Don’t ask me why I had low expectations for the Burt’s Bees Lipsticks but I’ve had them sitting on my desk for a while, eyeing them unenthusiastically. But, as is the way, they turn out to be really rather good!
First of all, they’re just very creamy in texture – they feel protective and balmy but have the look of a mid-pigment, satin lipstick. They’re not hugely colour saturated so you don’t scare yourself with a very high colour lip – they’re much more understated than that, but still have enough pigment to be very much present. I also like that there are plenty of nude/natural shades – a great everyday wear that won’t dry out your lips.
Another chilly arm swatch I’m afraid! Shades from bottom to top are: Lily Lake, Orchid Ocean, Sunset Cruise, Ruby Ripple, Ruby Ripple (again..sorry.. I didn’t realise I had two exactly the same!), Doused Rose, Juniper Water, Tulip Tide and Russet River. I’m laughing a bit at ‘doused rose’.. that just doesn’t sound good… more plant ailment than luscious lip colour. My roses have got douse. I’ll shut up.
The Ultimate Beauty Advent Calendar
The SpaceNK Advent calendar is almost here, pre-order for shipment on the 15th October with beauty gifts, worth over £700, from La Mer, Augustinus Bader, Rose Inc and more.
The Burt’s Bees Lipsticks are £9.99 – I think that’s pretty good value for a very decent everyday wear, plus they’re infused with Moringa Oil and Raspberry Seed Oils. Obviously, not suitable for vegans because of the beeswax.
