I’m not usually one for lip color — I tend to keep it simple with a lip balm or gloss. But when I came across Burt’s Bees Lip Crayons, I couldn’t resist trying them out. With six colors available, there’s an option for every skin tone and although the finish is matte, the formula is super creamy and moisturizing.
This winter, I was obsessed with wearing the deep scarlet shade called Redwood Forest. I’m pretty clumsy, so the pointed tip on the crayon made application a breeze. The pigment was impressive and easy to build upon for an even more intense look. Not only did this color last, but the nourishing ingredients like jojoba oil, kendi oil and shea butter made my lips feel soft and hydrated.
Now that spring is on the horizon, I’m going to switch it up with the bright pink Hawaiian Smolder. The color is on the cool side, so it works really well with my skin’s warm undertones. The opacity is still amazing and the finish is soft and matte. I love the cheerful pop of color this adds to my makeup palette. It’s subtle enough to wear to work, but fun enough to wear during the weekends.
