My Experience with Burt’s Bees 512 Fuchsia Flood Lipstick:

Packaging:  The lipstick comes in a brown rectangular plastic packaging with a cure honeycomb design. The packaging looks nice, but I am not overtly impressed by it for a few reasons. Firstly, the packaging is very light and hence feels slightly cheap. It is not flimsy or easily breakable, but I like my lipstick barrels to be a bit heavier. Secondly, the cap shuts a bit too tight for my liking and I need to pull it with a little force.


And lastly, the lipstick does not swivel all the way down the barrel. This can lead to accidental 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:  “Fuchsia Flood” is true to its name and is a lovely fuchsia shade. I love that the purple undertones in this lipstick are not too pronounced and a little easy for me to carry off.  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.

The slightly sheer pigmentation results in the finish being not too made up and makes even a bold color like fuchsia very easily wearable.

Texture/Finish/Lasting Power:  The texture of this lipstick feels like a thick balm. It glides smoothly 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 dry 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 – a hit formula for me!
