Valentine’s day is coming up very soon! Just like every other major cosmetics brand, Burt’s Bees have been gearing up for Friday the 14th and have you covered with all natural, petrolatum-free lip products for the romantic season.
They kindly sent through the Burt’s Bees Lip Shine in Smooch, Burt’s Bees Lip Gloss in Sweet Sunset, Burt’s Bees Lip Gloss in Ruby Moon to be featured.
Now, for the swatches…
Sweet Sunset: A medium pigmentation copper gloss with fine shimmer. Looks ok when swatched, but magnificent on the lips- almost a dark sepia neutral quality that I find very flattering. Lasting power is a fairly short 30-45mins before significant fading and frequent reapplication is required. Nevertheless, super pretty and versatile.
This is my favourite of the three, and a product that I’ve been using quite a bit since it landed in my hotel room “office” a week ago.

Valentine’s Day is less than a day away, and frankly I can hardly wait. Tomorrow P and I are getting on a flight to Hobart for a much needed holiday (the last time I managed to get away for a holiday was my trip to New York in November 2011, and it’s getting to the stage where just getting through each day at work felt like torture. First world problems? Perhaps.)
Although I’m not a huge fan of chocolate or flowers, I do like having something pretty on my lips during V day. Miranda from Clinique HQ very kindly sent me her favourite Valentine’s lip products : Clinique Chunky Cherry Chubby Stick and Clinique Extreme Pink High Impact Lip Colour. I thought I would swatch, review, and FOTD them for you, loved up reader.
Price: Chubby Sticks: $35.00 AUD, High Impact Lip Colour: $36.00 AUD
Availability: Clinique counters worldwide, Myer department stores.]
