The Body Shop Plum Lip Gloss Review

Hi Friends,

Hope all of you are doing fine.  I am here today to share The Body Shop New Plum Lip Gloss with all of you.  I never knew I have this gorgeous TBS Shop very near to our place till the day I noticed wonderful reviews of TBS Skin Care and Bath products on IMBB. Since then, I am hooked to that shop and visit it every weekend to get heavenly scented samples and sometimes goodies.  This time, I got my favorite purple lip gloss from TBS, which is not so good, not so bad for me. Read on further to know about this new lip gloss.



$ 10 for 0.4 Fl Oz (12 ml).

  • Super shiny.
  • Sheer color.

This sheer sticky lip gloss comes in a see-through plastic tube packaging with slanted tip, like any old lip gloss packaging. It seems to be a travel-friendly tube along with light plummy taste and odor which fades after a few hours.

My Experience with The Body Shop Plum Lip Gloss:

TBS Plum Lip Gloss 4

I am already in love with TBS skin care products, thanks to Jomol, I got the Blue Corn Face Mask on her recommendation. Since it was a buy one get another 50% off here, I randomly picked this lip gloss in plum shade to get benefit of the offer.  Moreover, SA also suggested me to try their new range of lip glosses and body scrubs as I am well known to all of them for weekend mini hauls 😛 I was running short of time, hence I just picked it up randomly on her suggestion and came back home with TBS once again! You know I visit TBS shop for just 1-2 goodies, but screen their shop thoroughly for several minutes in hope of getting something interesting for my skin.

My hubby is the one who doesn’t know what’s the pleasure of window shopping.  He will just visit a shop, pick his stuff, and move back, so boring, eh? I take a full morning, afternoon or sometimes an evening walk inside the mall/shop and then come back home with samples always, though my hubby and baby are always ready to disturb my schedule. I just need to divert their mind towards the food corner and then run away from their sight.  So, they keep on eating and exploring new food items while I walk inside my favorite shop 😛

Anyway, coming back, this lip gloss is thick and sticky in nature that I wonder how come one would prefer this expensive stuff over other drugstore brands.  As they say, it is a sheer lip gloss, which imparts a subtle tinted glow on lips without any pigmentation. It would be great for topping over lip colors I feel. My favorite color is purple, so I picked this plum shade which has light shimmers and looks pinkish sheer plum when seen on the tube and when swatched on hand, but looks absolutely transparent on the lips.

The good thing is its sticky and thick, but feels light on the lips. However, whenever I walk down even in the light breeze, my hair tends to stuck on my lips.  This is the prime reason I dislike wearing it outside.  I can feel it’s not loaded with heavy chemicals as my lips feel fresh and hydrated without any itching or burning sensation even if I keep it overnight. I always noticed that some lip glosses tend to make lips darker, but thankfully, this particular lip gloss is free from all these problems. It has an average staying power like any other lip gloss, I keep on thinking as to what should be its USP! If I ask myself what’s the difference after wearing it on lips, strange but honestly, I will say none. It just looks like as if I am wearing Nivea or Vaseline lip gloss! Well, I think I might skip all these TBS glosses as after using L’Oreal, Maybelline, Neutrogena lip glosses and I feel they are way too pricey and have nothing interesting or unique features except natural ingredients.

Let’s sum up the pros and cons:

Pros of The Body Shop Plum Lip Gloss:

  • Beautiful pinkish plum shade with subtle shimmers.
  • Absolutely eye catchy see-through tube, looks appealing may be because of gorgeous shades inside.
  • Hydrating and thick gloss which is light on lips.
  • Does not irritate or cause break outs on the skin.
  • It does not make lips darker.

Cons of The Body Shop Plum Lip Gloss:

  • When you walk down in light breeze, hair tends to stick on the lips.
  • Nothing extra ordinary or interesting feature in this lip gloss.
  • It has average staying power as any other lip gloss.
  • I feel at such price, I may get 2 drug store lip glosses which work the same way or far better than this one.

I would confidently say that you can skip these lip glosses as they have nothing interesting or unique to go mad about them.  I am still thinking about its USP so that I may feel good about my extra money sent.  I just thank God for saving my 50% money, I won’t prefer it as a gift also.

  1. I feel it’s too sheer. WOuld have loved if the tube color would have really shown up on your lovely lips. Guess this is a pass for me. I love these tube packed lip glosses. Super easy to use and are very hygienic. Nice review. )

  2. I ignored TBS until I starting reading IMBB too 😛 I picked up their foundations and body products…slowly will try more stuff. This lip gloss isn’t going on the list 😛
    Hair sticking on lips! Such a pet peeve of mine!

    1. ohh. may b i never noticed sticky hairs in case of other lippy goodies then.. 😛 bt still this lippy is a skip surely for its zero pigmentation!!

  3. just not worth the price..
    skip and skip and skip…. hahahaha
    I buy all TBS product only after reading the reviews om IMBB… 😛

    1. yeah a skip forever.. 🙂 You won’t imagine i noticed TBS, MAC N Sephora at my near by mall just after reading rave reviews on imbb, though am visiting that mall since 2 yrs.. 😛

  4. Distracting with food. lol Thank you for reviewing this. Going to stay away from it, I dislike sticky lip products.

    1. ha ha .. yeah wen u have yelling hubby n superactive baby ready to distract u its better u distract them.. 😉 😛 m glad to help u rene.. its certainly a dud for me.. 😛

  5. Oh my god.. Neetu the packaging is certainly very cute…and it definitely looks very pretty on you.. when I first saw the piccy I thought I’d buy this one..such a sweet little baby.. but after reading your review, I wouldn’t no matter how much the pink in it screams to me… 😛

  6. sadly these type of glosses don’t show up on the lips… Neetu u must try the make up which is launched by Drew Barrymore, its just awesome… they are available at Walmart and may be other drugstores… i loved ur lip swatch and review <3 🙂
