Bobbi Brown Plum Gold High Shimmer Lipgloss
Bobbi Brown Plum Gold High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “plum with bronze pearl.” It’s like a deep, berry red with gold shimmer. The color coverage is semi-opaque, and this particular shade does settle into lip lines a bit and doesn’t apply perfectly even, unfortunately, though I think both things are less noticeable at a normal viewing distance. For someone who loves the color, you could also consider layering it over a lipstick, which will minimize both issues. Chantecaille Patina is not as berry, more of a red. MAC Lasting Achievement is more opaque and berry hued. It’s very similar to Dolce & Gabbana Amethyst but Plum Gold has the gold shimmer.
I am kind of IN LOVE with Bobbi Brown’s High Shimmer Lipglosses, actually. They have such an amazing sparkle-factor–all dazzle without any tackiness and shine from miles away. Really glossy, shimmery, and comfortable to wear as they’re fairly moisturizing and wear around four hours–even the lighter shades. You may have felt I was more lukewarm than ecstatic in my initial review, and I was, but as I’ve been wearing several of the shades throughout the past couple of months, I’m now ready to tell you that I’m loving them.
