looks like I pasted in the redo without clearing out the original!
