The Body Shop Colourglide Shine Lip Colour in Pink Flash

Hello beautiful people!!

Do you like pink lipsticks? 
Though I'm more of a red lips kind of girl, I get to have fun using pinks too! Here's one that I got as a Christmas gift from The Body Shop last December.

The Heart Inside


Our Community Fair Trade marula oil comes from the Eudafano Women’s Co-operative in Namibia. Marula fruits are hand-selected, the nuts are extracted and dried in the sun. The kernels are cold-pressed to release the oil. By setting up their own factory, the 5,000 women members have gained entrepreneurial skills and, they tell us, a newfound self-esteem. To find out more, visit our Community Fair Trade section.

I like the packaging. It looks so clean and classy.

This lipstick is indeed moisturizing! The colour can be a little hard to wear. I had to wear foundation for me to pull this off because without a nice foundie, it somehows highlight the dullness of my bare face. Lasting power is just okay. I have to reapply after eating, drinking and the like. 

It's a light pink shade, sort of metallic. I rather wear something matte or a bold pink color though but I still wear this once in a while. It looks good with dark eyeshadows!

Have you tried any of The Body Shop's Colourglide Shine Lip Colours?
Which one? What are you thoughts on Pink Flash?



  1. I could never pull off a shade like that, huhu

  2. I do agree that this shade is quite difficult to pull. I have to do a certain makeup look so that this will look decent on me. :P

  3. Such a wearable pink! Totally thought id be bright hot pink!
