Review: Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer

I’ve started using these as a go-to product for when I don’t want a “made-up” look on my lips.   Decide for yourself if they’re right for you…

Pros:  100% natural. Cruelty-free. (Leaping Bunny approved, although the parent company isn’t.)  Made in USA.   Comes in a great selection of colors.

Cons:  A little expensive for what they are.  Not very good at moisturizing. (I usually put lip balm on before using these.) Can have a “heavy” look if you don’t apply the least amount possible. Not long-lasting color.

In Summary:  I like these as long as I can get them on sale.   (I got a bunch of different colors for under $2 each a while back at a discount store.)  They’re a happy medium between lipstick and lip gloss, which makes them good for everyday use.

Shopping Tip: If you love these, the best deal is to try to get the “kits” or “sets” that are often available at stores that carry full lines of Burt’s Bees products.  Of course, if you’re a discount store shopper, you may be able to find them at stores like TJ Maxx, Marshall’s, Ross, and Big Lots, too.

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars  3-stars

Price: approx. $5 each (have seen them priced up to $7)

Available at:  Target, Ulta, sometimes at discount stores
