Bobbi Brown Pastel High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a “soft pink with pink pearl.” It’s exactly as described: it’s a light, sheer pink with neutral undertones with lots of pink shimmer. There are a few silver and gold sparkles there as well, but it seems to reflect mostly the cool pink sparkles. MAC Superflash! is a bit similar though more opaque and has chunky flakes of glitter. YSL Golden Peony has more gold shimmer.

It’s one of the sheerer shades within the range, so it amplifies any natural pink hues in your lip color, but it’s not opaque nor will it add a lot of noticeable color. It has pink gold, and silver sparkle in it, though pink dominates. It can be worn alone without settling into lip lines, and it does make my lips look pinker overall. It can also be used to layer over your favorite lipstick to add glossiness and sparkle without altering the color much. Fans of sheer shades will like this, and those who prefer more opaque shades will be less enamored–I’m in the latter group, so I only need a few sheer glosses.

The High Shimmer Lipgloss formula is a favorite for me. I think at this very moment I have two or three shades in my purse (though I was testing them), but I haven’t bothered to take them out because I’ve been reaching for them even if it’s just to wear after lunch and through coffee (it’s about an hour and a half period where I don’t bother testing lip color, since most products will just transfer onto food/cups). It’s moisturizing, glossy, sparkly, longer-wearing (Pastel wore three and a half hours), and the sparkle doesn’t travel. This formula is non-sticky, not too thick or too thin in texture, and mint-scented.
