Taking the chubby lip pencil trend to the next level, this Spring The Body Shop has introduced a brand new collection of chubby sticks in five fantastic poppy shades.
Promising a super soft, velvety, matte finish with a flushed glow, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on one of them.
Inspired by colourful poppy flowers, the five shades (nude, red, coral, bronze and pink) are beautiful, and you’re bound to find one that matches your skin tone.
We chose the Poppy Coral (no.35) shade – a delicate pink balm with hints of rose. Perfect for everyday wear.
What is most noticeable about this product is the texture – it’s smooth and easy to blend and we didn’t hesitate to use it on our cheeks.
Sometimes cheek and lip products can be a bit tricky to use, but The Body Shop have created a lightweight formula that glides effortlessly onto the skin.
The stick is also well pigmented which means you only really need to apply it once, blend with your fingers, and voila! You have an instant rosy glow.
Once applied to the lips the Poppy Coral shade left a delicate matte finish. Better yet, the product is hydrating and feels like a moisturising lip balm.
Throughout the day the Lip & Cheek Stick retains its colour and vibrancy, although naturally the lip colour fades a little.
We are really impressed with The Body Shop’s first chubby stick, and the Coral shade has become a regular beauty essential in our make-up kit.
It is versatile, easy to use and perfect for make-up beginners.
