Thanks to HBG's yearly flash sale I felt justified ordering four lipsticks to my hearts content. I love all of them. They do tend to be a tad dry so I always add balm on top. Three of them I had already tried in samples and knew what I was getting, but the fourth I took a chance and ordered Queen Bee. Glad I did! For some reason this color lasts and lasts. It is a hot fushia pink on my lips. But it looks good! Great colors. Enjoy your lipstick journey :).

So glad to find a gluten free lipstick more reasonable than Ulta.

I ordered three of these lipsticks: Romance, Heirloom, and Bombshell. These shades all work well with fair skin. The pigment lasts a while (even though I tend to "eat" my lipstick off). The only thing I don't care for is the smell. Every lipstick I ordered smells like donuts.

I tried several samples, and didn't care for the shimmers. At least one of them seemed to contain little silver sparkles, and while I can't be sure, I think they actually migrated to other parts of my face during dinner.
I purchased two tubes of matte colors. Have not tried the Cherokee yet, but the Bombshell is the MLBB shade I'd been looking for. Only problem is that most or all of these accentuate the wrinkles in my lips. This is the first time I've worn traditional lipstick in over a decade, so I'm inclined to blame my age rather than the formula. Will try using lip balm underneath.
I recommend ordering samples. They are a bit awkward to apply, but reasonably priced and arrived quickly.
Thoroughbred and Cherokee
Posted by Amy Robinson on 9th Nov 2016
These two colors are great, everyday neutrals. Thoroughbred is a little more brown than Cherokee but not so much that it wouldn't be flattering on most skin tones. Cherokee has a little more berry in it and it rich without being too bright or loud.
Both lipsticks go on super smoothly and last forever! I am used to lipsticks fading or bleeding or flaking after an hour or so, but these are so moisturizing and smooth, you don't even need lip gloss!
If you can't decide between colors, get these two! Use Thoroughbred for a nice subtle color, then switch up to Cherokee for a more dramatic nighttime look!
Love this lipstick!!

I love this lipstick. I ordered a couple of samples and ended up purchasing 3 tubes so far. I've been looking for cruelty free lipsticks for a while now and I finally found these. Love the colors and they wear well.
Love the feel and the colors!

I've used Burt's Bees for years because it's natural. I love that this is more like lipstick, less like lip gloss. Stays on well, feels good, great colors.
Masquerade is beautiful!

I purchased this lipstick and wear it over lip balm. It is a lovely color! Honeybee Gardens was very gracious in sending me a replacement when my initial lipstick order broke. Great customer service!

I meant to order a sample of Thoroughbred but ended up with a full size lipstick. I do like the color- it's neutral and good for everyday. I haven't worn a matte lipstick in a long time; I think I'll order the clear lipgloss to go over it. It has good staying power and doesn't bleed or dry out my lips. It's not quite as moisturizing as I thought it would be but I will definitely buy more colors.
