Colour Crush™ Shine Lipsticks by The Body Shop

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.

Body Shop Colour Crush Shine

Let’s take a look at the shade range of these pretty Colour Crush™ Shine Lipsticks.

The Body Shop Colour Crush 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..

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!







Blueberry goodies by The Body Shop!

So today I am really excited to share with you some body care that I have been using this last month. It’s the Body Shops new Blueberry Range. Now, although this is newly released, it actually came out once before as a limited edition line, which I purchased and used and I am thrilled it’s back 😀

The Body Shop Blueberry Shower gel Cream

The range includes a shower gel, body scrub, body lotion, body butter and lip butter. Bath time has been so much fun cos I just love the smell of these; they truly do uplift the senses and refresh you in the morning. Every time I pump out the shower cream it feels like I am dousing myself in a blueberry smoothie! Smells sooo good! I love that these lather up nice, and it’s a great everyday staple. At any given time I have at least 4-5 Body Shop shower gels waiting to be used!

The Body Shop Blueberry Scrub Gelee

I keep forgetting to use the exfoliator regularly, as I am always in a rush! But when I do use it, it’s actually one of the most gentle scrubs and I find it such a treat. This followed with the body cream leaves skin feeling super soft, hydrated and smelling so delicious. If you are a scrub junkie, I’d recommend this.

The Body Shop Blueberry range cream lotion

As a long time user of the brand, I’d say 90% of the time I buy their body butters and shower gels. They are excellent products. And the Blueberry body butter is no exception to that. Since I just ran out of my HG body moisturizer, the Mango body butter, the Blueberry one stepped in. I use it for the dryer areas like my heels.. and leave the body lotion for the other parts of my body. If you have very dry heels or elbows I’d say go for the Mango one, it’s the BEST. I’ve used it consecutively for years now. Repurchasing it over and over. And it comes with the Bubbly stamp of approval! 😀

All in all, it’s a lovely range. And I am thrilled that the Body Shop generously gave me these to try out! Please do check them out whenever you visit the store, and I guarantee you’d be sold the second you smell them! 😉
