Is it a lipstick? Lip gloss? Chapstick? Lip chap? Lip balm?
Who knows and who cares! Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm is $6.99 and a lovely little treat for your lips.
I must admit, the cute packaging of this product is what first caught my eye. I know I’m not supposed to be “judging a book by its cover” on most things in life but that rule never seems to apply to makeup! The prettier the packaging, the more likely I am to buy it. I just can’t help myself! Burt’s Tinted Lip Balm comes in a cardboard recyclable package and a chapstick tube is hidden inside. It’s cute, it’s eco-friendly, and it’s now in my shopping cart.
This lip balm comes in 6 different perfectly girly shades. I picked up the Hibiscus color because it seemed to be the most middle-of-the-road: not too red, not too pink. I’m pleased to report that the color displayed on the package is actually a pretty spot-on representation of the actual color once it’s on your lips (I feel like that rarely happens!) so that’s a nice little tidbit to keep in mind if you decide to try one.
Since this is a tinted lip balm — not say, a liptstick — the coverage is sheer. There is just enough color to enhance your features but in a very subtle, natural way (think of it like blush!). My lips were a little rosier and I can put this on without a mirror. This is a low maintenance lip product. Perfect for a thrifty girl on the go.
The feel is smooth, moisturizing, and light. If you are a daily chapstick wearer, then you’ll love this. Feels like any old chapstick, but the added color makes a whole different ballgame. Mmmm and the taste is nice, too. Slightly fruity but nothing near the overpowering taste of say, Lip Smackers.
Believe the buzz, this lip balm is worth trying!
