Note: I am not getting paid for this review – this is all based on my experience that I decided to share with others.
I am allergic to so many things, including most beauty products, soaps, shampoos, lotions, etc. One manufacturer I have found that I do not have any issues with is Burt’s Bees. I have been using their products for almost 15 years now and continue to try every new product they come out with. What first thing that enticed me about Burt’s Bees was the fact the majority of their products are 100% (to almost 100%) all natural. I also like that the company does not test on animals. Animal testing is a hot button issue with me and I try my best to stick to products that do not test on animals whenever possible.
Burt’s Bees came out with a new line of makeup this year. In the past the company has been known for their lotions, soaps, lip balm, lipsticks and cleansers. I have been having issues with my usual eye make-up and I was very excited when I saw Burt’s came out with an entire line of eye makeup.
I have been using Burt’s Bees eye liner, mascara and eye shadow for a few weeks now and love the products. I haven’t had any allergic reactions when putting on this make-up like I have with other products. The eye liner goes on very smoothly as does the eye shadow. There have been other eye shadows that I have used that seem cakey, however this is not the case with the Burt’s Bees product. The colors go on very smoothly almost like you are painting your eye lids. It blends very well and lasts. The mascara wand takes out any excess mascara when applying to your eyelashes so you don’t get giant clumps and it dries very quickly so there isn’t any smudging.
The eye shadow comes in four different sets – shades include: Blooming Desert, Shimmering Nudes, Countryside Lavender and Dusky Woods. According to Burt’s Bees, the eye shadows are 100% natural and are made with bamboo, honey and Vitamin E.
The mascara product comes in Classic Black or Black Brown. The mascara is also 100% natural and is made from a formula of Jojoba Oil and naturally moisturizing Glycerin.
The eye liner comes in three shades – Soft Black, Warm Brown and Midnight Gray. It is 99.9% natural and is responsibly sourced from cedar wood.
