I’ve posted quite a bit on the blog about my love of all the Burt’s Bees lippies. I’ve gotten all of my friends obsessed, just this morning (well, yesterday now, this was on Tuesday) at work there was an extended debate between 2 of my nurses about whether the Lip Crayon or Tinted Balm was better. Yes, my work here is done. And in case you’re wondering, I’m of the opinion that there is no real correct answer there, I like both. The answer is both.
A few months ago, I found out that Burt’s Bees was going to be releasing a traditional lipstick. YES! More Burt’s Bees Lippies! And I have to admit that the first day I saw them in person (which was the day before they all arrived at my doorstep), I spent a good 10 minutes checking out the colors and playing with the testers.
I love these lipsticks, and my friends have been seeking them out in stores because I’m talking about them so much. They come in a very substantial plastic tube, I love the honeycomb detailing on the outside of the case!
The lipsticks are all well pigmented and very smooth, they do feel hydrating. Because my lips are somewhat on the thin side (ok, they’re very thin), I try to always use hydrating lipsticks that aren’t matte. These lipsticks have a satin finish, which I love.
There are 14 shades in all, which means that there is definitely one that works for pretty much any occasion. While there are a lot of great shades, there are 3 that I’ve been reaching for most often! These three work pretty much no matter what. A great pink-nude tone, a bright pink and a red. They work for running errands, out to dinner and going to work. Which color is your go-to?
