Product Review: Burt’s Bees Lipstick

on October 19, 2016


I get right on board any train wishing to help the bees of our planet survive and will heartily give any beauty product made from honey, propolis or royal jelly my immediate attention as supporting such products – made by Burt’s Bees, Hey Honey and other manufacturers – often results in funding and research on how to help our fine, striped little friends the bees, survive.

So, on that mandate, I bought a Burt’s Bees Lipstick in ‘Lily Lake’ a few days ago.  I’d seen the commercial indicating high impact colour and up to 8 hours of moisture.  Bear in mind that I live in a dry climate, which gets even drier come Winter so perhaps mine is not the best testimonial on which to rely.

I liked the texture of the lipstick.  It glided on smoothly and appeared to provide instant moisture and smoothing to my parched skin.  The colour did not last over long, but to be fair, I had just had supper and to be fair again, many “colour fast” makeups are able to maintain colour by employing many skin-drying ingredients, so this counteracts the high impact colour with long-lasting moisture.

I felt comfortable without re-applying for a couple of hours despite the colour having already faded, so it did deliver on that promise at least.  Plus, I liked that a range of colours that would appeal to a variety of skin tones and colours was offered.  Also offered by Burt’s Bees is a full range of lip balms, coloured and otherwise, so there are at least options for conceivably every person out there and at reasonable prices to boot.


My review: 4 out of 5
