Review & Swatches: Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Colour – Raspberry, Pink Gold & Plum
Okay so I don’t usually go shimmer lip colour because I usually find the colour to be very muted. Which basically means I end up with sparkly lips which I don’t really fancy. Hence the inclination towards something sheer or creamy.
The New Bobbi Brown Lip Colour in High Shimmer gives a different meaning to shimmer. It combines high-shine emoillients and light-reflective pearls which gives a sheer and multi-dimensional effect. It contains Shea Butter and Muru Muru Butter to help seal in moisture and keep lips feeling supple and conditioned.
I love the lightweight formula. It glides on really smooth and evenly. Despite being described as sheer, I find some of the colours to be a bit more buildable, more of a semi-opaque. The colours show well on the lips despite being shimmer packed. The fine shimmer reflects light beautifully, giving that “dab of gloss in the centre” effect. The formula gives light hydration without any feeling of grittiness. It lasted about 3 ½ hours on me.
Pink Gold Shimmer – Pale peach pink. This muted my natural lip colour making it appear slightly nude but my natural lip colour still came through. I figured this would be perfect for heavier eye makeups.
Raspberry Shimmer - Bright pink berry. This one is definitely semi-opaque. This shade just instantly brightens up any look.
Plum Shimmer - Plum raspberry shade. Semi-opaque on me. This has to be my favourite out of the three. The warm plum reminds me of a glam rock chick kinda look.
