First of all, I must apologize for not posting a “Beauty Pick of the Week” last Saturday. I absentmindedly left my laptop charger at my internship and my laptop died! However, I have this post just for all of you who might be wanting to try a new lippie!
I love lippies as much as the next person but recently I have been trying to stick to only natural brands. As someone who was previously devoted to a particular brands famous lip crayons, I wanted a product that was similar yet contained only wholesome ingredients. I also wanted a product that was cruelty-free. As I was scrolling on my Instagram one day, I saw that Burt’s Bees had a new lip crayon product. I was so excited that I headed to my nearest Ulta to pick one up. Due to the sheer popularity of this new product, finding it in my local Ulta was extremely difficult. Once I found it, I scourged through the bin looking for a suitable shade. The only downside to this new product is that it is only available in 6 shades instead of 60 like the other brand’s product. The lip crayon cost me only $8.99 USD at Ulta which is the same price as my previous beloved lip crayons.
I selected a lip crayon in the shade “Hawaiian Smolder #429”. It is a beautiful and vibrant pink shade. Personally, I believe this particular shade would suit most skin tones. The lip crayons provide a smooth and creamy matte color to the lips. If matte is not for you, I suggest throwing a gloss on over it. Gloss or not, the lip crayon does an amazing job of delivering a beautiful pigment. Tip: Add a stroke of lip balm prior to application for an ultra smooth application.
Overall, I highly recommend this product to anyone wanting to try some new lippies or perhaps wanting to switch to natural beauty products. The next time I go to Ulta, I know for a fact that I will be purchasing a couple of more colors. I also have hopes that Burt’s Bees will release some new colors in the future!
Right now, I am working a couple of exciting posts for my readers. Stay tuned for some looks from my Tarte Rainforest After Dark palette and some amazing heatless curls that lasts all day!
