[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] This new launch from Bobbi Brown could not be more up my street if it tried. The Bobbi Brown Crushed Creamy Colour for Cheeks & Lips is a sheeny-blurry balm texture than can be used (as the title suggests) on both lips and cheeks.
There are four shades to choose from – I have Creamy Coral and Tulle (which is described as a mid-tone pink but I’d say it’s more of a nutty colour) but there is also Pink Punch and Latte.
Yes, I did think twice about this and wished they’d sent a pink one! There’s a careful balance of colour in this product – enough to make its presence known on lips but not so much you over-do your cheeks. I would recommend a brush for cheeks because it doesn’t diffuse quite as well as I’d like it to on cheeks using just fingertips. They’re £24 each HERE but there is 20% off site-wide so if you have some stocking up to do, now would be a good time. There’s a free eye palette too if you spend over £85 (disconcertingly easy to do!).
At the same time there are some new shades for Crushed Lip Colour (£25) – above, I have Berry Bright and Parisian Red (a beautiful pillar box). If you don’t know the texture of Crushed Lip, it’s a soft matte – it feels very balmy and doesn’t have that puckering effect that really matte finishes can have.
In the swatch above, it’s Tulle, Creamy Coral, Berry Bright and Parisian Red (HERE).
Going from top left clockwise, Tulle, Creamy Coral, Parisian Red and Berry Bright.
