If you look on my vanity, you’ll notice it’s oversaturated with lipsticks—liquid lipsticks to be exact. I’m always looking for the perfect one. My standards are high, as I need a lipstick that’s equally moisturizing as it is long-wearing. This is especially difficult in the wintertime, when many formulas are too drying for my weathered lips. I’ve tried nearly every brand’s liquid lipstick, and many are good, but just one goes in every purse, backpack, and godforsaken pocketless tote I carry.
Introducing Bobbi Brown’s Crushed Liquid Lipstick. Launched earlier this year, this lippie packs the pigment of a liquid lipstick, the moisture of a lip balm, and the finish of a gloss. Formulated with skin-conditioning emollients and a super fruit blend of cranberries, blueberries, raspberries, and acai, this offers the ultimate hydration for your lips. Unlike other moisturizing lipsticks, you don’t have to sacrifice the color. There are reds, pinks, purples, and nudes in the lineup! Available in 14 full-coverage shades, this nourishing formula will glide on smoothly and stay on comfortably.
When I swiped on the lipstick for the first time, I immediately noticed the difference. The color was luxuriously creamy and the finish was stunningly shiny, but it felt like a sheer balm on my lips. I was also pleasantly surprised at how long it lasted. It stayed put through my morning coffee and lunchtime salad. As the day went on, I realized why this lipstick is different (and better) than all the rest. There was absolutely no feathering or cracking, and my lips didn’t feel dry at all! Although I had to reapply after a few hours, I didn’t mind doing so because the formula went on so effortlessly.
I tried on a darker nude shade called Juicy Date, but I’m looking forward to trying the other shades, too. Oh and guess what? We’re actually sending Juicy Date as well as red Big Apple and rosy Smoothie Move to 1,000 lucky Influensters this month. If you want to get your hands on this Crushed Liquid Lipstick, head to Sephora.
