Au Naturale

I have always loved natural, nude, washed out pail pink lips.  Always.  And I have just discovered the perfect little combo to achieving this look.  New Burt's Bees tinted lip balm topped off with a swipe of Rosebud.  I was a little disappointed that the actual Burt's Bees tube wasn't as chunky as the packaging - I admittedly initially bought the balm because I thought it was going to be like the old school fat chunky Bonne Bell lipsmackers that I coveted, as a child, from my favorite blonde and beautiful babysitter, Jenni - loved those chunky sticks.  But back to our subject, Burt's Bees in HONEYSUCKLE instantly gives the au natural look and the Rosebud just adds a little extra gloss. 

 Keep this goodie in your bag!  
Oh, and did I mentioned, it's 100% natural and $6.99 at Walgreens?

Sounds perfect. I'll pick some up!
I love rosebud, but my fav daily use is Laura Mercier lip balm. It's shiney without being at all sticky.

Ooh, thanks for this! My current attempt at a natural lip leaves me dry after a few hours. I have been wanting to try something new, so this is perfect!
