Grenadine

Bobbi Brown Grenadine Crushed Lip Color ($29.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a reddish-berry with subtle, cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had buildable pigmentation from medium to mostly opaque (two layers), though it became more even in overall application with a second layer. The texture was smooth, waxy without being too clingy, and comfortable to apply and to wear. The formula was forgiving of lip texture and lines as it didn’t settle into mine. It wore well for five hours, left a faint stain behind, and was neither drying nor hydrating.

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.

Cherry

Bobbi Brown Cherry Crushed Lip Color ($29.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a satin sheen. This shade was a real chameleon as it appeared warmer in the tube, cooler swatched, and more neutral-to-warm applied to my lips. It had buildable color payoff that ranged from medium (one layer) to semi-opaque (two layers). The lipstick had a smooth, waxy texture that didn’t tug on my lips during application but never felt emollient or really cream-like either. It adhered evenly and didn’t emphasize my lip lines, while the wear clocked in at five hours with a non-drying formula behind it.

Blackberry

Bobbi Brown Blackberry Crushed Lip Color ($29.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-brown with warmer undertones and a soft sheen. The color payoff was buildable from semi-sheer to semi-opaque, but it applied unevenly and had a tendency to sit in my lip lines. The texture felt similar to the other shades–waxy and glided across my lips without tugging–but the application had room for improvement. It stayed on well for four and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating on me.

Grenadine looks like a star! And like nothing else I own, either. Or at least I don’t think so. I’m on a bit of a raspberry red kick lately for lip and cheek shades, so this is perfection!

Blackberry would be my favourite shade, although they are all good. However this shade doesn’t have a stellar rating that you would expect from a lipstick at this price point. Lucky there are the dupes – and I Am Confident and Viginette is on my wishlist… not that I need more lipsticks!

I think BB’s lipsticks look better as a stick then on the lip. I wish they kept the depth of color you see in the tube. 🙁
