Bobbi Brown Plum Gold High Shimmer Lipgloss
Bobbi Brown Plum Gold High Shimmer Lipgloss

Bobbi Brown Plum Gold High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “plum with bronze pearl.” It’s like a deep, berry red with gold shimmer. The color coverage is semi-opaque, and this particular shade does settle into lip lines a bit and doesn’t apply perfectly even, unfortunately, though I think both things are less noticeable at a normal viewing distance. For someone who loves the color, you could also consider layering it over a lipstick, which will minimize both issues. Chantecaille Patina is not as berry, more of a red. MAC Lasting Achievement is more opaque and berry hued. It’s very similar to Dolce & Gabbana Amethyst but Plum Gold has the gold shimmer.

I am kind of IN LOVE with Bobbi Brown’s High Shimmer Lipglosses, actually. They have such an amazing sparkle-factor–all dazzle without any tackiness and shine from miles away. Really glossy, shimmery, and comfortable to wear as they’re fairly moisturizing and wear around four hours–even the lighter shades. You may have felt I was more lukewarm than ecstatic in my initial review, and I was, but as I’ve been wearing several of the shades throughout the past couple of months, I’m now ready to tell you that I’m loving them.

Even though I love the formula and this particular shade, it does have issues applying evenly, which affected both the pigmentation and application scores.

    The shade isn’t that unique, but I love berry colours and the shimmer is really gorgeous! It looks great on you too, Christine!

    Such a beautiful color! Christine, what are you wearing on your eyes? It’s subtle, but glowing and gorgeous.

    Aww, such a pretty color, but so uneven! =[

    Hmmm…this is not nice. I’m really disappointed. I was considering ordering some of these.

  8. MissMercurial

    Ooh, promising! I really dislike the MAC lipglass formula so I’m crossing my fiingers that this is a good replacement for Lasting Achievement.

  9. I love the colour, but wish it were more opaque. But, as you mentioned, you can always layer the gloss over a lipstick.

    To me, this is the perfect festive lip colour!

    It looks beautiful on you, Christine. Really, these are nice lip glosses, I love them & frankly, most wear about the same way, nearly always settle into lip lines. I think glosses are great for day-wear, rather a casually polished look but still looking dynamite! I always have to re-apply them often & don’t expect them to last long so you really have to take them as they are; they are just basic glosses & supposed to be sheer-ish side. I never expect them to perform as a lipstick or a laquer no matter what they say but they’re really just casual color lip glosses when on the go & just want a pop of color & look nice. Always great in a pinch when you need some color or layering a lipstick that needs a bit of ooompf! Pity they are so expensive for the results you get.

    I find the BB lipglosses to be the worst out of their entire line. hate, hate, hate them! and I have tried them several times in palette and in tube form. Yeah the color is great but dupe-able.

  12. Iris

    Would you say this is a lip gloss version of macs oh oh oh?

  13. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Heather Heather

    Lovely! Christine, what lipstick would you recommend wearing this over?

  14. Melissa

    I love this over MAC What Joy! lipstick. It. Looks. Bangin’.

    This color is probably my favorite out of the High Shimmer Glosses.

    I love the texture and look of these glosses, but I can’t STAND the minty smell :(
    Makes me so sad!

    Love the color, but really hate how uneven it looks when applied! Wish it were more opaque. But otherwise, beautiful!

    I just bought this color with the bronzed heather. I love these glosses, and it is all wear. I haven’t found a liner or color for underneath it, but I love how it looks on its own.
