There’s a new hive in town!
It’s a quaint store right beside Beauty Bar and it’s packed with even more natural beauty finds.
If you don’t know what to buy yet, you can check out their wall of favorites. It has all their best-sellers!
They have baby stuff in the store also (nice if you’re a new or breastfeeding mom!) and a timeline of significant milestones for the Burt’s Bees brand (beauty geeks like me will enjoy this!).
Okay…so now that we’re done with that little beauty PSA, let’s get to the point of this post: Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer!
You might think that calling a lippie delicious is weird, but if you think about it, women reportedly eat about four to nine pounds of lipstick in their lifetime. That’s why I like to go with natural lip products whenever I can.
What surprised me most was how intense the color was. You’ll get a nice, natural shade here for the whole “my lips but better” trend and I like that the shimmer isn’t too overpowering. Just teensy flecks to give you a fuller pout. More plus points for the moisture boost it gives (due to the vitamin E, beeswax, and sunflower oils) and the antioxidant-rich fruit oils that help soften your pout. It also has a tingly, peppermint flavor if you like that (I’m not a big fan).
I had to twist the bottom to push the product up for the shoot. Unfortunately, if you try winding it back down, it won’t work! I tried pushing it in (like you do with lip balms), but the product is way too soft and creamy. It’s no biggie since you probably won’t be doing this on a normal day, but just make sure you don’t over-twist when you use it to avoid wastage.
Anyway…I actually thought of writing this post to honor the memory of Burt of Burt’s Bees. So sad to hear that he’s gone! I got to see a quick video about his life when I hosted an event for the brand and I found him so charming. He’s such a free spirit and he really contributed a lot to the (natural) beauty world!
My heartfelt condolences to the Burt’s Bees Family. But don’t worry, beauty addicts all over the world will help make sure that #BurtLivesOn! ♥
