Good music x good lip balm!
Husband and wife folk-pop group, Us the Duo, also known as Michael and Carissa Rae Alvarado, shot to stardom with their viral, six-second Vine covers of beloved songs. The online musical sensation lent their talent to Burt's Bees to create lip balm flavor-inspired songs. Dreamy!
Through the end of January, Us the Duo will have recorded and released Vines all about their lip-loving favorite flavors. And Burt's Bees wants fans to do the same.
First, let's check out some of the Us the Duo Vines below. Microsongs! Compact! Cute! Balmy!
And here is Wild Cherry!
And this is Coconut and Pear!
OMG, are you like fawning yet? These are so, so awesome.
Like Us the Duo's wildly popular six-second covers, which feature the couple's faces from the lips down, the new Burt's Bees-inspired Vines have been made in their signature lip-centric style. Tad Kittredge, Associate Director of Marketing at Burt's Bees, explained, "Us the Duo's lip-centric Vines and their compelling love story caught our attention. We're thrilled to see how they musically interpret the flavors of our natural lip balms with their flare for delightful six-second riffs."
Did you check out the Coconut and Pear Vine, with the lyrics, "Coconut & Pear, you've got the flowers in your hair. And we're in love." And did you enjoy the all new Wild Cherry ode: "Wild Cherry I like to savor. Pull it out ya pocket and uncap the flavor?"
The Pomegranate is pretty cute, too.
Also, Us the Duo and Burt's Bee's hope you have been inspired to create and submit your own Burt's Bees lip balm flavor Vine. Share your original song on social media by tagging @BurtsBees and using the hashtag #UnCapFlavor, for the chance to be re-Tweeted and re-Vined by Us the Duo and Burt's Bees.
Did you uncap the flavor and make your own lip-leaning Vine, like Us the Duo?
