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!
