staying power


her line of lipglosses are great because they are long lasting and the colors are wonderful

- Macy's User

stays on good, not drying or greasy

- Macy's User


not sticky

it's not sticky or gunky like many glosses and leaves a nice subtle sparkle on your lips once the gloss wears off

- Nordstrom User

love this lip gloss natural color and good quality

- Nordstrom User

chapped lips

hydrates lips

the colors are of good quality and the shimmer creates a lovely plumping and youthful look

- Nordstrom User

very moisturizing, stays put, and color and shine adds youth to your face

- Bobbibrowncosmetics User



this lipgloss has a super natural tint, the shimmers in aren't chunky but their not fine it's hard to explain but it's like "the nautral look" but it also like bam

- Bloomingdale's User

it feels nice on lips, not heavy

- Bobbibrowncosmetics User



pros great color that looks great on a lot of skin tones looks great on bare lips or over different shades of lipstick or lipliner can wear it super sheer or build the color a bit more moisturizing for a lip gloss the color brightens my entire face without feeling like the color is so bright that people just see lips does not have a strong scent cons like most lip gloss containers, its very hard to get all of the lip gloss out of the container, and it's not cheap, so i try to get every drop from each tube

- Sephora User

love that it is semi-sheer so you can actually tell what color it is (some lines of lip gloss are so sheer every color in the line looks the same on your lips)

Weakest link in a fabulous product line

I have the utmost respect for Bobbi Brown's line and I think she does an amazing job of creating universally flattering color ranges and great, high quality formulas. But the lip gloss is just horrible. First, if you don't like stickiness, this isn't the gloss for you. It's gloopy and thick (in all the formulas, sheer, glittery, etc) and the packaging is really some of the worst in the industry. Frankly, the brush is only good for ONE use. Unless you work very hard to put the brush back in a sort of awkward sideways motion, it WILL end up getting bent out of shape and have bristles going everywhere. It's not just my observation, even counter employees will warn you when you purchase this gloss and give you the "technique" to avoid this from happening. Unfortunately, it's unavoidable and the brush will fan out making for a very sloppy and eventually impossible application. The formulas are very sticky, too and they just fall so short of the rest of the line in my opinion and I can't recommend them for any reason when there are so many better glosses out there. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-1204622385688039772-full" data-show="-1204622385688039772-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

New applicator & twice the gloss

I bought Pink Tulle 2. The color is cotton-candy bright in the tube at first glance and the tube itself is almost twice as long as it used to be. AND the doe foot/slant tip applicator is a great improvement over the brushes in the other gloss formulas. It sort of resembles BB's glitter gloss at first also but like that gloss there's no visible "glitter" at all once it's on the lips... just a golden glowing shine. It is extremely pretty. The color/pigmentation is sheer and the consistency is smooth; there's a light scent of mint. No discernible flavor (yay). And no stringy product follows the wand out when you open the tube. The texture of this gloss actually reminds me of the pan glosses in BB's Modern Classic palette (& I love those too). The biggest and best gloss yet from BB. Not a whole lot of staying power; wouldn't last through my coffee for example but it looks so nice on... my lips just gleam. I hope this becomes a permanent item with more colors! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Rose Sugar is Perfection

I have been buying this lip gloss in Rose Sugar since it debuted over a decade ago and probably have purchased 50 tubes. The color is just slightly darker and rosier than my natural lip color, so it is something I can apply on the fly. I always keep one at home, at work, in my car, purse ... you get the idea. It's what I use when I don't want to think about it. The shimmer, which I prefer over Bobbi's non-shimmer and high-shimmer glosses, is gorgeous and subtle. It does not look glittery or feel gritty. While it IS somewhat sticky, I like the thicker consistency because it actually stays put for a relatively long period of time. If you're going to be outside when it's windy, your hair WILL stick to you lips, but for me it's a small price to pay for a gloss that moisturizes, soothes, lasts, and smells like vanilla. I also like to layer it over pigmented lip colors that can be drying. The only issue I have is the packaging does not allow you to reach all of the product, which is a waste. I literally cut my tubes in half once I can't reach the gloss with the wand and scoop what remains at the bottom into empty pots. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-7672295645994779361-full" data-show="-7672295645994779361-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

Best Lip Gloss Ever!

In reading through the reviews, I see that this lip gloss gets criticized for being sticky. I wouldn't exactly call it sticky. It has a heavier texture, and for this reason it stays on for a very long time—a quality that one doesn't often find in a lip gloss. It also doesn't taste terrible. I recently had to return a Clinique lip gloss that I purchase because it tasted like chemicals. Bobbie Brown's lip glosses have been my favorites for years now, although I am very disappointed the the "Confetti" gloss seems to have been discontinued. This was my favorite. Here is my trick to add color to the lighter glosses. I used the Sephora Collection Lip Cream Stain in Shimmering Hot Pink or the Infinite Rose (which is a light peach color). I love the Lip Cream Stains! They go on thin and dry quickly. When dry, I top with Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss. This combo stays on for hours and does not ever get dry. If you desire a thinner less "sticky" gloss try the Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-6906601275957618554-full" data-show="-6906601275957618554-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

a winner

Got the 100 point perk (as many of you did cause it went really fast)and was blown away! I am very picky with lip glosses and being a Nars gal and was more than impressed. Ordered the nude online but the color didn't suit me so I got my butt to the store and ended up rosy and kir sugar after trying on a few of the colors. I wanted naked plum but was way too frosty. Rosy is a beautiful rosy pink color that just lights up my face and makes my teeth whiter and kir sugar is a georgeous plummy brown nude color that is perfect. These glosses are super moisturizing,don't chap or make my lips peel and that really says something! Yeah they are kind of skicky but that is what makes them have so much staying power, but they are not thick, slimy, slippery or goopy, just very shiny and beautiful. The scent is like a slight hint of vanilla which is nice. Most lipglosses are a deal breaker for me because scent is huge for me...gives me headaches. Yes, I will repurchase these for sure, even the 100 piont perk, that one is beautiful too! Kudos to Bobbi and to Town Square Sephora in Las Vegas!! You guys rock!! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="2678333333925059828-full" data-show="2678333333925059828-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>
