      Apparently this is a popular Bobbi Brown lip color, or it is one of Bobbi’s personal favorites, because I have seen it appear in a couple of her limited-edition sets (just like the shade Italian Rose). I always wondered about that word kir, and I didn’t know what it meant or what it had to do with lipstick colors. So I have now looked up the meaning, and it is a drink that mixes dry white wine or champagne with cassis. Then I didn’t know what cassis was. So I looked that up, and it is a liquor that is made

      from black currants (which bear black berries).

      And after trying on Kir, I realize that that’s what Bobbi should have named this lip color: black berry. But maybe she already gave one of her other lip colors that name. Anyway, I would say that Kir is a deep plum rose color. I think this color may be a little too subdued for me. At the same time, though, the fact that it is deep and dramatic looking makes it sexy, in a way. I guess it all depends on your own personal taste, what you find sexy, and whether you like uplifting

      lip colors or somber lip colors. I think Kir looks better on me when I smile, because that’s when I can really appreciate the beauty of the metallic sheen. The light hits it, and it looks pretty and helps to light up my face a little more than when I am not smiling.

      I think Kir is the kind of shade that I would like to play around with and mix with other colors — perhaps even more upbeat colors that will take away some of that deep sexiness. I am glad that Kir came as part of Bobbi’s holiday lip palette,

      which includes six lip colors for $45, because it’s not the kind of color that really stands out from the other lip colors I own. So I am glad that I didn’t spend $22 for a tube of it, which is what Bobbi’s lipsticks cost. It is a nice color, and it’s really not THAT dark (not in a vampy Elvira way). But I have seen other metallic, subdued plum rose colors that are a little similar to Kir. Clinique makes a lot of them, but I have to say that Kir is nicer than most of them, maybe because it
      has more plum in it.

      So if you like somewhat deep, sophisticated plum lipsticks with an icy glow, then you may like Bobbi Brown’s metallic lip color in Kir. It definitely looks like a mature, womanly lip color. It is not for women who like “girly” pink lip colors, like traditional true pinks or baby pinks. I think you will like the creaminess of Bobbi’s metallic lipsticks. They feel good on my lips. But I would like to see if Bobbi has made any brighter metallic lip colors, in the hope that I might find a more cheerful shade to light up my face more.
