The Body Shop isn’t usually somewhere I look to for makeup, but with their new Colour Crush lipsticks replacing their Colourglide line they’re seriously making my beauty ears perk up! 

As always, The Body Shop are incredibly focused on fair trade ingredients and these lipsticks are no exception. The cherry seed oil and marula oil are the reason these lipsticks are incredibly moisturising and glide on easily without dragging the lips. 

There are 24 shades split into three colour categories; reds, pinks and nudes. I have to say there are a few questionable browns but I’ve picked out my top 9 to show you and I think they’re pretty great. 

Fuchsia lovers go for 201 and 205 which are both really vibrant and eye catching. Nude gals, there are a lot for you to choose from, my favourites are 110, 225, 315 and 320 which are all slightly different but all pretty pink/peachy toned nudes. I also love 105 which is a bright orange, 101 a true red and 115 a deeper raspberry red. 

The colours are really bold, but the formula is moisturising and that’s normally quite hard to find. Be aware that some finishes are quite pearly, but there are definitely still quite a few wearable shades. 

They’re £10 each, so quite mid-range, but if good quality ingredients is your thing I think this is quite an exciting launch. They’re available in store from 20th August, so you’ll be able to browse and swatch for yourself! 

Are you already a fan of They Body Shop’s makeup range? Will you be trying these?

    I’m starting to hear a lot more about the Body Shop’s makeup range. I still haven’t tried their makeup products yet but I’m definitely started to get interested, especially that bronzer with the honeycomb print on it.

    Yay! I used to work there and I always thought their makeup didn’t get enough love largely due to the packaging and old fashioned colour range but this looks a lot better :)

  21. I am not into Body Shop’s makeup neither, I only tried their clear gel mascara for my eyebrows which is not that good. But these lipsticks I can check, they sound nice.


  22. Love the look of 110. I’ve never really explored in-depth their makeup range only briefly with their sugar cube eyeshadows. Might have to and pick out a lipstick.
    Thanks for writing this!

    Definitely going to try some of these, the bodyshop does some of the best products out there

    Who even wears brown lipstick?! I can’t think of anything worse! I like the shades you chose… I have one of their normal lipsticks and it barely leaves any colour. I have to say £10 is expensive for these full price, but TBS always have ridiculous sales anyway 😀 xx

  28. Jess says:

    Im excited for these! I really rate Body Shop – their gingerbread blusher is my fave! And I love their little perfumes which I keep inside my handbag. I’ll be going instore to find my perfect everyday pink :)

  30. Great post! Love the shade 105, I’ve never tried any of The Body Shop makeup so this has definitely inspired me! :)


  31. The new lipsticks seem great :). I have always liked body shop products but it was only recently that I have tried some of their makeup products and I really like their all in one blush in bubblegum. I will defo be trying these lipsticks when they are launched.


  32. They’re blushes are good and so is the eyeliners – they have a smudger on one end so you don’t have to use your clean brushes :) So is their bronzers although i’ve never tried anything else.

    They’re makeup brushes are also amazing and should really get more credit i think – i wrote about them if your interested lily :)
