Must Try! Especially if you're like me and you hate sticky goop of any kind on your lips but you are looking for some color. My lips are chronically chapped to the point of not even bothering with anything other than intensive treatment balm because it just isn't worth the maintenance of lipstick and/or gloss which would only accent and worsen the cracking. But now I have this :). I got Hibiscus to play off my naturally berry-pink toned lips. Can't wait to get something deeper or softer colored next time.
Considering all the various lip tints on the market, it's pretty hard to beat the price and the quality of this one. It's incredibly smooth and hydrating. NOT sticky: very buttery, almost oily with a nourishing feel. It is also a true tint with sheer color and some shine, so not for those wanting something more matte with coverage. Natural ingredients (100% in this case) without petroleum derivatives is an added bonus I also look for personally; which is why I've come to love Burt's Bees.
Downsides are it's not the longest lasting lip color and the packaging needs work. It comes in an all brown twist tube just like the Burt's Bee's Lip Balm so you have to look closely to read to determine what the color is. When you buy it in store it's in a cute color coded cardboard canister, but after that you're on your own, lol. BUT something pretty and healthy at $7 (plus maybe with a handy dandy Ulta coupon on top) you can't go wrong!
Good idea, terrible execution. No colour, the Emperor's New Clothes of tints. Moisturizing? Not in the least! Waxy, hard texture, lack of colour, very very short-lived (wipes off by itself in like, 2 secs) = yes.
I love this tinted lip balm!! I don't own many lip products, nor have tried many tinted lip balms, but I love this one. Sure, it is rather pricey ($7 for a small, chapstick-sized tube), but I've found it to be very mosturizing. I have dry lips, and using this has helped them heal!
Texturewise- I have owned other lip products (glosses, lip balms, lipstick etc), but none have come close to this one. This one goes on smoothly, and isn't too sticky or glossy. It is perfect!
I own the Hibiscus shade, it adds the perfect amount of colour without being too apparent. (i.e. doesn't look like lipstick, looks very natural)
I gave it a 3 mainly b/c I felt it was a waste of packaging.. In that large cardboard tube, there's a small, chapstick sized tube rattling around inside of it!
I have both the Rose and Hibiscus tint, and I love them, however, I probably won't be repurchasing this because it is too pricey for a lip balm. It's about $7 for one, and there are other tinted lip balms out there that are as great as this one.
I have this product in Pink Blossom, one of my HG lip products.
The Packaging: Normal lip balm tube. 'Nuff said.
The Product: A very sheer baby pink balm with a hint of glossyness. I prefer lip balms or gloss sticks to actual lip gloss because they tend to be less sticky and/or glassy. This gives enough shine that my lips look full, but not enough that I look like I coated my lips in oil. I love how sheer the color is: just as advertised, it is TINTED not FULL COVERAGE (Grrr at people who took lippies off for that) in a sweet pink perfect for everyday. As with all Burt's Bees lip products, it is super moisturizing :) If you have super pigmented lips, I would suggest going for a color other than pink blossom.
The Price: More than for a normal Burt's Bees, but less than most tinted lip balms of equal quality (Laura Mercier wants $20 for theirs, and Tarte costs $15 compared to $7 of Burt's Bees). Worth it, imho.
I bought the 'Rose' tint. Anything 'rose' just has to be part of my collection.
The packaging is cheap and quantity is less for the price charged.
Why, oh why does lanolin have to be an ingredient in Burt's Bees lip balm?
I like this product, i bought it in pink blossom and rose, they are both beautiful colors. I like pink blossom more because it suits me better, but i think both colors are really pretty. I liked the texture, taste and scent of them too. The only downside really is the price... I thought i was getting two large tinted lipbalms because of how large the packaging was but boy was i wrong. I payed $7 each for these and it turns out to be the size of a lip smackers chapstick. Now i know its natural and all that but SEVEN dollars for this small thing?! That is far too much. All in all i love them, but am hesitant to buy again because of how expensive they are for the size that they are.
I bought this at Beauty Bar for almost USD15 here since it's an import. They only had 4 shades and I liked Red Dahlia the most since it wasn't too pale on my lips (I have acidic lips) and the colour showed up nicely. At first, I was a bit turned off because it looked dark plum to brown on my lips but a few minutes later, the colour subdued to a semi-transparent wine shade on my lips. It's flattering for me, which is a rare thing because I generally have a difficult time looking for the perfect shade of gloss or lipstick.
The outline of my lips are slightly darker, so what I like about this balm is that it covers that entirely to match the colour of the rest of my lips. Most glosses are translucent so they don't work that well for me. In addition, I love that this is a balm so I now have a replacement to my spearmint Chapstick :) I used to wear Chapstick underneath my lipstick but I find that this weakens the lipstick's staying power. With this tinted balm, I get the best of both worlds by hydrating my lips and getting a nice, flattering shade :) I'd definitely repurchase! Not to mention I'm loving the cute, understated packaging :)
I had high hopes for this one. The packaging is unique and the colors look promising. I bought this in rose and it makes my lips look beautiful. Natural but brighter. The only thing I don't like is that instead if moisturizing my lips, this makes them dry. I think it might have to do with the beeswax. I've always had this problem with beeswax based lip balms. No exceptions. If it wasn't because of this fact I would continue buying it. I don't know how this doesn't show on some people. I have two-toned lips, upper lip being very light brown, and my lower pink. This makes them look even in two swipes. I'm not kidding. It could be that I have a slightly heavy hand. Anyways, I recommend this to anyone who has no problem bees wax based balm. And looking for something just easy to work with. I think this is great to get teens and younger, as some would maybe like a little color but aren't allowed to wear makeup. I think it is a great alternative.
I wanted this product to be a non-scary introduction to lip colour, and it fulfilled that purpose well. I think lipstick makes me look like a clown or a little kid playing grownup, and I hate the sticky slickness of glosses. Anyway, I bought this in Rose and it provides a very sheer, natural looking, temporary boost of colour. I get dry lips and I'm used to applying balm throughout the day, so the (lack of) longevity doesn't bother me. The biggest con is the price.
