Bobbi Brown Holiday Lipgloss Trio

Bobbi Brown Holiday Lipgloss Trio ($38.00 for 3 x 0.14 fl. oz.) includes these three shades: Bare Sparkle (champagne with pearl), Pastel (soft pink with pink pearl), and Aubergine (deep grape plum). This was easily the holiday product that I used the most this past holiday season, and ultimately, it was what made me really fall in love with Bobbi Brown’s High Shimmer formula.

Though we’re really diving head first into spring already (it seems far too early), I still have a meaty backlog of products from the holidays I’d like to share with you, including this gem.  This set is still available at a lot of retailers online, plus all the shades in the trio can also be bought individually in full-size.

  • Bare Sparkle is virtually colorless on the lips but imparts a ton of fine sparkle on lips along with a high gloss shine.  This shade is similar to a lot of barely-there glosses that have a healthy dose of shimmer in them.
  • Pastel is a sheer, soft pink with pink and gold shimmer with a glossy shine. It emphasizes the natural pinkness in my lip color but is still see-through. I kept reaching for this one and layering it over darker reds and berries.  The hue reminded me of Chanel Imaginaire but with less sparkle.
  • Aubergine is a red-plum with very, very subtle gold sparkle. This is part of the regular Lipgloss line-up.  It’s the most opaque gloss of the three, and it’s semi-opaque at that.  It doesn’t settle too much into lip lines and has a nice glossy finish.  Chantecaille Patina looks a bit like it but has more sparkle.

I’ve already extolled the virtues of High Shimmer Lipglosses enough in the past week, but to briefly recap: ultra glossy, non-sticky, wears four hours or so, moisturizing, and absolutely dazzling and sparkling. Aubergine, which is just a regular Lipgloss, performs well, too; it’s comfortable, non-sticky, and wears four hours or so.

Something I dig about this trio is that all three shades are part of Bobbi Brown’s permanent range, so if you find you love any one enough and have run out of it, you can pick up just that shade later on. There’s still plenty of gloss in each tube (0.14 fl. oz. vs. 0.24 fl. oz. for full-sized glosses) but for less than the price of two, you get to test out three different shades. Bare Sparkle and Aubergine also look lovely layered!

A
One of my favorite holiday sets and products, and it's really one I kept reaching and going back to! I don't normally wear gloss on its own, but when I did something really simple (like just brows and mascara), I used one of these to pull it all together.

  4. All three of these colors are lovely! I like that they are significantly different but layer-able.

  5. Too sheer for my taste.

    You look so lovely and radiant! Would you mind sharing what you are wearing on your eyes and cheeks? :)

    the sparkle on these look lovely! there’s something about the packaging for bobbi brown glosses, though, that i really dislike, so i never get excited about them. actually, i think that goes for almost all bobbi brown products… the packaging just does not appeal to me. it’s simple in a way that doesn’t look or feel luxurious.
