The Body Shop NEW Colour Crush Lipstick #325 Darling Blush* - Review

I have another reason for you all to head out your doors and to go to your nearest The Body Shop store.
The NEW colour crush lipsticks range has 26 shades! The range promises high impact colour and rich moisture. The lipsticks are also infused with a subtle rose scent.
The lipstick comes with a transparent cap (colour corresponds to the shade of the lipstick, which is handy) the logo is printed onto the cap and the silver bullet packaging comes with a shade number but there is no name of the shade, however the actual name of the shade can be found on the sticker label that is removed when you take off the plastic packaging.
The lipsticks are grouped into shades, reds, pinks and nudes/browns. This particular shade is from the nudes/brown family.
I love this shade. It is a milky pink nude with tiny gold shimmers, wearing this really gives the illusion of fuller lips and though it has a pearly sheen it doesn't look too glitzy so it is very wearable, finding the right nude can be a challenge but this shade has a slight pinky golden undertone so it can suit anyone. 
Pigmentation is fab! in one swatch there is enough colour but you can build it up. 
The rose scent is slightly detectable but it isn't an important factor, I see it more as a perk.
However what is important is the formulation and longevity, this lipstick lasted quite long and I did use the 'blotting' technique with this one. This is also very creamy and this feels very moisturising on the lips, perfect for the weather now. On application this feels more like a hydrating lipbalm.
The price tag on this is slightly higher than your average highstreet brands but the pigmentation and quality surely makes up for that minor set back.

I really am impressed with this range and you should check out the Colour Crush Lipstick Range
