Bobbi Brown Black Pearl Shimmer Lip Gloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “dusty mauve.” It’s a gray-tinged mauve with a hint of plumminess and pale mauve shimmer. What it does on my lips is darken the natural lip color, give it a cool-toned cast, and add a healthy dosage of pale mauve shimmer. Chanel Pleasing is warmer, less plum. Urban Decay Perversion is a bit darker.

This shade yielded semi-sheer color coverage, but it distinctly added/altered my natural lip color, and there was a lot of visible shimmer. The shimmer spread evenly across the lips, and it didn’t settle into lip lines. It has a very thin texture with a lightly tacky feel. The formula is vanilla-scented and comes with a doe-foot applicator. Black Pearl wore for three and a half hours on me, and it was neither drying nor hydrating.

NOT LIMITED EDITION, HOORAY. I love this. I can’t wait to try some bobbi brown lip products, but I have to get through a few of my other glosses first. This is on my list to buy for sure.

I call my piece of crap car the black pearl. It’s ugly but trusty. I love pirates har har har.

It looks amazing on you.

This is so wearable, what an excellent stocking stuffer to buy myself! Also, I love the two different eye-makeup look, you’re too cute! Thanks for working so hard for us, we all appreciate it.

Oh wow, that’s the first gloss I’ve seen from her that made me get up and go, “WANT.” I’ve been pushing myself to use my gloss more often so it doesn’t all go bad, so maybe I can convince myself one more won’t hurt… 😛

I wonder if this shade is close to Loreal’s Color Riche lipstick in Mica. That is an old, classic color of theirs… I wore it to my Junior Prom over 20 years ago & they still make it.

This shade looks great with your skin tone. I love BB Rich Color Glosses & Rich Lip Colors, big time (they have such great coverage, staying power & moisturizing properties) !! but have pretty much ignored their shimmery lip products. Ill have to check them out the next time I’m at Bobbi Brown.

I’m really into purples and mauve’s recently, this looks SO cool. Every time I walk past Bobbi Brown now I spy the High Shimmer Lipglosses… going to buy one, just not sure when! So many things I want to try!
