Bobbi Brown Lip Crayon (Raisin Berry)

The reintroduction of of Bobbi Brown's lip crayons into the collection is proving to be a great idea. The thick pencils are among the most useful lip products one can find. They are wonderfully creamy and easy to apply, even when one is in a hurry. They travel well and do great on the go. The texture is like a high quality matte/satin lipstick, so you can wear them plain or topped with a clear gloss (my preference, though the pencil is light and not drying at all). The staying power is superb- the color barely transfers to the bottle of water or tea cup. I couldn't ask for anything more. The crayons come with their own sharpener, which is always nice (I really need to find an efficient way to store the various sharpeners).

I bought the Raisin Berry crayon, which was the darkest one offered. It's a brown-based berry with a bit of red in it. Good for evenings but also appropriate for daytime, especially if your lips are naturally dark. I also tested and liked Wild Rose, but decided I have enough "my lips, but better" neutral shades. Still, highly recommended.

Bottom line: Love.

Bobbi Brown Lip Crayon ($22) is available from every semi-decent department store and the company's website.

Photos and freaky looking inner wrist: all mine.


  1. I love lip crayons. Thanks for the heads-up.

  2. Did you ever try Chanel's Le Crayon Gloss? Those were (are) my favorite. I have them stock piled as they have been d/c'd I believe.

  3. I wanted to let you know that I really appreciate the lip colors that you review. It seems like most beauty sites tend to review only nude, pink, or pale shades, but I LOVE reds and berries. Thank you for offering some diversity of color reviews, it really makes for an enjoyable viewing experience :-)

  4. Finally! Someone who blogs and swatches colors I use!! Thank you for that. :)

    I have a BB Lip Crayon, and although I love, love, love it, I don't use it in the summer because it's susceptible to heat and tends to get a bit melty. Now that cooler weather is here, it's back in my touch-up bag I keep with me at all time.
