The Body Shop Flavoured Lip Gloss in Lychee

Hey dears!

Last March I received a package from The Body Shop containing quite a number of loots. One of them is this...

The Body Shop Flavoured Lip Gloss in Lychee

It smells super good and it tastes so sweet! An even more sweetened lychee. I doubt that I can give an estimate of the product's lasting power since I can't stop licking it off my lips. LOL But it is just an ordinary lipgloss so I guess it stays for only a couple of hours. :P

It's packaged in a transparent tube. I do prefer my glosses with applicators than like this where you have to squeeze it out and you have to directly place the tube on your mouth. I just find this kind of packaging so messy and controlling the amount of product you squeeze out can be tedious compared to the glosses with applicators already. So I just carry around a lip brush with me at all times. :P

This is what's on the back of the packaging...

And here are more info about the lip gloss from the website:

High-impact, glossy colour with a juicy lychee flavour. This luscious lip gloss delivers super-shiny, sheer colour.

The heart inside:

Our Community Fair Trade marula oil comes from the Eudafano Women’s Co-operative in northern Namibia. The women hand-select the marula fruits, then the nuts are extracted and dried in the sun. The kernels are cold-pressed to release the oil. The 1,750 women involved in the project report that the benefits to them go beyond money. It also helps to give them a sense of independence, business management and confidence. To find out more, visit our Community Fair Trade section.

How to use
Apply to lips straight from the tube.

Swatch on my hand

It's like a translucent nudish pink. Almost the same color as my lips!

On my lips

It makes my lips look healthier and fuller. I like the finish but I wish it gives a little more coverage. :)

I guess that's all I have to say about the product. :)
