Babe

Bobbi Brown Babe Crushed Lip Color ($29.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had buildable pigmentation from medium to mostly opaque with a smooth, waxy consistency that didn’t tug but didn’t feel overly wet or emollient when applied. The lipstick went on evenly and stayed on well for four hours with a non-drying formula.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.11 oz. - $263.64 Per Ounce

The formula 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).

All swatches are with two layers.

Lilac

Bobbi Brown Lilac Crushed Lip Color ($29.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had pigmentation that built from medium to opaque (two layers) color payoff. The lipstick had a lightweight, smooth consistency that didn’t tug during application, but had a waxy feel and a faint sheen. It wore well for four and a half hours on me and was lightly hydrating over time.

Plum

Bobbi Brown Plum Crushed Lip Color ($29.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium plum with strong, warm undertones and a natural sheen. The color payoff built from medium to mostly opaque (two layers), and the color went on evenly and didn’t emphasize my lip lines. The texture was lightweight, thin without being too clingy, and had a waxy consistency that didn’t tug during application but never felt truly emollient or creamy. It lasted for just over four and a half hours on me and was non-drying.

It’s a true toss-up between Lilac and Babe! Love both, but fairly certain I wouldn’t need to have both. There is just one thing that has me a little bit concerned though; the “waxy” descriptor. Like, lip balm Chapstick type waxy? Or something else?
