Makeup Review, Swatches, Ingredients: Burt’s Bees New 100% Natural Lip Glosses, Lip Shines, Tinted Lip Balm Shades
Burt’s Bees has done it again! And this time with their new lip color line! We’ve seen their Tinted Lip Balms, but now Burt’s Bees launched their New 100% Natural Lip Glosses and Lip Shines, as well as adding four new shades of their tinted lip balms.
I LOVE showcasing my plump pout (so I hid my crazy curls for this one, only showing my lips), and let me tell you, dolls — these lipglosses’ shine are AMAZING and smell of yummy VANILLA!
I literally own close to one-hundred different lipglosses and NONE of them feel this great: soft, non-sticky. I’m not kidding, they’re 100% kissable and you don’t need to worry if a wind gust blows your hair into your face, cementing it!
I usually apply a lip balm prior to my lipgloss, as they tend to dry my lips, but I didn’t need to with Burt’s Bees Lip Glosses/Shines. Also, you know that sticky feeling you get when you remove your lipgloss? Not with these! I AM IN LOVE!
Evelyn & Ari Lankin
At the product launch event, celebrity makeup artist Katey Denno was on hand to present Burt’s Bees new lip launch — and we even took part in a canvas-painting session with artist Ari Lankin of Spanish Harlem.
We were asked to convert a black and white painting of a woman in straight blond hair, with lips depicting a rose, into anything of our own. “Nature knows color” was the theme. Well, I gave her a make-over, and of course I converted her into a ‘Curl Gurl’ with big red lips: me!
From a beekeeper’s backyard in Maine, to the leading edge in natural beauty, Burt’s Bees knows natural body care solutions from head-to-toe. Burt’s Bees has been offering distinctly earth-friendly, natural health and beauty products for over twenty-five years! Burt’s Bees partnered with celebrity makeup artist Katey Denno, who exclusively uses green beauty products and dedicates herself to an eco-friendly lifestyle. Burt’s Bees new color expert Katey said:
“When I tried the new glosses, I was amazed at the color payoff and the formula, and the wide range of these natural shades allows for unique mixing and layering possibilities.”
One unique thing is the wand applicator which helps define lips in a natural way, and, of course, I love that each gloss is housed in a sustainable packaging! I agree with Katey: these glosses feel natural and also pack a punch of shine and color! Products are available at select natural grocery drug and mass retailers or at www.burtsbees.com.
