Hope all you guys are doing great! Okay, so here’s a small question for you; which is that one cosmetic that you can’t live without? Oh! Am I being too stingy ?! Okay, fine name two cosmetics 😛 Well, for me, hands down, they are my lip balms and kajals 🙂 Taking about lip balms, I was head-over-heels for Maybelline baby lips, but then my lips met its true love realizing Maybelline was just a serious infatuation! 😛 This true love is with none other than “Burt Bees’ Tinted Lip Balm.”
My lips met its soul mate when I was on a trip to Singapore with my soul mate 😀 As soon as I saw the Burt’s Bees counter at Sephora Singapore, along with other products, I picked up this baby in “Sweet Violet” shade and also a lip shine (the review would be coming soon). Having missed Sephora so dearly in Mumbai, I was so overwhelmed and wanted to practically buy the whole store; but thanks to my over tensed soul mate, he was with me holding my hand and helping me let go 😛
Okay, coming to my lips ultimate love; let’s see how my lips and I fell in love with Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm in “Sweet Violet.”
For just a hint of colour and a whole lot of conditioning. The Botanical Waxes in these softly tinted balms will take your lips to lovely in one pretty swipe. They come in a range of 11 naturally flattering shades.
(Can you read the natural ingredients in here!!? *love*).
SGD 15 (Converting to INR 720), so expensive comparing to the price in the US! (not fair!)
My Experience with Burt’s Bees Sweet Violet Tinted Lip Balm:
It’s been 3 months that I’m using this variant of Burt’s Bees and needless to mention, I am in serious love with this. These balms are formulated to be very conditioning. The colour is sheer, but still quite pigmented. In fact, this is the most pigmented and naturally tinted balm that I own. The shade “Sweet Violet” is a very nice plum pink, which deposits perfect amount of colour and shine on my lips and makes it perfect for daily wear. It lasts for at least 2 hours after which it takes a second to reapply. The colour is also buildable; 3-4 coats gives you a brilliant colour pay off. A lovely sweet smell is definitely a bonus!
I do not have major dry or chapped lips, but since I am in an air-conditioned environment every day, I like my lip balms to be natural and moisturising. This balm has definitely helped me maintain the softness of my lips and it gives a very natural tinge, making my lips look very healthy with a natural sheen 😀
I have also used this under my dry/matte lipsticks and it makes the lipsticks glide beautifully without any tugging or pulling. In fact when I use this under my Burt’s Bees lip shine, it looks so beautiful and perfect for evening dinner when you want to go for a no/less make-up look.
The packaging is what I really like! It comes in a retractable cylindrical tube, which in turn comes in a perfect cylindrical box just made for it. In fact, it is great when you just want to dump it in your bag, as it won’t get lost in your bag due to the box packaging.
