Hi All,

The Body Shop is my usual haunt for body butter, lotions, soaps and lately face masks too. Especially stuff from the Vit E range like the VitE Moisturizer, their toner, etc. I’m sure this must hold true for a lot of you as well. For some odd reason I’ve never been attracted to their makeup section at all. That is..until A happened to swatch and review some of the lipsticks. I did express my desire…actually my greed to own one to A and she did warn me about their sad staying power. But ofcourse makeup greed knows no boundary and here I am with a review on a lipstick from their Colorglide collection in Pink Ginger.

  • Color: This shade is a lovely raspberry shade and reminds me flowers somehow. It does have a glossy finish but without any shimmer.
  • Price: INR 600 for 4gm
  • Coverage & Pigmentation: This is a full coverage lipstick and covers any pigmentation on my lips. A single swipe is a bit sheer but 2 swipes does the trick for a full on creamy application.

  • Texture: This lipstick has a satin finish and leaves a glossy finish which I prefer to matte. It’s non-sticky too and doesn’t feel icky when applied.
  • Staying Power: This stays for about 2.503hrs on my lips which is very very less. And if I eat something then it gets almost totally wiped off and leaves a very light berry tint on my lips.

I have a 50-50 opinion about this lipstick. I love how this color looks on me..It instantly brightens up my face. I like wearing this shade as a lip tint as well. I just   use my fingers to dab the color onto my lips properly and just this much is enough to get a gorgeous berry stain on my lips. Its the perfect wash of color for me.

What I detest is that it dries out my lips by the end of the day. I can tolerate the sad staying power (since I love reapplying every 2hrs or so) but can’t condone dry lips. When I apply this on exfoliated lips in the morning it looks perfect. But by the time I reach home, my lips are dry and flaky again. So I would not recommend this lippy to anyone with dry lips. The other would love this ofcourse.
