It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done a beauty post but I felt compelled to write this one. It’s not often I go to a press event where I instantly fall head over heels for a product and want to shout about it from the rooftops.
Last week on a hideously cold day I popped by Burt’s Bees’ launch of their new moisturising lipstick. It’s the first fully fledged lipstick they’ve done (they’ve already got tinted lip balms, lip crayons and glosses in their line) and it doesn’t disappoint. It follows the same Burt’s Bees principle which focuses on moisturising and hydrating the lips.
The reason I went so cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs over them is because the day I discovered I had been walking around outside in the cold quite a bit and it had left me with hideously chapped and rather sore lips. Hardly ideal when you’re off to a lippy event! I was a bit embarrassed to let the makeup artist see the state of them but she told me not to worry as this lipstick would actually help. Boy, was she right! It made my lips softer, more hydrated and it didn’t even feel like I was wearing anything.
This 100% natural lipstick provides 8 hours of moisturisation combined with great colour payoff in a satin finish. If you want the perfect lipstick which will see you through the cold weather this is it. Plus, if all that isn’t enough, the packaging is also cruelty-free and recyclable.

It comes in a range of 18 shades. I’m really going through a berry/plum stage at the moment, so I’m particularly loving Lily Lake and Brimming Berry. The nude selection is pretty good too. Priced at £9.99, it’s thankfully not going to break the bank either.
