Hello gorgeous ladies,
We have all loved Burt’s Bees for their lip balms and hand salve, but today, I want to share my thoughts about the fairly new launch by them which are the Burt’s Bees Lip Crayons. The shade that I am going review today is “Carolina Coast.” Let’s have a look:
Introducing 6 creamy, full-coverage shades of matte lip color in a modern crayon for truly beautiful lip color. Lightweight moisture for a comfortable, every day wear formula infused with Shea Butter, Kendi Oil, and Jojoba Oil. It’s color that truly cares for your lips!.
CAD 9.97 (approximately INR 530).
My Experience with Burt’s Bees Carolina Coast Lip Crayon:
Packaging: This lip color comes in a regular lip crayon packaging like the Revlon ones. The tube has two colour-coded bands going around the tube of the lip crayon. The cap shuts tightly but not with a click sound. It has a retractable mechanism, which ensures no product wastage due to sharpening. The best part is that the lipstick bullet easily retracts back into the bullet completely and does not stick to the sides of the tube.
Color and Pigmentation: “Carolina Coast” is a beautiful cool pink shade with slight blue undertones. It does not contain any shimmer or give a frosty finish. It is a gorgeous shade which can be perfectly paired up with bold eyes or for everyday wear. The lip crayon has decent pigmentation which can be built without the product caking up on the lips. You can apply it with a light hand for a sheer colour pay-off or build it up as per choice.
Texture: Since this is not a matte lip crayon, this baby is quite creamy and soft in texture and applies smoothly without any tugging or pulling. It imparts a beautiful subtle shine to the lips – somewhat between a creamy lipstick and a gloss. I wouldn’t say this is very hydrating, but it sure does not dry out the lips.
Longevity: Considering this is a sheer to buildable lip crayon, it has average staying power and lasts on the lips for a good 4 hours with light snacking post which slight touch up is required. It does not leave any stain behind on the lips.
