We bling everything else, why not our lips? And, if you're GOING to be blinging out your lips, you'll want to keep it classy. Just sayin'. The best way to do this is to find a gloss that looks good, feels good, and is low maintenance.
For Fall 2012, Bobbi Brown brings us two High Shimmer Lip Glosses as part of the Desert Twilight Collection. You saw high shimmer and got scared, didn't you? It's okayyyyy! Check it, these ones are awesome. I said check it, cause I meant it. TGIF.
What the Nordstrom website has to say about Bobbi Brown High Shimmer Lip Gloss:
Bobbi's new lip gloss combines gorgeous, light-catching shimmer with lasting, non-sticky shine. Made with fine pearls and clear pigments, High Shimmer Lip Gloss stays color-true and gives lips beautiful, brilliant dimension. Plus it's enriched with emollients and vitamins C and E to moisturize, condition and protect lips, so they feel as good as they look. Whether you wear it on its own or on top of your favorite lip color, the new tapered applicator lets you apply it like a pro.
- 0.23 oz.

Firefly is described as champagne. It's more of a sheer white iridescent. Like they had a sheer white gloss and smashed some dragonfly wings in there. That's morbid. This gloss, however, is not.
Bronzed Heather is described as dirty pink. It's more like a dusky rose with shimmer. Exactly what I want my day lip to be this Fall.
I'm happy to report these glosses have very little stick. I think I tried Bobbi Brown glosses many moons ago and didn't like the feel. The High Shimmer Lip Gloss glides on nicely and with good color. With all of the glitter involved here you'd think there would be a gritty feeling, but there is none.
It has a minty smell to it and gives a fabulous plumping appearance to the lips. Well done =)
