My Picks of The New Body Shop Colour Crush Lipsticks–swatches!

The Body Shop recently re-launched their lipstick range with 25 gorgeous new ‘Colour Crush’ lippies which had me swooning from the get go.  I have full swatches coming up from the whole range, but for now, I thought I’d pick out my favourites to show you today!

the body shop lippies

#220 Dare To Bare – A very pale, almost grey nude.  I feel like this is only a step darker than my natural skin colour and so it looks incredible with smokey eyes, but not so great otherwise.  I think this will be a favourite for many!

#110 Coral Blush – This is the shade I was instantly attracted to for it’s peachy undertones and nude base.  Exactly the type of everyday lip colour I normally wear.

#210 Sweetheart Pink – I can’t tell you the last time I wore a bright pink lippie – it’s a rare occurrence but I absolutely adore this pale Barbie pink.  Again, it won’t be for everyone as it is ridiculously pale but on good skin days I’ll definitely be whipping this out.

#105 Coral Cutie – This has already been feautred on my blog as it’s probably my favourite of the bunch – a bright orange based red which is super on trend at the moment!

#205 Passionate Pink – Another pink, this time a darker, blue toned pink which is on the verge of being almost neon.  Gorgeous bright shade for summer!

#115 Enraptured Red – The most perfect postbox red – one slick of this intensely pigmented lippie and you’ll have a pout like Marilyn!

#335 Hot Date – I chose this shade out as I thought it was endearing; a muted purple shade which will be so hot come autumn.  I like to think of this as colour with a mature twist.

#240 Damson in Distress – I have a thing for dark, purple lipsticks at the moment.  I think they are incredibly sexy and alluring and this one compliments my pale skin perfectly.  It’s love!

What I think:  These lipsticks are incredibly pigmented, soft and creamy; my perfect lipstick combination.  I really love the shades available and think the quality of them is really high.  These retail at £10 each which is slightly above your regular high street lippie, but their colour pay-off alone makes up for it.  One thing I’m not too keen on is the smell – it does put me off a little but not enough to not wear them.

Have you had a peak at the new Body Shop lippies?  Which of the above catches your eye?

  2. I always overlook The Body Shop for makeup, although I do like their brushes. I really like 'Dare to Bare', but I always going for nude lips!

  8. Will certainly be swatching #220 and #110 in my local Body Shop. I think coral blush would look beautiful under No 7 bb lips in the shade blush coral!

    I've done a review on my blog of the No 7 bb lips. Would love it if you could check it out sometime! http://uniquebeautysecrets.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/beauty-review-no-7-bb-lips-beauty-balms.html?m=1

  15. They are a great shade range of lipsticks! I have 110 coral blush as well, its a lovely colour for everyday wear. There is an amazing magenta pink that I can't remember the name of, but its beautiful to wear! The paler nude shades don't have the best staying power but the brights have a really pigmented colour that lasts all day. I've been wearing a different one each day at work!

  16. I like Hot Date a lot. I'm like Belle, I forget Body Shop has makeup. I like how you do your swatches- you look approachable and not so posed (I see so much posing on blogs, shoot, I do it too)...your blog is always very real!

  17. I love #205 Passionate Pink and #335 Hot Date, gorgeous shades! I've never actually tried any of the Body Shop Makeup but I've heard so many good things about it. I love all the chooses you made, something for every occasion.

  28. I tried them in store and thought the colour were so pretty! But I do agree, the smell is really off putting, and I was wondering if it was the actual product or just the tester I tried! Just for this I didn't get it, I don't mind other products to have a so so smell, but as lips are just under the nose, cant affored to have something that smelly there!

  29. I love the look of 110 and 105. I'm looking at buying Mac Lady Danger, but 110 looks like it might be nice instead! Don't suppose you have them both to do a compare?

  48. I have a newfound love and respect for The Body Shop, I swear. I recently got myself some of their shea products and I am obsessed! Check out my blog: omgtmijiz.tumblr.com

  49. I have been put off by the smell, and was suspecting if I had somehow gotten myself a flawed product. Definitely reassuring to hear that the smell is off-putting by other users! However, got to admit their formula is rather moisturizing, and application was smooth!
