Burt’s Bees Gloss Lip Crayon ($9) are a new chubby lip crayon that have the shine of a lipgloss and are packed with moisturizing ingridents for your lips like Jojoba Oil, Kendi Oil, and Shea Butter.
Let’s take a look at my review and swatches!
Burt’s Bees Gloss Lip Crayon are a re-release of Burt’s Bees original Lip Crayons that launched in 2014. Those crayons were matte in finish so, the new Burt’s Bees Gloss Lip Crayons are a welcome addition in my opinion as a prefer a glossier finish myself. Gloss Lip Crayons are one of three new releases from Burt’s Bees for Spring 2017 which also includes the new Tinted Lip Oil and Flavor Crystal Lip Balms that I reviewed in prior posts.
I sound like a broken record by now but I have to admit lip crayons are a timeless trend for me. I simply love them and no matter how many I have I’m always looking for new ones to try out. I love the ease of application, I love I can slide them on and get color, shine, and moisture in a single swipe.
Burt’s Bees hit it out of the park with this formula. These are incredibly pigmented and apply like a gel lipstick of some sort with a lovely moisturizing feel on lips that’s creamy but not thick nor uncomfortable. They don’t have a completely shiny finish but they have a bit of a sheen to them that gives them that light clear lipgloss look. I find the formula lightly moisturizing but it was enough hydration to keep my lips pleasantly moist and soft throughout the first two hours of the wear but it wore away at around hour four along with the color.
One of the most impressive aspects of the crayon is how pigmented the colors are. I was so excited that a single pass gave my lips opaque coverage. This is particularly exciting because Burt’s Bees describes them as being sheer but they are anything but! They have no flavor nor any fragrance.
If you’re looking for moisture, a hint of shine, and plenty of color, you’re sure to adore the Burt’s Bees Gloss Lip Crayon formula!
