Anna Kendrick teams up with Burt’s Bees to promote their HIVE WITH HEART Campaign

Burt's Bees Launches Hive With Heart Campaign Benefiting Lipstick Angels

Hearts are abuzz at Burt’s Bees this spring! The new Burt’s Bees HIVE WITH HEART Campaign brings together non-profit Lipstick Angels and award-winning actress Anna Kendrick to support a “buy 2, give 2” program to enrich women’s lives through color and compassion.

To launch the campaign, Burt’s Bees and Anna Kendrick hosted a pink carpet Day of Natural Beauty at City of Hope, Los Angeles’ renowned cancer research and treatment center. City of Hope patients are paired with a Lipstick Angel for a one-on-one beauty makeover that features Burt’s Bees natural Lip Color products.

“The fight against cancer is extremely important to me,” says Kendrick. “I feel honored to have joined Burt’s Bees and Lipstick Angels for their Hive with Heart program, to help bring a little joy to these women’s lives through the power of beauty.”

From March 17th to June 30th, Burt’s Bees will donate two natural Lip Color products to Lipstick Angels each time a consumer purchases any two Burt’s Bees Lip Color products* on www.burtsbees.com/hivewithheart . Participants can also dedicate their donation to a special friend or family member and share this message via social media.

“When facing adversity, it’s important to remember how empowering feeling beautiful can be,” says Lipstick Angels founder and celebrity makeup artist Renata Helfman. “We’re incredibly grateful to Burt’s Bees for supporting the work of Lipstick Angels, helping us continue to lift the spirits of such deserving women.”

Burt’s Bees believes in the power of nature to transform and uplift—from a sunset’s breathtaking hues to nourishing natural ingredients—and is thrilled to find a partner that shares its values. “We are inspired by the beauty and generosity of Nature and share Lipstick Angels’ belief that a beautiful lip gloss can deliver big confidence, especially with the added benefits of nourishing natural ingredients.” says Burt’s Bees Global Marketing Manager, Tad Kittredge.

Additionally, visitors to www.burtsbees.com/hivewithheart will have the opportunity to enter the Sunshine and Smooches Sweepstakes**, where the entrant and a friend will experience the power of natural beauty first-hand. Winners will receive a 3-day trip to Los Angeles, a 2-hour make-up session with celebrity makeup artist Katey Denno, and a full line of Burt’s Bees lip color products.

Celebrity make-up artist Katey Denno believes Mother Nature gave us everything we need to feel beautiful. Watch as she shows one of our favorite beauty bloggers, Alexis Wolfer from The Beauty Bean, how to perfect her pucker with Burt’s Bees 100% natural lip color.

I have always been obsessed with Burt’s Bees. If you look back over the years, you’ll find dozens of product review’s we’ve done on the brand, and we can’t think of a single one we tried and didn’t fall in love with. The thing with brands like Burt’s Bees is you just TRUST them, don’t you? It’s rare to find a brand that you know will be good, no matter what.

When I heard about Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Color, I was immediately drawn to it first and foremost because I’m not a fan of lipstick. I guess I should be clear…. I’m not a fan of my lips. If I had bigger, fuller lips, I think I’d have no problem with lipstick at all. But my lips are on the smaller side, so I don’t waste my time (or money) on lipsticks that will just be lost on me.

I am drawn to these lip products because they are Burt’s Bees, and they’re not JUST a lipstick. They give your lips gorgeous natural color, while having healing properties as well! You get color + all those amazing Burt’s Bees benefits!

Are you unsure what color would be right for you? Use Burt’s Bees Lip Shade Finder – to help you decide what color will look best with your complexion! No one knows color better than nature, and nobody knows natural lip color better than Burt’s Bees! From sheer, natural shine to rich, vibrant hues, let nature kiss your lips in your choice of intensity! Just answer 4 quick questions!

Check out this beauty tip from celebrity makeup artist Katey Denno: For natural lip exfoliation, cut a grape in half and rub it on your lips. The fruit’s juicy goodness will help alleviate dryness, and prepare your lips for whatever color combination you choose. #natureknowscolor

This time of year my skin is achy and itchy and dry and all around grouchy. It was time to re-stock my Burt’s Bees pile, and I did just that! I have grown to really love Burt’s Bees products so much. They last an eternity (at least through the year) and they make my skin feel so happy. You know that feeling when your hands feel like they may actually tear open and rip, they’re so dry? These products make my skin rejoice.

Products that work – stick around for the long run and in many cases, become classics. Whether it be the ingredients or convenient packaging, we all have our favorite products that we can’t live without and our reasons why. The products in the Burt’s Bees Classics Collection were a hit from the moment they launched – and are still cult favorites today. These wonderful products came about more than 20 years ago, using what soon became Burt’s Bees most well-known ingredient, beeswax. Taken straight from the beehive, such a simple ingredient became everyone’s favorite. The classics collection includes:

Burt’s Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream moisturizes and shields the driest of hands with Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E. This glass container is pretty enough to leave out on your bathroom counter or on your desk at work – everyone will be dying to try it. ($9.00, burtsbees.com) –I have to say this hand cream is absolutely unbelievable. The smell of almond milk is so delicious, you might be tempted to eat it! MMM!!

Burt’s Bees Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream is the the ideal hand cream for on the go, enriched with Shea Butter and botanical oils and perfect for everyday use. ($13.00, burtsbees.com)

Burt’s Bees Res-q Ointment ($9.00, burtsbees.com) comforts any bumps and bruises with a blend of herbal ingredients. You’ll be thanking Burt, once that bruise disappears.
