the body shop colour crush lipstick


You know what I'm really not feeling today? Typing.

You know what's really hard to do without typing? Blogging. Who knew? I guess I'll just have to suck it up though because I have two of the Body Shop's new Colour Crush lipsticks that just need to be shared. Read on!


'Our Colour Crush™ Lipstick collection marries our most intense, full-on colours with luscious moisture. Our secret? We’ve travelled the world to source high-quality pigments, which we’ve finely crushed then blended with a drop of nurturing cherry seed oil and coated with our finest, silkiest Community Fair Trade marula oil. The result is vivid, wow-worthy colour that glides onto lips and feels mega-comfortable to wear. What’s more, each lipstick has a sophisticated delicate floral rose fragrance. Divine!' -The Body Shop

These lipsticks are so smooth it's crazy- crazy good! These glide on beautifully and have great pigmentation. They're not fully pigmented with one swipe, but can be built up in two passes to almost opaque while still being lightweight on lips. You forget you're even wearing a lipstick as these are that light and comfortable on and they stay comfortable throughout wear- these never feel dry! You don't get a massively long wear time though- about 2-3 hours max, but it's all worth re-applying.

The shades that I have are both from the Pearlescent range- Mattes and Sparkly are also available- and while the overall formula is amazing there is a slight frostiness to the shades (one more than the other) that I'm not a fan of in #200 Peachy Pink. The frost factor does differ in both shades, but it is something to be aware of when choosing shades.



Peachy Pink is a light pink with just a hint of peach. The shade is frosty, and can emphasize lip lines and imperfections, which I have to admit I don't love, but I've been wearing this with a little bit of clear gloss and it does look really pretty.


Sweet Coral is a peachy coral shade. It too is a bit frosty/shimmery, but it's not as apparent as the other shade.

Overall, I love the formula of these as it's just so easy to slick on. Have you tried these yet? Will you be?
