The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick Review – The Right Mauves

(Last Updated On: July 17, 2018)

Hola my lovely ladies! Another day, I was love struck by the beautiful lipsticks from The Body Shop. I ended up buying The Body Shop Colour Crush lipstick in the shade 235 – The Right Mauves. Not to forget, this is my first lipstick purchase from The Body Shop. First impression -Luscious pinkish purple shade which provides a stunning pop of colour. It is infused with a subtle rose scent. Now, let’s checkout the detailed review!

Product Name: The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick – 235 The Right Mauves

Price and Quantity: Purchased on sale at INR 795 or $6.25 for 3.5 g.

Shelf Life: 3 years from the date of manufacturing.

Availability: I bought this Body Shop lipstick on sale at 30% off. You can purchase it online as well as offline.

Packing and Appearance: All The Body Shop Colour Crush lipsticks come in a plastic sealed foil containing cylindrical silver case with color coded attractive cap. At the first glance, lipstick seems very charming and appealing.

I am already a huge pink lover. The details of the shade is at the bottom of the case. The pink cap is see-through but I could hardly make out the color. Hence, I prefer to open the cap for color shade. I love the shiny silver case which can be easily seen from my pile of lipsticks.

Smell: The product has beautiful rose smell lasting 45 minutes to 1 hour. The smell is very refreshing and mild which lingers on to you long enough to give a puff of rose petals.

My Experience: I completely adore the silver-pink color combination which touches the feminine side. As I opened the plastic covering of the lipstick, I noticed The body shop icon on the pink cap.

The cap is nicely fitted to the silver case. I opened the cap and twisted the silver case to get the gorgeous lipstick out. It has a very beautiful pinkish purple shade with small glittering granules. When I applied one coat of the lipstick on my lips, I was very impressed with the look.

Due to oily texture, this lipstick glides very smoothly giving shimmer effect. The bold, fantastic color touches my heart and I was very happy spending bucks on it!

It is highly pigmented and all cracks in my lips are filled at one go. It also works as a lip balm giving great moisturization in dry weather. It has long wear and non-drying properties.

This color is fairly versatile giving shiny or matte finish. I blend this shade with red to get deep wine color. It’s everyday wearable lipstick for me now. You can experiment according to your requirement!

Do I recommend?

The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipsticks deserve a spot in your makeup stash. You can go for the shade you like.

Overall Summary: It is very versatile and daily wearable giving proper hydration to lips. It is non-drying and long lasting properties is a catch. The shimmery effect solves dual need of lipstick as well as lip balm. It has superb packing and is travel friendly. A must buy for those who love to be in trends always.

  1. I don’t like my lipcolours to have silvery sheen on them. So, I might not opt for this one but it looks really good on you. Plus, the review is very informative. So, thumbs up from me 🙂

    1. Even I was bit hesitant earlier to buy this shade but after applying the silver sheen brightens the face. ❤❤

  2. Maine abhi tak TBS ki lipsticks use nahi ki hain, ye accha shade dikh raha hai ????
    Offer aata hai to main dekhti hu ki buy karu, kyunki aise to bahut costly hain ye ????

    1. This is my second buy from TBS and their lipstick always amazes . A bit pricey but worth having.☝☝
