Hello Beautiful Ladies,
How was your new year celebration? Mine was great! we went for a vacation to Cairns and I really had fun and you know what I took a photo holding the Koala just as Rati did. Aye, it was awesome. Even during my vacation I did some shopping and got a wonderful product from The Body Shop. It is their new launch; Matte Lip Liquid. So, we shall jump into the review.

My Experience with The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid – Goa Magnolia:
As liquid lipsticks took over the makeup world, The Body Shop have also jumped into the competition. They have introduced Matte Lip Liquids with almost 8 shades launched here in Australia, but I think around 12 shades are launched in other parts of the world and in the US. They are nicely packaged with a color coded bottom and a chic velvet matte black lid; they resemble Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creams.
They are surprisingly at a very cheap price point than most of the liquid lipsticks from the drugstore, which is a huge plus. Getting such an affordable product from The Body Shop is such a miracle. I chose the color “Goa Magnolia” which is kind of a beautiful raspberry pink shade. The name of these Lip colors have an interesting story, they are named after a place along with a famous flower from that region. For example “Magnolia” is a flower found in “ Goa “, they have a shade called “Mauritius Dahlia”, where “ Dahlia “ is the flower found in “Mauritius”, Interesting isn’t it?
There is quite a varied range of shades in this line spanning from nudes, brights, reds and bolds, so there is certainly something in there for everyone. They are very creamy to apply and dries down to a velvet powdery matte finish. The formula is fantastic! They’re very opaque and smooth and kind of fluffy like a mousse, so they’re easy to scoot and push around until they dry down, which takes about a minute. And then, they last on my lips about 5-6 hours.
The doe foot applicator is very comfortable and makes the lip shade application easy. The lip color survives even meals and the transfer rate is very very minimal unless you eat extremely greasy food. These sit comfortably on the lips and doesn’t dry out like other liquid lippies.
I usually have to run the liquid lipsticks back and forth across my lips, and sometimes they’ll get to that weird point of no return when they look thick and heavy and kind of gross, but I never got there with these. These lippies are very easy to remove, a simple wet tissue is enough to wipe it clean. And, these have a very delicious smell of a coconut pastry, which I love. So what else to say, these are one of the best liquid lipsticks I have tried and The Body Shop has nailed it.
