Burt’s Bees Lipstick ($8.99) is a permanent 14 shade range of lipsticks the brand created that are made with Moringa and Red Raspberry Seed Oils. Wait, but is it a lipstick? It kinda reminds me of a lip balm.
I’m so picturing Burt sitting at some big desk somewhere, stroking his hipster beard, squinting his eyes, and thinking to himself, “Why is the lowly human calling my new lipstick a lip balm!?”
I have love hate relationship with Burt’s Bees Lip Crayons and I had this fear that the new lipstick collection would be matte BUT THANK YOU makeup gods they are not! But full disclosure, the packaging sucks! But more on that in a bit.
I paid $8.99 for the single shade I purchased at Ulta.com but you can snag these now at Target.com with 10% Off using promo code SHINE plus you’ll get a $5 Gift Card if you spend $25 on Burt’s Bees products. So that deal is kinda worth exploring should these interest you!
These come in an interesting lightweight tall square barrel. It’s basic but unique packaging however, the larger size might be irritating for storage since it is a bit taller than the average lipstick. Each lipstick is 0.12 oz in size. I hate it because the lipstick doesn’t swivel down all the way. For some reason or another it swivels down ALMOST completely but the tip of the lipstick is still visible which can lead to potentially slicing off a chunk when replacing the lid. Please, can everyone STOP making lipsticks that don’t swivel down completely? I’m clumsy and messy, this packaging is a disaster for klutzy people like me!
Aside from the packaging this is a fab lipstick ahem lip balm. I regret not purchasing more shades but hey, at least I can take advantage of the Target deal now. According to the brand the formula is 100% natural and contains high levels of essential fatty acids. It has a thicker, balmy like consistency that glides on beautifully and drenches lips in color and moisture. It almost feels like a treatment of some sort as through the wear of five hours my lips felt incredibly comfortable and super soft after color wore away. Color pay off is intense on the single shade I purchased with opaque color pay off at a single layer. I detected no flavor or fragrance in the formula.
They did a great job with this formula. If you have drier lips you’ll really enjoy this. Burt’s Bees Lipstick delivers moisture, beautiful color, and gorgeous wear in this formula!
Yes, do go grab them!
