Winter is full of fun dark lip colors, but let’s be honest, we won’t wear them all the time. To counter the days or nights you go bold, you will want a few softer colors and easy-to-wear lip oils. ‘Lip oil?’ you say? YES – lip oil. Burt’s Bees‘ (brand new!) lip oils are shiny and slick like gloss but not at all sticky. The new line is made up of 6 awesome shades including varying shades of mauve, red, and plum. The 3 subtle lip colors we show off below are our faves. However, you will probably keep going back for more, and soon enough stock your beauty bar with every shade.
Just like everyone’s favorite Burt’s Bees products, the lip oils are ultra soothing and hydrating. Isn’t that what we all want? A lip color that nourishes our pout as much as it looks good? This is thanks to ingredients like Coconut and Meadowfoam seed oils. Care and color – talk about double duty! Leave it to the lip & skincare geniuses to create beautiful makeup too. Now, you can start to see why we love them.
The first shade we tried was Caramel Cloud. Yes, it’s as soft and yummy as the name. The sleek design is twist up.. so just click, click, click, and the pretty color is ready to use. Swipe it on and fall in love with the sheer shade. We have recently been loving more grown-up variations of nudes like this one that is more mauve than pink.
Next, we went for something a little darker. We all love to feel a little adventurous with our makeup sometimes! A purple lip color is a great way to do that when testing the waters, which is why we love Misted Plum. It has just the right amount of tint to to the trick! Plus, it’s flattering on any skin tone.
Rustling Rose (how accurate are these names?!) is definitely the romantic pick. This is the shade we love when we want to feel slightly more done up. It’s a little bit read, and a lot pretty. Just swipe this on to add a little something extra to your everyday makeup routine or layer it over a lipstick for extra gloss.
Another GREAT reason we love Burt’s Bees lip oils? They are made from 100% natural ingredients and they don’t contain any parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or SLS. As fans of clean beauty products in every category, this is a huge perk for us. Plus, the packaging is completely recyclable. Win win.
We also love that they’re available at Target – which everyone knows is our favorite spot to shop. Thus, you have easy access to all the pretty shades. Plus, you can see them up close! In addition to the shades mentioned above, Target also carries Showering Sunset, Whispering Orchid, and Crimson Breeze. All of the sheer shades are perfect for every day wear. Just pick the tint you are in the mood for and go! Try them all and let us know what you think!
