Burt's Bees Makeup Range

Hi Loves

This is a post that I have been desperate to write, a full face of makeup from Burt's Bees, as you know Burt's is not new to my blog and you can read further posts  here if you wish, it has been a firm favourite for a long while now.  I think the thing that really makes it stand out for me is that while it is makeup it's definitely not "cakeup" what you get are gentle natural products that manage to deliver pigment without yelling look at me!

Let's crack on......

Burt's Bees Goodness Glows Liquid Makeup 29.5ml

Described as full coverage, I personally would say medium coverage but it is buildable, a lightweight creamy foundation with no overpowering fragrance, it applies well especially with a beauty blender, a little goes a long way with this foundation so I would suggest starting off with the less is more attitude and building it should you need more coverage, if you apply too much the first time round you will have a hell of a job blending it! feels light non cakey, I have normal/dry skin and it didn't dry down matte on me which was lovely as I do like a bit of glow, be aware though that this is not the longest lasting foundation and will possibly need touching up if you want it to go from day to evening.

Burt's Bees Nourishing Mascara 11.5g

I sampled Black/Brown in this mascara and have to say it applied easily with a good depth of colour, if you like colour and natural fluffy looking lashes this is the one for you, first coat gives a good natural look, bringing you colour/length but no clogging, a second coat really does fluff the lashes the tightly bristles tapered brush gives fabulous separation to the lashes giving you a full lash but without thickening build up.  What this mascara does do is nourish the lashes while adding colour, cruelty free, natural and suitable for sensitive eyes.

Burt's Bees Brow Pencil

This was a complete surprise to me, I am usually a brow powder lover, the reason being is that I often find pencils look to "drawn" and while I like brow definition I don't want them to look as though they have been precision drawn, this pencil is a real eye opener, firstly at how soft it is and secondly the way it manages to deliver pigment in a soft and natural way, helped along by the spiral brow brush at the end of the pencil, you can rub your finger across your brow without disturbing the look at all, not that I recommend you do this :)

Burt's Bees Eyeshadow trio 3.4g

This little trio of shades ( Countryside Lavender) shown here is mineral eyeshadow with bamboo, honey and  vitamin E, these apply easily with a great pigment, the formula is soft and seriously easy to blend, lasts really well and after hours I found no creasing, obviously if you wanted it to still be vibrant for a night out a little touch up would do the trick.

Burt's Bees ALL aglow Lip and Cheek Stick shade 1250 Suez sands.

This is multi purpose at it's best!  A soft creamy wind up blush stick that gives just a hint of subtle colour, infused with Jojoba, Sunflower and Coconut Oils the formula blends perfectly and gives just a flush of colour to both cheeks and lips. The sticks come in 6 shades taking you through all seasons.

Burt's Bees All aglow Highlighter Stick shade Opal Mist 1905

Moisturising highlighter that not only adds glow is also good for your skin without being drying or cakey, this soft glowing stick gives a beautiful subtle sheen to cheeks, nose, forehead, collar bones or shoulders, in fact anywhere you want the light to hit, probably more suited to summer but for bare legs a little highlighter on the shin bone gives a  sunkissed effect to your tan. Available in 3 shimmering shades. I personally love this highlighter as it refuses to give the disco ball look, more of a candlelit glow.

These ALL aglow sticks refuse to sink into facial lines as highlighters often do, so they are not at all ageing and lift the complexion giving the illusion of radiant health.

Burt's Bees Liquid Lipstick 0.21oz shade 820 Coral Cove 

Probably one of the most pigmented liquid lip products I have ever used, glossy without being gooey or sticky, long lasting moisture with a subtle sheen, these lipsticks are so flattering, I even tried it without lip liner and although the shade is fairly prominent there was no feathering into lip lines. If you have ever experienced this you will know the pain! available in 12 shades.
