Bobbi Brown's New Rich Color Gloss

Bobbi Brown's new Rich Color Gloss ($20) has hit the stores. I've seen it at Saks and Neiman Marcus, and it's on Bobbi Brown's Web site. The new gloss is three products in one, offering the full color coverage of a lipstick, the soft shine of a gloss, and the luxurious feel of a balm. As usual, Bobbi Brown has hit a home run.

Available in eight shades - light to dark and representing every color family - these glosses are long-lasting and feel good. There is a very slight taste.

I like the "doe-foot wand" because of the smooth, even, and fast application. I wasn't a big fan of Bobbi's brush applicators for gloss because they splayed out if you weren't really careful when placing them back in the tubes. Once splayed, they were harder to apply.

I bought two to start: Pink Raspberry, featured in the October W magazine, and Pink Buff. Both colors have enough pigment to wear alone - no lipstick underneath - for a nice sheer look.

Bobbi Brown fans should be on the lookout for these!
