I had a random urge one day to try these out. It was probably during my Burt's Bees infatuation phase. I don't even like shimmer on my lips. At around $5 per Lip Shimmer, I thought, "Why not?" I purchased 3 colors: Rhubarb, Champagne, and Guava. Rhubarb was the only one I really liked out of the three.
Description from site: A kiss of color and pearlized shine perk up our world famous 100% natural lip balm, while natural ingredients like vitamin E and coconut and sunflower oils moisturize and soothe your lips. Choose from 11 yummy, all natural shades: Champagne, Raisin, Merlot, Rhubarb, Watermelon, Nutmeg, Fig, Cocoa, Toffee, Guava and Papaya.
Bare lips, without anything on.
Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb applied. What a sweet color! The more you layer it, the darker it gets.
I didn't really like how the Guava shade looked on my lips. It's a pale purple with lots of shimmer and when applied, made me look like my lips had lost circulation. Definitely not my color.
Way to shimmery for me. But I'm sure there are some out there who just love their shimmer. I remember that in either Guava or Champagne, the glitter was kind of chunky actually.
Pros of Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers
+ Minty, tingy feeling
+ Very pigmented
- Too shimmery/glittery sometimes (not a fan of frost)
Would I repurchase. Sure, but probably in a new color since they have such a nice little range. I'd like to try the Watermelon color if I could find it.
