I am always legging behind with the new launch swatches and the story behind it is that – as soon as there are new launches and i can see swatches of all shades floating everywhere which is good if you are sent PR package. But if you have to buy it on your own then you have 1 or 2 shades and that kinda kills my vibe. Then I decide to take my time, enjoy the launch for some time and then make my mind and review it or rather wait for it to come on sale 😉 . Without any further delay presenting The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid Taipei Orchid 020 Review & Swatches…

My experience with The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid Taipei Orchid 020:
The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid Taipei Orchid 020 comes in a color coded plastic tube with doe-foot applicator, typical liquid lipstick kinda packaging. It is very sleek and lightweight and can easily fit in your pocket. I love the applicator a lot, it is sleek, picks up perfect amount of product and gives precise application.
The formula of The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid Taipei Orchid 020 is very fluffy mousse like and pigmentation is bang on in 1-2 swipes which is really fantastic. Layering it up is easy and does not feel heavy or flaky. It dries down to a matte finish which can be bothersome for the ones with dry lips. Make sure you prep your lips beforehand. These are not too drying if you moisturize your lips beforehand.
The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid Taipei Orchid 020 is gorgeous pale pink which can suit NC35 and lighter skin tones a lot but it might washout the darker skintones. I absolutely love this color and sometimes apply it on my cheeks as well to give them a natural wintery flush :).
This stays for good 5-6 hours with no transfer and minimal nipping and sipping but it definitely can not survive a full fledged oily meal. Reapplication and removal both are pretty easy with this one.

The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid Taipei Orchid 020 FOTD:
No makeup just lipcolor. Skintone in summer time- NC35.
Final Verdict: 4.5/5
The Body Shop Matte Lip Liquid Taipei Orchid 020 is recommended for medium to fair skintones and was among 12 shades launched in India but now I can see only 11 shades and can not see this listed. But I would recommend the range to everyone. I love how comfortable these go on lips and how well pigmented these are, even the light shade like this doesn’t go patchy. Also you are getting 8ml(More than usual 5-6ml in most liquid lipsticks) product for 645/- INR which makes it a good buy. Go and choose a color that suits you, you might even get it on discount given the sale season is on :).
