The Body Shop Colour Crush Shine Lipsticks Review

The Body Shop Colour Crush Shine Lipsticks

In the warmer weather I prefer a lighter lipstick formulation and find myself more drawn to moisturising and to an extent glossy lipsticks. One product that offers all of this and more is The Body Shop Colour Crush Shine Lipsticks, if you like products in the vain of Revlon Lip Butters but wish for something more sheer this could be the very thing for you.

Can I be entirely honest? Of course I can it is my blog! Growing up I used to deem The Body Shop naff and thought it was for hippies. No really! Then one day I went in (begrudgingly may I add) with a friend while she stocked up on Banana Shampoo and the rest they say is history. Over the years I have seen The Body Shop evolve and find that as the years go by the make-up products seem to be more and more desirable - well for me at least. The packaging of The Body Shop Colour Crush Shine Lipsticks is great, small, sleek silver tubes that don't look nor feel cheap and should appeal to most. They travel well and are a great size for popping into a bag or even pocket!

Within The Body Shop Colour Crush Shine Lipstick range there is ten shades which includes standard hues such as red, nude and a good few pinks. The great thing about this being a sheer formulation is that you don't have to put as much thought into purchasing a shade as they don't mask the natural lip colour so in theory all 10 shades should be wearable for all! I have the following colours: 14 - Magenta de Rouge, this looks a lot brighter in the bullet than it is on the lips. Once worn it is a light but fairly bright sheer pink. I also have 15 Fuchsia Flirt - another pink, this leans slightly red but again is fairly bright and lastly 18 Sunset Romance - a pink based coral. As you will see below all three shades don't look all that dissimilar on the lips although you can see the differences in the arm swatches. This of course is due to the formula being sheer.

Sheer, moisturising and slightly glossy is how I would sum up The Body Shop Colour Crush Shine Lipsticks. They are essentially a step up from a tinted lip balm but offer a little more pigment and less slip and slide than a typical balm. The Body Shop Colour Crush Shine Lipsticks feel light on the lips, are comfortable and don't have a tendency to cling to dry areas. As they are slightly balm like the wear time is fairly restricted - around an hour or so per application and no that doesn't include eating or drinking. Despite having a glossy sheen they are not in the slightest sticky and don't have a tendency to smudge or smear. All in all a great summer lipstick or the perfect choice for those that prefer a hydrating slick of colour rather than a full coverage lipstick.

  14. I've got two shades already and they apply and wear like a dream. I deem them to be rather good in colour payoff but my lips aren't all that pigmented on their own, so I get more colour out of the sheer. Love them.

  15. I love that they're nourishing and the colour on the stick is awesome, but I'd prefer more lasting power and pigmentation :(
