Burts Bees Lip Crayon - Napa Vineyard.

Now you know that I don't often do beauty posts, but when I was in Australia back in March I saw the Burts Bees Lip Crayons in Myer, and immediately wanted one. I love all things Burts Bees, but hadn't seen the lip crayons before in the UK, so I did a quick Google to check if they were in the UK and if so were they cheaper than in Australia. I couldn't find them anywhere online, so after a quick chat with their Twitter team I discovered that they weren't actually due to be released in the UK until May!

As I'd already fallen in love with the Napa Vineyard shade I went straight back to the shops to grab one. At about $17 they weren't super pricey, and that worked out at around £10. Napa Vineyard is a really deep berry red, that's incredibly build-able. I already had a bright red Rimmel lip crayon, but as you all know I much prefer using natural organic products if I can.

The swatch above is actually really true to the actual real-life colour, I adore it, it's such a gorgeous colour and it really lasts throughout the day. I do find though that despite containing shea butter, kendi oil and jojoba oil, the lip crayons are actually quite drying on my lips, so I put Burts Bees lip balm on first and then the lip crayon, which I find really helps.

With all lip crayons the packaging is quite chunky, as is the nib. I actually really love this and think it's quite fun, it still does feel very strange 'crayoning' lipstick onto my lips though...I'm not sure I'll ever get over feeling like a child every time I apply it...

You can't really see it very well due to the crappy quality/lighting/filter, but I'm wearing it in the photo below.

I much prefer the Burts Bees lip crayon to the Rimmel lip crayon, so would definitely recommend it! The pigmentation is just amazing and the colour stays on for so long. As they've just come out in the UK (you can currently purchase them on the Burts Bees UK website) I'm probably gonna get a couple more :)

  2. I love Burts Bees stuff too, bit of a sucker for packaging and really like there's. Products are great too obviously. I love the peppermint foot cream - if you haven't tried it then it's a must for tired summer feet. I always take it on holiday for post flip flop feet. It smells delicious as well - like Wrigleys chewing gum.

    1. Same! They're so awesome! Ah I haven't tried that, will have to pick it up next time I'm in town :)
