The Body Shop New Colour Crush Lipstick Collection with swatches!

Hey hey heyyy!  Welllll this is a very exciting post for me as I was lucky enough to win @TheBodyShopUk's #firstcrush competition on twitter... on my BIRTHDAY of all days! Wooop! The competition was massive and I won all 24 of their brand new Colour Crush Lipsticks.  At £10 a pop, that's some win!  They came in wonderful packaging with a lovely postcard from one of the media team congratulating me on winning and also wishing me a Happy Birthday - how sweet!
So anyway, I just wanted to show you all every single lipstick from their collection, in the hope that you will go out and grab one or two and join me in the rave over these brand new lippys! 

These brand spanking new lipsticks are described on the website;
This luscious lipstick gives a stunning pop of colour and rich moisture, infused with a subtle rose scent.

  • High-impact colour
  • Rich moisture
  • Infused with a subtle rose scent

The one annoying thing about these lipsticks is (call me weird) that they don't show the name of the lipstick on the bottom, just the number!  I like my lipsticks to have a name and number.  These only show the number, even though they do all have names as they were on the outer wrapping of each lipstick!  Strange. So I wrote them all down before I binned the wrappers so that I could put all of the names on here! haha!

NB: Just wanted to add that a lot of them arrived squashed inside the packaging! They're not ruined or anything but just the tips of some of them are a little squished as they were kept upside down in the packaging they arrived in and were probably bashed around a bit during transit.  Think I'll take them out of there.  (Just didn't want you all thinking I'd been handling them roughly haha)

They come in 3 different sections; Reds, Pinks and Nudes/Browns (100's, 200's and 300's)  The lids are coloured by section as opposed to the actual shade.  So the reds have a red lid, pinks have pink, browns have brown. Ha. (I probably didn't need to fully explain that but hey!) I'll start with the Reds!

101 - Red Siren
105 - Coral Cutie
110 - Coral Blush
115 - Enraptured Red
120 - Raspberry in Love
125 - Crazy Sexy Crimson


201 - Redhot Raspberry
205 - Passionate Pink
210 - Sweetheart Pink
215 - Innocent Pink
220 - Dare to Bare
225 - Blushing Pink
230 - Rush of Pink
235 - The Right Mauves
240 - Damson in Distress

As you can see, the pinks took a lot of damage on route! :( 


301 - Drive Me Nuts
305 - Golden Flirt
310 - Crush on Caramel
315 - Coral Kiss
320 - Berry in Love
325 - Darling Blush
330 - Spice Things Up
335 - Hot Date
340 - Berry Me


Soo thats the lot!!  What do you all think of this fab new collection?  Do any colours jump out at you?
I have to say, obviously I haven't tried them all yet, but at the moment my personal favourites have got to be..  115, 205, 315 & 320.  I know I'm not going to like all of them, I'm not lucky enough to suit EVERY single shade.. but who is? Overall I'm chuffed to bits with these lipsticks.  The formula is so creamy and moisturising which is something I NEED with a lipstick as my lips get very dry.  A massive thumbs up from me and a HUGE thankyou to The Body Shop for my win!  As you can see, there's a shade to suit almost everyone so I'm confident in saying you won't be disappointed!  Hope this post helps! xx
