Review: Body Shop Sheer Lip Shine

Friday, 17 December 2010

Hey everyone. How are you all? Can you believe it's only just over a week until Christmas! I've had this review saved as a draft for ages, I just kept forgetting to post it! :/

Shade: Sheer Pink

What they say: (From A beautiful range of luxurious moisturizing lipsticks that offer sheer colour coverage with a high shine finish and a sweet scent on application.

Price: £5


What I think: I bought this in the Body Shop sale a while back and I've been wearing it pretty much every day since I got it.

It's a pretty, slightly glossy pink colour, which looks extremely natural on the lips due to how sheer the lipstick is. It can be built up to give a more intense colour. The lipstick applies easily and is extremely moisturising - One day I left my Nivea lipbalm at home and used this to keep my lips moisturised throughout the day. Therefore, I'd call it tinted lip balm rather than a lipstick. It has a slightly fruity fragrance, which is rather pleasant. I also really like the packaging, it looks so sleek and elegant.

The main disadvantage is that the staying power of this lipstick isn't very long, only a couple of hours max. When the lipstick is full price (£9), I would say that it's expensive for a high-street make-up brand.

I would definitely recommend this product if you like a sheer and moisturising wash of colour on the lips. However, I don't know if they still sell this product anymore. I looked on the Body Shop website and couldn't find this particular product anymore, but I think the Delipscious Sheer Lipsticks are the new alternatives.

Do you like sheer lip colours?

Thank you for reading. xoxo, Joy


  1. Looks like a nice warm pinkish colour.. I actually like sheer lipsticks. They blend more easily :)

  2. @Kirsty B - Thanks, it's a really pretty wash of colour, especially for when you can't be bothered with more opaque lipsticks. xx

    @Lene - I like sheer lipsticks too, they're a lot lower maintenance than more opaque ones :) xx
