Happy Monday: Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm (review)

Hello everyone! I hope you had (or are still having) a wonderful holiday. I had a great Easter weekend, and today begins the second year of a very wonderful relationship. And since we’re closed for Passover at work, I’m still in weekend mode. But that doesn’t mean I can’t momentarily pull it together to talk about something pretty. Today it’s from Burt's Bees.

Tinted Lip Balm

Blurb: Care for your lips with beautiful, sheer color. Our new tinted balms give you a hint of color with a soft, sweet flavor and natural ingredients that moisturize and condition your lips. Available in six flirty shades – Hibiscus, Honeysuckle, Tiger Lily, Pink Blossom, Red Dahlia and Rose.

It takes a lot to get me excited about lip balm, but these are fabulous. They’re all natural, and they feel wonderful. They’re smooth, very soothing, and stay on for a long time without feeling waxy or sticky. And when they do wear off, my lips are definitely softer.

I tried “Rose” and “Hibiscus.” Each had a light (yummy) fruity scent, and a tiny bit of sweet flavor. Nothing overpowering – it was very nice. Of course the best thing about these balms is the lovely pigment. Each has a sheer, shiny wash of color that gives my lips a pretty tint while keeping them soft. I also tried layering one of the shades (“Hibiscus”) over a lip stain I have, and got a really nice effect. These are perfect to keep in your desk or purse.

Check out all the shades (6) on the website. There’s even a Tinted Lip Balm video. And if you’re in the mood, you can learn about actual bees by visiting the be good to bees page. Burt’s Bees products are also available in grocery stores, drug stores, natural food stores, ULTA, and drugstore.com.
