Today I'm reviewing one of my recent purchases, the Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Crushed Plum. I've been looking for a more vampy, darker winter shade and I've read some bloggers rave about this color, so I decided to give it a try. It must be a popular color, because at my local Bobbi Brown counter, this was the only lipstick shade which was sold out. However, I managed to hunt it down in the end, and I'm so happy I did!

This is my first lipstick from Bobbi Brown, and this is from their matte line. I have to say, this is hands down the best matte lipstick I have ever owned! It goes on so smooth, it's not drying and has great pigmentation.
The color is a red based berry shade, and it makes a perfect choice for wintertime. It didn't bleed on me at all, even when I used it without a lipliner. The closest shade in my collection is Afghan Red by NARS (which is more sheer and a touch lighter), but I also swatched Rebel by MAC next to it, although Rebel is a lot more purple based.

FYI the rest of my make-up on the picture above:
Eyes: UDPP, MAC Sumptuous Olive (lid), Wedge (crease), Brule (highlight&blend), Maybelline Illegal Length Mascara; Face: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Compact Foundation, Benefit Erase Paste, Rimmel Stay Matte Powder, KIKO Soft Touch Blush in 104
Overall, I'm really happy that I finally have this lippie in my arsenal now and I'm sure I will use it a lot in the months to come!
