The Body Shop Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Saturday, November 12, 2016
As well as Avon, Rimmel and Natural Collection, The Body Shop cosmetics were some of the first that I tried when I was a teenager and I've loved their products ever since. The first eyeshadow product I bought was one of the iconic shimmer cubes which I used constantly so I was very excited when a lovely package arrived including some festive goodies and these on trend matte liquid lipsticks.

There are so many shades to choose from but I was sent three gorgeous picks; *The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid (£6) are creamy liquid lipsticks that claim to dry down to a lightweight, matte finish that is long lasting - it sounds like a perfect product for me as I'm not a fan of glossy finishes and I am all for long lasting lip products!

The first shade is Tahiti Hibiscus which in the tube looks like a deep purple pink but on the lips it's much brighter (it's the middle tube in the first photo). I love the colour in the tube and you can get that when you pack on a tonne of product but when one thin coat on the lips, it's looks like a vivid berry, purple tint. It looks more red in the photo but in 'real life' it's more purple/electric pink - it's surprisingly difficult to photograph the colour as it actually is! It's creamy and applies smoothly but the applicator isn't super precise so it can take a while to apply very neatly. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.

Next up is definitely my favourite shade from the three I was able to try and it's Sydney Amaryllis which is a bright, almost coral red - the photograph above shows it really well. Again, it's creamy and smooth on the lips which feels light and comfortable but it means that it isn't the easily to apply as it can smudge but when it sets it lasts pretty well on me. This shade would be perfect for the upcoming christmas party season! The only issue is that as the shade is quite warm/orange toned, on my skin/lips anyway, it isn't the most flattering when it comes to my teeth; however the longevity of this shade is incredible, it lasts all day even through eating! Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.

Lastly, the boldest shade of the three and the one that's least like any of the others in my collection. The Sicily Iris shade is just gorgeous, it's perfect for this time of the year and I love it; however the darker the shade, the more likely I am to make a mistake and screw up the application and with darker shades there's no where to hide! The application takes the longest to get it neat but that's the same for all dark, bold shades but sadly it's a little patchy on me which you can see in the photo above - I still love it though. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.

Overall, I love the shades I was kindly with my favourite being Sydney Amaryllis as it makes my complexion look radiant and brighter, if that makes sense! The formula is creamy, smooth and very comfortable on the lips but it can lead to messy application if you aren't careful. There are a couple of minor issues but for the really low price of £6, they are well worth trying! The longevity is AMAZING! I definitely need to pick up the Windsor Rose shade now!

Have you tried any of makeup from The Body Shop? What do you think of these shades?

    1. It is a bit patchy but I think with a lip scrub and balm it would be better x
