I’m slacking a little on the review front lately and I do apologise for that. I have quite a few things to bring to you and plan on catching up very soon.
Today I’m going to share with you my thoughts on Burt’s Bees Natural Lip Gloss. In particular the Zesty Red shade.
The lip gloss is packaged in a standard tube. Its clear so you can see the colour immediately. I like that the attention is drawn to the fact that the product is 100% natural.
This lip gloss is 100% natural and isn’t tested on animals – massive plus in my books.
As you can see the lip gloss is quite shimmery when swatched, but when applied the shimmer isn’t too much. I do think that shimmer can sometimes cheapen a product, however this one has just the right amount of shimmer to make your lips fuller and shiny without cheapening them.
If I’d bought this product expecting it to be a very ‘zesty red’ I would be a little disappointed as it doesn’t really pack much punch in the colour department.
Colour aside this lip gloss does exactly what it says on the tin. It makes your lips look super shiny and leaves them feeling very moisturised.
The lip gloss has a fruity fragrance which is quite overpowering on first application, but this doesn’t stick around too long, it just leaves a subtle orange smell.
The formula of this isn’t sticky at all. Burt’s Bees state that this feels more balm like on the lips than lip gloss and it really does. My lips feel super smooth when wearing this.
Would I recommend this product?
This completely depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a natural, cruelty free, moisturising lip gloss then yes. If you are looking for a super pigmented, vibrant lip gloss then no.
My lip gloss was sent to me from Cheap Smells. Their website states that this product is usually dispatched within one working day. Cheap Smells deliver free within the UK. You can view their other delivery options for outside the UK here.
