Burt’s Bees 511 Magenta Rush Lipstick Review

Hello all,

A couple of months ago, Burt’s Bees introduced a new permanent range of lipsticks touted to be made with 100% naturally moisturizing ingredients. Now, who would want to pass up something like that? So, I ended up picking up 7 out of the 14 shades at the first chance that I had. The shades that I picked up are “Magenta Rush,” “Ruby Ripple,” “Fuchsia Flood,” “Sunset Cruise,” “Scarlet Soaked,” “Brimming Berry” and “Russet River.” Today, I am reviewing the shade “Magenta Rush” for you. Read on to find out more.

My Experience with Burt’s Bees 511 Magenta Rush Lipstick:

Packaging:  When I had first seen the lipstick on the website, I had so loved the honeycomb design and the rectangular shade of the packaging. However, when I actually had the lipstick in my hand, I thought it felt a little cheap. It is made of very lightweight plastic. It is not flimsy or easily breakable, but I just like my lipstick barrels to be slightly heavy. The cap shuts a bit too tight for my liking and I need to pull it with a little force to open.

Moreover, the lipstick does not swivel down all the way down the barrel. This can lead to accidentally nicking off the tip of the lipstick. You can see the shade of the lipstick from the honeycomb and the name itself appears on a sticker at the bottom.

Shade/Pigmentation:  “Magenta Rush” is true to its name and is a lovely magenta shade. This is a shade which will suit Indian skin tones perfectly. The pigmentation of the lipstick is slightly towards the sheer side. It does not deliver a full on bold color in one swipe but enough to cover the lips. You can layer it on to intensify the color. Layering does not lead to clumping of the lipstick.

I usually like my lipsticks to deliver bold bright pigmentation, but I am loving the way this lipstick brings just the right hint of color to the lips. It does not look too made up and is apt for office wear.

Texture/Finish/Lasting Power:  The texture of this lipstick feels like a thick balm. It glides on the lips and there is absolutely no tug at all.  The formula is indeed very moisturizing due to the presence of ingredients like Beeswax, Moringa Oil, Raspberry Seed Oil, and Vitamin E.

For a moisturizing lipstick, the lasting power is good too. It lasts on me for about 5 hours with some snacking and light meals. It does transfer but not too much and the best part is that my lips continue to feel soft even after the lipstick has worn off. I am sure that those with drier lips will love this formula. The finish of the lipstick is a lovely semi-matte one with sheen.

To summarize, this is a 100% natural lipstick with the goodness of a lip balm, just the right amount of color and a good staying power. What is not there to like?
