I’ve had two of these sitting on my desk for weeks in part of my collection for this mini series and I hadn’t used wither until today. I expected a very sheer wash of colour and a balmy texture with a fruity scent.. much the same as most of these crayon style lip products but it couldn’t be further removed from that. The finish is a little creamy but it’s far more opaque than you might think and not at all balmy. Burts Bee’s isn’t a high end brand but it’s not super cheap either and packaging aside had you given me this is a plain tube I’d have thought it was a very low budget product. It’s waxy in both texture and scent – I mean it smells like an old school wax crayon – and just not pleasant to apply or to wear.
As I said I do have two of these so I will be including the other later in the month and we’ll see whether it’s the whole line or just this one that’s a dud but all in all.. a disappointment! I expected to love this and for it to be one of those handbag staples for those times you just need a little colour on the go but it’s more like a cheap lipstick in crayon form – and that’s barely even fair anymore since cheap doesn’t necessarily mean bad thanks to brands like Makeup Revolution.. this is just.. not good.
