Most Helpful Positive Review Lipstick vs. Shimmer
Today I discovered Burts Bees sells actual lipstick and decided to buy some lipstick and some shimmer to compare. I bought Blush Basin for lipstick and Peony for shimmer (basically the same shade!) They both go on very smooth and cover well and leave your lips soft just like their chapstick, but the shimmer seemed to be a little more thick and therefore more moisturizing. The shimmer has that burning/tingling minty taste/feel whereas I didn't get that with the lipstick. The lipstick gives a satin, more professional look whereas the shimmer is, well, shimmery and reflects light more, making it more of a for-fun lip color. The lipstick seemed to stay on a little better - the shimmer is very smuge-able whereas the lipstick stays put better. Both are great!
Most Helpful Critical Review Okay
i got a pack of 4 and the only color i liked was nutmeg. it looks suttle, but very pretty for casual wear. i also got champagne, raisin, and merlot, but i gave those away to my little cousins because it seemed like they'd enjoy them more. raisin and merlot were too bright reddish pink and they looked too childish on me. champagne on the other hand, turned my lips ashy and i looked like a zombie.

This is my absolutely favorite lip balm. I use the watermelon color and it's a great light mauve shade. There's a slight mint flavor, and it's not sticky at all. I've replaced all my lip glosses with this. It's great!

Gives nice color, glitter and hydration. I have 3 colors and love all

Love this stuff! Use as a moisturizer and for some natural looking color. Has a little bit of shimmer but VERY subtle.

Made cheaply so it sells cheaply. I bought if for being Burts Bees but he is gone so is the quality.
SML from NY
I had bought this about two years ago at a airport and when I saw it here I had to get it. It's amazing, it acts like a chapstick while making ur lips colored. It made my lips feel hydrated and cooled. (I got the color Rhubarb) I would totally recommend!!
Cadence from Tx
I like this because my lips are always dry and when I put this on and it peels my lips 2 hours after applying it and it leaves then smooth the color is okay I would like more pigment and it's not that shiny
i WOULD BUY THIS AGAIN

I've used this product for years in several colors, but Watermelon is my favorite. It's small and fits into my jeans pocket at work, it has a great selection of colors, has a little bit of a tingle after applying (which I like), and the price is right.
Maddie from North Carolina
Love the color and it has just the right amount of shimmer. However, be warned: it has a VERY strong peppermint taste and if you put on a lot, the taste will be too much to bear. Still, an overall good product!
Very harsh and drying
A from CA
Leaves my lips extremely dry leaving a patch on them. It doesn't work for people with sensitive skin and people who are sensitive to strong smells like mint.
Minty and hydrating color
Sonali from San Diego
I had to go over my lips a few times to get them covered but I really liked this shade. It hydrated my lips for the day and the color lasted a few hours even though it faded.
It does transfer and does fade but I'm excited to have a nourishing lip shade for once so I can wear it the days after I wear the drying liquid lipsticks!
I got rhubarb and it's so pretty. Excited to try the other colors.
Good product for an excellent price

I have three colors; rhubarb, peony, and fig. Peony is extremely shimmery with little color, rhubarb is shimmery, but not as much as peony, with quite a bit of pigment, and fig is a nice median, with good shimmer and a slight tint. All of them are pleasant colors, especially for the price. Thy are also very moisturizing, and the shimmer lasts a few hours.

I bought this to try it because I heard about it. I'm not a lipstick person but I wanted something with color on my lip balms. I tried this and I love it. Some of the reviews said they didnt like this shimmer but I can't even see it. I maybe didnt put as much as they did but I love it and will buy more different colors.

One swipe and instantly was turned off. It looks like I put shimmery eyeshadow on my lips.
This is the only lipstick I use
Gina from SC
Great product. It moisterizes and has a good color.
I love this
Mey from Indiana
It omhad the most natural color and shimmer. I love the minty tingle on your lips. It's not a burning like a lip plumper more like a refreshing peppermint.
Light shimmer. Nice feel.
Tara from Ohio
This color is pretty on my fair skinned 10 year old daughter. My favorite color for myself is Peony. I like the slim case.
This is one of my favorites to have on hand!
Tracylyn from Arkansas
I've used this product for years and it is my go to when I need moisturizer w a touch of color.
Pretty color and nice peppermint affect to it!

I like the peppermint in it gives you a nice, fresh breath! I wish the tint/color was a bit darker though!
Always a must!
Cheesy from Lockeford, Ca
I have used Bert's bees for years and will continue to use. It is just a great go to product.
That peppermint sure gives you a good feel!
Purple48 from Sioux Falls, SD
Needs a bit more color to it and it would be perfect!
This is a favorite
Sam from Las Vegas
My lips dry out quite a bit at work & wearing lipstick never really works for me. I've used this brand for several years and always go back if I try something different. Fig is the best color, but Watermelon is great as well.
I like the light feel of this product.
