hi there pretties here is my Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Rose Review and Swatch!
Liptember started, not surprisingly, on the first of September, but better late than never, right? Liptember is a month-long campaign that runs every September, and aims to raise funds for women’s mental health issues. The campaign encourages women to buy and wear the official Liptember ’Lippy’ throughout the whole month of September, gaining sponsorship from family, friends and co-workers (kind of like a much less uncomfortable 40 Hour Famine… I remember tearing through bags of barley sugar like they were going out of fashion the one year I attempted it). All funds raised are donated to two charities: the Centre for Women’s Mental Health at the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne and Lifelife Australia.
If you’re intersested, there’s a few different ways you can participate in Liptember. You can just buy the official Liptember ’Lippy,’ which this year is Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Rose from Myer, Lorna Jane, or online for $10AUD, with all funds going to the Liptember charities. You could buy the ‘Lippy’ and register as a fundraiser and badger your family, friends and co-workers to sponsor you to wear the ‘Lippy’ throuighout the month of September. Or, you can just cheer on from the sidelines and sponsor a fundraiser on the website.
Did I mention the Liptember ’Lippy’ comes with a free badge? If that doesn’t convince you, I don’t know what will. Here’s a quick arm swatch of this year’s Liptember ’Lippy,’ Burt’s BeesTinted Lip Balm in Rose, possibly the most inoffensive, easy-to-wear-for-a-month colour ever:
