Hey lovely ladies,
One more Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color review for you today. Don’t you find the shades just too delectable 😛 By the end of these reviews, I am hoping that you will be able to easily select the colour you want for yourself! So, here goes…
An all-new lipstick formula that delivers a just-kissed stain effect in one swipe. What it does: Loaded with soft matte pigments for high color payoff with a blotted-down stain effect and formulated with vitamins E and C and beeswax, this lipstick glides on comfortably and leaves lips hydrated and kissably-soft. The long-wear formula gives lips color without feeling heavy, for a un-lipstick look and feel that doesn’t feather or fade. Swipe once for a pigment-rich, stained effect or more for a fuller-coverage look—no mirror required. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates, and phthalates.
INR 1700/USD $29 for 3.4 gm (Not sure why Sephora site states 5 ml!).
My Experience with Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color Baby:
Packaging: The brand kept the packaging in line with the Bobbi Brown aesthetics by doing a cuboid back casing and yet gave it a fun and efficient twist. Each of the lipsticks have a colour-coded band which extends to the lipstick tube itself.
The colour of the band corresponds to the colour of the lipstick inside. So, if you have more than one of these, its easy to identify the shade from the packaging itself – plus it looks more fun and vibrant! The lipstick bullet is a regular twist up with the cap clicking soundly into place. The lip is indented which allows better precision in application. It comes packaged in the usual black cardboard box.
Shade: The shade, Baby, is described by the brand as a “pale soft pink” color. The shade is a light, cool-toned pink. Despite being light and cool toned, it isn’t difficult to carry off but takes a little bit of work to make it look optimally flattering on my warm skin tone. I feel the need for a prepped face, for all blemishes (blue tones) from my face to be concealed – for this shade to look pretty and flattering. The shade will not be universally flattering – so, would suggest to try before you buy.
Texture: The formula of this lipstick is in line with the other shades I have reviewed like Lilac, Angel, Watermelon, etc. The lipstick glides on effortlessly, like a lip balm and yet, does not have too much slip where it would slide off the lip line either. It deposits pigment evenly and allows you to build up pigmentation. The texture is very lightweight, moisturizing and extremely hydrating. It fills in the lines on the lips and makes them look more youthful. What is most remarkable about the lipstick is that the texture does not build up even when the pigment does. Meaning, normally, if a lipstick is not too pigmented, we build the colour by adding more swipes. However, as we add more swipes, we also end up depositing more product which adds texture to the lips and if the lipstick has a cream/satin texture, the product would end up sliding around on the lips. However, that does not happen with this lipstick. I assume it is because the texture is so light-weight. Being the texture it is, it will transfer to other surfaces on contact.
Pigmentation: Being a light shade, a single swipe gives a very light wash of colour on the lips. The colour can be easily built up – this means about 5-6 swipes at least. My lip swatches and FOTDs are with built up colours so that you can appreciate the difference between different shades in the line. However, I have shared arm swatches where one side is a single swipe of the lipstick and the other side is with multiple swipes. This will enable you to understand how low the pigmentation is and how richly it can be built up.
Lasting Power: When used as a single swipe, the shade does not last too long – maybe an hour or so of a soft stained look. With multiple swipes, and the colour at full intensity, this shade gives me about 4-4.5hours of wear and leaves a light stain. It does wear off evenly and does not get patchy. My lips feel better off thanks to the hydration provided by the lipstick.
Fragrance: There is a slight fragrance but nothing too discernible unless you put your nose to it.
Pros of Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color Baby:
- Beautiful cool-toned pink – but not universally flattering.
- Extremely lightweight texture.
- Buildable pigmentation.
- Very comfortable to wear, no feeling of dryness or clinginess.
- Hydrating formula.
- Easy to apply and get clean lines.
- It applies smoothly and evenly – no tug or pull.
- No feathering or bleeding – despite the balmy texture.
- Does not flake.
- Classy and yet fun packaging.
- Decent wear time – about 4-4.5 hours or so.
- Free from sulfates and phthalates.

Cons of Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color Baby:
- Nothing at all.
If you have fair to light skin tone, which is clear, this could easily be your go to colour, especially if you were cool toned. The quality is there but I cannot recommend this shade for all. However, I do feel that the range has a number of pretty shades to chose from, so there is no dearth of options.
