When it comes to lipsticks, I was a late bloomer but thank God, I have fully embraced it now. So when I had the chance to check out yet to be released lipsticks from all natural brand Burt’s Bees, well, I jumped at it.
When I got to the venue, it was lipstick heaven. Aside from unveiling new lipsticks and lip crayons, the brand also had its previous products on display.
I admit, I was more acquainted with Burt’s Bees lip balms, not so much with their lipsticks and lip crayons so it was a great opportunity to indulge and soak it all in. There was champagne too, doesn’t hurt right? And makeup artists on hand to help us try the various shades.
Starting with the new Natural Lipstick Collection which comes in 18 shades – 5 in pink and corals, 4 reds, 3 nudes and 6 in my favourite plums and berries. I found the lipsticks to be very rich and pigmented which shouldn’t be surprising I guess, considering it has natural moisturisers including beeswax, moringa oil and raspberry seed oil.
Aside from delivering bold colour, the lipstick also hydrate and moisturise lips for up to 8 hours. It definitely fits the tag – lipstick that loves you back appropriately. Thanks to the makeup artists at the event, I learned how two shades can be mixed to form a deeper shade or two different shades to form entirely new shades. I love that the possibilities are endless which is very exciting.
Another new release to look forward to from Burt’s Bees is their Gloss Lip Crayons (£9.99). Also all natural, made with shea butter, jojoba oil, kendi oil and community sauced beeswax. As someone who’s obsessed with plums and berry coloured lipsticks, I couldn’t choose a favourite colour – maybe the Bordeaux Vines, just don’t hold me to it because the Pacific Coast and Tahitian Sunset look pretty good too.
The Gloss Lip Crayons comes in 6 lush shades – Bordeaux Vines, Outback Oasis, Pacific Coast, Pink Lagoon, Santorini Sunrise and Tahitian Sunset.
