Shades, by Burt's Bees and a sneak peek of Burt's Bees Lipstick with swatches!

What happens when you give 10 amazing Canadian artists a palette of lipsticks and tell them to go crazy? You get Shades presented by Burt's Bees - an exhibition of lipstick artwork  - and I don't mean pictures of  lipstick - this art has actually been painted with lipstick! I must admit when I heard the concept I was expecting a room full of pictures of the 4 year old finger-painting variety but it's amazing stuff! I'm especially fond of this pop art inspired pin-up bee by TAVA.

If you're in Toronto you can see the exhibit in person at Arta Gallery at 14 Distillery Lane in Toronto until March 11th - otherwise, you can check out them out in the Shades gallery on the Burt's Bees Facebook page at -  Find a picture you can't live without? You're in luck, the artwork is all being auctioned off with proceeds going to support Wildlife Preservation Canada.
Shades is also celebrating the new Burt's Bees Lipstick - $9.99 - in 14 satin-finish, full-coverage, vibrant shades: Iced Iris, Fuchsia Flood, magenta Rush, Sunset Cruise, Nile Nude, Blush Basin, Suede Splash, Scarlet Soaked, Ruby Ripple, Russet River, Tulip Tide, Lily Lake, Brimming Berry, Juniper Water - that are 100% natural with red raspberry seed and moringa oils as well as beeswax and vitamin E for 8 hours of moisture - for a lipstick that loves you back.

The lipsticks look and smell great and I especially like the slim bullet which makes it much easier to apply evenly to all the edges without having to use a liner! Available in April at drug, grocery and natural stores across Canada.
