Burts Bees – Lip Crayons
This post may contain affiliate links.
If you’re a regular reader of Beauty Best Friend then you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of Burt’s Bees. I like everything that they stand for, their beeswax lip balms are second to none and I use their natural Baby Bee range on my little girl. Over the past few years they’ve progressed their lip products and now offer a range of lip colour items – their Lip Shimmer in Guava was one of the first products that I ever reviewed on my blog!
Burt’s Bees Lip Crayons* are a range of 6 lip colour crayons made from 100% natural ingredients. They are infused with Shea Butter, Kendi Oil, and Jojoba Oil, and of course they include beeswax too.
The chunky crayon format is one that I like but feels a bit different from the other Burt’s Bees lip products of the past. It makes the colour easy to apply, although I recommend using a lip liner first if you want a really defined lip as it can be tricky getting this effect from a lip crayon.
The colour feels really creamy and balmy as it’s applied, but it gives quite a matt effect once it’s on the lip. I usually prefer a more glossy lip but as the colour is quite subtle I don’t mind the matt finish too much, plus it stays put on the lips forever. I also like the fact that there’s no flavour or scent, so many lipsticks these days are brimming with a plastic-y vanilla or fruity flavouring which isn’t really needed if you ask me.
The two crayons that I was sent to try were in the shades Sedona Sands and Carolina Coast. In the swatch image above Sedona Sands is on the left, and Carolina Coast is on the right.
As you can see from the images above Sedona Sands is a neutral brown shade with an orangey touch. Carolina Coast is a raspberry pink shade, just the sort of colour that I wear all the time – although I’ve been to North Carolina and I don’t remember the coast being this colour!
I really love the honeycomb texture print on the clear lids, a really cute finishing touch I think! What are your favourite Burt’s Bees products?
Lip Crayons are priced at £8.99 each, available from Burt’s Bees.
