The Body Shop Born Lippy Satsuma Shimmer Review

Hello, all you beautiful people. I am back with another body shop product and this time, it is actually a combination of two products its he The Body Shop Born Lippy Satsuma Shimmer. The name just suggests that it is a meager lip shimmer but there is something else associated with it.  We are always looking out for products that make us feel and look better but at the same time, don’t burn our pockets. The expectation of a lip shimmer which I have is that it shouldn’t be too runny or too sticky, not too greasy or buttery, should be in a form that imparts little or no color and hydrates the lips without attracting dirt and also imparts shimmer. Wow, so many expectations from a lip shimmer? Yes, read on to know what the product actually is.

Basic information about The Body Shop Born Lippy Satsuma Shimmer

As we all know, the body shop is an immensely famous international brand that is one of those brands which is cruelty-free, vegan, parabens-free etc. A part of the profit also goes to the under privileged children in Africa, which, I think is absolutely great. The body shop manufactures lip products among which lip shimmer is one of them. Lip shimmers are not for the matte lovers, it is for those who like those glamorous shiny lips with a bit of tint to it. It gives a hint of gloss and shine and comes along with a wonderful fragrance

Brand claims

With the goodness of Satsuma peel essential oil, community fair trade beeswax, orange oil and lanolin, the body shop Satsuma shimmer is definitely a treat for your senses as well as your lips. It imparts shimmer to the lips and imparts a beautiful shine which will make your lips look great. It basically acts like a highlighter on the lips. Not too shiny to make it look bad either. The fragrance of the born lippy is enchanting and will invigorate your senses.

My experience with The Body Shop Born Lippy Satsuma Shimmer

Packaging

It comes in a very cute tub like structure and the lid can be opened to reveal the product, which can be swiped on the lips using bare hands, which increases the chances of contamination.

Fragrance

It smells as if fresh oranges have been processed to extract orange oil which is absolutely divine and refreshing.

Experience

I love products that smell good, so I was attracted to the fragrance of the lip shimmer. I was told that it will add sparkle to my lips thereby making them appear fuller and glossier. I was very impressed with this and purchased the lip balm. I was actually happy with it owing to the record of bad experiences I have had with body shop lip butter. This product does what it claims. It imparts a little bit of sheen to the lips and has an amazing smell. The fragrance is really very refreshing and invigorating. It doesn’t really do anything like moisturizing the lips or hydrating them. Also, if this product is used for a long time, it attracts dirt. I like this lip shimmer only because of its fragrance; otherwise, I wouldn’t really be using it. Also, it’s not worth the price and doesn’t really have distinguishable shimmery particles after application on the lips.

Overall performance of The Body Shop Born Lippy Satsuma Shimmer

Pros

  • Cute packaging
  • Great fragrance
  • Not sticky

Cons

  • Doesn’t moisturize
  • Attracts dirt even though it is not sticky
  • Sometimes chaps my lips
  • Expensive
  • Doesn’t impart any shine as such

Would I repurchase or recommend?

No. I won’t repurchase this product since there is much product in the market which gives a shine to the lips without costing this much. I would only recommend it to people who love products that have a fragrance associated with it. When I use this lip shimmer under any lipstick which is also shimmery, it doesn’t really help pop out the color of the lipsticks better. I would give this Satsuma shimmer lippy a 2/5 owing to its pros and cons.
