AMW Reviews: The Body Shop Lipstick Colour Crush in Coral Kiss

 The Body Shop is a to-go-to brand when it comes to skincare and cosmetics, we all know that by now!  But sometimes, we get swayed by other brands who can offer not only quality products but they are also housed in very cute packaging!  Who can say no to that?

Thankfully, The Body Shop came up with their new lipstick line called Colour Crush, and they may not be housed in cutesy-patootsie packaging, but, they definitely leveled up as I find these more classy to look at!

Check out The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipsticks!

Definitely not boring at all and the cap is the same shade as the lipstick itself!

I got the shade Coral Kiss which fits my personality perfectly!  The shade is toned down, perfect for daily use yet it can uplift my mood as this color is perfect for girls with warm skin tone (me!)

AMW says ---
  • Better Packaging as compared to their old lipsticks.
  • Glides on lips easily.
  • Pigmentation is good.
  • Formulation is creamy.
  •  The shade Coral Kiss lasts around 2-3 hours only.  The darker shades may last longer.
  • Minimal scent.
  • May still lack moisture factor for girls with extremely DRY lips.
Coral Kiss is a very natural medium pink brown shade. 

  •  Exfoliation is needed prior to any lipstick application.
  • Try not to use lip balm underneath as it will make your lips flake even more.
  • Apply a clear gloss on top to create fuller-looking lips.
  • For a more defined look, use a natural colored lip liner.
Will I repurchase?
Other shades, YES

To whom do I recommend this to?
Girls who like a very natural looking lips.  The shade works for warmer skin tone.

Where to purchase and how much?
Available at local TBS stores for Php695.00 (approx $15.80).
