My Experience with Burt’s Bees Sunset Cruise #523 Lipstick:

Packaging:  This range of lipsticks comes in a brown rectangular plastic packaging with a honeycomb design. You can see the shade of the lipstick from the honeycomb and the name itself appears on a sticker at the bottom.

Honeycomb packaging

The packaging looks quite attractive but the cap is slightly too tight to open. Also, the lipstick does not swivel all the way down. This can lead to accidental nicking off the tip of the lipstick.

Shade/Pigmentation:  “Sunset Cruise” is a very lovely coral-pink shade. The pigmentation of this particular shade is quite sheer and you need to swipe it multiple times for the color to show up, but it is a very pretty delicate shade of pink which will look good on all. It adds just the right amount of color to the face and is quite apt for office wear. I notice very slight clumping when I layer this lipstick.

Texture/Finis/Lasting Power:  The texture of this lipstick is like a thick balm. It glides smoothly on the lips with 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.

Hand swatch

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. The lips continue to feel soft even after the color has worn off.
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 pretty good lipstick to own.
