In a Jam
Bobbi Brown In a Jam Crushed Liquid Lipstick ($27.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a muted, darker pink with moderate, warm undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered well to my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip lines.
There was a touch of streaking along the outer edge of my lips, though I didn’t notice it in person (just in the photo). The consistency was lightweight, smooth, and spreadable, so it felt more gel-like than a true cream finish. It lasted well for five hours and was moisturizing over time.
Bobbi Brown Bitter Sweet Crushed Liquid Lipstick ($27.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy plum with subtle, cool undertones and a glossy, cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which spread evenly across my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip lines–it smoothed out most of them, actually.
The consistency was lightweight, more like a cream-gel hybrid as it had substance but felt plush and cushion-y on. It wore well for five and a half hours and was hydrating over time.
Bobbi Brown Cool Beets Crushed Liquid Lipstick ($27.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a deep, reddened burgundy with subtle, cool undertones and a glossy, jelly-like finish. It lacked the opacity of a lot of the other shades, so the translucency gave it more of a jelly-like finish than a cream on; more of a watercolor or stained effect with a heavy dose of glossy shine.
This one worked better gently blotted (so it looked more like a lip stain) or applied over a lip liner, as the medium to semi-opaque coverage didn’t go on as evenly and had a tendency to sit in my lip lines noticeably. The color stayed on well for over six hours and was moisturizing to wear.
The formula is supposed to offer “bold, glossy color with [a] balm feel.” The majority of the shades have semi-opaque to opaque coverage with a glossy, more jelly-like finish–plusher, shinier than a cream one–and live up to most of the formula’s claims. It has the look of a liquid lipstick-meets-lipgloss with the coverage and finish. They’re very comfortable to wear as they feel like a plusher gel, which gives them great spreadability but prevents them from getting into lip lines or emphasizing lip texture. They also have longer-wear–often pushing well over six hours–and feel nourishing over time.
