The Curse of the Black Pearl
I am test driving the new Bobbi Brown Mauve Collection. I am loving everything but one product has managed to capture my heart.
Black Pearl Shimmer Gloss is a silverish heather shade.
It retails for $19 and will be at your local Bobbi Brown counter in July.
While I was in Paris, I became entranced with this mysterious lippie that every female television personality wore. It was this twisted gossamer grayish shade. It was like nothing I had ever seen before. I instantly started the coveting process and went on a fruitless search to find it.
I had no luck until Black Pearl.
It is a cool almost dirty heather gray. The pigment is light and there is only a slight shimmer.
It is both subtle and startling at the same time.
I paired it with a smoky eye and was promptly hooked.
I think this lippie is unique but it might be labeled unwearable by the MUA masses.
This is a lippie that might be an acquired taste.
It is far from bubblegum or coral.
This is a gloomy yet sophisticated lippie.
