Body Shop Sheer Lipstick: '03 Sheer Watermelon'

Wednesday, July 11, 2012

I bought this product in the recent body shop sale and I did mainly buy it as it was only £2! But I do quite like this lip product. There was only one shade to choose from, as this product was a sale item, and the shade is ’03 sheer watermelon’ which sounds nice but I don’t really like orangey shades for lip colour. Nevertheless this shade is really nice, it is an orange/coral colour which has a lot of fine shimmer in it which looks like a metallic sheen on the lips – so if you use too much you could end up looking like a 80’s throw back which is not a good look (unless you are going to a fancy dress or Halloween party). The lip colour glides onto the lips really nicely and it sherbet, mixed with that old fashion cosmetic scent. I think this shade is really nice but I think it would look gorgeous on individuals with tanned or olive skin tones. It applies really nicely, it is fairly pigmented (so the name sheer lip colour is not very accurate) and it feels nice on the lips; it does not feel heavy or gritty. The longevity is not fantastic and it does transfer; this product lasts for about six hours on me if I don’t eat in that time. But with eating/drinking this product lasts for about three hours at the most. Also when the colour has faded the shimmer does stay on the lips to an extent. Overall, I like this product but I would only buy it if it was on sale. A bargain at £2 but it is not amazing! 3/5 stars for this lip colour.
