Burt’s Bees Lipstick Review

They’re here! One of our favorite all-natural beauty brands has released a stunning array of lipsticks in 14 tempting hues.

When Burt’s came out with their collection of jumbo lip pencils I was instantly hooked and when I saw these babies lining drugstore shelves I knew I had to try them! The lipsticks come in long tubes with cute honeycomb caps and the classic yet trendy shade selection reflects the simplicity of the brand - pinks, reds coral and nude.

Like all the makeup from Burt's Bees, these lipsticks aren’t just about pretty pops of color, they also replenish the skin with nourishing Shea butter, Moringa, Sunflower, Castor oil, Beeswax, Raspberry Seed Oil and Vitamin E to soften and condition your lips all day. This fabulous formula is ultra lightweight and moisturizing so lips feel smooth, supple and restored while looking bright and radiant. Like the famous lip balms, they keep your pout chap-free and healthy with a touch of glam for good measure.

The lush texture glides on effortlessly and the pigmentation of the first layer or two is actually quite sheer and satiny with luminous shine. If you prefer more intensity you can enhance the color to medium coverage for a bold, rich finish.

Many of the hues I chose are quite deep and reminiscent of fall but I can’t seem to stay away from the seductive berries, wines, pinks and red tones that appear so alluring on the lips! For summer soirees and a night on the town these pretty colors compliment your skin and glowing bronzers with warm, flattering undertones. I’ve also discovered that they fade very nicely so you can even blend them lightly on the cheeks to create a stain and wear your favorite shades as blush.

Although the pigment is meant to stay put for up to 8 hours, like most creamy lipsticks they are prone to a bit of transfer. I find that using a lip primer helps reinforce the colors but they tend not to feather or bleed and once applied the moist formula feels so comfortable you may even forget you have it on!
