Hello my little buttons!
As summer is approaching I’m all about tinted lip balms and lipstains. I found this little beauty at my mums house, she a wonderful, yet fussy lady and if she likes something it tends to be good. So of course I ‘borrowed’ it. Here’s my quick little review of what I thought!
This tinted lip balm contains shea butter and botanical waxes making it super hydrating for the lips. It is priced at £5.99 and is avalible in 6 shades promising 8 hour moisturisation. The sheer wash of colour is beautiful, you can see it’s there but it’s not so over powering that you worry it’s slipping about your face. I have the shade Red Delilah which is a browny red toned colour.
It feels lovely on the lips and lasts longer than many other balms I’ve tried. Although it looks like a chap stick you can tell straight away it is far more nourishing and my lips feel softer after it has soaked in and faded away. I would definitely recommend this product and think I might have to buy some more shades!!! I have to say I becoming more and more impressed with Burts Bees every product I have tried so far I have loved, they never disappoint.
I’d love to hear in the comments below whats your favourite Burts Bees product?
Hello my little buttons!
Here’s my review of Burts Bees Matte Lip Crayon in the shade ‘Hawiaiian Smolder’ as well as a lip gloss in the shade ‘Spring Splender.’ The Crayons are priced at £8.99 and avalible in 6 shades, the Lipgloss is also £8.99 and avalible in 12 shades. The packaging is adorable, I love how a bee hive pattern has been incorporated into the lids. The formula of the crayon is pigmented, smooth and feels comfy to wear, very creamy like a lip balm. The quality of the product really speak for itself, the colour lasts for ages, it doesn’t bleed out all over your face and unlike most lip Crayons after an hour or so of wear it doesn’t bunch up on the lips or leave that dreaded ‘lip linner’ ring around your mouth. The colour sinks into your lips gradually which is a lot more flattering and natural looking! The colour itself is pretty and perfect for spring, it would also look great on nearly all skin tones. I usually feel a bit self contious wearing bright colours on my lips incase they get on my teeth but I didn’t get that feeling at all with this lip crayon, it stayed nicely in place where I wanted it to. Another bonus of the lip crayon is how handy it is to pop in your handbag and use on the go. It also contains 100% natural ingredients, some of which are very nourishing such as shea butter and kendi oil which is great as I know my lips won’t become dried out and sore. It would say it’s fairly matte but there is still a slight shine, although i don’t mind this it’s almost as if a matte lipstick and a lip balm had a baby! I really enjoyed this product and had to hold myself back from buying all the colours. Pigmented comfy colour with lip balm properties, perfection! In my eyes these are a total win, I would recommend to anyone and everyone. Here are the swatches of the Crayon and Lipgloss:
Now onto the Lipgloss! It does have a slight pearl shimmer to it but doesn’t massively transfer onto the lips, it can potentially be seen close up in natural light if you were really looking for it but you won’t look like a disco ball in the slightest. The formula is shiney and slick, it feels more balmy than sticky which is a big thumbs up in my book I hate super sticky lipglosses! It contains 100% natural products and has a big boost of natural oils to leave your lips feeling hydrated and nourished as well as super glossy. It has a nice wash of colour that would look good over most lipsticks but also can stand on its own as a subtle sheen balmy product. It lasts fairly well as far as lipglosses go so I was pleased with this product too, it’s great to throw in my handbag if I need a light, pop of colour or if my lips are sore when im out and about. I really love that these products are helping my lips not hurting them, I have noticed my lips haven’t been getting as sore and peely even after spending all day out in the cold.
I think by now you can tell how much I love these little beauties!!! Here’s a few photos of how the colours can look in different lights on the lips!
