Burt’s Bees Moisturizing Lipstick Review

I was really excited to try out the Burt's Bee's lipsticks because I'm a huge fan of their products, particularly their lip balms. I bought these about two months ago around the time that I decided to switch to less-toxic makeup. I wanted to make the switch as quickly and conveniently as possible. At $8…

Switching to Less-Toxic Makeup!
