Beauty File: Burt's Bees 100% Natural Lip Crayon Review

I test drove two shades of the new Burt's Bees 100% Natural Lip Crayon and wanted to share the results with you.

The lip crayons are the latest in the the Burt's Bees lip color line.  The product is a chubby lip pencil but does not require sharpening. It has a creamy, semi sheer, finish that's in between glossy and matte (the company describes it as "semi-matte").  It goes on smoothly.  For you MAC lovers, you'll find the composition similar to lustre lipsticks, but a little bit less pigmented.  Below are swatches for Carolina Coast and Hawaiian Smolder. 

Carolina Coast // Hawaiian Smolder

 Top swatch is Carolina Coast, bottom swatch is MAC's Lovelorn lustre lipstick - very similar, could possibly be a dupe.

Style File: JCrew Work Wear Pieces

Sometimes, the easiest thing to throw on for the office is a good work-wear dress topped with a blazer or cardigan. It's a basic, feminine outfit for the office that requires minimal thought on those mornings were you're feeling nervous because you've got a big presentation or just four seconds to get out the door.

I like J.Crew dresses because they're well tailored/ constructed, the length is always appropriate, and they have a little bit of an extra design element that sets them apart from the basic corporate shift dress.
