I officially have a new favorite product!
Last month, my local Borders had all their Burt's Bees products 50% off (weird, I know. I don't know why they were in a bookstore in the first place), and all they had left was the lip shimmers. Since my lips are naturally very pigmented, getting a light color in lipsticks and lip balms is naturally pointless because it doesn't show up. So I chose the scary red color.
All other lip balms are ruined for me now! The red comes out as such a berry-red crimson which is just gorgeous on the lips. I was extremely surprised at the amount of pigmentation from just a lip balm. And my lips are very moisturized.
As for the application, my lips did feel a little tingly when I first put it on, but it went away within 10 seconds. The color lasted a very long time since the it's a deep shade that stains your lips, and I didn't notice any strange taste or smell.
It's so moisturizing! And the color payoff is simply, amazing.
The Bottom Line
While the color may not be for everyone, there's a large range of different shades to pick from.
You can buy them online here at Burt's Bees
