The Body Shop’s Color Crush line has been well, crushing it for me this summer! I am all over the Color Crush eye shadows and now I am all over the Color Crush Shine Lipsticks ($13.00 CDN) that come in 10 shades, each providing a hint of tint and a healthy shine. The shade I have today in Sunset Romance is the same one I wore in my last Color Crush review and I have been loving how it almost makes my whole face glow from within.
Final Verdict: I don’t know if this can really be classified as a “lipstick” because it really is only in physical appearance that it is. The sheer wash of colour is more like a tint and maybe it’s more pigmented in some of the darker colours, but with Sunset Romance, I did need to go back and forth a few times to achieve the colour you see above. This is a very moisturizing lipstick with the feel of a thick lip balm and will last 2-3 hours with “normal” lip activity (no massive making out!). There is a subtle rose scent to this that I didn’t really like, but it was not enough to bother me while on the lips. Overall, I love how healthy and shiny my lips look and would highly consider getting some a few more in the more dramatic colours for Fall.
