The only thing better than the luscious texture and healing emollients is the gorgeous shade selection. There are 12 trendy hues to choose from ranging from rich berry, vivacious red, mauve, rose, coral and nude – I love them all!
The velvety pigments contain conditioning apricot and babassu oil blended with shea butter and essential fatty acids that deeply moisturize, soften and protect. If you really want your pout to pop, apply generous layers to enhance opaqueness while using the applicator point to define and accentuate. The glistening shine has a plumping effect for a little extra drama.
Like most cream formulas, expect some transfer with extended wear and during meals. Aside from having to reapply throughout the day, there is minimal smudging and no staining.
The rich autumn colors are my favorite but the coverage and consistency seems to vary. Some shades are dense and apply prominently in one coat while others are sheer, a tad slippery and vivid – similar to saturated lip gloss. I wouldn’t classify every pigment as “liquid lipstick” but they are pretty.
The pink tones are soft, easy to wear and flattering on all complexions.
In the neutral spectrum there are 3 hues that range from light, medium and deep – a little something for everyone.
If you’re looking for chemical-free lipstick that looks great and feels fantastic, you should definitely give these a try. The formula isn’t flawless but the organic extracts nourish dry lips in all climates and won’t melt in your purse.
The lipsticks retail for $15.99 each at Whole Foods, Shoppers Drug Mart, amazon.ca, Walmart, London Drugs and well.ca. You can also check them out at burtsbees.ca.
