The plain case and writing suits well with Bobbi Browns theme but it’s way to plain for my tastes. The packaging doesn’t lend itself towards an expensive item in my opinion I want my packaging to scream beauty. However the sleek packaging is very similar to the rest of the brand and thus if you know of Bobbi Brown you will recognize the iconic label immediately.
The gloss itself however is quite lovely. It’s slides on easily with the brush applicator and smells of peppermint! Yum! The gloss is also moisturising and the colour is splendid.

Pro

  • Smells like peppermint
  • Great colour
  • Non sticky
  • Moisturising

Con

  • Expensive
  • Packaging is to plain for my taste

Would I repurchase?

No, the cost just puts me way off and its for something with such plain packaging.

That said it is a amazing lipgloss, you do get what you paid for in regards to the actual gloss, I just wish the packaging was a bit more fancy for $42.

If you love sleek packaging and have the money to spend then there is no doubt this lipgloss is worth the money.

  1. Hey Jen,

    This lipgloss swatches nicely but I’m disappointed that it didn’t look more bold on your lips. Then again, I’m not much a fan of sheer lipgloss!

    Great review, loved your pictures!

    • Hi Cally!

      Hope you feeling well. So glad your almost through the worst of it.

      sadly the swatch doesn’t do it justice. Its pink but fades very quickly.
      It looks so pink against pale skin but it kinda mixes in with your natural pink lips.

      Its the sparkles that stand out the most!

      Thanks for the comment lovely!
