Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lip Balm Review and Swatches | The Beauty Look Book

Bobbi Brown launched a new lip formula called the Crushed Liquid Lip Balm ($26 each for 6 ml/.2 fl oz). These are saturated balm-like colors with a liquid lipstick kind of vibe. There are 14 color options with neutrals, bolds and brights. They’re very comfortable on the lips with a moisturizing but lightweight feel. The Crushed Liquid Lips are scented just like her regular lipsticks – it’s a little fruity with a lipstick scent mixed together. Finish has a soft shine cream with medium to full coverage. Everything applies smoothly and all the colors are very wearable for any kind of occasion or mood. There were only two shades I felt was a little streaky because of the contrast to my lip but it smooths out with a little extra blending. Lychee Baby and Cool Beets needed a little more blending but they weren’t too high maintenance.

I love everything about these. I love the packaging where you can see the actual color from the tube. The applicators are really cute too with a beveled tip sponge – it’s not your typical sponge tip, I think the design is really well made.

Colors and swatches below. I feel like the reds look really similar on me:

  • Lychee Baby is a soft peachy nude, this one requires a little blending but you’ll see in the lip swatches it smooths out, I thought it would be too pale for me but it’s not!
  • Hippy Shake is a pale cool mauve pink
  • Juicy Date is the perfect pinky brown cream
  • Give A Fig is a pinkish fig pink
  • Peach and Quiet is a medium bright pink peach
  • Mango Mood is a bright coral red
  • Main Squeeze is a bright pinkish red
  • Cherry Crush is a bold deep red cherry
  • Big Apple is a bright red
  • Bitter Sweet is a mauve plum with blue tones
  • In A Jam is a berry mauve plum with neutral tones
  • Smoothie Move is a brown pink
  • Haute Cocoa is a cocoa brown
  • Cool Beets is a dark purple in the tube, it applies more like a berry stain, this one also requires a little blending, I think it would be flawless over a matching lip liner pencil

All swatched on bare lips, the colors cover the lip entirely. They don’t bleed or migrate.

I tried hard to find one downside and was hard pressed to find any. Lasting power isn’t like a liquid lipstick since it has a balmy feel. You will have to reapply but I found they stayed put well for a few hours. They adhere better to the lips compared to a stick balm like the Chanel Rouge Coco Shines or YSL Volupte Shines. I think these have a solid A+. I mixed Lychee Baby and Juicy Date together for a perfect neutral. I’m not sure that I could pick a favorite, but when I tested these I started from light to deep. I was impressed with every single color.

Below wearing Lychee Baby with new hair highlights! It’s been three months since my first appointment and I went in for something different and a little bit lighter. Makeup worn:
