Product Review: The Body Shop Sheer Lip Shine

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: The Body Shop
Name: Sheer Lip Shine
Size: 2.1 g / 0.07 oz
Price: $14.50 CAD

Shade Tried: 01 Sheer Pink

Although I've used many products from The Body Shop line before, I've never tried their cosmetics. So the last time I was in The Body Shop I picked up a lip gloss to try.

The Body Shop Sheer Lip Shines are "a beautiful range of luxurious moisturizing lipsticks that offer sheer colour coverage with a high shine finish and a sweet scent on application." (from The Body Shop web site)

To Purr About:
- very soft, moisturizing formula just glides on the lips easily
- colour is sheer (although I tried a light colour, so I'm not sure how sheer the darker shades are)
- light, sweet fragrance
- nice glossy shine
- formula isn't thick and is great for summer

Claws Out:
- light formula disappears off the lips pretty quickly

Final Comments:
Considering the lipstick doesn't last very long and needs to be re-applied quite often, I've been going through this lipstick pretty quickly. So for me, $14.50 is a lot to pay for a lipgloss, but it's really nice. And it's available in 8 really pretty shades, so I am tempted to go back and try a few others (like Strawberry and Sheer Ruby.

Rating (out of 5):

I've only ever tried The Body Shop's Tinted Glow Enhancer and I just love it. I use it everyday mixed with my foundation for a dewy natural glow. :)

i've notice that many body shop stores around the GTA are renovating. perhaps they are upping their look to compete with stores like sephora.
