Hello girls...I was pretty excited about "Burt's Bees" 100% natural ingredients lipsticks. Burt's Bee lipstick soften and condition your lips all day long because of their natural formula. Today I'm reviewing shade "Lily Lake 530"

It comes in a brown square tube which is not very sturdy but I like the honeycomb design along the sides of the tube.
