Bobbi Brown Electric Violet High Shimmer Lipgloss
Bobbi Brown Electric Violet High Shimmer Lipgloss

Bobbi Brown Electric Violet High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink with violet pearl.” It’s a semi-opaque medium-dark pink with fuchsia-pink shimmer and a glossy shine. It’s a little cooler-toned (more fuchsia) compared to MAC Dare to Dare, so MAC If It’s Pink comes a bit closer but still pinker. MAC Totally Bang is also similar but darker.

I’m a big fan of Bobbi Brown’s newest gloss; it took me a bit surprise, much as my appreciation for Chanel Glossimers happened over time, but these are my latest go-to when I want something super sparkling to wear alone or over a lipstick. It’s a non-sticky formula that moisturizes, wears for four hours or so, and looks like shimmering water when worn. I love that the shimmer isn’t gritty–you won’t feel rough glitter/shimmer as the gloss wears off at all–and it doesn’t turn tacky over time either. Electric Violet is really lovely over a red, especially blue-based ones.

It's a versatile shade of pink, because it's wearable on its own, but it's sheer (but still pigmented enough to alter colors!) enough to allow a lipstick to show through. The sparkle/shine factor of these lipglosses is outrageous, which is why I love them so much!

    What a great color! Are these glosses scented?

  3. What a gorgeous color! I love bright pinks, this looks like a great way to wear the color sheer!

  4. Good timing! I was just looking at these and trying to decide what color to get! I’d heard they weren’t very pigmented, which is fine, but I want it to at least show up. This one seems perfect, just the amount of pigmentation for a MLBB/brightening look~. And such a pretty shimmer too!

    Ps. Congrats :D

    I went out bought two High shimmer glosses. I bought bellini and bare sparkle. I want the electric violet and two other glosses. I can already image this gloss over a fushia or fushia/violet lipstick like Sephora’s rouge cream in #10(Mr. Lover).
