Burt’s Bees is giving us something to buzz about!!
Long known for its beloved original clear lip balm with tingly peppermint flavor (which Senor Lechuga here cannot get enough of), Burt’s Bees has set it sights on color.
In keeping with the brand’s heritage, the new lip launch plus the reformulations and shade extensions are all 100% natural and cruelty-free.
So here’s the skinny….
The tinted lip balms are now available in 4 new shades. We tested Sweet Violet on Lil MIss V below but my personal fave (and in my purse right now) is Petunia. The tinted balms are a sheer wash of color and every single shade is super-wearable. They contain Vitamin E and Shea Butter which soften and nourish lips.
The lip shines have been reformulated and provide sheer creamy color with a semi-gloss finish. This is my favorite of the formulas. It’s perfect over lipstick or on its own. Available in 6 shades, I wear Wink to spin class and around town. Lil Miss V wears Flutter below.
And the lipgloss is brand spankin’ new. WHOA is it pigment-rich. Not at all what we expected from an all-natural brand! In fact, when we selected the three shades to test on Lil V (one in each finish, shown above in top image) we thought they were all pretty similar in color. Right??! Wrong. This gloss packs a punch. Plus, it’s comfortable on the lips thanks to moisturizing botanical oils. Color and comfort – not a bad combo. Check out Lil V in Ruby Moon!!
The lipgloss collection has 12 different shades and not all are as bold so if gloss is your preferred finish but you like a lighter lip definitely check out the full line.
And don’t forget your original clear Burt’s Bees lip balm, which is great for lip prep and as a primer for you – and as a little treat for your guy!
