Bobbi Brown Bellini High Shimmer Lipgloss

Bobbi Brown Bellini High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “nude pink with pearl.” It’s a light-medium yellow-toned pink with pink and silver sparkle. MAC On a Holiday is similar with less sparkle. YSL Golden Peony is similar but has gold shimmer. There are a lot of sheer glosses to choose from–they just have varying degrees of shimmer!

It intensifies the natural pink tones in lips but doesn’t add a ton of color; it does add a lot of sparkle. This shade is semi-sheer, but if you have more pigmented lips, it’s going to seem rather sheer on you and just deposit some sparkle. Bellini definitely does not have nearly as much shimmer as some of the other shades in the range, so that may be good or bad depending on your needs. I’m always reaching for one of these glosses when I’m not testing something else, because they add a lot of dazzle and glimmer. The sparkle doesn’t feel gritty, and it doesn’t travel. When I tested Bellini, it wore for three hours, and my lips felt hydrated both during and after I wore it. This formula is non-sticky, not too thick or too thin in texture, and mint-scented.

This was one of the first High Shimmers that I bought. It’s my go-to shade for when I don’t want a lot of color on my lips but need some extra oomph.

Hi Christine, I absolutely love this color gloss. I was pleased to see you posted information about the affiliate link and commissions you obtain. It pleases me to know that I am able to support your beauty blog in a small way. It is by far one of the best for beauty info- great swatches, original ideas, cool looks, and reliable opinions that I trust.
I was just wondering if the ads around the perimeter can also give you a commission. My web browser has me pretty dialed in, and I always see ads for Lucy and WHBM- both are places I love to shop, and would love to know that you might be getting a small little piece of the action when I make purchases…
Again, thanks for the great blog, and pictures…

 @Angielove Hi!  The advertisements along the sides and top/bottom don’t give me commission. They work on a CPM basis, which means that I get a certain rate (which varies depending on the advertiser) for every 1,000 times an ad is viewed.
 
Thank you so much for your support! 🙂

All these Bobbi Brown High Shimmer glosses you’ve reviewed so far are gorgeous!  It’s always nice to see a shimmer gloss that actually delivers on the “shimmer” part when there are a lot of others on the market that kind of fall short.
 
On an somewhat unrelated note, have you ever considered focusing a little more on low end products?  I’m probably in the minority here as someone who is brand new to makeup (I’ve worn makeup out maybe twce in my life, haha) and I understand that you make purchases/post reviews based on what the majority of your readers want, but a lot of the things you review are a little expensive to just mess around with while practicing technique and such (I wouldn’t wanna use a $20 eyeshadow just to play around with somethig I’m going to take off in an hour).  Would you consider doing a short “under $10” series or something similar for people like me?
 
Also, if anyone else out there has any suggestions, I’ll gladly take any extra help I can get.  🙂

I really like this color! It looks like just enough :)Just wondering, are you not doing full face shots anymore? I always liked those! I feel that they give you a complete vision of what the colors look like – they’re also something I felt made your swatches/reviews even more helpful.
