Lip Color: Why Natural Matters

By Ange of

Ever since I was a little girl my favorite piece of makeup to play with has been lipstick. As I’ve grown into a woman, that hasn’t changed. Lipstick is absolutely still my favorite. I’m always on the lookout when brands are coming out with something new.

Burt’s Bees is a brand that I love, and they definitely have a presence on Hairspray and Highheels, one of the reasons is that they stay true to a very simple idea: what you put on your body should be made from ingredients you can spell and pronounce. I feel like when it comes to makeup, especially lipstick, this is super important. This way of doing things has helped them become of the world’s leading natural personal care companies, they’ve got tons of products for every part of your lips, hair and skin. Their mission is to make peoples’ lives better everyday, naturally. They certainly achieve that for me.

Burt’s Bees has launched a lipstick that loves you back. These 100% Natural Lipsticks deliver rich, bold color that I love and I’m sure you will too if you’re a lipstick lover like me. One of my absolute favorite parts of these lipsticks that I noticed almost immediately is how moisturizing they are. When we are living in a world of matte lipsticks that are so drying, it’s refreshing to see something from a brand like Burt’s Bees that give us a beautiful pop of color while taking care to keep our lips moisturized and looking great.

There are 14 manufactured shades in the entire collection from Burt’s Bees. I definitely have a type when it comes to lippies. I like very neutral nudes and mauve shades. I tend to stick myself in a little box and pick out shades to fit my personality so I grabbed some of my favorite shades and one that let me step outside the box as well. Each shade has a smooth, satin finish. And wearing them all day long is not an issue because they each soften and condition your lips, thanks to a natural formula featuring Beeswax, Moringa Oil and Raspberry Seed Oil.

Imagine a super hydrating lipstick that will moisturize your dry lips for 8 hours. That is Burt’s Bees Lipsticks. They’re full coverage and beautifully pigmented. And they’re super creamy and lightweight. Moringa oil is full of essential fatty avids and helps to soften and condition skin, while Raspberry Seed Oil improves skin elasticity, keeping your lips feeling lovely.

They’re great for everday wear because of how moisturizing they are. The wear time is absolutely amazing, full color and pigment with almost no touch ups for almost 8 hours. And when you do need to touch up, the Burt’s Bees lipstick applies beautifully.

And I just want to talk about the packaging for a second, it’s super sleek and cute. And being that I am a fan of packaging, these definitely get two thumbs up in my book. So pretty, and I love how they incorporate the beehive into the caps of the lipsticks.

So from top to bottom, the shades I chose, are Suede Splash, Tulip Tide, Nile Nude, Lily Lake and Blush Basin. Gorgeous, right? And I mean, that pigment is absolutely amazing. I barely swiped and I had so much color. And they’re long-lasting and natural, it doesn’t get any better.
