The Body Shop Delipscious Sheer Lip Colour

The Body Shop Sheer Lip Shine is a cream finish, soft lipstick. The lipstick itself is easy to apply (no dragging, pulling or pressing required). I bought no. 7. It is a pretty, pale pink with orange tones. However, it does not deliver intense colour. You need to apply at least 2 to 3 coats of it for the colour to show especially if you have dark lips like I do. This is a very beautiful, discreet, nude colour for you if your lips aren’t pigmented and you’re a fair to medium-dark skin tone.

I did not like the way it felt on my lips: it was rather cakey and heavy and did not last long at all (it was nearly all gone after 1 glass of water). It felt greasy and when I did a swatch of it on paper for this blog post, I saw that after a few minutes it actually leaked more oil than my lip balm swatch. The colour coverage was uneven. I did not care for the scent of the lipstick and I found that it has a bitter taste that kind of spreads into your mouth after a while. Overall, I was not too pleased with this product. I have bought better lipsticks at lower prices.

The packaging is very pretty. It’s a silver tube with a frosted design of fruits on the bottom half. The lettering on the tube is in a bright pink. Basically, a nice, girly look.
