Burt’s Bees has been a reliable brand to many of us beauty and makeup aficionados who trust in their luxurious products, excellent ingredients and luscious formulas. If you’re looking for lip products that nourish and protect while still producing gorgeous, light-weight color then you must try these lip crayons!
Formulated with 100% natural ingredients these large crayons are available in 6 shades which include: Carolina Coast (light pink), Hawaiian Smolder (deep berry pink), Redwood Forest (purple/plum), Niagara Overlook (orange/coral), Napa Vineyard (berry/red) and Sedona Sands (nude).
The texture of the crayons is very creamy and rich and I like that the finish is quite matte with just a touch of shine and no stickiness. The pigmentation varies by shade which caters to a variety of preferences and the texture does not accentuate dry skin.
The deeper hues produce more pigment so it is no surprise that my favorite color is Napa Vineyard! As you go through the range of pinks and plums into the light nude shades the pigmentation becomes more subtle but the texture is excellent! Although I tend to prefer vivid hues the range of color is soft and pretty making these crayons very appealing and great for all seasons.
Shea butter, jojoba and kendi oil drench lips in moisture for long-lasting hydration and comfortable wear and the crayons help condition, sooth and alleviate dry, chapped lips. You can also wear them layered under gloss if you prefer more shine and they twist-up for easy access with no sharpening required!
The smooth texture looks and feels great and the formula helps protect against environmental conditions for a soft, supple pout. When your lips aren't in the best shape and you don’t want a heavy lipstick settling into chapped skin these are a great option. The pretty colors combined with the benefits of a great lip balm makes these crayons excellent for winter and I like that the tapered shape allows you to define the lips for precise application.

If you like makeup with natural ingredients free of phthalates, chemicals, sulfates and parabens then you will love these!
