A while ago, when I was down in Singapore and browsing the Sephora sale, I came upon the Burt’s Bees display. I have tried the odd bit and bob from the brand in terms of skincare, but if I’m to be honest, it never quite stood out for me. Asked to describe it, I’d say it’s “Meh!” at best. Yes, “meh” is a description LOL!
But at the back of my head, I remembered reading somewhere about the newly launched Burt’s Bees Lipsticks and how nice they were. So I got curious, and eventually picked one up for the sake of experimentation.
The Burt’s Bees lipstick comes in a long rectangle tube, with the colour band denoting the colour of the lipstick. After a few moment swatching at the counter, I decided to stay away from my usual bright colours, and go instead, for a warm everyday shade. I eventually settled for Sunset Cruise.
The colour, when swatched on the back of my hand, as you’ll see below, fit what I was looking for. A light coral, a colour I could wear daily and one that was not too obtrusive. Little did I realise that while the colour disappointed me a little, I really enjoyed using this. With one big caveat.
