Hi beauties - allow me to introduce you to my new Burt's Bees mini series! I recently received a package with four sets of Burt's Bees new lip products, which includes their Tinted Lip Oils, Lipsticks, Gloss Crayons and Flavour Crystal Lip Balm. I was so excited when I received it, since I've been seeing their new lipstick commercials whenever I turn on the TV. Plus I'm a big fan of their lip balms and have been using them for years. That being said, I'm thrilled to share my thoughts and swatches of them with you guys! I've decide to split each type up into separate blog posts, that way I can go into more details without turning this post into a book and tiring out your eyes. So, let's start this mini series with Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Oils!
Tinted lip oils are one of the new lip product lines that Burt's Bees have in store for us this season (Spring 2017). They retail around $11.99CAD. You can wear them by themselves or apply them on top of your lipstick. This line has six sheer coverage, moisturizing shades available at selected natural, grocery, drug and mass retailers (i.e. Walmart, Target and Shoppers Drug Mart). These lip oils are easy to use, all you have to do is turn the pen upside down and twist the end a few times to get the colour out! With the help of each pen's soft brush applicator, the lip oil applies on smoothly and easily. And did I mention, they're lightweight and don't feel sticky on the lips?!
These lip oils are made with 100% natural ingredients. Their key ingredients are coconut oil, meadowfoam seed oil and community sourced beeswax. Not many of us may know what meadowfoam seed oil is - it's basically an oil known to be rich in fatty acids and antioxidants. These nourishing ingredients don't only keep your lips moisturized, but also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Since I've shown you the swatches in the photo above, let me show you how each of the tinted lip oils look on my bare lips below.
CARAMEL CLOUD is the lightest shade in the range. It's a soft peachy pink shade and appears close to a nude on my lips. I love how it gives my lips a fresh natural look. This shade can definitely be used on a daily basis. In fact, it'll probably become one of my goto's for when I feel like adding on a tad bit of colour to my lips.
WHISPERING ORCHID is the brightest shade in the range and it reminds me of a barbie pink. I love how the tint appears so solid on my lips. It's such a fun and bold shade, but one that's probably more suitable for brunch with the girls or a fun day/night out!
To me, SHOWERING SUNSET is like a softer/lighter version of Whispering Orchid. It shows up as a bubble gum pink on my lips, which I personally think it's a perfect daytime colour for spring! Since this colour isn't too bold, it should easily match with most of your outfits!
RUSTLING ROSE pretty much appears as a rosy colour with a hint of brown undertone. I love how the brown undertone calms the brightness of the rosy shade, making it a more wearable shade on a daily basis (for those who wear makeup/lipstick everyday). The overall shade enhances the colour of the lips giving it an overall glow.
CRIMSON BREEZE has the strongest red tone within this range. It appears as a bright pinkish red on my lips - a perfect red for spring! This shade is great if you're going for a more sophisticated look.
And finally, we have the MISTED PLUM. I'd say it's a reddish shade with a plum undertone. Again, like the Rustling Rose, I love how the dark undertone brings the brighter shade down - making it more of a subtle dark shade on your lips. I'd say this shade has a hint of sexy vibe to it and would most definitely be perfect for a date night!
So, which shade was your favourite? Which one would you pickup?
