The Body Shop Makeup Series: LIPS

Today I bring to you the past post in my Body Shop Makeup Series. This post looks at some of the lip products The Body Shop have to offer. Enjoy my review…

Matte Liquid Lip

£7.00 for 8ml

Claims:

  • Glides on effortlessly
  • Applies like a gloss but sets like a creamy velvet matte lipstick
  • Long lasting
  • Lightweight & soft
  • Vegetarian
  • Available in 13 shades

My Verdict:

I did not have much faith in these lipsticks when I first saw them. I am not a big fan of Matte lipsticks as I usually find they are hard to apply and are dry and uncomfortable on my lips. These ones however, have a lovely creamy texture. they applied nicely to my lips and were non drying. My lips actually felt quite hydrated after them. They are extremely pigmented and very long lasting. There is a great collection of colours available. I had 3 shades to try; 020 Taipei Orchid (a nude pink), 032 Windsor Rose (a brown nude) and 014 Sydney Amaryllis (a lovely bright red). All colours were really nice. If you like a matte finish lipstick then you will love these. They are a good price too.

 

Shine Lip Liquid

£7.00 for 8ml

Claims:

  • Sheer coverage
  • Non sticky lightweight texture
  • Enriched with oils
  • Vegan
  • Available in 6 shades

My Verdict:

This is a high gloss lipstick with a tint of colour. I had the shade 002 Strawberry Bonbon. It smelt divine. I will be honest, this product was not for me. It was very glossy on the lip and I actually found it was sticky to apply. It reminded me of children lip glosses. A nice enough product but just not my cup of tea.

 

Colour Crush Lipstick

£8.00 for 4.1g

Claims:

  • High impact colour
  • hydrating
  • Vegan
  • Enriched with sweet cherry seed oil, beeswax and marula oil to lock in moisture
  • Available in 20 shades

My Verdict:

I was really impressed with these lipsticks. I had three shades to try; 201 Japanese Blossom (a dark rich red), 005 Kobe Orchid (a very sheer nude colour) and 315 Sardinia Hibiscus (a warm browny red). They apply really smoothly to the lip and glide on effortlessly. They are hydrating  and non drying. They leave a pigmented finish and are long lasting. I was so impressed I bought the Sardinia Hibiscus lipstick. I think it is a good price too for the quality.

 

Lip Definer

£8.00 for 1.1g

Claims:

  • Soft texture

  • Available in 10 shades

  • Vibrant colour

My Verdict:

This is a great lip liner. I had the shade Windsor Rose to try which was a neutral pink shade. They are soft to apply with a creamy texture. I often find lip pencils are drying on my skin but this one was non drying which I was pleased with. I have also bought this and it works well with the lipstick.

I hope you enjoyed my last post in the Body Shop Makeup Series. I have really enjoyed testing and reviewing so many products from the same brand. It really allowed me to get a true feeling and opinion for the quality of the products. The Body Shop has always had great skincare and makeup product and my recent reviews have shown how I still think their products are excellent. No matter what your skin tones are or what your skin type is like they have such a wide variety that there really is something for everyone. Price wise, they are quite high priced compared to the high street brands but I feel the quality of the products is a lot higher than high street brands. I have compared some of the products to much higher priced brands and with the same, if not better, quality.
