In the Flow

Bobbi Brown In the Flow Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss ($27.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a medium-dark reddish plum with subtle, warm undertones and a high-shine, glossy finish. I swear there was very, very shimmer that I could see in the swatch, but i didn’t really catch it on my lips. It had a smooth, more gel-like texture that was plush but still a little creamy, so it spread easily and was comfortable to wear. It had semi-sheer color coverage that went on fairly evenly, but there was a smidgen of product that sank into my deeper lip lines. It stayed on well for four hours and was moisturizing over time.

Formula Overview

$27.00/0.2 oz. - $135.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "ultra-shiny" (it is) with a "cushiony, comfy feel" (nailed it) that has a "burst of color" (sheer to medium coverage) that is "ultra-hydrating." It has more of a smooth, gel-like texture, which is where it gets that "cushiony, comfy feel," and it spread easily over my lips and felt comfortable to wear.

There was a strong shine that lingered for two to three hours during wear with shades lasting, generally, between three and five hours overall (with reduced shine toward the end). Some shades had slight to light product that sank into my lip lines, but the higher-shine finish made that less noticeable in person. The formula felt hydrating over time, and they had a herbal, lemony scent but no discernible taste.

Hot Streak

Bobbi Brown Hot Streak Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss ($27.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a deep, red-coral with warm undertones and a high-shine, glossy finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation in a single layer, which went on fairly evenly (though my naturally uneven lip color made it appear less-even) and had some product that sank into my deeper lip lines. The gloss had a lightweight, non-sticky consistency that felt plush and gel-like with enough glide that it spread well, too. It lasted nicely for four hours and was hydrating while worn.

Freestyle

Bobbi Brown Freestyle Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss ($27.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish-coral with soft, warm undertones and a high-shine, glossy finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage that applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without emphasizing my lip lines. The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and spreadable with a plusher, more cream-gel hybrid texture. It wore well for four hours and was moisturizing over time.

Really liking Freestyle and In The Flow a lot for springtime shades! Both look very easy to wear and Freestyle may not even been a mirror for reapplying while out and about.

Can i ask a stupid question? What and why is there a Y and presumably other letters on the barrel of Flow? And not on the others? What is spelled? And why on one product? I always notice the odd thing out.

I really like all of these and could see myself picking a couple up. They have more pigmentation than I was expecting but appear very velvety and smooth.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
