THE BODY SHOP MATTE LIP LIQUID REVIEW

Packaging: Liquid lipsticks come in a tube form with a matte screw cap bearing a wand attached to it on the inside. The doe applicator is easy to use and the product is travel friendly.

Texture: The lipsticks are very creamy and glides on the lips like a gloss would but settles into a matte finish with velvety feel.

Shade: There are a total of 12 shades in the range and here is a summary on each-

Paris Peony: This is a proper pink shade, not brighter or lighter, just perfectly pink. Should suit all skin tones.

Crete Carnation: This is a beautiful nude shade with a touch of pink to it. Should suit all skin tones.

Sydney Amaryllis: This is a reddish-orange shade which looks almost red on the lips.

Nairobi Camellia: This is a light mauve-pink shade and is perfect for every day use. Will suit all skin tones.

Taipei Orchid: This is a very light pink or barbie pink and might look frosty on darker or dusky skin tones. Will look beautiful on fairer and medium skin tones; i love this shade!

Cali Gerbera: This is a light neon-orange shade which I seem to love too. Would not suit darker skin tones but will go well with fair to medium skin tones.

Goa Magnolia: This is a beautiful purple shade which I absolutely love and is my favorite from the range. It looks pure deep purple and would suit almost any skin tone. Great for occasions as well as for usual outings.

Tokyo Lotus: This is a neon pink shade and looks beautiful on fair to medium skin tones. Might look too bright on dusky or darker skin tones.

Tahiti Hibiscus: This shade is a perfect red even though it looks deep maroon in the tube. Would go well with all skin tones.

Sicily Iris: This is a dark and deep burgundy shade just like Mac ariana grande lipstick.

Windsor Rose: This is a pure nude shade with no pink undertones. Looks as if you have not applied anything on your lips (fair and medium skin tones) making them look natural and flawless. Might look frosty on darker and dusky skin tones.

Mauritius Dahlia: This too is a dark burgundy shade but a bit lighter than that ‘Sicily Iris’ and will suit fair-medium skin tones.

Fragrance: The liquid lipsticks have a pleasant sweet smell which i love.

How I use and staying power: To use, just swipe the wand multiple times on the lips and you are done! Layer if needed.

The lipsticks, if you see, are quite similar to Miss Claire or Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams but when you use, you realize they are not the same! It goes on very smooth and glides like a gloss on the lips. The creamy texture takes approx 3-4 minutes to settle into a matte finish with velvety feel completely. It feels really comfortable on the lips and is not drying at all. Lips feel moisturized even with the matte layer of lipstick! It transfers only if you rub it hard or eat anything oily. Otherwise, it stays as-it-is all day long. If you eat heavy meals, it does fade from the center but looks good; you can always reapply if you want a pigmented stain. Even if the lipsticks transfer the least, they still are easy to remove with a wet cloth or with a makeup remover. Overall these lipsticks are great and I love them!

PROS:

  • Feel comfortable on the lips
