You guys know how much I love a good natural makeup product, so when I saw that Burt’s Bees had released a new cosmetics line, I ran over to my local drugstore and purchased a few products. You know, ahem, for the blog. It’s wonderful to have a natural line that is more easily accessible and at a budget friendly price, and I definitely found some winners in the collection. Below you’ll find my thoughts on each product I purchased as well as a video discussing my first impressions each product. Let’s talk makeup!
Sign me up! When I first heard about the Bite Beauty Multisticks, I was intrigued. They are marketed to be used as eye shadow, blush, and lipstick, and while that sounds great, I was a bit skeptical. I love Bite Beauty for their incredibly good ingredients, so I decided to order one of the colors and put it to the test, helped along by seeing how pretty they looked in Ashley’s video.
Over the past year, I’ve become more and more interested in natural and green beauty products. There are so many amazing eco-friendly brands on the market, so lately instead of trying out the latest Sephora finds, I’ve been exploring the green beauty world. As I researched the different brands that create these products, I ran across Red Apple Lipstick, and they stood out to me for a few reasons, one of which being that they are gluten free. My mom recently found out she has a wheat allergy, and can’t wear makeup that contains gluten, so I wanted to try out the brand both because it looked amazing, and I knew she would appreciate some information on how the products performed- we’re both pretty picky when it comes to makeup!
I love mixing up natural skincare products using amazing ingredients. It’s kind of like my grown-up version of a really fun science experiment. Summer often leaves me with pretty dry lips, so when I found myself mixing up a quick lip scrub, I thought I would share my recipe with you guys! I’ve tried Lush’s popular lip scrub, and honestly, I prefer to make my own. Using the basic base of coconut oil and sugar, you can add any of your favorite scents and customize the recipe to suit you. Rosewater is a favorite for me, so that’s what I’ve mixed up here, and I think it complements the light fragrance of the coconut oil nicely.
