New Launch: The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid Lipstick Nairobi Camellia 034 Review, Swatches of Some Shades, FOTD

The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid Lipstick Nairobi Camellia 034

Hello ladies,

The Body Shop India recently launched their “Jacqueline’s Signature Line Makeup Collection.” It consists of 12 “Matte Lip Liquids,” 2 “Fresh Nude Cushion Foundations,” and 3 “Down to Earth Eyeshadows.” As usual, I was drawn toward the lipstick line. These Matte Lip Liquids are 100% vegetarian and have a beautiful velvety soft matte finish with a mango fragrance. And with 12 shades [swatches of some shades are included] to choose from, we can make a different statement every day. However, I picked only one shade, “Nairobi Camellia 034.”

Price: INR 695 for 8 ml

Shelf Life: 2.5 years

My Experience with The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid Lipstick Nairobi Camellia 034

Packaging: This matte lip liquid lipstick comes in a tube matching the exact shade of the lipstick with a twist-up black cap. The packaging makes it extremely easy to spot this lipstick in our stash. Keeping up with the name “Jacqueline’s Signature Line Makeup Collection,” there are stickers of a lip mark with Jacqueline’s signature. Although all information, including the ingredients list, is stuck on the wrap-around tear sheet, it is of no use when torn away. I wish at least the expiry date should be printed on the tube. The applicator works well in picking the right amount of lipstick and spreading evenly and smoothly on the lips. Its sleek, leak-proof packaging makes it travel friendly.

Texture: The texture of this matte lip liquid lipstick is soft, smooth, creamy, and lightweight. It applies evenly and smoothly on the lips. The creamy formula settles down to a matte finish. It is super lightweight and comfortable to wear. It is moderately pigmented and can be built up. Two coats are needed to cover up my pigmented lips. It is absolutely nondrying.

Shade: “Nairobi Camellia 034” is a beautiful nude pink. The shades are named with a unique combination of cities and flowers. This color is truly my MLBB shade. It is such a pretty and daily wear shade for everyone. It could easily be the perfect nude for darker skin tones. However, I am not happy with the shade range. The shades are either too light or too dark.

Performance: This matte lip liquid lipstick is smooth and mousse like and dries down in a minute, giving a velvety matte finish. It feels so lightweight and lusciously soft on the lips. It does not dry the lips, unlike most liquid lipsticks. It can easily be one of the most comfortable wear liquid lipsticks. It is a gorgeous nude pink color and works best for daily wear. It glides on evenly and does not cling on to dry patches. It does not crumble or flake on the lips, so it can be reapplied without any flakiness or unevenness. The applicator picks the right amount of the lipstick and aids in a precise application. This lip color does not crease and transfers minimally. It is not transferproof either. It neither settles into fine lines nor accentuates them. It stays on for good 5–6 hours and surprisingly can survive meals. This lip color fades evenly and does not leave behind any stain. It is quite easy to remove. Oh my God! I love  its delicious fruity fragrance. Lighter shades have sheer to medium pigmentation, whereas darker shades are opaque. It truly justifies its price. Moreover, it is 100% vegetarian and cruelty free. Overall, I am in love with this comfortable, nondrying matte liquid lipstick.
