Review: Burts Bees Lip Glosses, Shimmer + Shine

Wednesday, September 17, 2014
I wasn't going to publish this post today but it is Burt's Bees 30th Anniversary today!! I was very kindly sent a range of Burt's Bees lip shines, lip glosses, lip balms and lip shimmers! I have only tried the Burt's Bees beeswax lip balm  before and I LOVE it so I was very happy to try more products from Burt's Bees. Here are my thoughts!

*Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balms (£5.99): As I said, I have tried one Burt's Bees lip balm before but these are tinted! I do like tinted lip balms as they are hydrating but offer some colour. I have the shades 'Hibiscus' and 'Blush Orchid' both of which are gorgeous. 'Hibiscus' is a terracotta red shade which looks a tad more terracotta on my lips, it is a pretty natural autumnal shade. The 'Blush Orchid' shade is a milky pink shade which does tone down the natural shade of my lips slightly, great for an everyday look. They are both super hydrating and smoothing! Overall rating: ★, 5/5!

*Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer (£5.99): Sticking with the lip balm theme, I have a couple of the Lip Shimmers which are deeper, stronger versions of the tinted lip balms in my opinion; also they are quite matte but non drying and smoothing. I have the shade 'Rhubarb' which I adore and 'Apricot'. The 'Rhubarb' shade is perfect for autumn/winter and they do feel very smoothing and hydrating but they don't have a sheen/gloss, which I prefer. 'Rhubarb' is a divine berry shade and 'Apricot' is a peachy shade that looks quite similar to 'Hibiscus' on the skin. Overall rating: definitely ★, 5/5! I definitely want to get my hands on more shades.

*Burt's Bees Lip Gloss (£8.99): I saw these lip glosses in a American magazine last year some time and we didn't have them in the UK but since then I have been intrigued. I have the shades 'Ruby Moon' which is a deep burgundy colour and 'Autumn Haze' which is a golden beige. Both of the shades are gorgeous, the former would be perfect for autumn/winter! They are smooth and the 'Ruby Moon' shade is so pigmented, it is incredible. Overall rating: ★, 5/5.

*Burt's Bees Lip Shine (£6.99): Last but not least are the lip shines, they are tinted glosses which are super easy to apply and wear. The shades I have are: 'Whisper' and 'Flutter'. They have a fruity scent and are so comfortable to wear! 'Flutter' is a light berry shade and 'Whisper' is a pretty everyday shade. Overall rating: ★, 5/5.

Overall, I adore the packaging of these products (the honeycomb design is adorable) and the price is great too, in my opinion. I love the shades I received, four of which would make amazing autumn/winter shades. I love all of the products but the tinted lip balms and lip shimmers are my favourite out of the items I was kindly sent. 

Have you tried any of these products? If you have let my know what you thought of them in the comments below!

  5. I love the lip tints, they're so hydrating and offer the perfect amount of colour. I'm not keen on their lip shimmers though.
