Bobbi Brown Beach High Shimmer Lipgloss
Bobbi Brown Beach High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “pink bronze with pearl.” It’s a rosy brown with pink and gold shimmer. At a glance, it reminded me of Bobbi Brown Canary, which is sheer with a ton of gold sparkle (but no pink). MAC Fancy Cat is darker, browner. MAC Spree is very similar but has a more metallic sheen.
Bobbi Brown’s High Shimmer Lipgloss is well-put–it’s ridiculously shimmery and sparkly. Beach is semi-opaque; the color darkens my natural lip color and adds a fine dusting of shimmer along with larger pink and gold sparkle. It has a lightweight, comfortable feel on the lips with a non-sticky consistency and is mint-scented. I love that it never feels gritty, not when you initially apply it nor when it fades away (after about four hours), and it doesn’t travel. The formula is also moisturizing with just enough thickness that it glides and applies evenly.
