Beauty Buy – Bellavance For Burt’s Bees
There are few things that get me as excited as a perfectly brought together collaboration, and this one’s no exception. Burt’s Bees has teamed up with Canadian design duo Bellavance to create a gorgeous limited edition lip collection and holster in support of the Wild For Bees initiative.
Before I dip any further, you must know that the first time I heard my son’s name, was upon discovery of designer Nolan Bellavance nearly two years ago. I literally couldn’t stop saying the name I thought it was so beautiful. The man agreed, and here we now are, with a Nolan of our own!
If you weren’t already in the loop, bee health is on a serious decline. What most don’t know, is that bees are responsible for nearly one third of our entire food supply (think about all the plants they pollinate, let alone delicious honey). That’s not even including all the fibres, spices, and medicinal plants they additionally pollinate. Ninety percent of these bees are called solitary bees (independent workers if you will), who sadly have fewer and fewer places to rest their wings and regenerate in healthy environments. With increasing habitat loss, pollutants, pest predators, and exposure to disease, bee extinction is heading towards reality.
Enter the bee hotel! Safe houses for our furry little friends to visit along their journeys. I love that the organization has created downloadable instructions for those with outdoor space of their own (make your own bee hotel y’all!). To support this mission, Burt’s Bees has joined forces to raise awareness with thought-provoking videos, and this delicious new Bellavance ensemble - complete with two new stunning lip shimmer shades. Those who are already fans of the brand can rejoice with the inclusion of their best-selling lip tints Blush Orchid and Hibiscus, while welcoming similar sparkly hues Grapefruit and Apricot to their repertoires. Wrapped in the most divine little organic cotton holster (with the bee rendition of Bellavance’s signature spring/summer 2014 stripe motif), this set is the ultimate beauty “must” for the connoisseur/lover of fine neutral makeup tones. Worth every bit it’s affordable $19.99 price tag, you’ll willingly/soundly cash out knowing 100% of your sale goes directly to Pollinator Partnership Canada (yes!).
P.S. Pssssst! The cherry on top? The holster fits all standard lipsticks, and the Burt’s Bees blends (shea, beeswax, and botanical) are 100% natural (woohoo!)Posted under all natural beauty, Beauty, cosmetics, designer, Gift Suggestions, Gotta Love It, Lifestyle, My Makeup, organic, skincare, Uncategorized by Robyn
