The Body Shop Love Gloss

One of the many things I received to review from the Toronto Beauty Blogger meetup a month ago was this gloss:

The applicator is heart shaped. It looks cute, however I found it does not pick up quite enough gloss to cover my lips and 'double dipping' is necessary.

The colour I got was Shade 13 Pale Pink, which is a sheer light pink with multicoloured shimmer.

Texture-wise it is sticky, but as a result the staying power is good. Fortunately it is not as sticky as MAC Lipglass (which I have stopped buying because I can't stand the stickiness).

It has a slight scent but not strong at all. Smells sorta fruity but I can't quite put my finger on the fruit name...

My lips are quite dark naturally so it shows up mostly as semi sheer pink shimmer. I think this colour would work best on me if I wore a nude lipstick underneath first.

Retails at CA$12 on TheBodyShop.ca website. You get 7.5 mL of product as well so it is more budget friendly than MAC glosses. Not to mention the Body Shop does a lot of promotions frequently (for example this weekend they had a get 50% off everything if you purchased a $5 eco bag).

Overall, this would suit you if you like glosses with great staying power. Shade 13 would be a good choice if you are in the market for a gloss with a natural look, or to add shimmer to a flat lip colour.

The packaging is so pretty and I love the color :) Too bad I can't buy any more lip products until I'm done using my current stash :T

I love the diamond shaped heart applicator, but it sucks that it doesnt pick up that much product. I like the color on you, makes ur lips look super plump!

Oh, so cute! I've actually never tried a TBS lipgloss. Good to hear they they're not very sticky!

I never understood why poeple hate sticky glosses......all you need is not touching your lips and don't wear they on windy days o_O
Actually I like how they stay on long

It looks so pretty on you! You make me want to buy one, but sadly my lips are much more red than yours!
