Bobbi Brown Black Ruby is a moderately warm-toned, very dark red with a frost finish. It is a permanent lipgloss that retails for $24.00 and contains 0.23 oz.
Bobbi Brown Black Ruby High Shimmer Lipgloss ($23.00 for 0.24 fl. oz.) is described as a "crimson with gold pearl." It's a semi-opaque, vibrant ruby red base with gold shimmer. Chanel Triomphal is more opaque and has pink shimmer. MAC Sonoran Rain is warmer. MAC Driven by Love is rdder, less sparkly. YSL Golden Red is warmer. I can't wait to wear this during the holidays--I can be very traditional sometimes, and in the case of the holidays, I love a red lip with gold shimmer). I love how the red is a deeper kind of red--it's not a bright, cherry red, and it's not strongly blue-based, yet it isn't orange-based, either. It's just barely cool-toned, with a berry/wine kind of pull, and it can be harder to find gold-shimmered reds that aren't orange-based.
Bobbi's new lip gloss combines gorgeous, light-catching shimmer with lasting, non-sticky shine. Made with fine pearls and clear pigments, High Shimmer Lip Gloss stays color-true and gives lips beautiful, brilliant dimension. Plus it's enriched with emollients and Vitamins C and E to moisturize, condition and protect lips, so they feel as good as they look. Whether you wear it on its own or on top of your favorite Lip Color, the new tapered applicator lets you apply it like a pro.
