Ever since I can remember I've suffered from having dry skin, dry hair, and chapped lips. Blame it on genetics, blame it on the fact that I find it almost impossible to drink eight 8oz glasses of water a day, blame it on whatever you want but the lips were the always the hardest for me to combat. I tried everything under the sun and nothing ever worked.
But then, when I was about 16 years old I just stopped using lip products all together. I completely banned them. Why? Because my dad told me the reason for my lips being so rough and chapped was because I kept loading on the chapstick seventeen times a day. I would say "Uh no dad, this situation would be even worse if I wasn't using a moisturizer." in which he would respond "How about you just listen to me for once and let your body learn to moisturize itself instead of caking that crap on there".
So I did listen to him (for once)and after a while my lips miraculously weren't as dry and disgusting. Those dads, I tell ya, they know a thing or two sometimes.
But ever since then I've been pretty petrified of putting anything on my lips at all. Chaptstick, Vaseline, moisturizer, lipgloss, lipstick, you name it, I boycotted it. Because every time I would try to doll myself up a little bit more that my usual routine and add some color to my chaps, they would immediately dry up and get all cracked and icky. Which is pretty much the exact opposite look I was going for, ya know?
Enter Burt's Bees new line of lipsticks.
I bet you didn't even know they carried a line of lipsticks, did you? Well you're welcome because they do and they're Available at Target.
But in all honestly I think I've finally found a lip color product that doesn't make me look like I've been sucking air through a bendy straw in the desert for the past 26.5 years of my life immediately after putting it on. And that's because Burt's Bees products are 100% natural, using ingredients we can actually pronounce. Vitamin E, Beeswax, Raspberry Seed Oil, and Moringa all combine to hydrate, soften, condition, and moisturize dry lips for eight whole hours.
My favorite part is that there are 14 different shades to choose from and they feel really lightweight and natural, not that "I just used a paint roller to apply this" feeling some of those other caked on products give you.
The colors I chose were Iced Iris, Ruby Ripple, and Fuchsia Flood (from left to right and top to bottom in the below photos).
They go on so smooth and have just enough shine without being so glossy that your hair gets plastered to your face anytime the wind picks up.
So tell me, have you tried Burt's Bees new line of lipsticks yet? If not, what exactly are you waiting for. Head to Target right now and don't forget to scoop me up on your way.
