This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Burt’s Bees for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
I’ve loved Burt’s Bees lip balm for years; it’s a staple in my purse. My husband uses it, and my kids do too. In fact, Burt’s Bees has been a brand we love for a long time. I feel good about the natural ingredients used in its products, and that’s hard to find nowadays. They stay true to a simple – and great – idea: what you put on your body should be made from ingredients you can spell and pronounce.
They have more than 150 products for almost every part of your lips, hair and skin, with a mission is to make people lives better everyday, naturally. We’ve used their baby products on all three of our kids, all because they’re a brand we truly trust. I love knowing that Burt’s Bees is natural at its core, and that gives me confidence in using their products for myself and for my whole family.
And now there’s another product from Burt’s Bees I can love: new Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lipsticks deliver luscious, bold color you’ll love, along with naturally moisturizing ingredients that love your lips in return.
The lipsticks have a smooth, satin finish and 14 versatile shades. They soften and condition lips all day long, thanks to a natural formula featuring Beeswax, Moringa Oil and Raspberry Seed Oil. They provide a creamy and lightweight coverage that doesn’t feel heavy like many other lipsticks. And they’re 100% natural, which makes me feel good about wearing it all day.
Burt’s Bees lipsticks are available at Target, and I went to ours to pick up a few shades for myself. I decided to get two very different colors and see what I thought of each. I purchased this darker red shade, called Scarlet Soaked:
and a lighter pink shade with violet tones called Tulip Tide:
Both shades are nicely saturated, but I was pleasantly surprised when I put them on. I’ve had a hard time finding a red lipstick that doesn’t overpower my fair skin and look like way too much color, but the Scarlet Soaked gives vibrancy while still being nice and sheer. It looks like a natural reddening of my lips, which is exactly what I want. I can see using this shade for all sorts of special occasions when I really want my makeup to pack a punch.
Here’s how I look with each of the colors on:
The Tulip Tide shade is very different from what I normally go for, but I wanted to try something new. I’m glad I did, because again I was very happy to discover that the lipstick gave a subtle and natural hue to my lips. This is a great color for day-to-day wear and is a nice and delicate shade.
As you can see, though, there are SO many different great colors to pick from, in four different categories: Neutrals, Berries/Mauves, Pinks/Corals, and Reds. I can’t wait to try some of the neutral shades, but our Target was sold out of many shades already, so I’ll have to wait for them to restock.
Head on over to your Target and scope out the shades of Burt’s Bees lipsticks for yourself! Your lips will thank you.
Thanks for the tip on Burt’s Bees lipstick. Bought some at our local HEB store this weekend and I love it!
