Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color ($29.00 for 0.11 oz.) is supposed to have “high color payoff” with a “blotted-down stain effect” that “glides on comfortably” and keeps lips “hydrated.” It’s also supposed to be long-wearing and is buildable from “blotted-down” in one layer to “intense color payoff” in two to three layers. The majority of the shades in the range have medium to semi-opaque coverage in one layer, and they were buildable from there with two to three layers. A few shades applied less evenly than others, though most went on well enough.

The consistency was more like a firmer, harder balm, as it glided easily across my lips, but it didn’t feel wet, emollient, or oily, more waxy like a traditional lipstick but very lightweight. Some shades pulled into my lip lines and a few emphasized my natural lip texture, while others were more smoothing and flattering in finish/texture. The wear typically lasted between three and six hours with some of the richer/darker shades leaving subtle stains behind. The formula was more non-drying to lightly hydrating, but it wasn’t hydrating enough that I’d put it in that category (hydrating lipstick). They had a faint, lemon-meets-wax scent that sometimes wasn’t noticeable at all (depended on the shade).

Something about that final description made me instantly think Lemon Pledge Furniture Polish! Eeewww!
Therefore, I am very glad that only 3 shades found their way onto my WL: Grenadine, Telluride and Watermelon. Since I’m able to deal with the lemon scent of Bite’s lipstick formulas, it is possible that one of these would be alright. Really would need to try one on and wear it to see before I buy even one shade.

For what it’s worth, I personally find these lipsticks smell intensely of fennel/aniseed, not lemon. I don’t get any lemon, just the most fennel-strong scent I’ve ever experienced in a lipstick. Hope you like anise/licorice!

For Bobbi Brown, this is a really good result. I still think they are expensive and the shades easily duped, but at least this brand is not delivering a dud for the price.

Thank you for reviewing these, I would have missed them completely because Bobbi Brown is not on my radar and I like the finish and I’m always looking for (semi)sheer lipstick.
