When it comes to weekend beauty picks, I’m all about keeping things simple. Since work has been so busy recently, I’ve been enjoying the downtime weekends offer – longer lies, a more relaxed pace, and a chance to catch up on all those errands which build up during the week. As a result, I don’t really like getting too dolled up. I prefer just throwing my hair in a ponytail, and brushing on a bit of bronzer and a no-thought gloss. Which is where Bobbi Brown’s Crushed Liquid Lip in Juicy Date comes in.
A warm, terracotta nude, it is the perfect shade for adding a little warmth and colour of days when I still want to feel groomed, but without the faff of a full face of makeup. Packaged in the line’s signature sleek packaging, the formula feels more like a light balm on the lips. For relaxed weekends I loved the Crushed Liquid Lip patted on with a finger, as it gives a beautiful diffused glow of colour, whilst on days I’m feeling a little more ‘done’ I apply it with the doe foot applicator for a stronger pop of colour.
Whilst many liquid lipsticks can harden on the lips, leaving them looking and feeling dried out and thin – this one keeps a juicy finish. It’s comfortable to wear, and it truly feels weightless and balmy.
