Cult skincare brand Burt's Bees have dabbled with makeup products in the past, releasing gorgeous, moisturising lip products, however recently they have released even more including mascara, foundation, eye shadow compacts, cream highlighters, cream blush and lots more. I treated myself to a few bits and I was also kindly gifted a few, so I wanted to showcase some of the newness from Burt's Bees.
We will begin with the makeup products which were already released, starting with the Burt's Bees Lipsticks*, of which I have a regular formula and a glossy formula. The Lipsticks are priced at £9.99 each, which is about average for a drugstore lipstick, however you are of course getting that Burt's Bees goodness with these. The Lipsticks provide a rich moisturising colour from natural ingredients and I love how their formula keeps my lips feeling moisturised throughout the day. They have a wide variety of shades, so there is something to suit the majority of skin tones and preferences. Here I have the shade Nude Mist which is from the Glossy collection, and is a pretty peach-toned nude, and Ruby Ripple from their regular Lipstick range, which is a blue-toned red, meaning that it is going to make your teeth look whiter.
Then we have the Burt's Bees Matte Lip Crayons, which are also available in a glossy formula like the lipsticks. These lip crayons also cost £9.99 each and are super quick and easy to use, and I often have one in my handbag for when I need to add a little colour to my lips. Again, the formula is really moisturising, and even though they give a matte finish to the lips, there is definitely no sign of dried up lips here! There doesn't seem to be as many shades in the Matte Lip Crayons that I can see, but I adore my choice of colours, which are Sedona Sands, a warm pinky nude, and Niagara Overlook, a pretty coral shade which is perfect for Spring.
Finally for the lips I have the brand new Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Oils*, which come in six different shades. They come in packaging that looks a little like a pen, and they include a brush on the end and you simply twist the bottom end of the tube to release the product. I love that these are not sticky or gloopy like some lip oils can be and they are made with Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Coconut Oil and of course Beeswax to really nourish the lips, as well as adding a tint of colour to them. I have two of these super-hydrating lip oils, both of which retail for £9.99 each, in the shades Showering Sunset, a warm orchid pink and Caramel Cloud, a lovely light nude perfect for everyday.
Moving on to the cheeks I tried out the Burt's Bees All Aglow Lip & Cheek Stick (£12.99). This is a hydrating lip and blush dual stick which is available in six different shades and is 100% natural. The formula has been made using Jojoba Seed Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil and there is also a middle part which is made from Coconut Oil to really nourish the skin and add some hydration, which is perfect for me as I do suffer from quite dry cheeks. This is quite a sheer product with it being a cream blush, but it does have plenty of pigment in it, making it the perfect hint of colour on both the cheeks and the lips. I opted for the shade Suez Sands, which is a medium pink shade which suits my light skin really well.
As a highlighter lover I had to try the Burt's Bees All Aglow Highlighter Stick (£12.99), of which there is just the one shade available at the moment. Just like the Lip & Cheek Stick, this also has a core made from Coconut Oil to keep the skin hydrated whilst you are wearing it - which other highlighter do you know of which could do this? The shade I have is Opal Mist, so maybe they are releasing other shades but this was all I could find online. It is a very pretty light champagne shimmer, which works well for fair to light skin tones in my opinion. Due to it being in a stick form, it is so, so easy to use and apply onto those areas you need a little highlight on, and the formula isn't gloopy or sticky and simply adds a natural, radiant glow to the skin.
Finally from the new collection, I ordered myself the Burt's Bees Eye Shadow Compact (£11.99), which is available in different colourways but I opted for Blooming Desert as I really liked the shades and found them slightly different but very wearable. I was actually much more surprised when I tried the shadows out as the pigments are unreal!!! There is an iridescent cream, an iridescent copper and a shimmery bronze shade and they all work together beautifully, especially with my blue eyes. The formula of course is 100% natural, and contains Bamboo, Honey and Vitamin E to nourish the skin, which for the eye area is great because I often get dry, tired eyes. The compact is cute, and like a little piece of honeycomb and the shadows are super easy to blend and lasted me throughout the day. I honestly could not be more impressed with this little compact and I will definitely have to try out some of the other shades.
