The Body Shop has lots of good deals at this time of the year! I got this at almost half price with my membership card and current discounts. I was looking for a blue-based red lip gloss, and after trying out almost everything available, #15 Cherry Glimmer is the only one that fits the bill.

What it is:
An ultra-shiny, sheer tinted, wet-look lip gloss that offers intense moisturization and conditioning for the lips. Each is subtly scented with a passion fruit fragrance.

Normally, I don’t buy makeup from the Body Shop; but nowadays, because my regular go-to brands are tested on animals, I started to explore The Body Shop’s other products (I love their body butters). This is my first makeup purchase from the Body Shop, and it was good. The gloss was exactly as described – I find that long after I removed the gloss or blotted it off before eating, my lips felt very moisturized. The fruity fragrance was a nice touch too. However, as far as lip glosses go, I do find that the ones that stay put and stay long usually are sticky, and this one is no exception. It is really glossy, but also sticky.

For the price and being cruelty free, this is a good product. The Cherry Glimmer shade pictured here is a cherry red (blue based), which is a very nice medium red that goes on a little sheer (not completely sheer).
