Bobbi Brown Uber Suede High Shimmer Lipgloss

Would You Rock Brown Lipgloss?

Bobbi Brown Uber Suede High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-tone golden beige.” It’s a medium-dark brown with yellow undertones and pink and gold shimmer. NARS More is the closest in color, but it doesn’t have any shimmer and looks a bit more like a lipstick when applied. Bobbi Brown Canary has similar gold sparkle but has no real base color. MAC Bright & Perky is sheerer.

Uber Suede is mostly opaque, and it applies evenly without settling into lip lines.  It’s a warmer brown, but it doesn’t look too orange or red.  The formula is hydrating, comfortable to wear, and the sparkle doesn’t travel.  This shade wore five hours on me, which is longer than average.  It has a mint scent with no discernible taste.  The texture isn’t too thick or too thin, and it is non-sticky.

This is definitely a more modern brown--it's more like a variation on nude, and deeper complexions will look exceptionally lovely in a shade like this.

  1. I really like it! It’s different! And I love your earrings :)

  2. I wasn’t so sure about the color from the swatch but it looks absolutely beautiful on your lips. I want to go see how it looks on me. Great Fall color – a nice alternative to all the burgundy lips

  3. Definitely not my color, but I like how it looks on you.

    I have a Crabtree and Evelyn lip gloss that is very similar to this!

  5. Kathrina

    That’s so pretty. Do you think it will match blue eyes?

  6. This looks almost like a shimmery milk chocolate. Pretty, but probably wouldn’t be very flattering on me. I may have to reserve judgment until I try it on, though. :D

    your earrings look great on you! :) so fall ! xx

  8. Jenny

    Color is not as pretty on your hand, but looks gorgeous on your lips!

  9. This one is great–very pigmented and reminds me a little of caramel! :)

  10. Wow…I probably would have skipped this based on the swatch alone as I would have assumed the color wouldn’t really do much for my skintone but it looks gorgeous on you. I definitely will avoid trying this on myself or I just might break my no-buy self restriction lol. I’m trying to make it through at least a month at a time…and I’m already being tempted with only a week in lol

  11. Liz

    hm… to each their own, but I definitely wouldn’t go brown like that

    This seems lovely for fall. I might have to try this out as I have a bit of brown in my lips.

  13. I almost purchased this one with my last Saks haul since I was so impressed with Firefly. I’m glad I didn’t as it is too dark to be a neutral on me, but I think it would look lovely on deeper skintones.

    Christine, you look absolutely beautiful with cosmetics you are wearing. It allows your beautiful features & coloring to be enhanced. I am sure even Milan will come out of his partial slumber to raise an eye brow!

    I think this is now added to my list of wants from this line. Although I’m afraid it might be too brown for me. Christine, do you think NW15 could pull this off? Dark hair/eyes?

    U have no clue how much u made me happy… I just jumped in happiness when i saw this post… I was looking for the exact shade and i was so unhappy that the similar shade that i was using got discontinued… I was desperately searching for the dupe for the whole of last week and almost gave up… My only prayer is that, this should be the exact shade when i wear ;D Thanks a ton for this review :o)

  17. This is so gorgeous on you. I would never have expected a brown to look so sophisticated! It just makes me want to get a Bobbi Brown lipgloss even more ;) Thanks for the post!

    Any grittiness to the glitter or residual glitter as the gloss wears off? And are your lips still comfortable after wearing? Can you tell I’m a picky shopper?

    • No grittiness! You’ll definitely have some glitter still on as it wears away, but it doesn’t travel anywhere :) It’s a hydrating formula, so my lips feel better after wearing it.

    Quite a bit too brown for my redder lips, I think–but definitely a great autumnal sort of color!

  20. Avril

    I had an old avon one in a similar colour. It was a favourite, and I finally threw it out after I found the consistency had changed. Of course it’s not offered anymore and my new avon brown smells like fake chocolate and isn’t so nice. Definitely a fan of this kind of brown, even though I rarely wear them anymore.

    Please review the whole pretty powerful “uber” collection. I know its a reincarnation of some old colors, but its been so hard to find real warm browns lately, I’d love some guidance to this new crop of neutrals out this fall. Thanks.
