Review: The Body Shop Colour Crush lipsticks

The Body Shop Colour Crush lipsticks haven’t been with us
for that long. The Body Shop only released them on the 20th of August,
but they have been enjoying popularity ever since. When I think of The Body Shop I
think of divinely smelling hand creams, body lotions and ‘scrubyliscious’
scrubs and many other kinds of bath accessories.

One of the main advantages of this lipstick is the distance between the top-end of the cap and
the lipstick body, which is quite far and I’m pretty sure we all appreciate it.
Hand on your heart, how many times have you applied lipstick in a rush, not turned
it down properly and then just slammed it!

The collection is divided into three families; Red, Pink and
Nudes. There are 24 shades all together. Each collection of lipsticks has a cap
assigned to them according to their colour. The top is also see through, making
it easy for us to see the colour of the lippy. One thing I’m not too keen on
regarding the packaging is the colours and a silver tube just looks a bit ‘teenagey’
and too colourful for my liking.

Application and Composition

The lipsticks are incredibly pigmented, easy to apply, one
swipe can be enough to achieve a soft coloration. They contain cherry seed oil and Fair Trade marula oil from
Namibia, which makes them incredibly moisturising. According to The Body Shop
website they are lightly infused with rose. In my opinion, the scent is there but luckily
it’s very light. I can’t imagine wearing anything too heavy scented on my lips.

The Body
Shop has built its name for being 100% cruelty free, as a result I think I’ll
go for their make-up range more in the future.

The retail
price is £10, completely worth the price.

The shade I
went for is 210, very pretty pastel pink, ideal for this spring, as pastel
colours are the perfect shades for spring 2014. It’s partially glossy and
because of the high pigmentation they create such an amazing pop up colour.


Pink lips
are pretty easy to style, as this colour is quite natural. It’s recommended not
to wear the same colour of the lipstick as the clothes. It looks fabulous with
purple, brown and black.
