Do you have any plans for Valentine’s Day? We usually skip the crowded restaurants and make a cozy dinner at home, but it’s still nice to dress up a bit. To set the mood, we teamed up with Burt’s Bees and Amazon.com to try three beautiful lipsticks. Which would suit your personality best?
Burt’s Bees, the natural brand that was founded in Maine over 30 years ago, recently introduced a full line of cosmetics on Amazon.com, including these Satin Lipsticks. Their 100% natural formulation, infused with red raspberry seed oil and Vitamin E, offers eight-hour moisture AND color that lasts throughout the day. The range of colors is so lovely, and they feel really rich and creamy. The best part? They are priced at around $7 each.
Lipstick #1: Doused Rose. This pink hue is subtle but gives lips a polished look. Going to a movie? Planning a daytime date? Staying in? This would be a pretty pick.
Lipstick #2: Suede Splash. This cool shade reminds us of the brown lipsticks that ruled 90s beauty looks — and have made a big comeback recently. Wouldn’t it be fun for a party, bar or concert?
Lipstick #3: Russet River. What could be more classic for Valentine’s Day than a rich red? This version is sexy and daring while still looking kissable and fresh. The red would be perfect for a dinner date or a romantic winter walk.
Bonus for readers: Get 20% off Burt’s Bees lipsticks on Amazon.com with the code 20ACUPOFJO, good through February 15th. They’re so pretty and moisturizing; we’d highly recommend them.
Thoughts? Which color (or colors) would you try?
