Most Helpful Positive Review Matte, Buildable Coverage
I love matte, long lasting coverage, but I also don't like feeling like I have a concrete mask on my lips. I also really like being able to use my lip products to build my desired level of coverage depending on my daily tasks. Burt's Bees Matte Stick in 475 Liquid Honey has a perfect blend of lightweight, blendable coverage, with a high level of pigmentation and not much transferability. I love that the ingredients are of 100% natural origin with mineral rich color. Not everyday I need a bold lip color, but I do like a product that I know takes care of my lips as well as the environment. This product does it all from the office to date night, just add another layer or 2 depending on what you're doing that day and it has you covered. I absolutely recommend this unique lip color to anyone who likes a flexible lip color that you can keep in your purse for every and any occasion.
Most Helpful Critical Review "Dry" coverage
I was more worried that the color, "Rhubarb Rapids" would be too "pink" for my age and skin type. The color is a pretty mauve-ish matte, perfect for summer, perfect for my skin tone (Light), and perfect for 50 something. I disliked the dry coverage, however. I almost had to scrub my lips to get full coverage. I wish there had been more moisture in the product to go on more smoothly.

Mara from Portland, Oregon
This product smells and tastes awful, and is so rough on my lips. Super drying. Overall not good.
My favorite lipstick of all time
Danda from Chicago
I love how matte it is. It is not greasy. It lasts a long time.
Won't Purchase Again
BAS29 from West Virginia
I've been a faithful BB user for years and thought I would try this new to me product. Very disappointed. INThe formula is so drying my lips hurt and it flakes off. Not sure what happened with this product, but it's a flop in my opinion.

