Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss Trio for Holiday 2011 Review, Swatches, Photos

Bobbi has her lovely little trio of glosses round for the holidays. Wouldn’t be the Holiday without Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss Trio gracing my vanity, tis as traditional as eggnog and tinsel yo!


If you’re a Bobbi Brown fan you’ll probably want to check up on this cute trio as it offers the best of two finishing worlds here. You’ll get two of Bobbi’s new Shimmer Lip Gloss and one of her regular glosses.

The gloss formulas I’ve reviewed in the past however here’s a brief break down. Formula is sticky yet long wearing. I appreciate the tacky feel as it enables the gloss to wear quite strong for hours on its own or over your favorite lipstick or stain. The High Shimmer Gloss do indeed have a super shimmery finish with a more subtle color pay off where as the regular gloss included with this set has a bit more pigment and a shiny finish sans glitter or shimmer. You’ll have to enjoy shimmer if you’re plotting on purchasing this set since the finish does dominate here.

The colors you get are:

  • Aubergine: This is a subtle kiss of berry red on my lips. It’s a bit vampy if you layer enough however it remains do-able and never overly done. Pigmentation isn’t particularly incredible but it’s enough to give your lips a nice crushed berry finish.
  • Pastel: This is my favorite of the trio. This is a bright pink shimmer that does indeed add a nice flush of pink shimmer to lips.
  • Bare Sparkle: This is a nude, beige sparkle which doesn’t have a ton of pigmentation but acts as a nice shimmering overcoat to lipsticks or stains.

These little guys round at around $12 each (the set of three is $38) and are .14 oz in size. If you work it out you are getting a deal considering Bobbi’s glosses are normally $23 each.

It’s not the biggest best deal in regards to quantity as many other brands offering alot more for alot less on gloss sets however Bobbi Brown fans can appreciate the set as it does save them a bit of money and gets them a few shades of her gloss at a lower price tag all around. Needless to say, you do have to enjoy Bobbi Brown makeup to love on this deal.
