Lovely Thing # 3: Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer in Apricot.

I’ve been searching for the perfect fall lippie. I’m not into dark colors, seeing as my skin is so pale, and it’s still too hot on the west coast to think about anything approaching a wine or plum shade.

So, on a recent trip to Target I picked up this little beauty for $4.99. It’s the perfect combination of a lipstick and a lipgloss- shimmery but not too shimmery, and a gorgeous, richly pigmented peach shade. And the ingredients will make you even happier:

Ingredients (100% natural)
ricinus communis castor seed oil, helianthus annuus sunflower seed oil, beeswax, euphorbia cerifera wax, mentha piperita peppermint oil, lanolin, theobroma cacao cocoa seed butter, copernicia cerifera wax, butyrospermum parkii shea butter, fragaria ananassa strawberry seed oil, prunus armeniaca apricot kernel oil, ribes nigrum black currant seed oil, rosmarinus officinalis rosemary leaf extract, sambucus nigra elderberry seed oil, tocopherol, canola oil, glycine soja soybean oil, mica, iron …

Best of all, it has a peppermint smell and slight tingle on your lips. Welcome on a day like today (106 degrees, I kid you not!) but also a great wintry scent for those in cooler climes.

You might have noticed I quite like Burt’s Bees!


Peppermint Yumminess!
