After an exhausting first half of the day, my elder one had to be taken to the doctor, younger one to be dropped to playschool and then back again! Exhausted! Sometimes, I feel drained out mentally than physically. My advice to anyone who is thinking of a second child – think, think again, and then do it 😛 Yes, you do become more of a referee than a mother, but its so worth it! In continuation with the “Back with Bobbi” series, I review for you another gloss from the Bobbi Brown collection – #22 Rosy.
A lip gloss with a sheer, non-sticky shine with a hint of color. 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).
As I mentioned in my previous review, the lip gloss has a square transparent plastic bottle and comes with a brush like applicator. It’s extremely easy to apply and to use around the lip curves. The packaging being small, its extremely easy to carry it in a clutch for re-application.
My Experience with Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss – Rosy:
Color: The colour “Rosy” is described on the website as “sheer bright rose.” I find the colour to be a soft creamy pink. It can be sheered or layered as per your preference. This one can be used on its own as a rosy wash of colour on lips hiding pigmentation or it can be used to tone down a bright neon pink lipstick. There is no sparkle/sheen/shimmer at all, its pure gloss finish. I find it flattering and appealing.
Texture: The texture is 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. It covers lip pigmentation.
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 – Rosy:
- A beautiful rosy creamy pink colour, can be used alone or on top of a lipstick to tone it down a bit and obviously to add luscious glossiness.
- 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 – Rosy:
- As mentioned in my previous review, I feel there is too little product for that pricing.
Yes, a 4.5/5 product.
I am so waiting for Bobbi Brown makeup to come to Mumbai, so I stop buying these internationally at exorbitant prices. Not that its cheaper in India, but still, at least you pay in rupees instead of dollars!Hmpf!
Gloss colours do not show adequately in FOTDs, so I will not be putting FOTD in gloss reviews.
