Call off the search – the hunt for the ultimate lip balm with a dressed-up hint of tint is over. Thanks, Burt’s Bees, writes beauty editor Emma Robertson
As a lip balm obsessive, I’m never more than a pocket, desk drawer or handbag-grasp away from my nearest emergency top-up. So as the forever friend that never leaves my side, I’m more than a little evangelical about Burt’s Bees’ legendary tinted lip saviours. Protecting your pout from the outside world with a comfort blanket of natural ingredients (including lip-quenching beeswax, shea butter and botanical floral waxes), they also deliver in the style stakes, adding a shot of sheer, juicy-looking colour. I’m a fan of all five shades – right now I’m all about the springtime perkiness of Pink Blossom – while our own model-of-the-moment, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, is said to favour Hibiscus. Whichever you choose, cherry-pick your favourite and, read my lips, you’ll keep coming back for more.
