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 describes this formulas as having “the full color coverage of a lipstick” but with “The shine of a gloss.” It’s also supposed to “moisturize, condition, and last throughout the day without feathering.” The coverage is semi-opaque, mostly due to the high shimmer content rather than a lot of color in the gloss base itself, but it’s definitely not full coverage. It has a thin-like consistency that spreads evenly and easily, so it’s not too thin, but it’s not thick at all. The texture is non-sticky and only somewhat balm-like–it has more slip than your average balm. I was able to wear Rose Gold for three hours before it needed a touch-up, and afterward, my lips still felt hydrated. Like the brand’s other glosses, it is mint-scented.
