Honeybee Gardens Truly Natural Lipstick Vintage Merlot -- 0.13 oz
I've tried nearly all of the Honeybee line lipsticks and this is by far my favorite color. It's like a brick-red color, vintage ambience on a fair skin person. In comparison to the other colors, this one actually goes on very smooth and comes off clean, whereas, some of the more red colors stay on like a lip stain. Also, this is the only color that seems strong - in that the others seems to break very easy. Of course, don't twirl the stick all the way up, that helps. But ya, this is the one color I can rely on.

This color is amazing! I always get compliments when I wear this! And it is fragrance free and nondrying unlike soo many other lipsticks I have tried.

breaks easily, dry
I ordered 2 tubes, the merlot and another. One arrived broken and Vitacost replaced it. Both broke within the first 2 times I used it. I wrote Honeybee Gardens and they were very untouched, to say the least. This lipstick is just too hard to use--you can only roll out about 1/4 inch or you're in danger of breaking it. The color looks good and is true, and if you can only use it a couple of times before throwing it away, it's a waste of money. Also, it's very dry. Nothing creamy about it. I've moved on from this lipstick. Have to find a new one that's healthy, but also a good product. Any suggestions?

The Vintage Merlot turns out orangeish. Not merlot at all. Disappointed.

I like the smooth feel of this lipstick with the natural ingredients. It is best not to let the lipstick come up too high when opening it or it could break off because it is soft. The color is good; nuetral for me because I wear a lot of purple & burgandy. The price is also very reasonable with vitacost.
