Bobbi Brown Tube Tint Trio for Holiday 2012

Bobbi Brown's limited-edition Tube Tint Trio ($38) is the best ever. Introduced for holiday gift giving, it will be hard to give away.

Everything's better in threes. Destined to make the lip gloss lovers on your list swoon, this trio of easy-to-use tubes features a shade from each formula: Glitter Lip Gloss in Grape, Pink Violet Lip Gloss, and Shimmer Lip Gloss in Pink Mist (for just a hint of pretty color).

There isn't a chance mine is leaving home. These shades are gorgeous. I love the tubes; they make application of hydrating color a breeze, even in the car or without a mirror.

Grape Glitter Lip Gloss is my favorite of three loves. It's plum with gold shimmer shown on the left above. Pink Mist Shimmer Lip Gloss is a pale peach-pink-tinted beige with golden shimmer. On the right directly above, the showy Pink Violet Lip Gloss is a bright violet pink - surprisingly wearable and pretty on the lips, no doubt because of its sheerness.

While these glosses are lip smackingly even when applied on the lips,they look a bit uneven on my arm - especially my favorite Grape Glitter Lip Gloss shown at the top of my arm. Trust me; they look fabulous when applied.

The shine you see on my arm is real. You will see it on your lips too. Pink Mist Shimmer Lip Gloss, shown in the middle of my arm, may be the perfect nude. Pink Violet Lip Gloss, shown at the bottom, is a blue-pink, but not too blue. It's lovely for my complexion.

You can find the Tube Tint Trio at Bobbi Brown's Web site, Bobbi Brown counters, and online wherever Bobbi Brown is listed. I didn't see it at Sephora. Had it been available there at a 20% discount, I would have purchased a second set for a gift.

This looks lovely as a gift for one of my coworkers. I'm always on the hunt for cute gifts for Christmas...although with all that sparkle I may want a set!

Thanks for the swatches! I wouldn't have purchased without seeing the darker shade first. Now I can purchase online without having to go to the store. Thanks! Stacie xo

I Don't Need another Lip Product but I really want this one. I saw it at the Bobbi Brown counter and I LOVE it! I was also hoping I could find it online for the VIB sale at Sephora. I know I will break down and get it. :)

Hi Evelyn,

It would be a great coworker gift! I don't know anyone who wouldn't be delighted with it.

Hi Stacie, the best shade of the three. Enjoy!

Hi Nancy, I'll bet it and the other missing things show up at Sephora today. In fact, I'm going to look now.

These are simply gorgeous, and the shades are perfect for me! Thank you so much for sharing- otherwise I wouldn't have taken note of these beauties!!!
