Product Purchased by GlossyPolish.I am a matte lipstick lover but at the same time, I have got naturally dry lips. On days, when my lips are not properly exfoliated and moisturized, I reach for creamier lip products in place of matte lipsticks. Lip glosses are my best friends for the dry lip days. I generally opt for a shimmer-free pink lip gloss. I feel pink glosses give fresh and youthful lips. Recently I got my hands on Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss Kir Sugar. I used to use and love glitter glosses from Lakme’s Starshine range but unfortunately, this range got discontinued. On hand swatch, this gloss looked almost like starting glosses but its performance revealed many more important facts. Want to know more? Keep reading!

My Experience with Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss Kir Sugar
Packaging- This lip gloss comes in a transparent plastic tube with a shiny black screw lid. There is a doe-foot applicator wand attached to the lid for applying the gloss. The packaging is sleek, sturdy and small in size. It would fit even in the smallest purses. There is no leakage issue with this gloss tube and the applicator head assists to apply the gloss properly.
Shade & Texture- The shade Kir Sugar is a maroonish pink with tiny golden shimmers. The shade has comfortable warmth in it. Though this shade would look good on every undertone, it would complement yellow based Indian skin tones really well. This lip gloss has very thick texture; thicker than Lakme and Street Wear lip glosses. It spreads evenly though. Its texture is able to fill the fine lines of my lips and that is why this gloss gives a nice plump look.
Pigmentation and Staying Power- It is not a sheer shade. For a gloss, its pigmentation is remarkable. This Kir Sugar shade covers my medium pigmented lips in one swipe. It is highly likely that pigmented lips would also love this gloss. Since it is a gloss, its staying power is not comparable to matte lipsticks. It stays on for at least 5 hours without any meal or drink. It fades from the center of the lip. Generally, lip glosses transfer. This one transfers as well.
Fragrance- This lip gloss has a light mint fragrance. The fragrance is very similar to Maybelline’s Bright Out Loud Baby Lips lip balms. The fragrance gives a freshening effect to the senses. I love the smell!
Experience- This is a great lip gloss for warm skin tones like mine. I generally stay away from frosty lip products but this lip gloss has quickly become a favorite despite its shimmery finish. Its dense texture makes the lips look fuller and nourished. It shifts the attention from the fine lines of the lips with the help of its golden shimmers. It also gives a slight tingling sensation which feels cooling. The shade is also very pretty and goes well with light day makeup to shimmery evening looks. The shade is slightly darker and more brown than my perfect MLBB shade. Sometimes we need this kind of a shade to bring variety to our day to day looks. This lip gloss reminds me of Lakme’s old Starshine range shimmer glosses. Those glosses had slightly lighter formula than this one but they looked quite similar to my lips. I was disappointed when Starshine glosses were discontinued but now I have finally found a much better replacement.
