May is the month for a new lipstick and beauty counters are offering up shine, matte, liquid and lustre lip choices. The first to get our attention is from natural beauty brand Burt's Bees, here's their latest glossy option. Editor Trudi Brewer investigates.
Burts Bees Glossy Lipstick
What is it?
Burt's Bees Glossy Lipstick, $22.
What's in it?
There is nothing in this new lippy I would not be happy to eat, including the 100 percent natural red raspberry, Moringa, and meadowfoam seed oils. That goodness whipped into delicate mimosa flower wax housed in a sleek, recyclable, traditional bullet, you get unrivalled shine and a delicious taste.
What do we like about it?
For anyone who wants a natural lipstick alternative without compromising on comfort or on-trend colour - here it is. Ultra glossy and super hydrating, this lippy is ideal for the winter months to combat dryness. There are six shades (see the range below) all inspired by the colours of nature with neutrals such as Nude Mist and Peony Dew as well as bold pinks including Blush Ripple and Rose Falls. Of course, they're free from parabens, phthalates, petrolatum, SLS and synthetic fragrances - and true to the ethos of the brand - they're cruelty-free.
Burt's Bees Glossy Lipstick in Nude Mist, $22. Nude Rain, $22. Peony Dew, $22. Pink Pool, $22. Rose Falls, $22 and Blush Ripple, $22.
