Bobbi Brown Pink Gold Rich Color Lipgloss

Bobbi Brown Pink Gold Rich Color Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft pink with gold pearl.” It’s a light pink with more shimmer than color–and lots of pale gold, beige, and gold shimmer paired with a high gloss sheen. It’s a lot like other peach/pink and gold shimmered glosses, including Hourglass Imagine, Cle de Peau #2, NARS Orgasm, NARS Super Orgasm, Chanel Bonbon, and Chanel Pin-up — though Bobbi Brown’s is decidedly pinker.

Beautiful Beginnings with Bobbi Brown

Beautiful Beginnings with Bobbi Brown

What was the first Bobbi Brownproduct you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first Bobbi Brown product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer:  I had never tried Bobbi Brown prior to blogging, but Bobbi Brown was one of the earlier brands that worked with Temptalia, back when I didn’t even know that blogs were important.  When our relationship started, we were in time to see what Bobbi had on the radar for Holiday ’07.  The first product I remember trying was Everything mascara, which is a really natural mascara overall.  It’s something I still recommend to readers looking for a little oomph but nothing dramatic.

Share your first time experiences with Bobbi Brown in the comments! :)
