The BodyShop Lipstick No. 12

Who doesn't like to have a red hot pout?? I know , there will be noone, infact all of us love to carry a perfect red pout with elegance, but we are scared of going over the board or not confident enough to even give it a try. Today I would like you people to meet No. 12 of The bodyShop ( I seriously don't understand this numbering system followed by TBS, they remind me of my school and college, where I use to remember few of my classmates with their role no.s ( I have a very bad memory esp to remember names ��)).

What TBS claims:
Our classic lipstick gives intense, lasting color, Moisturising & Dermatological tested

Price :
  QR 50 for 3.5 gm

What Is My Opinion :

I love bold colours on my lips, infact more than eye makeup initially I loved lip colours. I got this lippies from TBS in sale with few other which are yet to be reviewed. The package is silver coloured small bullet shape with rose gold coloured inside panel, It's the classic TBS lipstick package. Colour is perfect red ( somewhat brick red) with golden shimmer. It's perfect shade with any indian attire. The texture is smooth and glides very well on the lips, it gives perfect coverage also which tames from medium to full coverage. It is highly pigmented, 1 swipe is enough to get the beautiful shade and 2 swipes give you the intense colour.

Because of the smooth texture and bullet shape if the lipstick application is super simple and easy. The only problem and which actually is a major issue is the staying power of the lipstick. As it is very smooth , moisturizing and hydrating on lips it's stating power is hardly 4 hours. But don't worry, I have a quick fix for that also( yes yes Iam super smart ��). Okay, it's not big thing which I discovered and all, it's the age old way to increase the staying power of lipstick, REAPPLICATION, yeah, first apply lipstick, then kiss on a tissue and remove the excess , again apply and repeat this for 3 times  and now you are ready to go. Some of you will be thinking, Iam crazy , who has time for all these fuzz, but believe me ladies the shade is all worth it, but still you think , this is wat too much for a lipstick, then please skip this lippy, it's not for you, remember ??no pain no gain.

My conclusion of the product :

Hits :

•. Beautiful shade
•  Smooth  creamy texture
•  Moisturizing on lips
•  Highly pigmented 
•  Classic package
•  Good fruity fragrance 
•  Suitable for all skin tones
•  Trust of TBS products 
•  It has shimmer and glossy feeling so need to top with any gloss.
•  Perfect with Indian party wear , can be worn with western dress also.
•  It gives medium to full coverage.
•  Bullet shape, easy for application 

Miss :

The only and major problem is the staying power of the lippy, it need to be reapplied for few time to make it stay longer on lips.


My Rating: 

4.5 / 5 ( I think I need to have genuine here, stating power is very unfortunate )

My Opinion: 

I love this lipstick, it give smooth creamy high pigmented red colour with a touch of shimmer to your lips. If you don't want to waste your time reapplying and reapplying then skip this one, but if you can take that time for a beautiful colour go for it, you will love it . I personally don't mind wasting time if I would look beautiful, BTW why not??��

Stay Beautiful & Happy
