I remember saying that I’m not a big fan of lip gloss especially those that are sticky and gunky but I started liking them now because they’re easy to apply and you can get a really pretty lip finish from them in seconds. Sometimes, that’s all you need when you’re rushing around in the morning like a chicken without a head?
I enjoy some of their other products and I love the all natural aspect of Burt’s bees. So, far it hasn’t let me down. So yay!
I got this Burt’s Bees at Walmart and they’re in the shades Starry Night and Nearly Dusk. You can also find them at US Target, Walgreen, Rite Aids, Ulta, drugstores and pretty everywhere. I think these are available in 12 glossy shades but I could be wrong. Need to go back to check again.
Let’s start with Starry Night lip gloss. The color is a deep purple and shiny when first applied but it fades slightly after a few moments. Even after all the shine is gone, there is still a nice subtle color. The formula is not sticky and it’s comfortable on my lips. This product kinda hugs lips and does offer moisture.
I notice the tube itself is pretty pitiful. You aren’t getting much product especially if you’re buying this at the regular price tag at CAD$12-$13 depending the areas. Note that the packaging is of plastic tube with a doe foot applicator. I also like to add that the packaging is cute with the honey comb lid.
I’m happy that both the formula of the Starry Night and Nearly Dusk are nicely pigmented.
You need to dip the doe foot applicator a few times to get enough product to have an even coverage. Those who hate getting massive amounts of product on the wand at once will love these.
I do enjoy the consistency of the formula. I don’t feel the stickiness at all. It feels really comfortable on lips which is a bonus point for a picky lip gloss like me.
Here is the doe foot applicator. The color of the Nearly Dusk is pretty and glossy. I like it! I just want to put this out – both of these products have a natural scents but I notice that the Starry Night has stronger scents even though both are of the same formula [100% Natural]. They also have a taste that is sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. I want to say it tastes like honey, but it’s so subtle that I can’t quite put my finger on it.
Unlike some pigmented glosses, these don’t leave unevenly stained lips behind once they are worn off! Another point I want to mention is the finishing look. It gives a nice subtle sheer finish that leaves your lips looking moisturized and fresh.
There you have the color swatches. On your left is the Starry Night and Nearly Dusk on your right. You can see the shimmers on the swatch.
- Starry Night is a sheer deep purple wine (left)
- Nearly Dusk is a sheer medium mauve with subtle light purple shimmer (right)
Overall, I find that the price is of a steeper end for a drugstore brand and if you’ve already have your lip gloss, then you can skip this one. But for those who truly love sheer washes of glossy pigment on their lips, but also want moisturizing benefits, then this would be a great product to grab. Definitely give it a good look.
