The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipsticks: PART 1

So The Body Shop have a new lipstick range launching… called Colour Crush and there’s a whole lot of colour in there! If there’s a red, brown, or pink shade you like then you can almost certainly gamble that they have it covered. When this pink and silver tube arrived I was a bit baffled, but then realised it pulled apart to reveal three secret sections, each housing a different colour family and all the shades! So lets take a closer look at each of them…and then I’ll tell you my favourites from each colour range.

115 ‘Enraptured Red’
105 ‘Coral Cutie’
110 ‘Coral Blush’
101 ‘Red Siren’
120 ‘Raspberry In Love’

325 ‘Darling Blush’
330 ‘Spice Things Up’
340 ‘Berry Me’
301 ‘Drive Me Nuts’
320 ‘Berry in Love’

Again, starting from the top and working clockwise…

220 ‘Dare to Bare’
225 ‘Blushing Pink’
