Burt's Bees New Lipsticks #LipstickThatlovesyouback - Review

March 24, 2017

Burt's Bees started to create lip products in 1991 with the company's best selling lip balm that was created from a 19th Century recipe. Since then Burt's Bees have continued to launch more and more products using natural ingredients that have become customer favourites all over the world.

Recently Burt's Bees launched a new range of lipsticks and I was sent a couple to try out, I was happy to receive two darker shades; *522 Crimson Coast and *531 Juniper Water, both of which have red and purple tones in them.

The new range of lipsticks in a nutshell; has 18 shades to choose from, are all 100% natural, have intense full coverage colour, 8 hours of moisture and smooth/satin finishes. Each lipstick contains moisturising ingredients including Raspberry Seed Oil, Vitamin E, Beeswax and Moringa Oil, these help to keep your lips moisturised, soft and smooth whilst not drying out your lips. Even the packaging is made from recycled plastic, this gives the whole product a natural feel. I've been trying out both the lipsticks I was sent over the past few weeks and now can tell you what I think.

First of all these shades are right up my street being plum/red shades which are my go to lipstick colours; I personally feel more comfortable in darker shades of lipstick. There is some nude and pink shades in the range for everyone who likes a lighter colour on their lips. I am really happy the lipsticks are 100% natural, its good to know were the ingredients are from and that they aren't harming anything.

The Crimson Coast lipstick is a beautiful red shade that will work with any makeup look, I personally think everyone can rock a red lip. This lipstick can be built up on your lips for a more intense shade or worn as a sheer but still colourful lipstick with just one application.

The second shade is the Juniper Water which is the plum shade and my favourite of the two. It's a lovely shade with fuchsia undertones and again can be built up for a more intense shade just like the Crimson Coast. 

I've worn both lipsticks a few times and with and without lip liner, I found that without a liner I did have a bit of lipstick bleed on my lips so a liner would be needed to get the most out of the product. Application was smooth and felt just like putting on a lip balm, I could feel the moisturising elements straight away. As for longevity I would of preferred the lipsticks to stay on for longer but they lasted around 4-5 hours before I needed to reapply and although the colour had faded by this time it was still visible as a tint on my lips. At the end of day after wearing both lipsticks, my lips did feel softer so I'm happy with them as some lipsticks do dry your lips out; these are a good products for shade choice, adding moisture and they look great when worn. 

Have you guys tried these new lipsticks from Burt's Bees???
