Over the past several weeks, Bobbi Brown introduced a new line of High Shimmer Lip Gloss ($23/each). I was so delighted over the shift to a doe foot applicator that I nearly forgot to check out the line. Here, I’m looking at Pink Tulle.
Like several in the High Shimmer Lip Gloss line, Pink Tulle is formulated with a high-shine microglitters that catch the light but do not feel gritty. The gloss is a high-gloss, and (consistent with Bobbi Brown’s other glosses) is on the higher end of the sticky scale. As you know, sticky glosses tend to last longer. Although I did not try all of the glosses in this line, please note that Pink Tulle has a very strong, pleasant mint scent.
Pink Tulle is somewhat sheer. Here, I swatched it next to the comparatively opaque Nars Angelika, the very sheer Chanel Glossimer in Blossom (reviewed here), Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss in Imaginaire (reviewed here), and Chanel Glossimer in Pink Pulsion (reviewed here).
Pink Tulle is quite sheer on the lips as well. Here, you can see most of the color in this picture is Liz’s natural lip color. The microshimmer effect is noticeable but subtle:
Overall, I applaud Bobbi Brown for moving to the doe foot applicator. Pink Tulle is an easy, highly wearable gloss that adds just a touch of sparkle, shine and glam. It’s a perfect “purse color,” meaning you can keep it in your bag for touchups because it’s going with virtually anything you are going to wear.
