If you’ve been reading Writing Whimsy for awhile then you’ll understand why I was scared when The Body Shop Colour Crush Shine Lipstick in Sunset Romance* showed up in my mailbox. It looks BRIGHT. Luckily, the Colour Crush Shine Lipstick line is actually intended to provide a sheer wash of colour in a moisturizing formula, a claim it definitely meets.
The Body Shop Colour Crush Shine Lipstick in Sunset Romance is a coral shade that adds just a hint of colour to the lips. It has a light rose scent, but no taste, and it really just glides on the lips. It feels like wearing lip balm, but a very moisturizing lip balm, and the wear is similar. For me this is the kind of lipstick that actually improves the appearance of my lips, and it is very easy to reapply throughout the day.
In addition to the The Body Shop Colour Crush Shine Lipstick in Sunset Romance there are nine other shades, and now that I know how nice they feel and look, I am definitely not scared anymore—I want them all!
