The Body Shop Metallic Lip Liquids!

22nd December 2017

Hey everyone!

I hope your countdown to Christmas has been exciting, not long at all to go now! Todays post will be looking at The Body Shops recent release of their metal lip liquids. I’m a big fan of their regular ones so I was super excited to see them bringing in the metallic trend and releasing some new ones for the festive season!

I have almost every colour from their original range of Matte Lip Liquids and my personal favourites are “Nairobi Camellia” which is an every day nudey pink and “Mauritius Dahlia” which is a berry burgundy. The formula is gorgeous, I feel it sits on the lips so nicely and only starts to go dry after about 6 hours of wear which is pretty decent.

They’ve bought out 6 metallic shades for Christmas. I only decided to pick up half of them as I wasn’t sure if the other ones would suit me all that well. The shades I decided to pick up were…

Rose Gold

A subtle but gorgeous gold nude, I think this would be great for a natural look with a light pink eyeshadow.

Plum Titanium

I thought from the packaging and the name that this one would be more of a burgundy with blue undertones but it’s more of a vibrant red. Still an absolutely gorgeous colour though with a more subtle metallic vibe. This is definitely my favourite out of the three!

Russet Copper

A strong brown that honestly suits me a lot less than I thought it would unfortunately but I can imagine it looking gorgeous on anyone that isn’t as pale as a ghost like me!

After trying out and wearing these a few times, I actually think I like the formula MORE than the original ones. I didn’t actually think that was possible as they’re so easy to wear. The colour payoff is gorgeous and vibrant too and the metallic effect is so perfect for this season or even to just spruce up a daytime look. I also recently ate a whole meal with “Plum Titanium” on and didn’t even have to reapply which I was thoroughly impressed by.

I just want to take a second to also thank The Body Shop for the recent “Happiness Package” they very kindly sent me. It really did cheer me up and was extremely generous of them to do so.

It includes two of my all time favourite skincare products, the Himalayan Charcoal Mask and Seaweed Face Wash which you can read about in my post here. And one of the brand new shades of the original Matte Lip Liquids called “Tuscany Lily” which I am in LOVE with. It’s sort of a browny burgundy which of course is perfect for this season, here it is:

The Body Shop have also released some other makeup bits for Christmas such as a star face stamp, cosmetic glitter and a giant body shimmer puff. What is your opinion on these? Do you think they’re cute or a bit too much of a throwback?

’Til next time,

    Omg the colour of the plum and russet in the main image are gorgeous! My fave is the plum one but I also would’ve thought a different shade by the name and packaging. I’ve only ever tried their skincare so I really need to delve into their makeup range xx

  13. Sharnah says:

    Russet Copper and Rose Gold are such pretty colours, I reckon they would make a lovely eyeshadow colour too! This post has made me want to try them out especially because you didn’t need to reapply after eating! x

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Yeah 100%! I am tempted to try them as eyeshadows as they are a very velvety formula and not sticky at all! X

  14. Mollie says:

    Loved this post, these look amazing and the shades are just gorgeous. I love the Russet Copper most, so perfect for this time of year! X

  15. Jas says:

    These look SO AMAZING! I have a colour that looks a lot like the Russet Copper, however I don’t like the formula of it as it’s really crumbly, so this one may be the perfect alternative as I really love the colour!

  16. Dominique says:

    Never heard of these metal lip liquids before, but I’m absolutely loving the Russet Copper one! Quite a unique colour! And you can never go wrong with that beautiful red colour which -as far as I can tell from the picture- suits you perfectly!


    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      It seems to be everyones favourite so far! The red has been my go to this Winter, it’s such a beautiful shade! X

  17. Emily Naylor says:

    These look amazing!! So nice to actually see the shades all on one person, great post x

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      Aww glad you enjoyed! I always like to do real life swatches as you can see what the product actually looks like on the lips rather than back of the hand x

  18. Sophie says:

    I definitely wouldn’t be buying a shimmer puff anytime soon but I LOVE the look of these lip products! The rose gold one is so unique and looks gorgeous on you! – x

  19. Alicia says:

    I am loving the look of the rose gold one ?! It’s amazing how all the shades suit you btw. I had no idea that body shop were doing such great looking products!

    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      So glad you like, girl! I wouldn’t say the brown suited me that much but I love the others! Yeah and for a decent price too! X

  20. Alice says:

    The Copper one looks so so lovely on you! I’m not sure if it would suit me but I’m so intrigued as I’m loving my metallics lately. I always get worried things like this will be super drying but these sound really great x


    • blacktulipbeauty says:

      It really doesn’t suit me if you saw my whole face haha, I wish it did though!! Yeah they’re really surprisingly lovely on the lips X

  21. Lizzie says:

  22. Anu says:

    Ooh, these look so fab! I love the copper one! I have a few metallic liquid lipsticks but I don’t wear them as much as I should. I think that with a neutral eye makeup these would look really nice 🙂 x
