Finding a good everyday lipstick can oftentimes result in a lot of trial and error. You want to find the right shade and perfect amount of color to make your lips pop, but so often that “perfect” shade can feel drying on lips. I’ve searched high and low, and when I found this Burt’s Bee’s lipstick, I knew I found the one. I’ve heard so much about their moisturizing lipsticks from fellow bloggers and make-up artists, so when I finally got my hands on them… I understood why!

First of all, it goes on a like a dream and is made with 100% natural ingredients. The formula goes on sheer at first, which allows you to build your color by layering it on to really make your lips pop. And, it’s incredibly moisturizing- so much so that it feels like I just have on a really great lip balm! I chose a plum shade called Wine Wave, and it lasted the entire day for me, with zero-to-minimal touch ups. The best part? It’s really affordable and you’re going to want one in every color- and it’s the perfect little stocking stuffer! And what pairs better with the perfect lip than flawless skin? I rarely wear heavy foundation anymore so I’m a firm believer in a good BB Cream. This Burt’s Bees BB Cream has SPF 15 which is great for living in sunny Los Angeles (SPF is always needed). It’s made with natural ingredients, like Noni Extract, and it enhances your skin while evening it out and firming it as well. It feels super lightweight, which is perfect for that no-makeup makeup look.

Thanks to Burt’s Bees for sponsoring this post. Because of their partnership, we were able to make a generous donation to The Burts’s Bees Foundation, which supports honeybee health! Each purchase from BurtsBees.com also donates 10% to the foundation!

  • Kris says:

    The best part of 2016 has actually been the entire year. My daughter is now a senior in high school and I have been savoring every day and moment that we share together before she heads off to college next year. Even the little moments. I’m going to miss them all! I’m SO blessed that she and I have a close relationship — even throughout her teen years. My baby girl won’t be a baby much longer. So Chriselle, enjoy your moments with little Chloe now. Other moms used to always tell me that the years will fly by, but I just couldn’t imagine that to be true because my daughter was so young at the time. BUT it truly DOES fly by. Merry Christmas!

It made me realize that time grows with us.. and memories are left behind for us to remember. Thus, Big Bang gift to their fans is the best part of 2016!!

    Chriselle,

    The best part of 2016 was spending more time with my grandma, despite the situation we were in. All I want is to have my grandma closer to home, which was the case for a few weeks. This made my year 🙂

    I absolutely love Burts Bees! I’m so happy for you that you got to partner up with them. I’ve been eyeing their lip colors for a while now but now I’m convinced to purchase. I haven’t found too many nice lip colors that are both MOISTURIZING and don’t look like a gloss. I like the Urban Decay sheer colors, but this is half the price–that’s a steal! You’ve had so many highlights this year, so I’d like to know what the best part of your year was. Perhaps bringing Chloe to see her great grandparents?

  • Tania Dawood says:

    The best part of 2016 was being a surrogate for the first time. I am a divorced mom of three teen girls and I decided to become a surrogate. I wanted to help a family realize their dream of having a baby. I was matched with an amazing couple and gave birth to a beautiful healthy baby girl on June 1, 2016. The most amazing and magical experience for me was seeing the parents see their baby for the first time, when I pushed that baby out and the mommy saw her baby for the first time with tears streaming down her face, it was the most loving experience and it made my heart burst with happiness. It was the best thing I have ever done and it is something that will stay with me for the rest of my life. The fact that my daughters were so supportive of me throughout the process truly made it that more memorable.

    Thank you,
    Tania Dawood

  • Danielle WU says:

    The best part of 2016 for me personally was purchasing and receiving my wedding gown! My husband and I (we’re technically married but have yet to walk down an isle due to military travel obligations) started planning our wedding at the end of 2015, and I’ve spent the better part of 2016 getting all the details in order. The biggest struggle was finding the perfect dress, I must have tried on 50 or so but never really loved a single one of them. And then I found it on an Australian dress website made for buying an selling gently used gowns. It was half my budget, brand new, and the perfect size. Once I recieved it and put it on it was kind of hard to take it off. No one warns you that you’ll want to live in the dress if it’s perfect… but alas, head to toe sequins and beads is a little much for day to day wear!
    It’s hanging in the garment bag waiting to be altered, and I look at it everyday like it’s magic. It’s been the best part of my year for sure, and I know the best part of 2017 will be my wedding day!

