The Body Shop Ruby Sparkle Lipstick Review, Swatches & FOTD


The Body Shop Ruby Sparkle Lipstick

Hi girls,

This is my first contribution at Wise She & I am really excited about it. Let me introduce myself, I am Vrinda Aghi and I am a lawyer, but my passion for beauty, fitness and fashion is ever evolving. I love learning from you all beauties and it helps me get better πŸ™‚

So my love for lipsticks is growing. I recently got a lipstick from body shop. I was excited to wear it, so kept waiting to get home and try it on. I feel lipsticks suit me more than glosses. I am now addicted to use lipstick brushes while applying lipsticks, which I got for my mom as well. Lip brushes help you get the right amount and given even application.

My take on The Body Shop Ruby Sparkle Lipstick:

I love reds and corals, it compliments my skin tone a lot. I think this red is my third red now. I have a red lip liner too. I apply this lipstick using my lip brush. I prep my lips with some lip balm, and then I fill my lips with this color. The lipstick has some shimmer in it. I think it is perfect for the winters and upcoming festive occasions.

I keep my eyes simple, if I use a bold lip color. It keeps the whole look subtle. This is my first body shop make up item. And I am loving it. There is a mild fragrance, and it has good staying power. However, one thing I would like to add that it is more like a lip tint, since lipsticks have deeper pigmentation.

The packing is simple, in a cylindrical holder, the holder does not specify the shade name, but I saw on the website that number 12 is ruby sparkle. I think it causes a little dryness on my lips, but gives a matte finish, however you may notice that initially it does give a look of moist shiny lips, but in due course becomes dry. The glitter may be a problem for some, but I think it is perfect for this festive season.

What I like about The Body Shop Ruby Sparkle Lipstick:

  • Easy to apply,
  • Good staying power, for about 5-6 hours without eating and less if you sip drinks,
  • Easily available,
  • Four shades available,
  • Very good quality,
  • This particular shade is my perfect red.
  • Add glow to the complexion,
  • Should suit wheatish to fair complexions.

What I do not like about The Body Shop Ruby Sparkle Lipstick:

  • Expensive,
  • Needs moisturizing beneath, otherwise can cause dryness or settling between line (since I have dry lips)
  • More like lip tint, since it has lesser color pigments.

Rating 4.5/5

Will I repurchase the Body Shop lipstick?

I think, I like this particular shade, donÒ€ℒt know how other shades will suit me, but yes, this shade I will repurchase.

Thank you all for reading my review.
