There really is something so pleasing about the sight of a unused, freshly-popped-up lipstick! So you can imagine the joy I felt playing about with not just one but twenty new lipsticks from Bobbi Brown Cosmetics – all 20 shades of their newest lip colour – Crushed Lip Color. Not only has the packaging been given a makeover but the actual formula of these lipsticks is something completely fresh from Bobbi Brown.
If you love a real effortless lip colour to wear that doesn’t require constant reapplication and just fades seamlessly throughout the day then these are going to be right up your street. The formula delivers a flushed stain to the lips with a soft matte finish. It is almost like you have blotted down your favourite lipstick to give that lived-in look but the texture isn’t at all drying. These lipsticks are super hydrating, soft and smooth and packed full of vitamins and beeswax which allows them to glide on easily and comfortably. They look really pigmented in the bullet but actually once you apply them you soon discover they are softer and more like a balm which is perfect for me – I look for an easy breezy type makeup to pop on in the mornings without the worry of touching it up during the day.
With 20 shades there is a real mix of colours to pick from, from deep Autumnal berries and burgundies, to pinks, reds and pretty nudes. Some of the photos make them all look very similar but actually there is a true variety and difference with each lippie you pick and try out. I have found myself gravitating towards the light pinks and soft nudes and if you like similar lip colours to me then I definitely recommend you check out Angel, Babe, Bare, Lilac and Cali Rose.
