AMW Reviews: The Body Shop High Shine Treatment in Golden Coral

Friday is finally here!  This week has been too long, I guess I am looking forward for the long weekend and an exciting trip!  Before the week ends, I will be talking about another lip product that I've tried because of it's moisturizing property and word "treatment" that comes with its name! 


TBS High Shine Treatment says ---
Hi-Shine Lip Treatment delivers a wash of pretty glossy colour to lips with precision and ease.  The high shine, skin-conditioning formula with Community Trade marula oil leaves lips looking irresistibly luscious.  And the squeezable tube with rounded chiseled applicator means it is quick and simple to apply - perfect for girls in a hurry. 

Pucker up with two delicious, luminous shades:
06 Party Pink
17 Golden Coral (limited edition)

AMW says ---
Pros
  • very moisturizing, even after removing it
  • one tube lasts forever
  • very smooth and easy to apply
  • applicator has smooth surface so easy to apply on lips

  • works really well on top of a lip color
  • company does not test on animals --- YAY!
Cons
  • if you're looking for loud colored lips, this is quite sheer
  • if you're not into sticky gloss, this has a bit of sticky consistency
  • fragrance is too much for me, I'm not a fan of peach scent (personal opinion)
Overall
If you are into lip gloss and don't mind the semi-sticky feel and strong fruity scent?  Go ahead.  This is a cheaper alternative for Lancome Juicy Tubes. 
I really like Golden Coral shade especially if I top it with a boring lip color because it livens the color  and creates a nice 3 dimensional shine and glimmer.

Tips
from makeup artist Chase Aston 
"Two fabulous, super glossy, ultra moisturizing, must-have lip shades for spring.  Fresh and flirty, easy to wear shades that can be worn alone for a sheer hint of tint, layered over Lip & Cheek Stain and Colour glide Lip Colour"

from AMW 
  • for a more precise application, apply using a lip brush
  • if you're applying this straight from the tube applicator to your lips, wipe regularly before closing the cap
  • always remember to twist the cap well, having this messed up inside your bag is a big nuisance
  • top this with your favorite lip color for a more intense color with high shine
  • this gloss is perfect for girls with thin lips, apply this on the center of your lips then gently spread outward directly from tube or lip brush
Will I repurchase?
No, one tube is enough.  And the scent makes me dizzy!

Where to purchase and how much?
At local Body Shop for Php595.00 (approx $13.00)

Have you tried this lip treatment?  Do you like it?
Before I end this post, I want to congratulate dear blogger friends Shen and Tara for winning the Promod Contest last night!!!  I will report about the event as soon as I can!!! It was such a fun event!  

Have a wonderful weekend!
Your resident AMW is off for a nice relaxation... I HOPE!  :D



Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  7. I have a hard time with sticky glosses myself, but willing to try it not to pay the Lancome prices! Happy to hear about the moisturizing though.
