The Body Shop Hi-Shine Lip Treatment Cherry Glimmer Review

Post by my friend Tejinder Kaur

This is a review of The Body Shop Hi-Shine Lip Treatment in shade Cherry Glimmer shade 15.

The Body Shop Hi-Shine Lip Treatment Cherry Glimmer Review

The Body Shop Claims - A range of ultra-shiny, sheer tinted, wet-look lip glosses that offer intense moisturization and conditioning to the lips. Each is subtly scented with a passion fruit fragrance. Dermatologically tested.

Product Description: The Body Shop Hi-Shine Lip Treatment comes in a choice of 9 colors. I bought Cherry glimmer shade 2 weeks ago from The Body shop. It is a transparent cherry red shade with multicolored micro-shimmer in it. The color is really pretty and sheer.

It has pretty good staying power. I love the feel of this gloss, and it moisturizes very well. It's smooth, delicate and caring. Very creamy, tasty and smells great like a fruit sweet scent. Consistency is good as it spreads evenly. It is very easy to use as it glides over the lips pretty easily with this slanted tip applicator. It gives glossy finish.

 Slanted tip applicator 
Packaging: It is a clear squeezing tube which identifies the color. It has a clear twist-off cap, which is rounded off. Has a slanted plastic applicator tip. The Plastic of the tube seems to be a little too stiff.

Texture: A bit sticky for me and too thick as well, yet creamy in texture. I love the fact that it leaves my lips very soft - this gloss does exactly what it says - nice and moisturizing. I like the finish, not too glossy but effective. It helps lips to stay comfortable even when it's cold and lips get dry.

Staying power: Stays maximum 3 hours. After about 3 hours the color on my lips is no longer there but my lips still look glossy, nice and shiny.

Pigmentation: Very good pigmentation. A single swipe builds up good color.

The pigmentation levels are really good in the darker / brighter shades but weaker in the lighter shades. They are quite moisturizing and will keep your lips soft, supple and protected. This is a real lip treatment.

Cost: £9.50 for 14ml (Around INR 575 in India). Discounts available during Body Shop Discount Sale.
Availability: The Body Shop

 Pros:  
  • Fantastic scent
  • Generally feels nice on the lips in terms of its consistency.
  • Pigmentation good
  • Pretty good staying power
  • Taste is good
  • Gives Glossy finish
  • Keeps your lips nice and moisturized
 Cons: 
  • A bit expensive
  • Very sticky; if you have long hair, they do stick to the lips.

 Final Verdict: 

If you are a fan of glossy or shine lip products and moderate stickiness is not a problem, give these glosses a try. The color selection seems to be nice, and you are likely to find one that suits your skin tone nicely. Very highly pigmented and smells like fruit.

Overall Rating :3.5/4
