This week I had the chance to try one of Burt's Bees new lipsticks and I can't begin to tell you all how impressed I am.
I tried out a vivid red shade called 520 Scarlet Soaked - I lined my lips with MAC Redd lipliner before I applied the lipstick just because I prefer to do so usually. However I found the lipstick didn't smudge or bleed so would be suitable to wear without liner if that's your preference.
This shade is just one of 18 colours in the new range of lipsticks Burt's Bees have released. Not only is there a great variety of beautiful colours to choose from, but the products themselves are made from 100% natural ingredients including bees wax, raspberry seed oil and moringa oil.
The product claims to give 8 hour moisture without need for reapplication, and I can completely vouch for this. I applied the lipstick at 3pm before I left home to meet friends. When I arrived home just before midnight, the colour was still bright and my lips were still feeling super soft despite the fact I had spent my evening eating, drinking and chatting away.

Without a doubt, the staying power of this product is amazing, and even better, when I removed my make up at the end of the night, it had hardly stained my mouth at all which was a pleasant surprise.
The only real difference in the product at the start of the evening compared to the end is that where some of it had worn away, the smooth satin finish of the product had begun to look more matte, but this isn't something I minded as I tend to prefer matte looks anyway.
The packaging and casing for the lipsticks, is super cute - I absolutely love the honeycomb texture to the lipstick casing.
The lipsticks costs £9.99 each and they're available to buy on the Burt's Bees website, and are stocked online and in store at John Lewis.
Best of all, there is currently 25% off any lip colour purchases at burtsbees.co.uk using the code BBLIPSTICK25. This offer is valid until 31/05/2017 so if you want to try it for yourself, there's no better time than now!
I've already got my eye on one of the beautiful nude shades so I've got every excuse to buy one now....
