My friend and I did a makeup swap, and now I have The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid in my kit - in a shade I wouldn't have picked out for myself. Haha! I usually go for dark lipsticks. My bet from this range was initially the deep and dark Sicily Iris, but the makeup artist recommended me Goa Magnolia (a berry pink shade) which look really flattering against my pale skin. Today, it's going to be about the shade Taipei Orchid! 💋
Matte liquid lipsticks are trending and almost all makeup brands have their own version of it, but I was extra happy when The Body Shop finally released their own line of Matte Liquid Lip in 12 stunning shades. The Body Shop doesn't include shady ingredients to their products, so I know my lips won't darken or dry out. The Matte Lip Liquid is 100% vegetarian, and contains no gluten and carmine! The packaging looks simple but classy - from the matte cap to the glossy body, and it's lightweight and durable. I love how the brand is changing to a more modern look for all their products.

Taipei Orchid (What a pretty soft pink shade!) 💖
Taipei Orchid when worn
First up, this lippie has the most amazingly delicious bubblegum scent! 😍 The formula is creamy, almost mousse-like, and never runny. It doesn't dry too quickly, so you'd have ample time to blend the lipstick evenly. The doe foot applicator works well with blending the formula. It dries down to a velvety, soft matte finish with a cushy feel. It feels so light and non-sticky, I sometimes forget that I have it on! Lasting power is amazing too - around 5 to 6 hours. It even withstands meals, provided it's not too oily. My lip swatch didn't do it justice as it looks lovelier in real life. The shade Taipei Orchid is still a bit on the pale side though, so I cannot wear it with a bare face. I have to add some blush and this one, and I'm good for the entire day. (I still love wearing it since it makes me look like a good and less sungit girl. LOL!) I love its formula, but I will get it in the pretty nude but not pale Nairobi Camellia (which is universally loved by my teammates) or the brighter Goa Magnolia next. 😚
