Review : The Body Shop Colour Glide in Clover Pink (06)

The body shop colour glide lipstick review 1

I have a penchant for neutrals. To be more specific neutral lipsticks. Sure there are lip stains, tints, cremes and glosses but if I want something neutral it has to be a lipstick.

I decided to "borrow" and test my mom's The Body Shop lipstick in Clover Pink 06 after seeing it on her one day and asking her about it. The first time I tried it though I was immediately put off by the strong smell coming from the tube. The scent also lingered on my lips and tasted the way it smelled — waxy.

But the color was gorgeous. It was a very wearable peachy mid brown color and very opaque [reminded me a little of Uber Beige from Bobbi Brown]. Knowing my scaly lips I thought it would make it more visible when I tried it sans a balm but the dryness wasn't obvious at all. Not only that I think it even quenched my parched lips a little. [I imagine the lighter colors in this line would be harder to pull off without prepping the lips.]

I wouldn't say outright that this was very moisturizing but it didn't dry out my lips and it was very comfortable to wear throughout the day.

It's a little draggy but the finish, wearability and color are tops for me. The only con I can think of is the smell. I just cannot get over it. I'd recommend for you guys to try it out at their stores but I think they're phasing this out because I can't find them anymore on the PH website. But I did find it at their main site.


PS. I love The Body Shops' values. They include defending human rights, setting proper working conditions and reducing CO2 emissions apart from being cruelty free!

PPS. Have you tried this line? What do you think of the smell? I might just be really sensitive to these things especially since it's on my mouth but what about you?
