Body shop just launched a whole range of sheer lipsticks just in time for the warmer weather.
I received 7 gorgeous shades of these to try out and so far I am really liking them.
Let’s take a look at the shade range of these pretty Colour Crush™ Shine Lipsticks.
12- Raspberry red with golden frost
03- medium pink with a shimmer finish
18- Juicy peach coral shade with no shimmer
11- Peachy beige with no shimmer
06- light brown with a golden shimmer finish (high shimmer)
04- Mauve pink with silvery pink shimmers (high shimmer)
13- A warm deep maroon rose with golden frost (high shimmer)
So these Colour Crush Shine lipsticks are infused with Marula oil to condition and moisturize the lips.
They glide on very smooth and is one of those ‘no mirror needed’ lipsticks that you can even apply blindfolded!
I tested out shade18 for wear, and like you would have guessed these don’t last too long. Not sure how the shimmery version works out, but this one lasted around 2 1/2 hours on me. I didn’t need to reapply as it faded evenly and lips had that ‘just bitten’ look which I quite liked 🙂 I believe these would make for good everyday lipsticks when you don’t want a tonne of pigment but just moist lips with subtle colour for a groomed look. *Note that these wear quite sheer with medium to low opacity.
Here’s how 18 looks worn. Sadly the coral-ness of this neutralised on my pigmented pink lips and ended up looking more of a peachy beige. But I still LOVE this for an everyday shade..
Here’s another pic of the brighter shades which are more my kind of picks 😉
These juicy little lipsticks retail at SGD22.90 for 3.5g of product.
Available at all Body Shop stores island wide.
On a side note, I also was informed of the new special edition Raspberry body care range that was released simultaneously with this collection. Here’s the link for you to take a look at the products on offer.
The Body Butter which promised 24hr hydration caught my eye, and since my Mango Body Butter jar is officially empty, think I might pop by the store to check this one out. Also while I was snooping around the site (which is perfectly normal behavior on lazy Sundays) I spotted the Eau de Toilettes on offer for 35% in a buy two get one free deal! Think I might stock up as these make for great body splashes during warmer months! 😀
Anyways thank you for hanging around and reading all about my shopaholic tendencies >.< Hope you guys are having a great Sunday!
