Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Naked Plum – Swatches, Pics, Review

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. ;-)

    This looks so gorgeous on you! I saw the review on Temptalia as well and thought it was lovely, but I decided to pass– now that I see your review and swatches I think that I might have to get it! Oh how you enable me!! :-)

    So pretty on you! I don’t own a lot of Bobbi Brown either, but now the Sephora that’s 10 minutes away is carrying it! So things might change now! I’m so into gloss right now and this one looks perfect.

    Not sure if it helps, but Murale stores carry BB as well. Although there are certain products (like her Extra Rich formula lipsticks) that don’t ever seem to have made it here.

    I’m really fond of these glosses as well- I have “Metallic Red”, which lives up to its name- this one looks like a must-have as well!

    Peeps, that’s an excellent color on you. I also would prefer that lip gloss be able to stand on its own. I haven’t tried BB Shimmer Gloss (partly because shimmer on my lips isn’t my favorite formula), but her Rich Lip Gloss is excellent.
