How was your karwachauth event? Ours was great and slight hectic. It was fun fasting and feasting with our big group this year. I felt very satisfied and happy after listening karwa poojan song and katha in a group unlike last year when we were alone while celebrating all events here. Thankfully, Aadya also co-operated as expected and she was enjoying with her uncle and buddies while we were freely doing pooja ceremony and photosession as well 😛 Finally, one event successfully finished, now rushing for Diwali event preparations. It will be fun to have people around celebrating all festivals together and having fun! I was willing to share my outfit and event pics as OOTD, but I have limited collection which I already shared with you all in my last OOTDs. Hence, I will share my karwachauth event pics at the end of this post. Well, I will also share my TBS purchase with you all today, which is not my oh-so-favourite, in fact slightly disappointing 🙁 Read on further to know about TBS New Colour Crush Lipstick in the shade Rush of Pink.

This luscious lipstick gives a stunning pop of color and rich moisture, infused with a subtle rose scent.
- High-impact color.
- Rich moisture.
- Infused with a subtle rose scent.
This New Colour Crush lipstick comes in translucent red cap and silver bullet packaging with shade number and other details printed at bottom. Case seems slight filthy as compared to other drug store brand lipstick’s packaging. It does have a mild scent which is hardly noticeable, at least for scent lovers like me 😛
My Experience with The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick – Rush of Pink:
Well, I was looking for my bath and body care regimen at TBS, when the SA introduced me to their new arrivals. As any other shopaholic, I was easily convinced and ended up buying this bright pink pearly shade as other shades were either too light or kind of dull on my skin. Moreover, recently my smart baby ate up my L’Oreal Vagabond Mauve shade (my favourite pink) and I came to know that L’Oreal has discontinued this particular shade 🙁 Hence, I wanted a close match of that saucy hot pink; however, this Rush of Pink is nowhere close to L’Oreal in any sense, but finally, I got a saucy pink shade from Sephora (closest match to L’Oreal Vagabond Mauve), which I will share with you soon.
Anyway, as the name suggests “Rush of Pink,” looks quite appealing and bright metallic pink sometimes with fine shimmer which is just subtle. I was really happy to get it first, but when I saw its sheer pigmentation on the lips, my happiness turned into disappointment. It gives such uneven and sheer pigmentation even on scrubbed and smooth lips. I noticed this shade kind of aggravates dental issues, my teeth looks pale yellow in pictures 😛 I don’t know if it happens with every pink or light shade, you tell me ladies? The finishing is not what I expect from a product which is double the price of our favourite drugstore brands, you know what I mean. I had to pay full price for this lipstick, hence I am more disappointed though I won’t take this lipstick even for free now. The shade is undoubtedly superb (if I don’t laugh out loud flaunting teeth in my pics :P), but the pigmentation and finishing spoils the whole mood and appearance of this shade on lips.
The staying power was pretty average as it hardly comes up fully on the lips. I must say those who have pigmented lips should stay away from this particular lipstick. I really compared its pigmentation and finishing with NYC and WnW lipsticks and I found even NYC/ WNW lipsticks work much well. I am sure you will also think the same after looking at the swatches. I feel I should rather invest my money on drugstore brands for lipsticks (as long as high-end brands are a dream :P) and TBS is only good for Bath and Body Works as far as I have experienced. I would not ever recommend this lipstick to anyone, I am just using it as a base with my deeper shades just to finish off and get rid of it 😛
Let’s sum up the pros and cons:
Pros of The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick – Rush of Pink:
- A gorgeous appealing pink shade with fine shimmer.
- Mild scent suitable for sensitive noses.
Cons of The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick – Rush of Pink:
- Pigmentation and finishing sucks.
- Slightly filthy packaging as compared to L’Oreal and Maybelline’s branded packaging.
- Almost double the price of drugstore brands, but nothing new or extraordinary.
- This particular shade won’t suit pigmented lips.
- It highlights dental issues such as yellow teeth.
Well, this is my first lipstick purchase from TBS and I don’t know if I will ever reconsider their cosmetics. I would say better check twice or thrice before getting in honey trap of SAs 😛 They are so pricey yet nothing distinct or appealing other than the shade itself. I won’t get this shade even if its for free. Hope this review helps 🙂
Guys, there you go with our karwachath event. Let me tell you, this yellow beautiful shawl which I am wearing over saree is our kumaouni traditional wear exclusively for married kumaouni ladies. We usually wear this beautiful “pichoura” on almost every occasions like wedding, festivals or pooja ceremonies as our traditional symbol of “suhaag.” I am deeply obsessed with this yellow shawl “pichoura.” Isn’t it beautiful, stylish yet traditional 🙂
Hope you enjoyed the pictures 🙂
