I was so happy when I saw that Burt's Bees launched their Lip Crayons, not just because of the great natural ingredients, but also because I absolutely love beautifully pigmented chubby lip crayons. The lightweight balm-like texture is both comfortable on the lips and moisturizing. It features a convenient twist up design, and none of the mess or waste associated with sharpening.
According to Burt's Bees,
Introducing six creamy, full-coverage shades of matte lip color in a modern crayon for truly beautiful lip color. Lightweight moisture for a comfortable, everyday wear formula infused with Shea Butter, Kendi Oil, and Jojoba Oil. It's color that truly cares for your lips!
While it is described as a full coverage matte lip color, I would add that like many modern mattes this one does possess some sheen. Unlike other mattes, this one contains shea butter, kendi oil and jojoba oil, and the added moisture that these ingredients provide makes this one fantastic formula. This hydrating lip crayon is a wonderful hybrid lipstick/lip balm that you can wear all day long without your lips getting dry or uncomfortable. It is also a very affordable alternative to the luxury matte lipsticks on the market that dry lip sufferers tend to avoid. It has the perfect amount of cushion, feels divine on the lips, and can be applied without a mirror! When I wear this my lips are left soft, supple and conditioned, and all I can say is that I want the remaining 5 colors. Additionally, Burt's Bees Lip Crayons neither contain added fragrance, nor flavor-- so they won't pose a problem for people sensitive to fragrance in their beauty products.
Burt's Bees Natural Lip Crayon in Redwood Forest is a plum kissed red, and while it does appear somewhat lighter and more red in the swatches it does build up in intensity and darken in hue.
• For everyday wear either alone or layered under a Lip Gloss or Lip Shine
• Precise application in a playful form without the hassle and mess of sharpening
• No added flavor or fragrance
• Hydrates and moisturizes lips, leaving them feeling soft and smooth
