There’s something in the water at The Body Shop: they keep developing innovative, unique and surprising products that leave me wanting more. This Christmas there’s something a little bit special hitting stores that will no doubt become a best selling stocking-filler. This lip and cheek stain comes packaged in the most adorable pot inspired by Japanese culture (I’m sure it’s a little more specific than that, so forgive me for my ignorance!) and is sure to be a must-have for all beauty fanatics. The doll-like base unit even includes a top-knot style lid that features a precision foam applicator, while the lightweight formula inside can be used as both a cheek and lip stain to add a touch of colour to any complexion.
The universal shade is much more wearable than Benefit’s Benetint (which can be incredibly dark and hard to budge,) providing an understated tint that looks brilliant on naked lips and under either balm or gloss. It’s not incredibly long-lasting, gradually wearing off after an hour or two, but it is comfortable to wear and completely non-drying. I’m not sure what the design has to do with Christmas at all, but I really do love it – it’s cute, quirky and will definitely appeal to your inner kid. What do you think of this latest new launch from The Body Shop?
The Lip & Cheek Doll is available this October priced £10.00.
