Skin/Hair Type: Oily and occasionally acne-prone/Normal Hair
Hello gorgeous ladies,
Today I want to share my thoughts about the fairly new launch by Burt’s Bees, the Lip Crayons! The shade I am going review today is Redwood Forest. Let’s have a look.
Introducing six 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!
Price: CAD 9.97 (Approx. INR 530)
My Experience with Burt’s Bees Redwood Forest Lip Crayon:
Packaging: This lip colour comes in a regular lip crayon packaging like the Revlon ones. The tube is pretty brown colour which 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.
Colour and Pigmentation: “Redwood Forest” is a beautiful warm toned true red shade with slight brown undertones. It does not contain any shimmers or give a frosty finish. It is a gorgeous shade which can be perfectly paired up with subtle eyes or for special occasions. This is like a statement red shade. 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 surely does not dry out the lips.
Longevity: Considering this is a sheer to buildable coverage lip crayon, it has average staying power and lasts on the lips for a good 4 hours with light snacking. After that slight touch up is required. It does not leave any stain behind on the lips.
