The Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil Infused Gloss collection launched over a year ago, but I’d never tried the formula for myself, until recently.
I love lip gloss, and I love lip oils, so a hybrid formula combining the two was always going to be a winner, and there are so many beautiful shades to choose from.
“A non-sticky, moisturizing lip gloss infused with a blend of nutrient-rich botanical oils in 12 sheer shades from bare to berry to bold.“
You could choose any six products from their award nominated collection, and I had to choose the Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil Infused Gloss as it was worth £19 alone, and the price of the box was £28, with five more products.
These glossy lip oils launched as part of the Bobbi Brown spring 2020 collection, and they’ve been a massively popular launch for the brand, and I couldn’t wait to try one for myself.
The range of lip oils were inspired their Crushed Lip Colour Lipsticks, and they’re perfect for those that don’t like a full on, opaque lip colour but still want the conditioning treatment and hydration of a lip balm with a pretty shine on the lips.
As I mentioned above, I got the Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil Infused Gloss in the shade New Romantic. There weren’t any other shades available, it was just New Romantic, but it’s such a pretty shade, so I’m definitely happy with Latest in Beauty’s shade choice.
Bobbi Brown describe New Romantic as being a mid-tone neutral pink, which I’d say is pretty accurate. It’s a very flattering pink which I feel would look good on everyone, regardless of age or skin tone.
It offers a good level of pigmentation for a lip gloss, and it feels comfortable on the lips. I’d definitely say the consistency is very much of a lip gloss than it is a lip oil, but it’s not sticky or gloopy whatsoever.
I feel like the Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil Infused Gloss nourishes the lips a little during wear, but it doesn’t offer the same hydration and nourishment of a straight up lip oil like the Clarins Lip Oils do, for example.
I find that it lasts for around two hours, which is pretty average for a lip gloss, but it’s very pretty and comfortable to wear, which is exactly what I want from a lip gloss.
