i have to disagree with the comment below. i found this lipgloss to be beautiful! i have brown skin and my lips have a natural pinkish tone to them without makeup. this silver gloss is a wonderful complement. i use it alone and sometimes use MAC 'polished up' lipstick on top (and also bobbi brown's 'black garnet' lipstick). i think it strikes a perfect balance between silver (a color that isn't easy to pull off) and sparkle. i'm about to repurchase for $18 during the friends and family promotion. love this gloss!!!

This was a waste of money. I swatched it in the store and it seemed to have lovely multicolored shimmer and sparkle with a silvery base. Either the lighting in Nordstrom is set perfectly to showcase cosmetics (which is quite possible) or my judgement was quite off (also quite possible).
Once I applied this to my lips, I felt like I'd been had. It does indeed have some sparkle and shimmer, but you really have to be under bright light and be looking for it to see it.The silvery sheen is just about invisible.
On the plus side, the dove's foot applicator and minty scent are nice and this lasts 2-3 hours easily.
This was still a disappointment. "High Sparkle" seems kind of ironic, given the almost-invisible shimmer. Somewhere out there Bobbi Brown is spending my $23 and laughing.
