Love the size of the tubes, but hate how you can't retract them.
For anyone who likes these shades.. RAISIN, MERLOT and COFFEE are being "phased out" and will soon no longer be available. I work in a store that carries this product and we've flat out been told to not bother ordering these shades. Guess they did that bad, huh?
The other shades are awesome on my fair skin, I love the minty balm.. I just find there is too much shimmer. I might wear these more often in the winter.
I have these in Raisin, Merlot, and Watermelon, and all of them are great. Sort of like... lipstick light. There's enough color to show up, but it's just sheer enough where you don't need to use a mirror. I love the tingly feel, too. Great product, good price.
I really wanted to like these lip shimmers but the colors prevented me from doing so.I purchased coffee and merlot which i assumed will go well with my medium dark complexion . When i tryied them on they were nice , moisterizing,refreshing and minty. My lips fely great ........but the colors for my complexion were horrible. The coffee looked like a medium burnt orange and the merlot was a reddish pink stain on my lips.
Other than that , the shimmers were good. It s good product and i like how they feel. Burt Bees need some better colors for ppl of darker skin tones.
BTW think they are highly pigmented to be considered as sheer.
I have Watermelon and I love it. It's a funny color, really - it's both warm and cool at the same time (cool lilac pink with warm gold shimmer) and looks great on mostly everyone. I like the minty sensation and moisturization and it lasts for awhile on me. Unfortunately, these little tinted lip balms are used up VERY quickly. I only bought this two weeks ago, and half the tube is gone. Maybe this is just because I keep on reaching for this, I love it so much.
Funny, but my daughter has the Champagne and even though it is pale and frosty, it suits her. She is a pale strawberry blonde. Thankfully, God made us all different so, to each her own. I know I couldn't pull it off. It's nice they have a good variety to chose from, I think there is probably a shade there for everyone. Just be sure to test before you buy as the colour in the tube is not always true when you apply it. She happens to like the peppermint tingle these offer. I think the slim tube is a cute gimmick but you probably don't get as much product that way.
I bought this in Champagne and Coffee. I hate both of them. HATE. The Champagne is too frosty on me, and I like frosty! The coffee shade comes out orangey and I can usually get away with coffee-colored lip anything.
I have this in the nutmeg shade and its pretty good. It is highly pigmented for a lipbalm, so a little can go a long way. Leaves a nice minty taste and tingle on my lips and doesn't feel all that tacky. I will try out other colors like the watermelon shade. Overall, these are not bad.
I just got lip shimmer in rhubarb and I am impressed! It glides smoothly over my lips and rhubarb is a deep and warm pink that is flattering. I like the slight minty feeling and it moisturises my lips just fine. It works as if you put a slight gloss over lipstick, just that it isn't sticky and soooooo moisturising. Now tempted to try watermelon and champagne!
EDIT: I change my mind, this is most fabulous thing I've ever put on my lips! It plumps them up and gives them the ooomp factor! Not even my lip gloss can achieve this look, without pilling up all the goop on my lips and them feeling sticky. Don't think I will ever purchase anything other lip gloss or colour after this, nothing comes close... Burt's a genius for creating this product!!!
I own this in Coffee and Nutmeg and I have to say that I really like these shades. I love the slight minty tingle when you apply them and their sheer coverage. My only gripe is the packaging. The product won't go back down into the tube so I have to put the cap half-on. This isn't a big deal, though. Overall, a thumbs up from me.
I own this product in Rhubarb, which is a red stain. I have full, reddish-pink lips, and this makes them look perfectly flushed and moist. My HG tinted balm for that naturally sexy look.
