I had purchased The Body Shop’s Delipscious Lip Colour in 09 Pomegranate just a few weeks back (blog entry here), made from 100% food grade ingredients.
Well, I just happened to be popping by The Body Shop at my nearest mall to nose around…and my Pavlovian response kicked in when I saw that they were now marked down by 25% from SGD$19.90 to SGD$14.93!

But I couldn’t resist, the frail-willed, weak-kneed female that I am where lipstuff is concerned. Beautifully shrinkwrapped =)
Those are the 100% food grade ingredients in the Delipscious Sheer Lip Colour glosses. Delipscious lip colours are 2g 0.07oz each.
Polyricinoleate, Citric Acid, Ipomea Batatas Root Extract, Water, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Vaccinlum Myrtillus Seed Oil, Flavour, Tocopherol. (May Contain: Mica, Iron Oxides, Titanium Dioxide)
I picked up:
03 Sheer Watermelon
04 Sheer Candy
07 Sheer Raspberry
That’s Watermelon, which doesn’t look red at all, but a lovely, wearable, sheer peach.
Makes me wonder why it’s called Watermelon instead of Peach. A very wearable, barely there colour that leans slightly warm.
That’s how Sheer Candy 04 looks in the tube. A slightly dusky mauve light pink. You’d probably think there’s not much colour payoff.
That’s how 04 Sheer Candy looks swatched on the skin. The most pigmented out of the 3 and not so much pink, but a light plum-pink.
07 Sheer Raspberry leans cool in the tube (and no, it doesn’t resemble the true colour of a raspberry fruit).
That’s 07 Sheer Raspberry swatched – the sheerest out of the 3. While it leans cool, as it’s so sheer, most of your original lip colour will still show through. So warm toned ladies don’t have to worry about this being cool rather than warm.
More swatches taken indoors with natural light.
Which one’s your favourite?
I find these 3 shades very wearable on all skintones and rather “fail-proof”. Although the staying power isn’t fantastic, but it’s a joy to re-apply. They’re not too moisturising so those with dry lips might wish to layer some balm under.
Quality: 7.5 (some might find it slightly too waxy)
Packaging: 9 (stylish, classy silver recycled aluminium casing and slimlines make colour applications so easy)
