Not my first choice

This is one Burt’s product that I’m not very thrilled with. It has a few good points but the main purpose here is to be lip colouring and in this department it fails.

The pigment here isn’t dense enough when applied so it ends up barley providing any kind of colour unless it goes on so thick that, well it doesn’t work for me so there’s no point in applying. It goes on easy enough and has a rather dull appearance to it which makes it not very useful as a lip gloss either. In addition to the above, I found that the applicator isn’t the nicest to use. First of all, when winding it to move the stick up the barrel it doesn’t run smooth, it sort of sticks and binds, plus the square bottom is awkward to turn. Its just not made with any kind of ergonomic design but it does look nice with it’s honey bee wax design.

I’m sure some people have had better luck with this than I did.

On the up side lips feel ok after having it applied all day. There’s been no reaction and there is no scent I can discern, at least nothing chemical wise. It’s probably better than the competition when you compare what’s in it but it just doesn’t cut it. Would I get it again, no.
