When you're traveling, wandering around a city for the day, every little bit of extra weight in your purse makes a difference. As a professional travel writer, I have to carry several cameras, chargers, adapters, lenses, etc. Often at night, I have the worst backaches after a day of hiking around! It isn't until I get home and heal for a couple of days that I remember that I've been carrying around too much in my bag. I certainly don't want to carry around a bunch of cosmetics on top of all that!
But, I've learned over and over again that it's important to look polished when traveling. I even learned in law school that people watch your mouth when you're talking, that it's important for women to wear lip cosmetics. Burt's Bees to the rescue!
Their new lip crayons happen to join that hottest trend wave in cosmetics. Lip crayons vary from brand to brand. Burt's Bees is chock full of beeswax, so they're not greasy and they don't slip off your lips. They're in matte/cream finishes, so they're appropriate for all occasions, even business and daytime events. It's wonderful to have a balm/color/lip pencil/self-sharpener all in one product!
Here's what they say about it:
Introducing six creamy, full-coverage shades of matte lip color in a modern crayon for truly beautiful lip color. Lightweight moisture for a comfortable, everyday wear formula infused with Shea Butter, Kendi Oil, and Jojoba Oil. It's color that truly cares for your lips!
• Creamy matte color and moisture-rich wear
• For everyday wear either alone or layered under a Lip Gloss or Lip Shine
• Precise application in a playful form without the hassle and mess of sharpening
• No added flavor or fragrance
• Hydrates and moisturizes lips, leaving them feeling soft and smooth
