Review: Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in Cranberry

I have never tried Bobbi Brown’s product before. The only time I came across this brand was when my favourite Youtubers Elle and Blair did an interview with her. The only item I ever owned from her was actually a beauty book she released and I got it as a Christmas present.

As I have too many makeup, I have not ventured out to try her products. Not until I saw this lipstick when I came across it from Nuyou Facebook post. It was like the 2018 lip color of the year and Pony happened to be wearing it.

From Bobbi Brown’s website The look of a lipstick meets the feel of a balm for our most wearable lip yet. Loaded with crushed pigments and lip-loving ingredients, it’s the ultimate swipe and go formula. Rich in Vitamins E and C and beeswax, the balmy formula glides on comfortably with a satin matte finish that leaves lips hydrated and kissably soft. Plus, it won’t feather or fade for crush-worthy color that lasts all day. Ingredient: Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil , Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride , Isopropyl Lanolate , Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax\Candelilla Cera\Cire De Candelilla , Cetyl Lactate , Paraffin , Beeswax\Cera Alba\Cire D’Abeille , Nylon-12 , Microcrystalline Wax\Cera Microcristallina\Cire Microcristalline , Tocopherol , Ascorbyl Palmitate , Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate , Linalool , Limonene , Citral , Benzyl Benzoate , Geraniol , Fragrance (Parfum) , [+/- Mica , Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891) , Iron Oxides (Ci 77491) , Iron Oxides (Ci 77492) , Iron Oxides (Ci 77499) , Yellow 6 Lake (Ci 15985) , Red 7 Lake (Ci 15850) , Manganese Violet (Ci 77742) , Red 6 (Ci 15850) , Red 7 (Ci 15850) , Red 27 (Ci 45410) , Blue 1 Lake (Ci 42090) , Red 28 Lake (Ci 45410) , Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140) , Red 22 Lake (Ci 45380) , Carmine (Ci 75470) , Red 21 (Ci 45380) , Orange 5 (Ci 45370) , Bismuth Oxychloride (Ci 77163)]

Color: Cranberry, the same one Pony used.

What I love about this product

  • Color is really pigmented and long lasting. I did not really need to do any touch-up as the colors are really intact.
  • It has a matte finish but it does not dry out my lips like how some matte lipstick does.
  • Application is really smooth due to it’s balmy texture and one swipe does the trick. The color also does not feather or smudge. If you want a more intense color payoff, you can swipe a few more layers on.
  • It is easy to apply so all makeup newbies do not have to worry.

This is the how the color looks on me. According to Etude House, my skin tone is more towards Autumn Muted. Cheap Thrill: I have the same skin tone as Pony, so whatever color of makeup she uses, I am gonna use it to!! This was taken without any direct sunlight or filter. I love the color as it is really suits my skin and does not make me look older. This was taken without filter but with sunlight. This is how the color looks swatched against my hand.

What I dislike

Not sure if it is because of the beeswax in it but the lipstick has a clay scent. It is not offensive but because the color is nice, I am willing to overlook this. If you are interested to try, go by the counter and smell it to see if you are ok with the scent.

Price: $41

Overall, I am in love with this lipstick, despite the scent. Color payoff is amazing, longlasting and does not dry out my already dry lips. I would definitely re-purchase this product.
