Review: The Body Shop Lipliner in 06 Mahogany

This is my Holy Grail Status Lip liner.

For some foundation is a product they can’t live without, for me its lip liner!
I recently popped into The Body Shop and was told by the sales assistant that they had a buy one get one half offer on everything in store so I picked up my trusty blemish fade night cream and a lip liner in 06 Mahogany Link! I didn’t swatch the colour in store as they had no tester but it was the darkest shade they had. For £4.00 on offer I thought I might aswell give it a go. I didn’t have high expectations for it BUT holy moly it’s amazing!

Being a heavily tanned/dark skin asian woman I have been cursed blessed with quite dark purplish brown pigmented lips. Lips that cannot be seen in public without anything on them! I find lip liner works best to hide the obscenity that is my colour lips and have found that reddy browns work best with my skin tone.  This is the perfect browny red for my lips and totally cancels out all the fugly of my natural lip tone. I also love that I can wear it on its as own as seen in the picture below.
Please ignore the bush excuse of my hair to the left. Shall I add a picture or two of a swatch on my hand to be professional? Why yes I SHALL!
I know my skin colour differs from my hand to my face. I am a walking patchy tone kid! I digress, I love love love this product! The consistency is not too creamy which I love as it doesn’t allow for smudging. But yet it's not too drying, for being a matte finish this is a rarity! And this baby lasts all day on the lips, it even lasted through a KFC hot wing meal. If anything can last through the grease of a KFC chicken waang then it's a keeper..or shall I say repurchaser?

I will definitely be repurchasing this again even for the full price of £8.
Can I get a virtual High 5 for my first review! Ahhh yeah!
