Bobbi Brown Desert Sun Glow Stick ($36.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark plum with neutral-to-warm undertones and a natural sheen. It did not seem truly shimmery but possibly had the very slightest bit to give it a stronger shine on the skin. It had sheer coverage and yielded subtle color on my skin tone along with a dewy finish. The stick had an incredibly emollient texture that felt heavy on the skin if built up, so a thin layer was most comfortable and easiest to deal with on the skin. I expected foolproof blending but found that the sheerness made any unevenness more noticeable and the slippery quality made it hard to get an even layer of coverage. The product started to move around and migrate on my face after four hours of wear.
