burts bees lipstick tulip tide iced iris magenta rush swatch review

Yesterday I posted about the Burt's Bees Lip Crayons, and today I am here with a review on their lipsticks! Originally I was planning on doing them as one big review, but I figured it was better to split them up into two seperate posts so I could go into a bit more detail about the formulas. Keep reading for lip swatches and my thoughts on the formula!

Again, the packaging features honeycomb details and a sturdy brown plastic tube. Retailing around that $10 drugstore price point, these offer a good quality product and decent pigmentation. I found this formula to be much more moisturizing than the lip crayons, though I also found that these had a shorter wear time. I find these so easy to reapply that that really does not bother me. I only have high wear time expectations from liquid matte lipsticks, and from really high end products. As the lipstick wears it fades nicely. Magenta Rush left a bit of a stain on me, and when the other two paler shades faded I didn't really notice anything that stuck out in terms of how it looked on me.

Magenta Rush

Tulip Tide is a pretty bubblegum pink with a bit of a blue-purple undertone. I did not find this flattering on me, mainly because I have rather pigmented lips and pale shades like this tend to wash me out. I had similar results with Iced Iris though this was more of a pale purple with a frosted sheen to it. Again, I didn't think that this was the best shade on me, though it felt nice on my lips. The big winner for me was Magenta Rush. I love shades in this deep pink berry family, and found it to be really flattering on my pale, neutral-undertoned skin. As it faded it left a stain, which I enjoyed as there wasn't a single moment of "right now I am wearing lipstick" and "where did it go?". This shade has made its way into my purse so I will be wearing it from time to time over the coming weeks!

Have you tried any of these lipsticks? Which colour is your favourite?
