New In: Burts Bees Lipsticks + Crayons
Burts Bees is one of my favourite brands, I love their skincare and especially their lip balms which I use on a daily basis. I've already reviewed some of their lip products but they have recently brought out some new lipsticks and new gloss crayons; I was very kindly sent a few to try out!

The new Burts Bees Natural Lipsticks which contain beeswax, moringa oil, raspberry seed oil and vitamin E. There are 18 shades to choose from, all of which claim a 8 hour wear time, and a smooth, satin finish. Not only are the lipsticks natural but the packaging is recycle plastic, so a great natural and ethical choice!

The new lipstick packaging is just gorgeous, unique and so pretty; I love the honeycomb like design on the lid which also shows the shade of the lipstick. The tubes are really lightweight so they'd be great for travelling. I like the packaging of the new Burts Bees Lip Crayons which features a easy to use twist up tube.

The Burts Bees Gloss Lip Crayons contain moisturising shea butter, jojoba oil and kendi oil, as with the lipsticks, these lip crayons are 100% natural. They claim mess proof application, hydration and smooth lips for up to 8 hours and a sheer, glossy finish.

I love the bullet style of these lip crayons as they make application smooth, comfortable and light on the lips. The formula is glossy and extremely comfortable as with the lipsticks. The shade Bordeaux Vines is a deep blackberry shade that would be perfect for the colder months. One point that surprised me about these lip crayons is the pigmentation - I thought it would be sheer but as you can see from the photographs, it's far from sheer. The only problem I have with this because of the glossy formula, it is very difficult to get an even application or a neat application around the lip line.

*Burts Bees Natural Lipstick in 502 Suede Splash (£9.99, 3.4g)
I was able to choose a couple of shades from the new range and I'm SO happy with the shades I chose as they are both perfect for everyday and so natural, 'my lips but better' looking. The formula is creamy, pigmented, smooth and comfortable. The shade Suede Splash is the perfect, natural colour is is very similar to my own but glossier and slightly darker. Compared to the similar Blush Basin shade, it's more terracotta and warmer, whereas Blush Basin is much pinker. It's definitely my favourite shade!

As with the previous shade, it's perfect for everyday and I know I will get so much use out of both the lipstick shades! The Blush Basin shade will be a hit with everyone I think as it's such a universally flattering natural pink shade that isn't too light, too pink or too bright. Both shades are spring essentials and a lifesaver for my very dry winter lips. The longevity for both is fairly good but it doesn't last incredibly well through eating or drinking.

Now, baby pinks really aren't my thing as against my very pale skin and dark hair it does;t look right and I find that baby pinks and lighter shades can make my teeth look yellow...well, when I say yellow I mean the colour of Jeremy Clarksons teeth *not a good look*. The formula is smooth and comfortable but as with the Bordeaux Vine shade is it a bit patchy, uneven and it also looks slightly chalky on my dry lips. The longevity of the lip colours isn't great as transfer is incredibly easy.

Overall, I adore both of the lipsticks and I cannot recommend them enough! The Suede Splash and Blush Basin shades are perfection! The gloss lip colours on the other hand are a little patchy and they don't have the best longevity, however they're so comfortable, lightweight and moisturising. For the lip colours I'd have to rate them: ★★★☆☆ but for the amazing new lipsticks I'd rate them: ★★★★★, 5/5!

Have you tried anything from Burts Bees? What do you think of the new lip colours and lipsticks?

  1. I really need to try the lipsticks. I have the crayons but the scent is a little off putting so fingers crossed the lipsticks have a nicer scent xx

  5. Their beeswax lip balm is my staple, I can't go anywhere without it, it's the only one that does the job for me! Although I constantly seem to be buying it as i'm always losing it! All these colours you've tried look gorgeous on you especially that deep berry in the first picture. Shame you said some of them are a bit patchy though. I need to find out where I can try these, as I definitely want to pick up a few.

  14. I've only ever tried the Burt's Bees lip balms and I love them, so I can imagine their lipsticks would be great too. I'm over the matte lip trend and much prefer a glossier finish for Spring, so I'll have to try out Suede Splash, it looks lovely!
