I met Bobbi Brown's Crushed Liquid Lip

If you finally found a feel-good formula for a lip product, you embrace it right away and wear it on a Monday!

That's how I felt when I first tried the newest Crushed Liquid Lip from Bobbi Brown.

The look of a liquid lipstick meets the comfortable feel of a balm and the plumped-up sheen of a gloss. Created with a superfruit blend featuring cranberry, blueberry and raspberry extracts, this emollient-rich, full-coverage formula glides on with pure color pigments and offers nourishing comfort and moisture—both instantly and over time.
Featured as the "best lipstick" in O, The Oprah Magazine (May 2019).
Paraben-free, phthalate-free, sulfate-free, talc-free, mineral oil-free, gluten-free.

This has been around for quite some time because my very good friend (Blogger Friend from Malaysia) Paris B of My Women Stuff reviewed these last May  and I got to know about this product through her!  When she posted how much she loved these, I knew I will love them even more!  

The product is housed in a usual liquid lipstick type of packaging with a unique applicator.  I love that the applicator is slanted and how I can easily apply without over-lining my lips!  The tip is just perfect to define my lips as I fill the rest of the product in!

There are a total of 14 shades in this collection, Bobbi Brown divided them into 3 categories ---

  • Bold Berries (Big Apple, Cherry Crush, In a Jam, Cool Beets, Haute Cocoa)
  • Fun Brights (Mango Mood, Main Squeeze, Peach & Quiet, Bittersweet)
  • Lush Nudes (Smoothie Move, Give a Fig, Juice Date, Lychee Baby, Hippy Shake)
Swatch: Main Squeeze
I got Main Squeeze which is part of the Fun Brights category which is (honestly) my least favorite for the year.  I am into nudes, browns and neutrals nowadays so seeing my big lips bright and sparkly appears uncomfortably different for me.

BUT, upon seeing how I looked on photos even on IG Stories during my unboxing, I realized, hey, I got to bright myself back into using bright colored lippies once again!

But let's not judge this based from the color, Main Squeeze is super saturated.  I get an opaque color straight from tube to lips in a single swipe!  And that's not all, I honestly believe Bobbi Brown when they said that these are comfortable and has a smooth finish - because this really does!  I can apply this alone on a very dry, parched lips and I will feel the immediate comfort and my lips instantly hydrated.  

For a super emollient and rich moisture lip product, it surprised me that this lasted me through eating and drinking with a bit of fading, the shine actually disappears a bit making me love this lip product even more (you know when you have big lips, you steer clear from glossy lip products!) , so the smartest way to apply this is just on the center of my lips and gently blur out the outer corner of my lips with my fingers!  Then if I like to remove the excess shine, I just blot once with a clean tissue and I'm a happy camper!

Discover all your favorite formulas and shades at local Bobbi Brown counters at Rustan's Makati, SM Mall of Asia, SM Aura, SM North EDSA, SM Megamall and SM Makati Department store.

 Do you like this color on me?
Do you think I'll stick to browns and nudes or should I start wearing colors?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
