Feels like a dream going on and the color is awesome. A smooth, sheer wash of a brownish red. Of course, it doesn't stay on long but no tinted lip balms do, do they?
The color of this lip balm-- Red Dahlia-- reminds me a lot of Clinique's Black Honey. So, even though it's more expensive than the regular Burt's Bees lip balms, it's half the price of the Clinique!
Overall, I'm very pleased. I usually layer it over a lip stain for a little more color. It's also nice on the weekends alone, when I don't want to wear much of anything but still need a little bit of color.
Finally a lip balm that isn't sticky or grainy. Red dahlia is the darkest colour from this collection but it looks fine on my nc25 skin. The lasting power is normal for a balm and it feels really nice on my lips. Nice scent too.
I initially thought the cardboard packaging it came in was the actual lip balm, but its not. Besides that, Im in looove with this lip balm. I wanted to carry around a lip balm w/ some color in it & figured why not try this one. It took me a while to purchase this cuz when I would go around to buy it, i back out. But im so glad I finally bought it! The texture on these are way different (IMO) than the other lip balms from burts bees. Its alot silkier and moisturizing, and just doesnt "sit" on your lips. The color isnt as vibrant as I would like, but its buildable and its enough for me with two swipes. I myself have discoloration on my top lip, so this helps fills them in (if you know what I mean). There is no tingly sensation you would get with the regular burts bees lipbalm. Overall, I really enjoy this lip balm & use it everyday, even when Im not going out. Really going to look into the other colors now :)) Oh and these are readily available at any drugstore, Target, Wal-mart, etc!
I absolutely love this product! There are many upsides to this product such as its color and texture! Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm has a silky, smooth texture and a vibrant, yet natural color. I prefer it in Rose, because it has a natural red glow, and can be used as a substitute for lipstick. The only downside to this product is that it stains. I left this in my pocket before washing my favorite white shorts...the result was not so great. Unfortunately, the stain doesn't come out, even after bleaching the shorts. But overall i love this brand and color. I often wear this to formal events, without having to pile on the matte red lipstick! Love this, and i recommend this to all, but be careful where you leave it ;) You dont want red splatter painted white shorts :)
I made my sister send them to me to India as I use only organic and naturals. The tint even shows on my slightly dark indian lips, though Im fairer as compared to normal Indian girls. its moisturisation stayes more than the tint which is mild, dewy and sheer .Great for everyday wear as u dont swallow chemicals. Would definately rebuy!
love the color and the feel, but i deducted one point for lack of sun protection. i feel like i should be layering it with an spf chapstick, especially in the summertime, which is more work than i should need to do.
I love the color of this, a sheer, muted berry-plum, and I love the light, moisturizing feel. It leaves my lips feeling comfortable even when it wears off, and I think the lasting time (about 2 hours) is pretty acceptable for a tinted balm. I like that it smells & tastes like 'Twizzlers', instead of peppermint like so many other Burt's Bees lip products. I do not, however, like the excessive, wasteful cardboard packaging, so disappointing from a usually environmentally conscious company. I also think the price is a 'bit' high for a drugstore product (though I've paid 3x as much for Fresh's tinted lip treatment). I would repurchase again if I ever have the need, but probably only on sale. If they'd lower the price by $2 or so, and get rid of the excess packaging, it'd be hard to find a flaw with this.
I've been reading about this everywhere and I decided to try it in Red Dahlia, the darkest color. The packaging is ridiculous. At first, I thought they were trying to do the Eco tube look and that the balm was fatter and in the cardboard piece. Lol. Well, much to my surprise, the fancy, wasteful tube is just a house for the regular plastic tube. Whatever. As one other person mentioned, I too agree that this probably led to the higher price. Don't get me wrong now, $7 is not bank breaker in general, but regular Burt's items are like $3. Anytime a brand tried to portray themselves as a "luxe" line, their items increase in cost. So about the actual balm, I like the moisturizing aspect and the color is light but nice. Good for minimal makeup days or going to the beach. I wish this had SPF in it because i planned on using it n vacation. I saw Titanium Dioxide in the ingredients, but nothing about sun protection in the label. If you like light washes of lip color, give this a try!
I really like these tinted balms. They have a pleasant yet faint scent to them and I find them moisturizing. I also like how they are sheer enough not to add a ton of color to my already pigmented lips, but they do enhance the natural shade of my lips. Red dahlia is a little deceptive in the name as I find this is more of a plummy brown hint of rosiness. I had expected a tad more red. Overall it's a nice subtle shade that gives a nice polished look, yet doesn't scream "LIPSTICK". Yes is is is a tad more pricey than your average drugstore lip balm, but totally worth it imo. The packaging is nice, simple and NOT childish (ie bonne bell lip smackers).
