At this time of year most of us need to wear a touch of colour to warm up our faces. Nothing alters your appearance more than a quick swipe of lipstick. If, like me, you find lipsticks can be drying, you will want to try Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color which comes in a variety of shades.
It is combination of lipstick and balm so you get with just one swipe a rich-coloured stained semi-matt effect that does not dry out your lips. I have incredibly dry lips and prefer a subtle colour for every day rather than a dramatic look. Therefore, I prepped my lips with a separate clear balm and then applied a touch of the Lilac using my finger. I pressed it into my lower lip and worked it in. The result was my lips only better. It also lasts well.
For the evening I tried Cranbury which is another pretty shade. You can achieve a dramatic look with these lipsticks if you apply more. What I specifically like is that the colour gradually fades but gets softer and still looks pretty after a cup of coffee.
To find a range that I like with more than one shade to suit me is rather rare. This line has got me hooked.
If you want to try out a new look or would like to try out more products in the range, head to Bobbi Brown Cosmetics Pro Studio in London’s Soho. It is a playground for make-up artists and aficionados. You can also sign up for master classes and workshops which will be held in its special Creative Studio.
If you do not live in London, this is a great excuse to plan a trip.
