You need the protection only a lip balm can provide. But you want the full color coverage of a lipstick. Why compromise? Our lipstick combines lip-quenching botanicals with natural mineral pigments to give you all the benefits of both! Not sure which shade is YOU? Try before you buy! Visit our samples page for sample sizes of this product.
KEY: M = matte F = slight frost S = slight shimmer
Please keep in mind that 5 people can be asked to describe one shade, and each will come up with a different verbal description. We did our best to describe these colors. When in doubt, try a sample size before buying the full sized product.

I was on the hunt for a natural lipstick, when I heard about the brand Honeybee Gardens. I ordered the shade called South Beach, and I was honestly a bit nervous since South Beach is a kind of a coral color and I have medium tan skin. There are several things I love about this lipstick. First, it has a lovely honey-vanilla scent. Second, it goes on creamy and smooth with wonderful staying power. Third, the color I ordered goes so well with my skin tone. It's such a classy-gorgeous pop of color, and my husband loves it! Last, I can't say how important it is for me to use natural makeup which isn't full of chemicals (not to mention it's wonderfully affordable). I cannot wait to order my next color!

This lipstick has a very nice feel and applies very smoothly. The color is subtle and is very moisturizing!

I ordered samples before ordering a full-size tube. I love everything about it except the color - I ordered the wrong color. The color I ordered is a great color (Thoroughbred) but is a little too orange-y for me. I should've gone more mauve/rose. I'll try again. The odor was a little thing but not too bothersome.

Romance is my favorite "red" from this collection. I have fair skin/cool undertones and dark hair. Romance is not too bold but a deep enough color to really dress up my evening. I love that it's matte and doesn't have that orange or blue tinge that looks harsh on fair skin. Instead it has a mauve base with a punch of red like a raspberry. The pictures don't really capture the color. Seduction is another darker shade I like that I could wear day or night with more neutral tones. Queenbee and Risque were just too loud of a red for me. My day time favorites are Thoroughbred and San Francisco

Gives a gentle "umph" of color, and goes on smoothly. (I've had lipsticks that were ... sticky: stiff to apply, and others that were smudgy from the instant they touched your mouth. This formula is like the little bear's porridge: Just right.)
It is also nice to find lipstick colors that are matte finish rather than glittery or glossy.

The color description was spot on, mauve with a hint of red. I consider this a neutral shade that makes my lips look healthy and I love that it is non toxic.

I love this lipstick! It is moisturizing, doesn't feather or bleed, and lasts a long time. Being able to purchase samples is extremely helpful, and I discovered the Romance shade is my favorite as a result of purchasing multiple samples. The Heirloom shade is also very pretty. My lips are very sensitive and it is fantastic to be able to use an all natural lipstick that feels good on my lips. I couldn't be happier with this lipstick!

This long-lasting lipstick is excellent-- its coverage is smooth, and it can be applied lightly for a hint of color, or built up for a darker shade. It doesn't feather or bleed, which is another huge advantage. So far, Vintage Merlot is the only Honeybee Gardens lipstick I have, but I plan to buy more colors soon!

Wow! This was a wonderful treat among many in May's Buzz Box! This looks really really pretty on and lasts like the rest of them do! A great neutral shade for any skin tone! Sincerely, Gina Bird

The Cherokee color is perfect for my skin tone, and very natural looking. It has a great matte finish and is not at all sticky. I feel like I'm not wearing lipstick, but it looks awesome. HBG needs to continue this one forever!
