Beauty News & Reviews
The Body Shop’s lip balms have been a long standing favourite of mine and I was suitably giddy when my brilliant boyfriend gave me a set of their balms as part of my Christmas pressie. All of these have been rolling around my various handbags since then and used frequently, although, as a total germ-aphobic person, I wouldn’t dip my manky finger into them when I was out and about unless it was pristine and clean. So reading my mind, The Body Shop have decided to solve my germ-ridden woes and have brought out a range of Born Lippy balm sticks to sit snuggly alongside their gorgeous pots.
This means now I can have the lovely pots at home and bring the sticks out and about with me, yeay!
I was given the plum shade to review and as soon as I applied it, I fell in love. Actually, as soon as I saw the cute packaging I fell in love! This gives a sheer wash of shiny purple love that is just right and I happily wore this on a night out without any other colour underneath. If you like a natural flush of colour on your lips this is the way to go girls! All for just €4.95!
I now must have them all to complete my uber Body Shop balm collection!
EDIT: My incredibly brilliant boyfriend surprised me with two more of these for Easter so take a peek!
They both smell divine, moisturise really well and give a gorgeous natural colour. The lighter pink berry shade gives a very pale pink sparkly sheen while the strawberry gives a gorgeous pink hue, I love them!
Pros: Cruelty free, cute range of colours and moisturising on the lips, cool packaging
Would I buy again? I plan on buying them all ASAP!
