Natural Alternative To Lipstick: Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon Swatches

I don’t know how much lipstick the average woman swallows but I have been thinking a lot about the ingredients in my lipstick. But can you get a natural product which has the same coverage and results? Enter Burt’s Bees Lip Crayon – a creamy lip balm crayon, with full coverage colour.

Now I loooove me a lip crayon – the love affair all started with the Clinique Chubby Sticks and the pencil format just makes application SO easy, especially when you’re on the go. 

You don’t even need a mirror to apply them. You don’t even need to be sober to apply them. So far, so good.

The Burt’s Bees Lip Crayons come in 6 colours, covering everything you need, from your everyday nude, trendy lilac and all the way through to your showstopping reds. CANNOT DECIDE MY FAVOURITE.

I’ve got my hands on 5 crayons today, check out the shades!


Each shade is beautifully creamy and wearable – even on MY dry, flaky lips! These lip crayons are perfect for those of you who don’t like the feeling of being “done up”, because it really does just feel like a lip balm

The colour payoff is fantastic, and its so easy just to ladle on with reckless abandon. Oh, and these comfortable lip crayons are natural, with no nasties. What else would you need?! These will definitely be replacing some of the lipsticks in my collection! (okay, I’m lying, I can never bin anything from my hoard)

Find more about the lip crayon range on the Burt’s Bees website– RRP £8.99 but I’ve found them for £7.99 incl delivery on Amazon here.

What do YOU think? Are all-natural beauty products as good as the real non-natural deal?! Are you a Burt’s Bees fan? Tweet me your thoughts @FaceValueBlog or send me a comment on Facebook!
