Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colour

One of the launches from Bobbi Brown that I was super excited about was the Crushed Lip Colors. The way they were described was dreamy and I couldn't wait to give them a try! It is said to be inspired by the effortless and easy beauty routines of the brand’s girl crushes. Undone beauty, just a hint of lip colour, effortless barely-there makeup look? Yeah, I’m sold!
Finally, after some wait, I got my hands on 2 shades (after a lot of contemplation and resisting picking up 4 more!). Take a look...

There are around 20 shades in this range (how I am resisting picking them all is a story for another day!) so there is a colour for everyone here. The packaging is lovely. Black matte outer tube with a coloured band in the centre (easy to identify) and the perfectly matched coloured tube underneath (how very very gorgeous!).

How are these any different from your regular lipsticks? 

The Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Colors are designed to give your lips a blotted down effect... which is how I usually love wearing lipsticks - smooshing it with the finger to give it a very natural lived-in look and stained lips effect (you are getting the picture right?).

The crushed lip colours are neither too matte nor glossy and have more of a semi-matte finish. The Vit E C and beeswax in the formula makes these incredibly comfortable to wear throughout the day with a balm-like texture. The softer shades (which is what I have) last 3-4 hours on me although I have heard that the darker shades last longer.

Lilac, a mauvey blue toned pink will suit light-medium skin tones well and is a soft everyday wear kind of colour and will work with most makeup looks. It adds colour without being too in your face or very obvious.

Bare, a nude (duh) is another lovely easy to wear colour which will suit most skin tones. It is neither too brown nor too pink nor too peach. Throw this on when you don't want to think too much. It will suit everyday office/college wear to smoky eye looks. This colour will look slightly different for everyone depending on the natural colour of your lips.

Price : 1700 INR for 3.4g (available here)

I am loving the Crushed Lip Colors and definitely intend to pick up some other shades as well (I am leaning towards the reds). If you are someone who likes the undone makeup look with hints of colour over the traditional stark lipstick look then these are right up your street! Do swatch them when you are at the counter next time and I bet you will like a couple of shades :)

Update : I have also added Cranberry, Telluride & Ruby to my collection and Smriti got the shade Plum . I have swatched all the shades on video HERE :)
