This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Burt’s Bees for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
There was a time in my teen years when it didn't matter what kind of makeup I purchased. The only rule of thumb was the cheapest was the one I bought. But now I know better. Ingredients matter, quality matters, and I have my own personal tastes and preferences. I am still reasonable about price and I do love a good deal but when it comes to lips, I'm particular. I don't like lip products that have a strange smell or taste. I must have one with natural ingredients because whether I like it or not, that lip product is going in my mouth. I don’t want any strange ingredient going in my mouth and into my body.
That's why I love Burt's Bees new 100% Natural Lipstick. It’s only $8.99 so it won’t break the bank or make me feel guilty for buying it. The big plus is it is made from ingredients I can actually pronounce, like Beeswax Moringa Oil and Raspberry Seed Oil. Fun fact is Moringa oil is full of essential fatty acids that helps keep your skin soft and Raspberry seed actually helps improve skin elasticity. Who wouldn’t want that in their lip sticks? Burt's Bees Lipstick has the pretty color of a lipstick but feels like a chap stick. It keeps my lips soft all day and I love the smooth satin finish. It doesn't have that strange taste or smell. It looks so pretty and how adorable is the with the little honey comb print.
I found it when I was strolling the makeup aisle at Target. My sister and I love Burts Bees and it was a sweet surprise to see the new lipstick line. The first one I bought was the Iced Iris just so I can wear it every day. It's the color I'm wearing in the picture above. And special bonus, there is a 30% off coupon on Target Cartwheel for the lipstick!
Iced Iris is the perfect shade to wear out and about running errands or even at the gym. Yes, I am that crazy lady who wears make-up when I work out. But I love that there is a shade for every occasion because you know my lips don't go nude on date nights.
There are 14 different versatile shades and something to wear for every occasion. The color shades vary from light to dark. The Scarlet Soaked is probably my second favorite! Such a deep and pretty color. I’m also loving the Magenta Rush.
So many options! Which is your favorite?
I know it may sound silly but I love wearing lipstick. It makes me feel so pretty. The right color is the perfect accent to any cute outfit but can also brighten up your whole face. You can find all the shades in the make up section Available at Target.
And speaking of skin, while we were roaming the makeup aisle we also noticed that Burt’s Bees has a New BB Cream!
I can’t live life without my BB. It helps even my skin tone, especially since I have a few splotches on my cheek area. It reduces those wrinkles the kids have started giving me and helps to conceal the dark circles. A lot of times I just wear a BB cream without foundation. It’s become part of my face care routine. The Burt’s Bees BB Cream comes in light, medium, and dark.
