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.
The formula is mostly non-sticky, but I did detect a slight tackiness that developed over the time that I wore this shade (which lasted for just under three hours). Like the brand’s other glosses, it is mint-scented. The gloss adds a lot of shine without a lot of product; it has a lightweight look and feel–doesn’t look like you’re wearing a layer of gloss. It’s so-so as far as hydration goes; no chapped or dried out lips post-use, but it doesn’t seem to have any moisture once it disappears.
Having a ton of sheer glosses like this is probably unnecessary for most, but having a few in your arsenal is always a good idea. They’re great to keep in your bag for a little color and shine that will go with anything, and they work well to add a glossy layer to any lipstick. Just remember: they’re supposed to be sheer, so if you only like opaque glosses, this isn’t designed with you in mind!
