Review – Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon x

Posted on: November 21, 2014 by Yummo Mummo

I had been hearing great things about Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon and was ready to give it a try for myself. As you know, I am a lipstick lover so I’m always up for trying a new lipstick, but I am also very picky when it comes to any lipstick making my list.
It was relatively inexpensive, I chose the color ‘Hawaiian Smolder’ and at just under $10 at CVS, I think it’s reasonable. What I like most are the ingredients and I love these health facts – Phthalate-Free, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate Free, Paraben-Free. It comes in six creamy, full-coverage shades of matte lip color in a modern crayon for truly beautiful lip color. Lightweight moisture for a comfortable, everyday wear formula infused with Shea Butter, Kendi Oil, and Jojoba Oil. It’s color that truly cares for your lips. Some more tidbits for your reading pleasure:
• Creamy matte color and moisture-rich wear
• For everyday wear either alone or layered under a Lip Gloss or Lip Shine
• Precise application in a playful form without the hassle and mess of sharpening
• No added flavor or fragrance
• Hydrates and moisturizes lips, leaving them feeling soft and smooth

So I was all dressed up and out for the morning at a ‘Gratitude Brunch’ to importantly reflect how grateful I feel at this time of year as Thanksgiving is next week. And I myself, am grateful for so much, but one thing on that list is lipstick, I am grateful for how lipstick makes me feel, it makes me feel awesome!

You wind up at the end when you ready for more, just like a regular lipstick but this is in the shape of a crayon.
Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon in Hawaiian Smolder.  $10. I bought mine at CVS!
And I love the tamper-free packaging.

I feel naked without my lipstick on. I am wearing Hawaiian Smolder.

 

Here I am after wearing it a few hours. Still subtly there.

There is no fragrance and it survived the morning well. Our lips are busy things and we need a lipstick that will stick with us through the morning. Mine enjoyed a lovely cup of coffee, a yummy glass of Mimosa at the brunch, some delicious snacks and a loving kiss goodbye from my husband! I think it is perfect for a person who is wanting a subtle lipstick that ticks all the boxes in the way of ingredients and philosophy. I would be keen to try their darker/redder tones as that’s more my style but this is what they had on the stand at time I purchased.

Got a comment? You know where it goes, down below! Keep on Stylin!
