Body Shop Lip Gloss Dot

Lip gloss Dot? Must be Lip Gloss Pot, dolls! Today, we have Body Shop lip glosses in shades #1 Ice Shimmer, #3 Hot Pink and #4 Soft Plum! Unfortunately, we missed #2 Candy Pink and #5 Bilberry Juice!

Gives your lips a natural sheen while conditioning them with an everyday gloss that can be worn alone or over lip color! Moisturizing "Community Trade" marula oil from Namibia leaves lips soft and supple! Passion fruit fragrance adds a refreshingly juicy scent! Organic beeswax moisturizes and helps to condition dry skin, especially on your lips and around the fingernail beds! Acts as a barrier that helps to seal in moisture! Helps to keep product texture consistent when used over time! Vitamin E conditions, nourishes and protects the skin, leaving it soft, smooth and healthy! Organic Virgin/hydrogenated Coconut Oil helps to condition the skin to make you smooth, soft and deliciously scented!

Ingredients - Polybutene, Hydrogenated Polydecene, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, Beeswax, Polyethylene, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Hydrogenated Coconut Oil, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Silica, Ricinus Communis (Castor Seed) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Barium Sulfate, Flavor, Propylparaben, Ammonium Glycyrrhizate, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Linalool, Citronellol, Geraniol, Eugenol, Citral, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Mica, Titanium Dioxide

Ice Shimmer, Hot Pink, Soft Plum with flash!

Ice Shimmer, Hot Pink, Soft Plum without flash!

Love at first sight, but definitely not at first swipe! Just kiddin'! As you can see, Ice Shimmer is sheer sparkly gloss! Definitely, makes a great top coat! I feel the glitter in Ice Shimmer is kinda chunky compared to the other ones! The level of shimmer and sparkle varies accordingly!

If you remember, I got these in a sale for a pound each! I am not sure of the original price, though! I heard it was 6 pounds, but no confirmation! Will double check with Margaret from Body Shop and let you know ASAP! Why? We definitely dont wanna miss the original price coz thats what makes the purchase FUN! Who can resist the packaging? Definitely not myself! Glamorous packaging! Sleek n shiny! What would you do if you find these for a pound or whatever your currency is?

The colors can be sheer or buildable, depends on how you want them! So convenient! The colors are not very pigmented, so you can use them as a base coat or top coat or as your sole lip color! Hope this makes sense!

Alright! I deserve the "most pathetic swatches/pictures" award! Hey, why not somebody do that? Winning is my motto, best or worst! I want to WIN! I know, I will surely win this! Please vote for me! Next time, I will do my level best to help you win! Deal? Phew! Feels better!

Excuse me for not describing the shades! On lips, Soft Plum doesnt sparkle as much as Hot Pink! HP has some weird undertones, which makes my teeth look yellow and grubby! I can assure you HP has purple/blue undertones, which help my teeth look YUCK!

If I use the gloss alone, nothing exciting happens! I used Clinique All About Eyes as a lip base and tried the gloss! I know that sounds gross, but it worked! Ahem! I can speak, understand, read and write English! My lips were soft for a reasonable amount of time! Staying power? Definitely doesnt stick on for more than half an hour, which doesnt sound good! My observation! I was wrong in expecting a miracle! Now, I know glosses dont do the dishes!

Only downside, the fragrance! I know people are going gaga over the scent of this! Exclude me! I have never been a fan of fruity flavor, especially the nauseating ones! Indian dolls, ever tried Parle G Poppins? How do they feel? Hard and nauseating! They come in all sorts of fruity flavors! Others, its passion fruit fragrance that adds a refreshingly juicy scent! Yet to be blessed to sniff Passion fruit! God, please help me! I think I am gonna puke! Verdict? I am happy if not for the fragrance!

Time for vital stats! This 6.5 ml or 0.2 OZ or 6.5 g retails for "NOT SURE!" Lets assume 6 pounds, until we have the official confirmation! The life expectancy? Alright! They expire in 36 months! Whoaaa!

Three Musketeers!

For me, these glosses are ego satisfiers! God knows where I picked that word from! I definitely dont want to pass these, especially for the price! Not inspiring, of course! Building your collection? Try these! They look good! They feel good! Expect a typical gloss, nothing more!
