The Body Shop is know for their bath and body products, specifically their amazing line of Body Butters. However, if you haven’t tried any of their beauty products yet, you’re really missing out! So far I’ve tried their regular Colour Crush Lipsticks, Nail Polish, some Cheek Stain and Glitter Liner, and the new Universal Lip & Cheek Stick. They have all been great!
Today I have some of their Colour Crush Shine Lipstick, which are slightly more sheer and glossy than the original version. They are currently have 12 shades available and are infused with a delicate rose fragrance. I picked out 4 shades online, which was a little tough because the swatches on the site aren’t the best. Though, I am happy with what I chose!
#18 Sunset Romance– a sheer orange/coral.
#5 Let’s Grape It On– a light purple with gold shimmer/frost.
#12 Poppy the Question– a neutral berry-red with gold shimmer/frost.
#15 Fuchsia Flirt– a sheer juicy pink fuchsia. (Looks really bright in the tube, but it goes on much more sheer, very wearable!)
Since the formula of these is sheer, they definitely don’t last as long as the original colour crush lipsticks, I get about 3 hrs of wear and some do leave a slight stain behind. However, I don’t really mind the frequent applying all that much and I just love the slick glossy formula! I think sheer lipsticks like this are perfect for summer when it’s hot and you want your makeup to look a little more natural/dewy.
I think the best part about these kind of sheer lipsticks is that they are “less-fuss” than typical highly opaque lipstick. You don’t have to worry about getting a perfect edge when applying, making these great for on the go or “purse make-up” as I like to call it. 🙂 Out of the 4, I prefer the ones without shimmer (Sunset Romance and Fuchsia Flirt) although Poppy the Question isn’t all that bad. Let’s Grape It On really doesn’t suit me well, it might have been better without the shimmer.
Also, one of the best parts about getting makeup at TBS is their frequent sales. If you wait for a sale to buy, you can really get a good deal. Right now they have a good BOGO deal going on, but they usually always have some sort of sale!
Have you tried any makeup from TBS yet? What do you think of these lipsticks?
