Burt's Bees has asked me to share how I change up my lippies throughout the day. When do I refresh? When do I change things up?
I have to be honest and say that I rarely wear the same lippie all day long. I usually have a collection in my jeans pocket (or white coat pocket if I'm working that day), and I use each product very specifically. I have an actual plan!
For me, it all starts with the most basic lip balm, the Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm. I put it on as I apply lotion in the morning. It really moisturizes my lips while I dry and style my hair as well as apply makeup. It also seems to be an amazing primer under lip gloss! A light layer of this lip balm under any gloss will make the gloss last for hours (that's your pro lip tip of the day, just FYI). After that, I typically use a variety of pink and nude toned lippies. I've really found that this color combination works with my pale skin, making me look more awake! You can find colors that work for this with the Burt's Bees Shade Finder for their Lip Color Products.
Recently, I've been starting the day with applying the Lip Crayon once my makeup is complete. My favorite shade is the Carolina Coast seen here (swatch #1). It's a perfect mid-tone pink, and despite sipping on coffee all morning it should last until late morning.
As my lip crayon finally starts to wear off, I start reaching for products to reapply while on the go. If I'm at home that means I'm with my two girls, so I really need something fast and easy to apply. I've found that the Lip Shines offer just enough color and I can swipe them on without needing to worry about perfect application! Peachy (swatch #5) is the one I've been reaching for most often. I really love the neutral shade layered over the pinker tone of Carolina Coast.
If I'm at work, I often carry two products in my white coat pocket. First, a tinted lip balm (Honeysuckle, #2) to provide a little color. Just like before, I love to layer pink and more neutral, so I often pair it with Ocean Sunrise Lipgloss (#3). The lip balm base helps the lip gloss last a lot longer, and the combination of pink and neutral/tan works really well with my pale complexion.
Finally, I can't even tell you how many tubes of Champagne Lip Shimmer (#4) I own! It offers very little color, mostly it has just the right shimmer color for layering over any other lippie. I love to carry it with me for quick reapplication, particularly during the winter when I feel like my lips are dry.
Am I the only one that carries a big selection of lip products with them? What do you do?
