I’m prone to spontaneous drugstore beauty sprees. That is what lunch hours are for right? Otherwise there wouldn’t be a CVS on every other city block. I’ve recently gone on a bit of a Burt’s Bees bender. It started with one tube of the new Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Gloss and quickly escalated from there. I’ve been a long-time fan of Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm — Rose is a MUST — and I couldn’t resist indulging in the brand’s new formulations, which also includes a brand new Lip Shine.
Honestly, my Burt’s binge could have gotten really out of control because the colors are all so pretty. The four new shades of the Tinted Lip Balms are soft and springy. I fixated on Sweet Violet right away — it’s a cool medium pink that looks very fresh on the lips. At $6.99, these are such a steal! I decided on the peachy Sunny Day Lip Gloss. It has a pearly copper hue and when the sun hits your lips, the color really stands out! The honeycomb on the packaging wand is the cutest touch, no? The Lip Shines, available in the prettiest variety of neturals, pinks and plums, are decidedly different than the Natural Lip Gloss. They have a soft fruity scent, versus the vanilla aroma, and look very glassy and wet on the lips. Wink is the perfect girly pink. They are a sheerer formula so layer really well over lipstick.
For a natural formula, these are on par with something much more spendy. I fully endorse a Burt’s Bees spree. Please binge and report back. (Read: tell me what shade to try next!)
