Bobbi Brown Dessert Twilight Lip Gloss in Pink Sunset #51 Review and Swatches

I am going to do a quick review on one of Bobbi Brown’s lipgloss from Dessert Twilight Collection. Bobbi Brown’s fall collection is looking good. The palette and the bronzer looks gorgeous but I didn’t get it. I am also curious about the nail polish but I have not got them yet. I picked Pink Sunset because of the micro shimmers inside this nude gloss, it looks so pretty at the first sight.

This is my first Bobbi Brown lipgloss. I heard their shimmers are awesome and since I am a big fan of shimmering lipgloss I need to try this 🙂

Honestly one of the reasons why Bobbi Brown lipglosses has never caught my attention before is the packaging. The tube is made of plastic which I don’t like. It’s very lightweight and too simple. Although the shimmer looks pretty good, the packaging has always been the major reason why I had never bought any Bobbi Brown’s lipgloss in the past. The texture of this lipgloss is sheer and quite light. It’s not too sticky on my lips. This lipgloss lasts about 2 hours with me.

Honestly I am a bit disappointed with the shimmer. When I swatched this on Changi Airport T1 counter, I can see beautiful shimmers in this lipgloss. But after I reached home and tried it on my lips, I can barely any shimmer. The color did not show up too, it looks very sheer on my lips. The only thing I love about this lipgloss is the smell. I smell a mocha scent inside this tube and I like it. I feel like sipping a mocha latter whenever I am applying this lipgloss.

I did a comparison swatch with Chanel Levres Scintillantes 297 in Sweet Beige and Burberry Lipgloss Nude Beige. In terms of pigmentation, Bobbi brown’s is the lightest and Burberry’s the heaviest. In terms of shimmer, Chanel is the winner.

As you can see, this looks very sheer on my lips. I can barely see any color and shimmer. Some shimmers are captured in this picture but it’s really hard to see them in real life.

Final Thought:

As much as I would love to like this product, I can’t. I hope this is more pigmented and contains more shimmer. This is my fault too that i did not try this on my lips first before buying. I was catching a flight and bought this on impulse. Although this is certainly not one of my favorite lipgloss, I would still wear it. I’d still bring this on my bag and use it as a sheer lipgloss.

What’s your experience with Bobbi Brown’s lipgloss?

Thank you for reading 🙂

    Aww I’m sorry this doesn’t work for you! Do try their High Shimmer Lip Gloss when you get a chance, because that’s really very sparkly!

  2. Even though you didn’t like it, I must say it looks gorgeous on you–and I can definitely see the shimmers on your lips! 🙂 But maybe you wanted something even more shimmery? I also LOVE the Burberry and Chanel glosses that you swatched too–I have to check those out

    I love lighter colors, so I think this is actually quite pretty! I used to have a few Bobbi lip glosses too; I think some of the medium/dark shades are more opaque.

    I used to own a few Bobbi Brown lipglosses but they were too sheer for my liking. I do like Chanel glosses more.
