They said nothing in this world is original. The world has been around for over a billion years, so it's possible that whatever concept or next big invention you can think of, it was thought by another person or has existed somewhere in time already. Now the challenge is to reinvent the original just like what Bobbi Brown did: She took plain ol' lip gloss and turned it into a highlighting product for the face. Interesting, eh?
BOBBI BROWN BRIGHTENING LIP GLOSS IN PINK LILAC IN DETAIL
The new Brightening Lip Gloss is a line of universal lip gloss shades in pearlized, shimmer, and frosted finishes-it simply aims to brighten the skin tone.
Pink Lilac is a new and limited edition shade from the Lilac Rose collection. The Brightening Lip Gloss has been expanded into a full- blown range already called Brightening Nudes. Unfortunately, the ingredients cannot be found on the box or tube-not even on the website.

Comes with a doe foot applicator with a precise tip: It perfectly fits the shape of my lips, and the rounded tip allows me to apply lip gloss neatly on the curves of my lips. However, it doesn't grab too much product so if you like layering gloss, you'd have to do a few swipes with this one.
BOBBI BROWN BRIGHTENING LIP GLOSS IN PINK LILAC IN ACTION
Pink Lilac layered twice
Pink Lilac is a light pink shade with a hint of lilac and white pearlescent micro shimmer, but the shimmer doesn't look horrible once it's on the lips. I've noticed as well that the pearlized finish helps even out the tone of the lips, conceal fine lines, and give puckers a fuller look. Pigmentation is sheer and coverage is light to medium. It's not really meant to impart full color coverage because it's formulated to look subtle on the lips.
Consistency is semi- sticky and thick, but its stickiness is the tolerable kind, thanks to its velvety smooth texture. I like its texture because it feels like a very emollient lip balm. It has a faint vanillic aroma.
To be honest, I was a little iffy about it due to its pearlized finish-for the nth time, I'll say that I'm not a fan of the said finish, and I don't really like the way pearlized/frosted finishes fare on my skin. :/ I thought that this lipgloss wouldn't look too good on me, but hey--I'm kinda' impressed!
Ways to Wear Bobbi Brown's Brightening Lip Gloss
You can wear this lipgloss alone or on top of lipstick. Do whatever that makes you happy! :D

On its own, it gives lips a dewy look, which I think is far better than super glossy: the latter look has a tendency to appear greasy on and slide around the lips.

If applied on top of lipstick, it enhances the color by giving it a 3D- like shine. What I like about this gloss is it doesn't alter the shade of whatever lipstick it's on that much!
For me, the best way to use this lip gloss is to apply it thinly and on its own to get that almost perfect- looking glossed lips of Hollywood celebrities. :)
Staying power is good, thanks to its semi- sticky consistency. It doesn't evaporate and fades gradually during wear, although it transfers easily onto cups and glasses. It didn't dry out my lips, and always leaves my smoochies soft and moisturized even if it has come off completely already.
Regarding the brightening effect, I like how it sorta' acts as a light bulb for the skin by giving it a tinge of warm glow, and the glow's never fake nor overbearing. I don't know what sorcery or science is in this lip gloss, but it just makes skin pop!
Highlighters are great because they give your skin that healthy- looking sheen, although it takes a bit of time and effort to apply. The fastest way to brighten up your complexion is this tube of liquid light-it's a nice and quick pick-me-upper when your skin's beginning to look tired and dull.
The Brightening Lip Gloss also comes in a shade called White, and I'm very interested in that because the color White is great for unifying the skin tone and softening the natural color of the lips for an ethereal effect. :D
