These $7 Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms Are The Bee’s Knees

Published in: Drugstore Beauty Finds, Makeup, Product Reviews

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom on lips

Burt sure keeps his bees busy! Their latest creation, a concoction of 100% natural ingredients, gives a soothing sheer tint to lips.

Available in six sheer shades ranging from pink to red to neutral, these Tinted Lip Balms ($7 each) moisturize and nourish lips with soft flower waxes, shea butter and added vitamin E.

What the Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms DON’T contain: phthalates, parabens and sodium lauryl sulfate

The ones I’ve been wearing lately are peachy Tiger Lily and Pink Blossom. Both feel smooth, light and non-sticky on my lips, and I dig their light, sweet raspberry flavor and scent.

Everything Old Is New Again with the MAC Jeanius Collection

Published in: MAC Makeup

OH, what I wouldn’t give to be able to fit into my acid wash Guess overalls from seventh grade. I’d wear them to the MAC counter on March 3 (with one strap up and one down, of course) to welcome the limited edition MAC Jeanius Collection. 🙂

To any and all denim angels listening, please take pity on my 35-year-old bum. It longs to fit into a pair of size 7 juniors pants.

SIDENOTE: J. Brand 811s are my fall-back plan (petite shorties, you gotta give this cut a try).

Do you recall Chanel Jeans de Chanel?

I’m pretty stoked about MAC’s 16-piece denim-themed collection for eyes, lips, cheeks and nails, even if we’ve seen similar themes like it before.

I still cry myself to sleep at night for missing 2003’s Chanel Jeans de Chanel.

More recently, there was also last fall’s Bobbi Brown Denim & Roses Collection

The MAC Riveting Collection

Shoot, even MAC has kindasorta tried jeans on before with last year’s Riveting Collection.

Well, it’s not directly tied to denim, but blue jeans DO have rivets.

Okay, so maybe that’s a stretch…

Even before makeup companies were jumping on the blue jean bandwagon, other companies were doing denim, like Versace with their Blue Jeans Cologne from back in the day ($29.99 at Target).

Even Merle Haggard got in on the action. Remember Make-Up and Faded Blue Jeans?

Whew! It’s been a full on MAC swatch fest here at Casa MBB today. 🙂 Here’s the last of the bunch — six of the 14 new MAC Sheen Supreme Lipsticks ($14.50 each). Smooth, creamy, and with a light vanilla scent and flavor, these new lippes feel a lot like the discontinued MAC Slimshines. Expect to see the Sheen Supremes kissing lips at MAC stores and counters on March 3.

Denim clad divas, please momentarily tear your eyes away from those Pajama Jeans (don’t lie, I know you want a pair!), and take a second to check out these swatches and product photos of some pieces from the new MAC Jeanius Collection (launches March 3 in North America; some time in March internationally).

For starters, and I write this with a tinge of sadness, the pattern on the eyeshadows is just an overspray… 🙁
