Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer 🐝 Product Review

Written by Tia

When I first started raving about Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer to my many friends—AKA my roommate, my only friend—she told me she used it in middle school and then stopped. I think that was a mistake.

Burt's Bees has always been a go-to for me in the world of chapstick. I've tried everything from Eos, to Lip Smacker, to the free lip balm you sometimes get on airplanes. Burt's Bees does the job like no one else.


But I'd never considered their other products, because it isn't really considered a makeup brand, and I go for those when shopping for lip stains, lip crayons, and lipsticks. My mistake! I should've bowed down to Burt's Bees. Their lip shimmers are fantastic. Strong color, feels great on your lips—the only bad thing is that it gets on cups and forks and the most kissable of puppies. But, to be honest, I am pretty careless with application and all of my lipsticks tend to find themselves printed all over my favorite mugs. So maybe it's just me.

Anyway—I think what's really great about the Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers is their moisturizing feel. They feel just like a Burt's Bees balm, but paired with a strong pop of color and a barely noticeable glittery sheen. It's subtle and lovely. Perfect for an easy day-to-day look.

peony, rhubarb, and fig

I got the Burt's Bees Kissable Color Warm Collection 3-Piece Set, and found that the middle, pinky-red Rhubarb color was the best on my lips. The Fig and Peony colors have less pop on me, but still add some shimmer—I think it might have to do with my own natural lip color, which is pretty saturated already.

If you're looking for a casual, moisturizing, bright lip stick/lip balm combo, I definitely recommend at least the Rhubarb color. While it's not the best lip makeup out there by far, I think it serves me perfectly as a casual makeup user, who often forgets to apply lip balm until it's too late.

I got the three-color pack at Target for $9.99, but you can also buy individual lip shimmers on Burt's Bee's website.
