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.

Bobbi Brown Miami Coral Rich Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Miami Coral Rich Lip Color ($23.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “nectar.” It looks surprisingly orange in the tube, and even still when swatched (but to a lesser degree), but it’s much pinker on the lips. I actually went back and swatched this just prior to writing out the review, because I was like, “What? This doesn’t look right!” It’s more like a pink coral with warm, yellow undertones once applied. MAC Flamingo is less opaque, less creamy-looking and a touch darker. Chanel Flirt is similar but a little less pale. MAC Blossom Culture is several shades pinker. MAC Ever Hip is similar but a touch less pink.

Bobbi Brown Wild Rose Rich Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Wild Rose Rich Lip Color ($23.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “raspberry pink.” It’s a lightened raspberry pink with a creamy finish (no shimmer) and opaque color coverage. Chanel Destinee is similar but a little darker, touch more red in it. MAC Deliciously Forbidden is deeper, darker. MAC Positively Dashing is darker, less bright. MAC Red Dwarf is much darker. Milani Sexy Rose is darker, redder, and frosted. Bobbi Brown Rose Blossom is darker. Bobbi Brown Plum Rose is darker and redder. The last two are similar, though.

Bobbi Brown Ultra Violet Sheer Color Lip Gloss

Bobbi Brown Ultra Violet Sheer Color Lip Gloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “sheer violet pink.” It’s a sheer pop of purpled pink with cool, berry-like undertones. This formula is supposed to be sheer, so the color is just right; it’s noticeable but not dominating and lets the natural lip color come through. I couldn’t think of a perfect dupe for the color, though. Illamasqua Move has similar coloring but it’s opaque, so it looks very different.

Bobbi Brown Cosmic Pink Sheer Color Lip Gloss

Bobbi Brown Cosmic Pink Sheer Color Lip Gloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “sheer neon pink.” If the formula name didn’t give it away: this gloss is designed to be sheer. It may look neon pink in the tube, but it gave my lips a tinted pink look–just a more intensified pink of my natural lip color (which looks like a corpse’s lips). Chanel Pink Pulsion is a bit more pigmented. MAC Electro Lush is more pigmented and shimmered.
