Brand: The Body Shop
Range:  Color Crush Lipsticks
Shades: 101 (Red Siren), 105 (Coral Cutie), 205 (Passionate Pink), 210 (Sweetheart Pink), 215 (Innocent Pink), 240 (Damson in Distress), 330 (Spice Things Up)
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Body Shop Color Crush Lipsticks (which are replacing the Colourglide range) are 100% cruelty free and 100% vegetarian, formulated with nurturing cherry seed oil and Community Fair Trade marula oil.
  • Packed with pigment & moisture yet light in weight, they’re not only creamy and apply smoothly but the pigments also stain the lips. Also has a subtle rose scent
  • Available in 23 shades.  I swatched only 5 out of 7 shades as the last 2 pink shades on the right were too pale for my lip tone.
  • Verdict: Highly pigmented lipsticks often come with a “high grip” formula, but The Body Shop Color Crush Lipsticks are incredibly lightweight and a dream to apply, softening lips with moisture. I’m loving the colours and formula of this range more so than similar comparisons such as Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lip Color, as they’re vibrant without looking took punchy and make my lips look smooth and moisturised. Give it a go if you’re in the mood for colour!

Brand: Body Shop
Range: Colorglide Shine
Shade: Ruby Sparkle #12 (Limited Edition)
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Incredibly lightweight, combining the best elements of both lipstick and gloss.  So easy to apply that it’s practically fool proof.
  • Glides so smoothly with a moist shine look.
  • Normally available in 4 shades, 2 new limited edition shades have been added for the holiday season – Ruby Sparkle (pictured) and Rare Coral.
  • Contains Community Trade marula oil to moisturise and soften lips.
  • Ruby Sparkle is a sheer raspberry leans more towards a tint than lipstick.   It takes a close-up look to see the gold sparkles – they’re ultra fine which is the way I like my sparkles in lipstick to be.
  • As expected with sheer moist-finish lipsticks, it’s not long lasting nor does it fade into any stain.
  • Verdict: I recommend this for those who like subtle makeup, or if you want to ease your way into a red lip with a sheer tint.  Check it out at your nearest Body Shop counter to try it out! The moisturizing texture is so comforting on lips & you might just surprise yourself on how flattering the soft blue tones suit all skin tones.

RRP: $24.95 AUD

Available at Body Shop store & online for a limited time.

Brand: Body Shop
Range: Born Lippy Stick
Shade: Pomegranate
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Did you know Body Shop’s cult lip balm is also available in a stick format?  Born Lippy Stick is great for anyone that wants to add a tint of colour & shot of moisture on the go in a convenient & hygienic wind-up tube.
  • Key ingredients – Community Fair Trade marula oil & Community Fair Trade beeswax.
  • Also available in Lychee, Pink Berry, Strawberry & Plum
  • Pomegranate looks bright red in the tube, but the sheer red tint gives lips a natural healthy “my lips but better” flush of colour.
  • It does smells like sweetened pomegranate but is actually very subtle in taste.
  • Very moisturising, instantly softening lips however it doesn’t smooth lip lines.   The finish is a subtle low sheen.
  • The combination of oil & beeswax provides a bit of grip that works beautifully as a lipstick base.
  • Verdict: The marula oil lingers on the lips providing longer lasting moisture, and interestingly – despite containing beeswax – doesn’t leave you with a waxy film once the moisturising ingredients are fully absorbed.  I recommend this for loyal fans of Body Shop lip balms, especially younger girls as it’s a safe way of adding a flush of colour to your lips without breaking any rules about whether it’s an appropriate age to wear lip colour.  The lip motif & love hearts on the packaging gives instant street cred & is a great beauty staple for the school bag.

RRP: $10.95 AUD