It was okay, Just okay, It was not bad or amazing.
So far so good

Izz from Glendale ca
It's extremely dry had to add gloss 😔defended the purpose have being matte but overall I love love the lip color
Stays all day/night
Impossible to Apply
Nancy16 from West Haven CT
I purchased this product because I love all the BB's products & was looking for a matte lipstick. At my age I didn't want anything shiny. I love the color (Canyon Creek),but it was like trying to apply colored chalk. The only way that I could use it was to apply lip balm first. Disappointed.
Rosie from Idaho
The color swatched nicely on my hand. I went to apply on my lips and it tugged so much on my lips. Very dry I had to put a lot of pressure to get color on. Also smelled like expired play-doh.
Feels More Like a Tinted Chapstick
Bella from New York
I like that this "matte lipstick" isn't drying and keeps my lips hydrated but it is not highly pigmented or long-lasting like a lipstick should be. For that reason, I feel like it should be listed more as a tinted chapstick than a lipstick.
Not all products are good
rab77cab from FORT WAYNE IN
Today I bought your matte stick in Ruby (455) Its dry, crumbly & goes on like it was a crayon?? I have been using your Tinted Lip balm in Red Dahlia. & loved it & almost out. SO I have been watching my local stores waiting for them to get more in with no luck. I hate it. Did you quit making the tinted balm? If not I would love to get more. I will not use this matte stick at all it does nothing as a moisture, it dries out my lips. So a big waste of $$
Layla from LV
Yes the smell is BAD BAD BAD but it's my favorite lipstick for a natural look. Love how it looks on me. I have fair skin with yellow undertones and it's perfect (the liquid honey shade) personally. I have the red shade and it's good too, prefer the liquid honey one more, though.
Vette005 from Austin, Tx
It smells horrible! I didn't know if it had already expired or if that was just it's original scent but I used it twice and threw it away! Should have waited for store to re-open and returned!
Great look, bad smell
Samieyj from California
Bought two of these in liquid honey and rush of raspberry, really love the colors and feel but the smell is awful. Not sure what they are supposed to smell like but mine are like dirty crayons. I would 100% recommend these if they didnt smell. Perhaps I got a bad batch.
don't like the smell
NB from Merced CA
Smells like it's already expired, not my favorite.
I got an old matte stick - I hope
girl in colorado from colorado springs
I got the color Mulberry Mist. I prefer a slightly darker color, and this gave nice coverage and the color is beautiful. Unfortunately, it smells like it's an old stick or has gone rancid. I tried it anyway, and now the taste is stuck on my lips. I am bummed as I usually Burt's Bees products to be fresh, clean, and to smell nice. Has anyone else had this issue? Is it just me? Did I get ahold of an old matte stick?
Chalky and chunky
Ambam032 from MN
Ugh. It felt chalky and looked patchy when I applied it.
Really like liquid honey
Sobasically from San Diego, CA
Got liquid honey, looking for a sheer nude matte that wasn't too pink. This fits the bill. I heard people say these matte sticks are good dupes for glossier gen g lipsticks. Haven't tried glossier's so I can't speak to that, but I imagine they are similar in concept based on how glossier describes their product's application and finish. I really like the formula and color of liquid honey. Sheer reddish brown color, applies more opaque with multiple swipes. Blotted look. I wasn't sure it would look right with my coloring (dark golden blond hair, light-medium skin with pink and yellow undertones). Turns out it looks great! Matches a blush I have which is reddish-bronzy, like when you have a rosy tan after being in the sun awhile. Gave it 4 stars bc while I love the look & color, but it is not very long-lasting. Needs to be reapplied after an hour or so, which is a bummer given that there's not a ton of product to begin with. The taste is like clay/play dough, which isn't my favorite, but par-for-the-course for this type of formula. Wish they had added some peppermint oil to make it more distinctively Burts Bees. Wonder if that would change the blotted-matte finish.
Jasmine L from Texas
What even is this? I would assume this was some children's variety tinted chapstick and not a product marketed to adults. I am so annoyed that I wasted money on these products, even if it was an insignificant amount of money. First off, these sticks lack PIGMENT, even with layering it does not achieve a richer color or an opaque finish. ME: AA (Yella' skin tone), lips a soft pink.
Honey: Smells like a crayon, expected a rich brown color, got a dirty smudge instead
Ruby: Smells nice, color appeared as if I had consumed a red Popsicle at some point in the past hour and hadn't wiped my mouth thoroughly. Embarrassing really, it was like I needed to refresh my lipstick after having a meal, but I had just put the stuff on!!
Rhubarb: Bubble gum/Barbie pink. Le sigh.
Raspberry: Color is nice, but so subtle. Meh.
I thought to repurpose as a blush, but the color doesn't last for long on my cheekbones. Just boo all-around.
liquid honey is prefect
m from Portland OR
this is the best bang for your buck in terms of matte lipstick. doesn't dry out or get cakey, doesn't get on your wine glass, and looks so natural. really easy to build up from a blotted look to a full lip. I'm going to buy it in every color
Great all natural lipstick!
Lauren from San diego,California
Love this line of lipsticks. Cant beat it for the price
Blotted lip look
Sosie from Michigan
I love these! I have three already. This is not a heavy matte lipstick, or a drying liquid lip. It will give you a blotted lip look and keep your natural lip line, which I love. I'm late 30s and it does not sink into any creases. Yes, the formula is firm and you need to apply with short strokes to build color. But the finish is so lovely.
Leslie from IL
Color pay off is not there. Product is too dry, making it hard to apply without the tug. Only positive is that it's a clean brand.
Love the color
Aogle1 from Maryland
This bert's bees Matte stick lipstick is heaven in a tube. The color is long lasting and leaves your lips feeling hydrated and fresh. The color was beautiful and lasted throughout the day. I would highly recommend this matte lipstick
Nice Color but too Dry
elialexander115 from Teaneck, NJ
I really loved the color on this, I have Rhubarb Rapids, which is a beautiful deep mauve/pink color. I prefer a matte look so I was excited to try this but it doesn't go on as smoothly as I would have liked. It does stay on nicely once applied but it could be a bit creamier so it could glide on easier.

The Burts Bee Matte Stick that I received as a sample was very convenient to use. The Burts Bee Matte Stick fits nicely in my purse or back pocket. The Burts Bee Matte Stick is truly a Matte and I like wearing it for work.
