I can’t purchase Bobbi Brown cosmetic online in Canada and the nearest counter is two hours away so I don’t end up owning much of her cosmetics. It really is a shame. I don’t understand why Bobbi Brown is Canada restricted on Neiman Marcus, Sephora, and any other place I have attempted to purchase online. There are several brands that impose this restriction and it makes me crazy. Don’t they understand that some of us are hours from a counter? Sure I could call up Holt Renfrew and order from a counter but I HATE the phone. I will order something online but if it requires me phoning someone it isn’t apt to happen.
So anyways, I saw Naked Plum High Shimmer Lipgloss on Temptalia and for whatever reason I felt I must have it. I ended up having a friend who was sending me some perfume add this to my package. This is my first experience with a Bobbi Brown lipgloss and I’m pretty impressed.
The lip gloss has the standard doe foot applicator which tends to be my favourite.
Naked Plum is really nicely pigmented. I am very happy with that aspect of it. I love glosses that can stand on their own and not be used solely as lipstick toppers. It is a gorgeous plum shade with highly reflective pink shimmer and smaller, more subtle gold shimmer. It has a somewhat thick texture but it isn’t sticky and is very comfortable to wear. It has fairly good wear time for a gloss. If I were to pick one thing to complain about it would be that this gloss is a bit on the sparkly side for me but HEY I’m the one who ordered a lip gloss named HIGH SHIMMER lip gloss. I got what I ordered. 😉
