It’s finally March! I’m definitely feeling Spring is on it’s way, so it’s time to inject some colour into our lives again! (yay). This week I thought I’d show you these lovely new lipsticks from Burt’s Bees which arrived to my mailbox – not only are these as moisturising as a lip balm but they are 100% natural and reasonably priced at £9.99. The Burt’s Bees natural lipsticks are –
~ available in 18 shades
~ smooth, satin/hydrated finish
~ 8 hour moisture
~ contains Vitamin E, Beeswax, Moringa Oil, and Raspberry Seed Oil
~ made from 60% recycled materials
These are easy both to apply and to wear – these have a comfortable, hydrating finish and a buildable, opaque pigment which makes them wearable for day or evening. These definitely do not have mega long-lasting staying power, as they have a glossy hydrating finish rather than matte, so you’d need to reapply after eating or a few hours, but as I’m an obsessive lip-reapplier that doesn’t bother me. As these have a sheerness to them they wear by gradually fading rather than drying out, and the moisture definitely stays even when the colour begins to fade. I know everyone is still having a matte moment, but the flatness and dryness of a matte doesn’t always do it for me – my day to day will forever be a glossy finish. Forget a liner – keep these soft for a natural finish.
These are also a good price at £9.99 – bridging the gap between high end and high street, and there’s plenty of modern, wearable but trend led colours – with berries, natural pinks, fuchsias, nudes, damsons and reds to choose from. These would be gorgeous for bridal or bridesmaids too – perfect texture for regular quick reapplication throughout the day, and hydrating enough to not dry out the lips.
