Hi everyone!! I was lucky enough to receive another FREE box from Influenster recently (in exchange for a review). They e-mailed me on Valentine’s Day, informing me that I was selected to receive the Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lip VoxBox but, it didn’t actually arrive in my mailbox until early last week.
This time, the box it came in was black and white. I noticed they updated their app and it has a black and white theme going on now, too.
The first thing I saw was the postcard and the matching black tissue paper.
By now, you may have guessed what I got, right?!
Bobbi Brown – Crush Liquid Lipstick
Shade: Smoothie Move
“This feel-good formula wraps lips in the full coverage of a liquid lip, emollient-rich moisture of a balm and sweet sheen of a gloss for a plumped-up look and comfortable feel. Plus, it’s infused with a blend of superfruit extracts, including cranberries. Fun and effortless, the 14 super saturated shades–from bare to bold to bright–are so blendable, they are virtually mistake-proof. Fall into a crush with Crushed Liquid Lip.”(via Influenster)
The swatch was VERY wet and a lot darker than it turned out to be on my lips. It did not dry down quickly, either.
My Thoughts & First Impressions
Honestly, the formula was a nightmare. It did everything you wouldn’t want your lip product to do. It transferred like crazy and when it wore it away, after not too long might I add, it left patchy colors all over my lips. It would be embarrassing to actually go out and do things with this lipstick on if you didn’t re-apply it every hour (or less!). I did really love the shade on me though, it was a nice dark and dusty rose– the shiny finish was super pretty, too and I admit I saw a small plumping effect happen. It was easy to stay within the lines of my lips and the color spread evenly. I think I prefer this style of applicator over the normal doe-footed ones.
Let me know if you’ve ever tried this lipstick or anything else by Bobbi Brown! I’d love to hear your thoughts.
