EVENT - Burt's Bees Lipstick x Shades

by - Monday, April 04, 2016

Last month,  to celebrate Burt's Bees' new Lipsticks, a lipstick art exhibition called Shades was held at the Arta Gallery in Toronto. Burt's Bees' new Lipstick has 14 shades and are made with 100% natural ingredients. At the gallery, attendees were able to view some fantastic artwork, print a picture, and swatch the many shades available and pick one to bring home.
There were other products on display for solely display purposes. (Not sure if these were later sold as I went to the exhibit pretty early during the week.)
What made this gallery extra special is that all the art work was made using the Burt's Bees Lipsticks. If a painting tickled your fancy, you were allowed to bid on it until the cap of $500 was reached. Here are some of my favourites!
I liked how these two paintings used a blowtorch and a hair dryer to melt the lipsticks.
The detail and shading for these two paintings were phenomenal.
There were so many shades to choose from and to pick one right then and there was so difficult. I think I swatched all the shades at least twice, but I finally decided on Lily Lake - a beautiful mauvy pink.
(Sorry for the horrible focus!)
I'm not a stranger to Burt's Bees products, but I definitely don't think this should be considered a lipstick. It is quite similar to their other tinted lip products - smooth, sheer and buildable. It's great for everyday use when you need a bit of tint on your lips, but don't expect full or opaque coverage.

What's your favourite Burt's Bees Product?

Let's be friends!
