Putting on lip gloss is really one of the easiest, commitment-free make-up items to apply — no mirror necessary, no time investment, and it travels well. Due to my hectic schedule, I’m always running around, so gloss has been something that I always carry with me, as it moisturizes and gives a dash, or a lot of color.
I recently tested out the Burt’s Bees Super Shiny Lip Gloss in one of the two new shades, Juicy Peach (the other is Sheer Lemon), and found it to have a pleasant citrus scent that wasn’t too overpowering, and felt less sticky/more smooth than other lip glosses I’ve tried. If you’re not a “shine” addict (I’m not) have no fear, the gloss isn’t heavily saturated with color nor sheen, so it’s actually more of a natural look. Burt’s Bees lives up to their eco-friendly standards with the lip gloss; it’s composed of 100% natural ingredients such as sunflower, almond, and castor seed oils, with the packaging made of 25% post-consumer recycled plastic. Retailing for $6.99, its definitely a great bargain compared to other glosses of similar caliber and double the price (but usually minus the natural ingredient factor!).
