AMW Reviews: The Body Shop Colorglide Shine Lip Color

Hey hey!  Ho Ho!  Sending positive vibes to all readers!
Today, I will be talking about a lipstick from a  brand I love but never get to try their lipstick until now --- The Body Shop Colorglide Shine Lip Color.

Okay, I have to be honest, I actually searched online and found the name of this lipstick as I always call this my TBS lipstick!  (Only one out of the bunch, and I don't mind getting more!)

The Body Shop says ---
A range of rich and luxurious, moisturizing lipsticks that offer long-lasting, intense color coverage while helping to condition the lips. Dermatologically tested.

Ingredients:  Hydrogenated Polyisobutene (Emollient), Polybutene (Binder), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (Emollient), Dipentaerythrityl Tetrahydroxystearate/Tetraisostearate (Skin Conditioning Agent - Occlusive), Polyethylene (Opacifier), Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil (Skin Conditioning Agent), Mica (Opacifier), Ricinus Communis Seed Oil (Emollient), Cera Microcristallina (Stabiliser/Emollient), Calcium Sodium Borosilicate (Bulking Agent), Cera Alba (Emulsifier/Emollient), Barium Sulfate (Opacifier), Parfum (Fragrance), Tocopherol (Antioxidant), Talc (Absorbent/Bulking Agent), Tin Oxide (Opacifying Agent), Benzyl Salicylate (Fragrance Ingredient), Limonene (Fragrance Ingredient). [+/- CI 77891 (Colorant), CI 77491 (Colour), CI 15850 (Colorant), CI 77492 (Colour), CI 77499 (Colour), CI 42090 (Colour)].

AMW says ---
  • Has a mild scent.
  • Nice packaging.
  • Applies smoothly even without lip balm underneath.
  • Doesn't dry out my lips.
  • Gives a lovely shine.
  • Smooth in texture..
  • The Body Shop doesn't test on animals.

  • Only available in limited number of shades (4).
  • If you are not a fan of high shimmer/shine, this lipstick isn't for you.
  • Stays 3-4 hours.

A smooth, creamy textured sheer lipstick that gives a high shine without drying the lips.

  • Take this lipstick with you as re-application is needed midday.
  • Apply directly from tube if you plan to use this on your own.  Makeup artists should always use a separate lip brush for hygiene.
  • Wait for sales, I always see The Body Shop having promotions and sales once in awhile.
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
The shade 03 Pink Flash works for fair to medium skin.

Where to purchase and how much?
 At local The Body Shop stores for Php695.00 (approx $17.37).  Like The Body Shop Philippines on Facebook for more product details and sale events.


Sealed upon purchase

I searched The Body Shop website and found 03 named as Pink Flash.

03 Pink flash is a mid-tone pink color with a frosty finish.

Top: Bare Lips
Bottom: Applied a 2 layers (each lip) of 
TBS Colorglide Shine Lip Color in 03 Pink Flash

As seen on photo, my uber dry lips didn't crack or the lipstick didn't settle into my dry lip lines!  It gives a high shine but never enhances my dry lips!  The color works so well on my skin tone.

Have you tried any TBS lip products? This is my first lipstick (not considering The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Tint) and I'm happy to say, it's a good experience and I do not mind repurchasing another shade!
