Sweeten Up Your Lips For Summer With The Body Shop

It wouldn’t be summer without a pop of colour on our lips, would it?

But nothing too heavy. I prefer a wash of buildable colour personally, and I’ve found the perfect lipsticks and glosses to fit the bill. Recently, I rekindled my love for The Body Shop having lost interest many moons since. I revisited my local store a couple of months ago, making a beeline the Honey Bronze Drops Of Sun which I absolutely love. I ventured in again last Sunday to browse the lip products as I was looking for a summer pinks and corals. When I saw the Colour Crush lipsticks, I had to have them, the colours were exactly what I was looking for, so I popped them in my basket and continued browsing.

When The Body Shop has a clearance…they have a clearance, and always fabulous bargains to be had. My lipsticks were originally £10 each but reduced to £2 (Yes, you read that correctly, £2 each), in shades 16 (pink) and 215 (coral). The Body Shop claim “a slick of their creamy, moisturising lipstick, delivers a pop of high dose colour. With a subtle rose scent and Community Trade marula oil to help hydrate”.  I can’t say the rose scent hit me, and in all honesty, wouldn’t have realised had I not known as it is indeed subtle. I found the formula hydrating on the lips and actually stayed put a little longer than you might expect.

“I love a bargain and rarely pay full price for anything if I can help it, so two lipsticks worth £20 reduced to £4 is too good to miss”



Next, the Shine Lip Liquids in shades Orange Lollypop and Strawberry Bon Bon caught my eye, the pink and coral tones are a perfect match for layering over the lipsticks for a different look. Described as “a lasting high-shine with a weightless, non-sticky formula” these lip glosses deliver. I prefer a non-sticky gloss and since these have a “liquid” consistency they work really well for me.

I also picked up a foundation from the Fresh Nude range (which I will write about in a future post). There was a buy two get one free offer running, so I had the second gloss free and left a happy girl.

“If you haven’t been into The Body Shop lately it’s really worth having a browse. The assistants are always cheerful and happy to help, especially if like me you have endless questions!”

As well as all the usual bath and body products we know of old, you might just be surprised at the makeup ranges. Next on my shopping list are Drops Of Glow.

What about you, have you purchased any Body Shop makeup or lip products recently? Which are your favourites?

    I’m in love with coral shades for summer! I’m just the same as you, I love a wash of colour, but nothing too big and bold. You’ve also got to love a bargain, I mean £10 to £2 is amazing!! The colours you picked are gorgeous, and now I want a trip to my local Body Shop to see if I can spot any good bargains. Love the photography as usual Samantha!

      I agree, Coral is a summer must-have! I couldn’t believe the price either- literally giving them away. I picked up an under eye concealer for £1 reduced from £10 too. You definitely need to have a look! Thanks lovely x
