Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer creates a luminous finish with slightly more than a hint of color.
How to Use
Rated 4.44 out of 5 stars
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!
How on earth can Burts Bees justify discontinuing this shade? This was the only neutral shade of lip shimmer you sell. The other shades have waaayyy too much pink and orange and look terrible with my complexion! And I've tried them all only to throw them in the trash! Apparently I'm not the only customer who feels that way looking at all the reviews asking for Cocoa's return. Why don't you read all the reviews!! Maybe a company who sells mostly cleaning products doesn't understand the make-up industry and brand loyalty?!?

I used everyday for moisture & a little shimmer. Now there's no shimmer so probably won't buy again. Can get moisture from Toms of other products, cheaper.

No longer wear lipstick. Only wear this!

I love the lip shimmer! It doesn't stay on as long as a regular lipstick but it feels so good going on and looks pretty. Easy to reapply.

Color was lighter than expected but might purchase another color in the future.
Jay from SLO
Shopped for weeks @ multiple stores to try to find individual shimmer. Won't buy again if it does not improve with supply in the future.

I use this everyday, darker red than expected but still gorg, it's better when you put lip gloss on then this

Love this lip gloss. Makes my lips soft and the color stays for as long as I leave it on.

The colors are great and very moisturizing but they are so tiny and noticed as I use them they get kind of mushy. Don't get me wrong I like them but as I'm using it I realize it's not going to last long and I don't like that. I wish they were a little bit fatter and longer and have some substance to them and then you would be getting more for your money instead of getting a little itty bitty sliver.
Daisy from UT
Pros: - very shimmery without glitter
- decent mint scent/taste
- stays on longer than the average tinted lip balm
- way more moisturizing than lipstick & more lightweight than lip gloss
Cons: - not much color payoff (sheer but buildable)
- definitely not transfer proof (will come off if you eat/drink/or kiss someone)
Verdict: It's a lovely lip product to use on "no makeup days" or on the go, but isn't reliable for date night.

A year ago I'd say five stars! I bought a bunch of these and absolutely loved all of them! A great variety of shades that can be worn sheer or built up, with the prettiest shimmer and just as great for your lips as any lip balm! However, at a year almost to the day, these turned mushy and messy to use. They also melt easily, so you can't really stick them in your pocket, at least in summer or if exercising. They're not that expensive, especially if bought in holiday sets or on sale, but that is something to keep in mind. I still might buy them again, especially my favorite color Peony (my perfect my lips but better nude!), but I'm probably not going to be recommending these to my friends without any warnings attached.
PS, these are amazing toppers over a lipstick shade you may not be entirely happy with! So easy to make your lip just a bit more pink, or orange, or nude, etc, without needing to put on a sticky gloss.

Just a touch of color along with lip moisturizer.

I bought a few of these because I wanted something like a tinted lip balm with some color but also moisturizing. This isn't exactly what I thought from reading the description. They are very pigmented. It's not a tint. It's definitely more of a lipstick. Not super pigmented but the color is definitely there. I got two red ones hoping I'd get a bit of red tint but they are very red.
They are definitely comfortable but not as moisturizing as a lip balm. It's more of a comfy lipstick. It's also a bit more metallic than I thought. I assumed it was more of a gloss look but it has a metallic glitter look.
Just a few pointers for people who wanted more of a lip balm like I did. Honestly they are very pretty and I actually really like them. I carry the lighter colors in my purse since it's easy to put on for some color but won't dry out your lips.

Have been using this product since high school, now out of college. It has never let me down. It's not going to fix chapped lips or anything like their other lip products, but it's moisturizing, tingling (makes the color rush to my lips), and SO colorful and shimmery! You only need a few dabs for it to do the work.

Daily use with all my outfits.

This stuff works FAST. When I first bought it I was skeptical, but the magic is in the ingredients. There isn't ONE BAD THING in the ingredient list. All of them are natural oils and some mica for pigment and shine. I had really chapped lips when I first starting using this brand and within less than a week, with application everyday, my chapped lips were gone! They'll come back if you stop using the chap stick for more than a week. Also it's perfect for the winter months as well and it lasts for about 2 months if you where it constantly. The color Champaign is perfect for those who just want a shine on their lips without any color.
The only bad thing about it is the fact that you can't roll it back down. I think it's because the tube is so thin that the chap stick suctions itself so the point where it can't be moved back down. So be careful when rolling it up and go a little bit at a time.

This is false advertising, I bought this thinking it was non-toxic and good ingredients, and then I looked it up and it actually does have a lot of toxic ingredients in it. I will never buy from this company ever again and I suggest everyone to do the exact same
annie from massachusetts
it's absolutely disgusting, doesn't taste like the flavor at all, it reminds of something from the 2000's

I really like BB's products & have used 2 of these colors. They are sheer, shimmery, & go well with any type of clothing. Also affordable, cruelty-free, & they smell great! Rated this one a 4 because of the light color on me. :)
Katrina from Rhode Island
I wanted something tinted and moisturizing for day to day wear and I thought this would be perfect but the minty smell is too overpowering for me. the color is nice but you have apply a lot to see it well and I dont think its very moisturizing, rather my lips felt more chapped after wearing it.
KT from NY
I just needed a hint of color and some moisturizing. It covers both needs perfectly!

Spreads nice and it's smooth but there are some glitter chunks and burns a bit
Stephy from Foley, AL
I have loved this during quarantine! I put it on when I take my mask off, and it helps my lips from chapping. I use a little concealer, mascara, blush, and this, and I feel pretty, even in my pajamas all day.
