Bobbi Brown recently released their Crushed Liquid Lip – a hybrid lip formula that has the nourishing feel of a balm, the colour payoff of a liquid lipstick and the creamy sheen of a gloss. Since purchasing these a few months ago, I’ve worn them pretty much every single day. They very quickly became my favourite go-to lip product and nothing has knocked them off the top spot yet!
The formula feels lightweight and hydrating, it’s definitely the most comfortable pigmented lip formula I’ve tried. They’re also not sticky at all, which I really appreciate! These lipsticks are opaque and full coverage in one swipe, and very quick and easy to apply. The doe foot applicator has a nice beveled edge that makes tracing and perfecting your lip line super easy. The applicator picks up the perfect amount of product, so they glide over the lips so smoothly with no dragging or skipping. These also don’t settle into the fine lines in my lips or bleed outside my lip line – I never feel the need to wear a lip liner with these.
The two shades I currently have are ‘Hippy Shake’ (a muted pale blue pink) and ‘Give a Fig’ (a dusty red rose), but I’m eyeing up quite a few more shades! The two shades I do have work perfectly for my every day makeup looks, so I’d love to add a bright, bold shade to my collection. There are 14 shades in the permanent collection ranging from nudes, pinks, reds, mauves and a deep berry.
As these are a balmy texture, they do wear off gradually after a few hours. When they do wear off, they do so evenly and leave behind a slight stain. I tend to reapply these after about 3-4 hours, which I don’t mind at all. They layer over previous applications really nicely and never go patchy, cakey or crumbly.
Another bonus is the packaging – it is beautiful! It feels really well made and luxe, which makes applying them feel even more special. I love that the tube is clear so you can see the exact shade, perfect if you have a large lipstick collection! The Crushed Liquid Lips also have a faint fruity scent which I really love – it’s just a hint of fragrance when applying and quickly dissipates, not overwhelming at all.
I also really love to use these as a cream blush, as they look so healthy and plump on the cheeks! I just apply a dot on my cheek and tap to blend with my fingers. It’s easy to top up throughout the day too, which you can do by kissing your fingers and tapping the product on to the cheeks.
