The Body Shop – Colour Crush Lipstick Review (in Berry in Love 320)


I promise I’m nearly at the end of the reviews from my TBS haul! I’m building up my lipstick collection at the moment and as soon as I heard The Body Shop had launched a new one I had to give it a go!

I decided to go for a colour I didn’t already have so opted for Berry in Love which is a lovely deep pink shade with a touch of coral. It’s somewhere between a pink and red and it’s utterly perfect for every day wear. The colour comes out really well and I just can’t get a photo that does it justice. It is wonderfully pigmented and adds a touch of glamour to any look.

It also has a light rose scent which is very elegant and makes the task of applying the lipstick that bit more pleasant It’s also highly moisturising and leaves my lips feeling super soft and well cared for.

It lasts quite well for a lipstick that has a soft sheen finish, I usually find that the lipsticks that hydrate best last least, but this one lasts a good few hours and I don’t mind reapplying every so often.

I am definitely going to try some other colours so I’ll let you know if the others live up to this one!

NYC Smooch Proof Lip Stain Review

Today’s review is brought to us by our lovely Donna on the panel. This is one her current favourite products, it’s the NYC Smooch proof Lip stain in Unstoppable Red.

First up how easy is it to apply? It’s more of a felt tip so it’s really easy to control. You simply line you lips as normal, you could even skip that step with this product if you’re short on time. Then you colour in your lips with the lip stain. For an extra bit of glamour smooth on a bit of clear gloss and you’re ready to go.

Donna loves to have a wow-factor about her look and this really helps. It’s also so quick to use it can be in your everyday kit rather than kept for special occasions.

It also lasted really well, as it says in the name it is a stain so it has super-staying-power. It didn’t dry her lips out and stayed looking matte and pretty all day.
