Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lipgloss Review, Swatches, Photos

I’ve tried four different shades of the new Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lipgloss but I admit I was an ickle disappointed that they all looked the same on my lips.

Le Sigh!

Yesterday, I tried a few of the darker shades and whoa…

Opinion revised, ME LIKEY!


Originally released with the Almost Bare Collection, Bobbi has now made her High Shimmer Lipgloss part of her permanent collection.

I was little ickle disappointed with the shades I tried from Almost Bare as they were a little too sheer for me and all three looked the same on my lips however loving all that sparkle and shimmer.

Recently, I tried four more shades and I gotta revise my opinion! Loves these. If you’re heading into a purchase I highly recommend going for the deeper, richer shades versus the lighter ones which apply sheer. The darker colors have considerably more pigment and work beautifully alone or on top of gloss.

  • Plum Gold: A sparkling shade of plummy brown with golden shimmer.
  • Pink Sequin: A deep shade of pink with iridescent sparkle.
  • Electric Violet: A sparkling fuchsia violet.
  • Naked Plum: A nude, sparkling shade of plummy rose.

All four of these shades have beautiful jewel colors with gorgeous pigment. They work fabulous alone but they really work amazing when joined up with your favorite lipstick as they give off a sparkling, metallic look to lips!

If you’re shopping the range, I highly suggest the darker colors.

Tried ’em?
