Recently I 'accidentally' ended up in a Body Shop store whilst out and about and found a gorgeous little lip product. I had to buy it and have been wearing it basically non stop since.
The Matte Lip Liquid is a relatively new product and costs only £6 in the UK. I bought the shade 017 'Mauritius Dahlia' which is a deep burgundy red colour. You can find it in your local Body Shop or here.
It is incredibly easy to apply, with a velvet soft texture and the doe's foot applicator.
It takes a little time to settle onto the skin and lasts for a couple of hours without coming off too much.
For a matte lip product, it isn't too drying and feels nice throughout the day.
I do love this lip liquid, but found the product different to how I thought it would be.
It was described to me in terms of the Sleek Matte Me Liquid Lip - which sets dry and is smudge-proof for several hours - however it is more similar to the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream.
I still have to wipe coffee cup rims to remove some residue and it doesn't set fully. I always have thought of this as a basic standard for a good matte lip product and find it a bit disappointing in that respect.
However it does only need one coat and hasn't looked patchy (as some matte lipsticks can do) so far.
I have been a longtime fan of The Body Shop for many years and worked there in the past.
I hope they can build on their history of good quality, cruelty-free products and really do some great things in 2017.
In conclusion, it is a decent matte lip product at it's price - especially seeing as it is cruelty free (kinda) and vegetarian.
Have a wonderful day my loves.
