Talk About Cosmetics - Honeybee Gardens Truly Natural Lipstick in South Beach

Lipstick and I have a bond that runs pretty deep. Nothing makes a sick girl, which I am, or anyone, really, feel more put together than a swipe or two of a flattering shade of lipstick. There is something really special about lipstick and the brightening and uplifting effect that it has on the face.

We all have a go-to shade that makes us feel happy, healthy, and ready to take on the world and mine is coral. When I saw the three new gorgeous shades from Honeybee Gardens I fell hard for South Beach, a matte described as a bright coral with a red undertone, and knew I couldn’t live without it!

Okay, that’s dramatic, but I really wanted it and when I saw that Honeybee Gardens was looking for ambassadors I reached out to the company and was selected. If you’re not familiar with Honeybee Gardens you should head over to their website to learn more about the company and their offerings because their range is full of beautiful, healthy, and affordable products that are never tested on animals. This green brand is gaining popularity in the mainstream beauty world, as well, and can be found at big box stores like beauty giant Ulta and Target.

Let’s talk more about the South Beach shade of their line of creamy, dreamy, and easy to apply Truly NaturalLipsticks. For a cool $12.99 you’re getting a product that is luxurious and pigmented; seeming more like a premium product that’s a bit heavy on the bank account rather than one that retails for under $15. You’re also getting an all-star roster of good for you and good for the planet (vegan, too!) ingredients.

This lipstick glides on like a silky serum providing the lips with comfortable color that lasts and lasts. If you’ve been around Beautiful Basics for a while now you already know this but if you’re new here (welcome! I’m so happy to have you here!) I have ridiculously and highly reactive lips that don’t take kindly to many products but this particular lipstick is so gentle and hydrating that my lips sing a happy song and do a little dance once I apply it. Sorry, I got a little carried away there. To put it simply, my lips love this stuff and I love the beautiful color!

I’ve been in love with the Ilia Tinted Lip Conditioner in Shell Shock for a couple of years now but this little gem is a near perfect dupe at half the price!
