AMW Reviews: Burt's Bees Lip Crayons

How much do you love lip products?  A lot?  How many brands can you name at the moment?  A lot still right?
But how many can you name to me that you can be 101% sure to be safe?  Even when you're pregnant?  Nursing?  
Not a lot right?
Well, Burt's Bees brand definitely came to mind!  As much as I love Burt's Bees for creating safe and natural products with ingredients you can find even in your kitchen, my only complaint from them in the past is their lack of "colors".  I know they do have a couple of my favorite lip products but when I want intensity, I just had to go to other brands.


I was so excited when I learned I had to do a make-up training for the Beauty Bar Staffs last month and the product focus are Burt's Bees Lip Crayons --- "You guys have Lip Crayons now???"  --- was my first question.

Thanks to May, I got first dibs!  I was able to test all 5 products before the workshop!  As excited as I was to share to everyone about it, I have to keep mum for a couple more weeks until they are available in the market --- see?  AskMeWhats can be trusted! :P 

So yeah, if you were one of those who asked me in person: "What lipstick are you wearing?" and I had this weird look and changed topic --- the answer is Burt's Bees Lip Crayons!

Yehey!  No more secrets!  Because they are OUT!!! 

Overview of all 5 shades --- can you pick your favorite?

There are a total of 6 shades internationally but the Philippine market only have 5.  It wasn't a bit deal because all these 5 shades are good enough for every lipstick loving gals!  You get pink, peach/coral, brown and red!

That's all we need for the ever-changing, lipstick loving Pinays!

Burt's Bees Lip Crayons says ---
Creamy, full-coverage shades of matte lip color in a modern crayon for truly beautiful lip color. Lightweight moisture for a comfortable, everyday wear formula infused with Shea Butter, Kendi Oil, and Jojoba Oil. It's color that truly cares for your lips!
  • Creamy matte color and moisture-rich wear
  • For everyday wear either alone or layered under a Lip Gloss or Lip Shine
  • Precise application in a playful form without the hassle and mess of sharpening
  • No added flavor or fragrance

AMW says ---
  • SAFE to use even for pregnant, nursing moms!  Safe enough to kiss your babies and toddlers!  
  • Crayons so very easy to use.
  • No need to sharpen.  
  • Natural fragrance.
  • Matte.
  • Pigmentation is build-able and can be layered with your favorite gloss or lipstick.
  • Multi-functional.  Safe enough to be applied on cheeks! 
  • Very easy to use!
  • Can create your own shades by mixing and matching 2-3 shades.
  • Some of the shades may not be extremely pigmented so you need to apply several layers if you want obvious color.
  • Wears 3-4 hours max!  Re-application is needed which I don't mind because this is so easy to tote around.

Safe.  Build-able pigmentation Lip Crayons that can be used by everyone!  Some of the lighter colored shades may not be as pigmented but can definitely be layered!

  • If you want a more natural effect, pick Niagara Overlook or Hawaiian Smolder!  This is the best "MLBB" (My Lips But Bette) shade.
  • Carolina Coast is a nude pink shade.  Best used when you have heavy eye makeup.
  • For a more obvious pout, go for Redwood Forest and Napa Vineyard.  Napa Vineyard is a bluish red shade making your teeth appears whiter while Redwood Forest is perfect if you are just starting out using red lipsticks.
  • Top with your favorite lip gloss if you want fuller-looking lips.
  • Best applied directly as crayons!  No need for lip brush as the sharp tip can give precise application. 
  • Be careful when putting back the cap as you may accidentally hit the tip of the lip crayons.
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Lipstick wearers who want to feel safe with the lip products they use! 

Where to purchase and how much?
At local Beauty Bars for Php699.00 (approx $15.88) each.

Niagara Overlook
Looks super natural!  I tend to pick this on casual weekends.

Carolina Coast
A soft baby pink shade that would look really well on medium to darker skin tone.
This is a cool-toned pink that is best matched with dark eye makeup if you have fair skin like I do!

Hawaiian Smolder
My To-Go-To daily lip color!  This can warm the whole face.
This shade works for ALL skin tone.

Redwood Forest
Another great lip color to try if you want "oomph" without the drama!  This has a rust-like reddish brown tint so perfect for all skin tone.  I can imagine this looking great even for users with dark complexion!  The effect is just so "friendly"!  

Napa Vineyard
A perfect red lip color!  This is the darkest and most pigmented lip crayon from Burt's Bees to date!  I love how this can whiten the teeth, brighten up the face even without much makeup on!  The perfect night time lip color too if you add a few more layers!

How do you like the new Lip Crayons from Burt's Bees?
