The body shop Smoky poppy body lotion and Lip&Cheek velvet stick

Our NEW Limited Edition Smoky Poppy Body Care is enriched with real, hand-picked poppy flowers from the Ankara region of Turkey. This sensual and indulgent range is infused with a seductive, euphoric scent that will leave you longing for more. The sensual seduction of Smoky Poppy makeup means you’re never more than a sweep away from seduction.

Smoky poppy body lotion is very lightweight and absorbs quickly. It has pretty strong floral scent right after the application but it dries down much softer. It is definitely sensual exotic kind of floral. I would call this kind of a scent more of a “grown up” – it is something different than what we are used to from The body shop. It is sexy, warm, seductive. Since my skin is very dry I need more hydration – I would prefer body butter from the same line. 
Poppies are also known to symbolize love and fertility. I think the whole concept is beautiful beginning with the packaging – red and black! The body shop has really outdone itself with this one. i haven’t seen more beautiful packaging in a long time.

Velvet lip and cheek stick is new kind of product for me. I am not really into lip stains since they are always drying and that combined with my already terribly dry lips would look and feel like a disaster. Velvet stick suprised me with it’s balmy texture – goes on easily and feels moisturizing but doesn’t have a “slip” like balms do. When it sets it looks matte. But the main thing about this is INSANE staying power. I needed good makeup remover to take it off my lips and 24 hours later it is still on my hand after multiple hand washing, taking shower and washing my hair – yes it is still there! 
Color wise on me it turned dark purple with a hint of burgundy (note that on my lips turns much darker than on my hand on the swatch below).
