Burt's Bees Matte Lip Crayons and Satin Lipsticks Review

A girl can never have too many lip products. I always switch around colours and formulations depending on my mood and I was yet to try out what Burt's Bees had to offer. Burt's Bees recently launched a NEW line of glossy lipsticks, satin lipsticks and matte lip crayons. I was sent a mixture of five to review and I was quite impressed with one of the collections.

"Introducing six creamy, full-coverage shades of matte lip colour in a modern crayon for truly beautiful lip colour. Lightweight moisture for a comfortable, everyday wear formula infused with Shea Butter, Kendi Oil, and Jojoba Oil. It's colour that truly cares for your lips!"
£9.99* each
One of the lip collections is the matte lip crayon. There are a total of six shades and no sharpening is required.
These crayons give a lovely wash of colour and tints your lips rather than a full on colour. Even though it states that these are matte lip crayons, the finish is shiny and this could be due to the added jojoba oil, kendi oil and shea butter. I'm not sure why these are called matte lip crayons when the finish isn't matte but that aside I love that this has been made by 100% recycled material and has no added flavours of fragrances. This also contains no parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or SLS. It also states that you are able to get 8 hour wear out of this product but I wasn't able to get past 1 hour! It just disappears as soon as you drink or eat something. I guess I had high hopes for this range but I think of this more like a tinted lipbalm that you can just easily apply on the go and as often as you like. I like the fact that it makes my lips feel nourished and hydrated but the lack of pigmentation and longevity lets this one down. Check out the collection here - link

"Burt's Bees Glossy Lipstick gives you medium coverage, glossy lip colour you'll love, with natural, moisturising ingredients that love your lips in return. These long-wearing lipsticks make lips super lustrous and keep them hydrated. Nourishing Red Raspberry Oil, Moringa Oil and Meadowfoam Seed Oil moisturise, leaving lips smooth and beautifully soft. Burt's Bees also offers 18 satin lipsticks in a versatile colour palette from nudes to pinks to reds to plums. All Burt's Bees Lipsticks are formulated without parabens, phthalates, petrolatum, SLS or synthetic fragrances, and made with recyclable packaging. They're 100% natural makeup products and never tested on animals."

Visually this is such a stunning product! I absolutely love the honeycomb style design on the casing and you can also tell the colour of the lipstick by looking at the honeycomb design so you don't need to look at the bottom of the lipstick or even open it to see the colour, pretty neat!
I was amazed at the pigmentation of these, just one swipe on my wrist had such great colour pay off and the formulation is SO creamy and easy to wear, it doesn't drag on the lips but applies smoothly and precisely. The lipstick formula contains moringa oils and raspberry seed oils so expect your lips to be nourished and moisturised to the max. This range also has a huge colour collection, you can choose from 18 shades!! From purple berry shades to chic nude colours, there is a colour for everyone! This lipstick is made from 60% recycled materials which I think is great, despite being made out of recycled materials, it does not look 'bad' or 'basic'. The stunning design and packaging still feels sturdy and of good quality. It promises 8 hour wear, I wouldn't say I was able to wear it for 8 hours, it did however have a overall good lasting power, 2 to 3 hours max then you would have to reapply. You can really build up the intensity with these lipsticks and the 'Tulip Tide' shade is my absolute favourite! I always keep one in my make-up bag! Check out the collection here - link
