Lip Colour from Burt’s Bees

Any long time reader of my blog will have seen Burt’s Bees get frequent mentions and rave reviews. I can’t get enough of their fabulous lip products so when I was sent samples of their new Lip Colour products I was pretty excited!
I was sent three products from the range of Lip Colour products- Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus, Lip Shine in Whisper and Lip Gloss in nearly dusk. Already a huge fan of the un-tinted lip balms I was eager to give the coloured version a go, Hibiscus is a lovely pinky colour with quite orange undertones to it making it perfect for this time of year. You get a sheer, buildable colour that protects your lips in the same way as the non tinted version, no compromises here! I’ve been wearing this on a daily basis as a more subtle shade for work, rather than my favoured full on weekend orange!
I’m not much of a lip gloss wearer so I wasn’t sure how well these would hold up against my expectations. I love the look of a glossy lip but can’t stand stickiness at all (I hate certain textures in general and sticky is one of them!) so it was to my delight that I found both the Lip Shine and Lip Gloss both very un-sticky indeed. The Lip Shine in whisper was such a pale pink that it was almost clear and looked lovely layered over the Lip Balm as well as on it’s own/with some of my other lip products. The colour lip gloss was again a super subtle shade but provided the perfect touch of pinky colour and shine for a toned down and natural look.
In general I’m quite fickle with my lip products and ditch them after one or two uses in favour of something else (only to repeat the cycle days later). I’ve owned these products for just over two weeks now and have used each of them pretty much on a daily basis, which is something that has only happened with one or two other products in the past. I know a lot of you blogger beauties love yourself a bit of Burt’s Bees so I won’t hesitate in telling you to get hold of at least one of these wonders in at least one of the shades. To find your perfect shades you can visit the Lip Shade Finder on the website and get discovering!
Price wise, the Tinted Lip Balm retails at £5.99, the Lip Shine is £6.99 and the Lip Gloss is £8.99 so pretty standard high street prices! I literally only own one other Lip Gloss so you can guess what I’ll be stocking up on when I get paid! According to the Shade Finder I need to own Sweet Sunset, so there’s my starting point!
