The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick Review

How pretty are these to look at? Before we get into anything, let's take a moment to appreciate that. *silence* Okay, so these were actually samples that were sent to me early last year when I was working for the Body Shop at Home (BSAH). Their lovely packaging has brightened up my make up table for quite a while now, so I thought it's definitely time they had their moment on here. 

I'm a really big fan of The Body Shop's make up range so I was really excited to try these lipsticks. Fortunately, I was sent a good range of colours so I could really get an idea of the range. Admittedly, some of these shades aren't for my skin tone but I instantly knew that the bold 'Red Siren' and the understated 'Hot Date' were going to be my favourites. One thing I'd say, having seen the full colour range in the shop, is that there's definitely a shade to suit everyone

When it came to trying these out, the formula was a big surprise. It was far lighter than I'd expect from a lipstick and probably less than I'd expect from a lip butter too. It's actually pretty similar to the consistency of Vaseline, oddly enough. The colour applies really well, but this coupled with the almost greasy consistency, is not a good combination. I found it really difficult to keep this in place, and found myself constantly checking the mirror. It wasn't in vain either, because the majority of the time I'd find it had smudged down my face. Slightly embarrassing...

As much as I love the colours and packaging, the formula has definitely lost my vote. I tried different ways to make these work, but it seems it's a lost cause. In my opinion, there's a lot of work to be done to justify that £10 price tag. For now, they'll remain a pretty decoration on my dressing table.

Have you tried any of these before? What did you think?

  1. I LOVE the colours, but I recently bought a really nice coral colour and it was so greasy like you said I feel paranoid it's going everywhere- such a shame, I love the variety too xxx
