Giorgio Armani #500 Gloss d’Armani

Giorgio Armani #500 Gloss d’Armani ($28.00 for 0.22 fl. oz.) is a soft, sheer pink with lots of white shimmer. It adds a hint of additional rosiness to my natural lip color, but it primarily adds lots of white shimmer and sparkle. It looks like any number of sheer lipglosses, so it’s more of a product you pick up if you don’t have too many sheer glosses already and really love the formula.

Chanel Charme Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Charme Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pink.” Sometimes brands get too creative with their color descriptions, but Chanel could afford to be less glib! It’s a soft, medium pink with very subtle blue undertones and a silver micro-shimmer that gives it a lightly frosted finish. The color payoff is semi-opaque–it gives decent color but there is some translucency in the color so your natural lip color will peek through. MAC Behave Yourself is similar but applies less evenly and perhaps a touch lighter. Dolce & Gabbana Fascination is similar in hue but several shades darker. MAC Speed Dial is a bit darker and has a golden sheen.

Bobbi Brown Holiday Lipgloss Trio

Bobbi Brown Holiday Lipgloss Trio ($38.00 for 3 x 0.14 fl. oz.) includes these three shades: Bare Sparkle (champagne with pearl), Pastel (soft pink with pink pearl), and Aubergine (deep grape plum). This was easily the holiday product that I used the most this past holiday season, and ultimately, it was what made me really fall in love with Bobbi Brown’s High Shimmer formula.

Bobbi Brown Naked Plum High Shimmer Lipgloss

Bobbi Brown Naked Plum High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “rosy brown with pink pearl.” It’s a pale pink-mauve and gold shimmered rosy plum hued gloss with tons of sparkle and high gloss shine. This one looks phenomenal when worn, because it delivers mostly opaque color coverage. NARS Oasis is sheerer and less plum. Dior Mauve Accent is pinker. MAC Quick Change is a little less plum and has more copper shimmer.
