Regal

Bobbi Brown Regal Crushed Lip Color ($29.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark red with strong, warm undertones and a natural sheen. The pigmentation built up from medium to mostly opaque (two layers), while the color went on evenly and didn’t emphasize my lip lines. It had a lightweight, thinner consistency that felt waxy as it slid across my lips but never had that wet, creamy feeling that most non-matte lipsticks have these days. I felt like this helped it adhere for longer-wear but didn’t lead to as much hydration as the formula was supposed to bring to the party. It wore well for five hours 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.

Watermelon

Bobbi Brown Watermelon Crushed Lip Color ($29.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink-coral with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. The lipstick had buildable color payoff from medium in one layer to opaque in two layers. The texture felt waxy without noticeable slip/wetness, so it didn’t tug during application but had a thinner, very lightweight feel on my lips. The color applied fairly evenly, but there was very slight streaking along the edges. It stayed on nicely for five hours and felt non-drying while worn.

Crush

Bobbi Brown Crush Crushed Lip Color ($29.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a natural sheen. It had buildable color coverage that ranged from semi-sheer to semi-opaque. The color applied somewhat evenly, but it caught on my lip texture and sank into my deeper lip lines; I felt like it didn’t visually look as patchy to my eye just because of the brightness level of the hue itself. The consistency was lightweight, thin without being clingy, and waxy as it glided across my lips without tugging but did not feel emollient. It stayed on well for five hours, left a faint stain behind, and felt neither drying nor hydrating over time.

“I don’t need another red. I don’t need another red. I don’t need another red. ”
But but Regal looks sublime!

Watermelon is a lovely looking shade that while I know I have at least one dupe for, my tube of Maybelline Shocking Coral is around 6 years old, so idk about using that!

All three are lovely shades. I would likely go for Crush as that is my preferred shade and undertone but since I have 4 of the dupes, yes, 4 dupes, I think I am passing. Another save to maintain my no buy. I have to say though, if Tom Ford’s Liev is still around come April or July, when I make a trip to Seattle, I have a feeling it will come home with me!
