Lip Swatches - Urban Decay, Burts Bees and Boots 17

I had a second day of shopping on Sunday and just as I was about to go home I thought I'd pop in Debenhams. I ended up treating myself to a few lip products that I've been wanting to try for a while.

I've included some lip swatches in this post so here are my lips without any product on so you can see the difference:

First up we have the Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom. This was £5.99 so a few pounds more expensive than their regular lip balms but it's definately worth it. It glides on nice and smoothly and deposits a lovely wash of colour on the lips. It's not very pigmented but that's fine because I wasn't expecting that. I'm very happy with this purchase.

Secondly I bought the Urban Decay Stardust Sparkling Lip Gloss in Glitter Rock for £14.00. I couldn't believe my eyes when I finally saw this lip gloss as I saw it on some blogs ages ago. There were a few shades I liked but I decided to go for pink since it's what I'm most likely to wear on a night out. This lip gloss is very glittery/shimmery but you can't feel any glitter on your lips, it's a very fine shimmer. I don't even think my lip swatch does the product justice as there is so much more shimmer and it's more pink. I love this lip gloss, it's not sticky on the lips either. An extra thing to note about this product is that it has a minty scent which I quite like as it's different to anything else I have.

Here are some hand swatches. Stardust on top and Burt's Bees below:

Whilst I was trying these products I thought I'd try on the lipgloss I got in the 17 Femme Noir set I got free on Saturday with my two 17 purchases. Here is the full post in case you want to see what else I got.

This lipgloss is quite nice. It's not sticky and it feels nice on the lips but I don't think I'd be brave enough to wear this colour outside! It's a good freebie though.

Has anyone tried any of the other shades of the Burt's Bees lip balm or the Urban Decay Stardust? Send links of any swatches you have as I'd love to purchase some more :)
