Review of Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers - Cocoa by gruveechik
EDIT: down to 3 lippies - the colour just isn't happening for me... makes my skintone look too dull. Other than that, marvellous product. i'd repurchase but a different colour. Here's my previous review:
Me: CCC (cool-based Caramel) an NC43/45 or CoverFX I40/B15. Extremely dry skin.
Finally finally Burt's Bees came out with more colours to their Lip Shimmers line. Cocoa is one of thse new colours.
Deeper cool-based neutral brown. BB's site says this has red in it.. but doesn't show up like that on me, if anything, it's a mauve-tinge. Has a bit of shimmer to it, but not chalky/icy/overly frosty. Great colour for me. BUT 1 lippy off b/c if i apply just a bit too much - then it makes my lips look dead. Moisturizes extremely well - even in winter conditions. Long-lasting. Tingly. Pepperminty but not overpoweringly so. Very good ingredients: Sunflower oil, castor oil, beeswax, candelilla wax, lanolin, cocoa seed butter, tocopheryl acetate & tocopherol (Vitamin E), peppermint oil, carnauba wax, rosemary leaf oil. May contain: Iron oxide, mica, carmine, titanium dioxide.
i'm very happy with this product and will repurchase. i might try Toffee next
