Bobbi Brown Buff Crushed Lip ColorBobbi Brown Buff Crushed Lip Color ($29.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a soft, peachy coral with warmer undertones and a natural sheen. It had medium, buildable color coverage that did not apply as evenly as anticipated on my lips. I also had issues with the product settling into my deeper lip lines, which emphasized the texture of my lips overall. The texture was lightweight, thin, and had light slip while it had a firmer feel when applied. It lasted for three hours and felt lightly moisturizing while worn.

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, more complex balm as it glided effortlessly across my lips. Still, it didn’t feel wet, emollient, or oily, waxier 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 soothing and flattering in finish/texture. The wear typically lasted between three and six hours, with some of the more affluent/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).
