The Swatch Files: The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain: Bronze Glimmer

Like the rest of the beauty blogger congregation, I got this free with a copy of InStyle magazine.

I have to say that I have never read InStyle magazine and I enjoyed it more than I enjoy magazines like Glamour.  There are a lot of ads in it but that's to be expected of any magazine.

Anyway, the Lip and Cheek Stain.

Fine glittery bits..

The wand is not pictured here as this isn't a review BUT it is a gorgeous purpley-pink colour and for some reason the product is cold when you put it on.  I've never experienced that before.

I tried to get swatches under as many lights as possible to show you the colours of the stain.  The first photograph is swatched straight off the doe foot applicator, the second and third are blended in a tiny bit and the last is what remains when you wipe it all off.

I used it on my lips and it made me look like I'd smeared my lips with glittery butter so that's a no no, I will stick to using it as a cheek stain (NOT that kind!) from now on.

It IS a stain.  I had to wash my hands with soap for about 10 minutes to get all the colour off.

  1. I don't know how fond I am of Body Shop make up, it always dried my skin out. This doesn't seem so great.

  2. Body shop range isnt that great, only like their liquid eyeliner!
