Welcome to Day 7 of the Bloggers Christmas Beauty Brawl where a whole host of bloggers are sharing their thoughts on a whole range of beauty products and make up. It will be a fun way to find out what we think and what we like and don’t like and maybe even find some new products to try. It’s a bit of a different series of posts for me, but I am not just a Mummy Blogger…
Day 7 is a lipstick
Burts Bees Lip Crayon RRP £8.99
I am pretty fussy about lipsticks and what I use, and at the moment have one I use for daytime and one for night. I only wear red lipstick and I stil to two brands I know and love. Weird, I know.
Anyway, for this bit of the brawl, I went and got myself a new lipstick from a brand I don’t normally use for make up.
This is a lip crayon type lipstick, which I thought I would love, because I like the colour. It’s a nice looking product and medium range for price (I have a cheapie lipstick and a pricey one, currently) but I was very disappointed because it’s a very dry texture for me, and made my lips very dry. I think it might work if you use a lip balm or gloss on top of the colour but I don’t like doing that (because frankly I find it too much hassle) but if you want a matt and dryer type of lipstick this would be perfect for you. I actually gave this one to a friend, after I tried it and didn’t like it. I love the colour and packaging but just couldn’t handle the product.
So – price 80/100, packaging – 90/100 and product 45/100
I will be back tomorrow for foundation…