  • Sarah T. says:

    2016 was quite a year and almost making it impossible for me to choose just one part.
    I think one of my favourite moments that has one of the top spots is reconnecting with an old friend I met over 7 years ago but sadly lost touch with. We both lived in different parts of the worlds and lived our own lives and this summer our paths crossed again. By coincidence we were at the same place at once and decided to meet. I was completely nervous, I had no idea if it was going to be awkward after such a long time. What a relief it was when we saw each other and it was not awkward, even though familiarity was still there, it was like meeting a brand new person. We both share the love for music and that’s what really connected us that day we met, it was a music festival that we went to. We shared stories of what we’ve up to the past years and what our plans are in for the future. It’s amazing to think back to that day. We’ve barely spent a day apart since then. It’s safe to say I found my best friend and who I’ve fallen in love with.

  • Miriam Mekhane says:

Whether it be about family, friends, or love I found out I can be quite the cry baby. And in 2016 I’ve realized that I’m okay with that. That’s my personal, emotional makeup. I look forward to learning more about who I am in 2017!

    I never did the college version of “spring break” ( I was never a huge party animal and I always used that time to catch up on sleep and get ahead with work). But as it was my senior year, I decided to go on spring break with my big group of best friends to Miami, Florida. It was a blast and definitely the best and most memorable part of 2016. #12DaysGiveaway

So the best part about 2016 for me isn’t a particular event or thing, but it’s just knowing that we went through it all together as a family. And that we all came out stronger and hopefully wiser too.

    It’s hard to pick just one moment of 2016 to declare my favorite or the best but for me it was getting to travel with my boyfriend. I love a good adventure and having him as my travel companion makes everything so much better. He’s more adventurous than I, but with him I get to do things I would normally not do.

    Love Burt’s Bee products – I’ve always kept a few of their lip balm around the house!

  • Kimberly Wong says:

    2016 has been tough on me. I’ve become a senior at work and had to supervise the new juniors which had no working experience. I had to teach them from scratch and it wasn’t easy. So much that I blamed myself for not being good enough when they happened to make repeated mistakes. Bottled up stress leads to anxiety and I was a little depressed. But during those times, my family and fiance stood by me. They helped me overcome it all. Nobody can become an “A” student overnight. It comes with a lot of practice, hard work, determination and believing that its possible. Eventhough 2016 has been rough on me, I had to be thankful for those around me, for believing in me and for loving me as I am. Best part of 2016 is God has blessed me with this opportunity to improve myself. It really is a blessing in disguise. I believe that God didn’t send you problems you can’t face or people you can’t handle. When someone comes into your life, God sent them for a reason. It’s either a lesson or blessing.

    Love,
    Kimmy <3

    Those colours are gorgeous! And congrats on the donation! The best part of 2016 must be me finishing school and finally entering a new chapter of my life. While i do have to say this year has been full of hard times, frustration, terror and more and I’m more than happy to see this year coming to an end. But still finishing school was both the best part of this year and also the scariest. So yes some mixed feeling about this year but i’m excited for what’s to come!

    This year has been really tough for me, there has been lots of highs and lows. Surely my favourite part of this year was summer -not only because it’s my favourite season – but also because I finished my last year of school with the maximum mark and it started a new phase of my life.

    My favorite part of 2016 was getting married to my wonderful hubby 🙂 It has been a perfect year every day after. I didn’t think it could get any more perfect but it just might with your recommendation for these lipsticks and make-up products. I’ve always wanted some good for the earth/all natural skin and make-up products, but with the few I’ve tried, I’ve been sorely disappointed. I had put of trying Burt’s Bees because I assumed they would fall into the same category – I’m glad I was wrong and I’m so excited to add these to my collection!

  • Anita Amponsa says:

  • Jin Jung says:

  • Roseann says:

    The best part about 2016 was realizing things…(yes, very Kylie Jenner of me to say), but she was right. I learned a lot about myself this year. I’m still in the process of trying to figure out what exactly I want to pursue in life, but I’m realizing that life is full of trial and error. In 2016, I have felt more inspired than ever before, which is weird to say because I’m probably still the same person I was last year. It’s been a lot of self-evaluation and care (me time) this year which I think it honestly the best thing. I’ve always been so self conscious and worried about what people think of me that I acted way too conscientious. The self-realization really allowed me to open up, make new friends, and live life day by day.

  • Kathy says:

    In my opinion 2016 had more bad then good- I guess the best part was the Olympics.

Helping this family after they tried for so many years to have a baby makes my heart happy knowing their family is finally complete. What a blessing and what a life changing experience for me.

    The fact that I can’t think of a particular event either means 2016 for me was the pits or a constant high.
