Rati’s posts on MAC lip glasses reminded me about these Bobbi Brown lip glosses I picked up (yes, more than one) some time back, only to realize that I am not really a lip gloss person anymore! See, we all go through phases when we get attracted to certain kind of products – I went through the pink phase, the gothic cocoa bean brown phase, just lip gloss phase, purple lipstick phase, coral lipstick phase, orange phase and currently, seems like I am in my neon shades phase! Anyway 🙂
So, I will adding to my Bobbi Brown series with a few more Bobbi Brown products, first of them being this lip gloss.
A lip gloss with a sheer, non-sticky shine with a hint of color. This lip gloss is formulated with soothing botanical extracts – including Avocado, Jojoba and Chamomile Oils, and Aloe Extract – to keep lips soft and supple; plus the new tapered applicator lets you apply it like a pro, scented with a hint of vanilla.
US $24 for 7 ml.
I have a mini version – cost me about INR 1200 for 4.2 ml (post conversions).
The lip gloss has a square transparent plastic bottle and comes with a brush like applicator. It’s extremely easy to apply and use around the lips curves. Packaging is extremely easy to carry in a clutch for re-application – since its small.
My Experience with Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss – Buff:
Color: The colour “Buff” is described on the website as “Beige Pink” which is absolutely apt. Its kind of perfect for someone trying to work out a glossy n*de lip colour or for someone trying to tone down a darker/brighter shade. Meaning, it will work well alone as well as on top of a lipstick. There is no sparkle/sheen/shimmer at all – its pure glossiness. Since the colour isn’t plain beige/brown, but has a peachy note, it looks natural and pretty rather than boring.
Texture: The texture is obviously glossy and a little sticky.
Pigmentation: It can be sheered out or built to colour in the tube by using a little more product when applying.
Lasting Power: On its own, it lasts about 3 hours. On top of a lipstick, it lasts a little longer.
To sum this up for you:
Pros of Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss – Buff:
- A beautiful peachy beige colour making it versatile for lone application or for toning down a bright lipstick.
- Easy to use applicator.
- Does not settle into the fine lines of the lips.
- Feels hydrating.
- Convenient small packaging.
- Light pleasant fragrance – easy on the nose.
Cons of Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss – Buff:
- I don’t put pricing as a con, but in this case, I feel there is too little product for that pricing – even though quality is exceptional.
Yes, a 4.5/5 product.
This is an absolutely fab colour with exceptional quality. I should know in terms of lip gloss quality because I went through “only lip gloss” phase not so long ago, though at that time I never used to buy high-end lip glosses, but with my current love for intensely pigmented lipsticks, I sometimes wonder why I get taken into buying products I won’t eventually use.
Does that happen to you? Do you get drawn to buying stuff, even though you know that you won’t really use it too often? Meaning, are you a hoarder like me?
