When the latest from Burt's Bees hit my desk I was excited to start swatching right away! The new lipsticks come in 14 shades like Suede Splash (a flattering brown-rose), Sunset Cruise (pinky-coral) and Scarlet Soaked (luscious orange-red) and my fave Russet River (a red based brown that's easy to wear yet dramatic). The formula is 100% natural, highly moisturizing and feel as comfortable to wear as lip balm. With a satin finish, they are slightly sheer which is perfect for hot summer days. For a bolder look just add lip liner underneath!
In addition to the new lippies, Burt's Bees has also launched their BB Cream with SPF 15. If you're like me, you would have already swapped out your foundation for a lighter wearing tinted moisturizer with sun protection. I prefer using sheer makeup in the hotter months because it looks more natural in the sun. Plus - who wants cake face in 30-degree weather? This BB Cream goes on easy with your fingers (no beautyblender required!) and looks dewy and natural on the skin which I love! It comes in 3 shades, Light, Light-Medium and Medium. Right now I'm using Light-Medium but I'll probably switch to Medium in the summer for a bronzed look.
