BB High Shimmer glosses are gorgeous and underrated on MUA--they're a much nicer formula than MAC Dazzleglasses and have more wearable colors for those of us who learned to drive before the George W. Bush administration. :)
Electric Violet looks crazy bright in the tube and very shimmery, with blue and pink shimmer. Once applied it's a gorgeous decently pigmented violet with a good amount of shimmer, but not at all OTT. It's not quite sheer, but gives a lovely glossy violet stained look. I'd wear this to my conservative office with an understated eye without any hesitation, but I'd also wear it on a Friday night.
The formula itself is nice and not sticky like many other glosses. The mint smell is subtle and it doesn't have any noticeable taste. Its staying power is about 1-2 hours, which is average on me for a lip gloss, which is the only reason I gave this a 4/5 instead of 5/5.
BB usually has a reputation for being "boring" and "safe," but these glosses (including Electric Violet) are anything but!
