Love these and they are my go to. I often have one in my pocket because I can apply to my lips without looking. I love all of the colors I bought--many--except for the forest one, just looks horrible on me. I'm thinking about buying back-ups of my favorites hibiscus and rose. I have nothing bad to say about these; they have been the lip product I was looking for for a long time.

I have been a fan of these tinted balms since 2011. Since then I have tried many higher end alternatives and other drugstore options (I.E Maybelline Babylips). To this day, Burt Bees is still one of my favorite formulas. I own all of the shades.

Petunia is my favorite for an everyday look, as it's a light warm pink. It looks very natural on my NC10 skin, but I imagine for the average person Petunia would be more suited for a smokey eye look.

Blush Orchid is the slightly paler, but much more cool toned, version of Petunia. This is a milky light pink with a purple undertone. Most companies seem to love putting a blue undertone in any light, cool toned pinks. Despite being warm toned myself, I pull off the purple undertones much better than blue. So Blush Orchid has my vote.

Pink Blossom is my 3rd favorite. I'd describe it as a medium pink with a blue undertone. I'm not crazy about the depth of the shade nor that blue tone. However I'll wear this on days where I'm not wearing much eye color or blush to perk my face up.

The formula is what sets Burt Bees apart from the rest. These are VERY moisturizing. I often reach for one when my chronic dry lips are chapped. The pigmentation is pretty awesome too. I liked the popular Fresh Sugar Balms everyone raves about. I even bought a few. Yet I prefer the Burt Bees version.

Word of advice - do not judge the colors based off the packaging. I suggest googling them beforehand to get more accurate pics as the packaging depicts a way off shade.

Obsessed with the Hibiscus. Looks absolutely gorgeous on my lips, and thought it's slightly greasier than I usually prefer, it's not bad. I'd stick with Hibiscus to add a cute natural pinkish-coral hue to naturally medium-shade lips. The new Zinnia color so far hasn't been too visible on my lips.

I did not like this product at all. It was the first Burts Bees lip balm I bought after hearing so many people rave about it. It was awful. The chemical scent and drying texture is not what I would expect or look for in a lip balm. For me, a lip balm should hydrate or give the illusion of hydrating your lips. This did neither. I would rather use menthol scented Chapstick than this product. In fairness I haven't tried the other product in their line up so maybe a non tinted lip balm would work fine. I wish I hadn't jumped on the bandwagon and wasted my money on this tinted lip balm.

I bought the color Hibiscus. The balm is over packaged and comes inside a cardboard tube for some reason. Maybe they wanted it to look higher quality which it is not. It comes in a chapstick like tube. Yes this product does feel nice on your lips and hydrates them. If you want to carry it in your hand and re-apply every 10 minutes your lips will stay moist. For me, the application lasted for about 10 minutes then just sort of disappeared. No tint was even left behind. :/

I tried this a long time ago and I couldn't remember if I liked it or not. I found it on sale for $6.70 CND and picked up petunia. I did think it was going to be really sheer, but its really really sheer like I might as well have bought clear lip balm for half the price. Also, as soon as I put it on I could remember why I hated it before: the bubble gummy smell is the exact smell that makes me carsick in the summer and when that fades you have a really have waxy smell like crayons. It does feel nice on the lips. I wouldn't buy it unless you're very pale, otherwise I'd just buy clear ChapStick for cheaper. Definitely smell it before buying

Firstly looking at the photo of this product you could be fooled (like I was) into thinking this lip balm is something special compared to the usual Burts Bees lip balms - it's not. That is just the outer packaging (a superfluous cardboard tube) making the product look a bit more glamorous than it is - inside is the standard size lipbalm. I purchased Honeysuckle which looked like a pale nude colour, in the hopes it would tone down my highly pigmented lips, but in a more easy going and natural way than a lipstick. In this respect it was a total fail - the colour pay off is so sheer that it makes almost zero difference. So that leaves just a lip balm - only it isn't very good at that either. I found it ultimately made my lips feel a bit sore and dry. Upon application there is a tingling sensation, so there must be an irritating ingredient in there. I have previously tried the regular Burts Bees lip balm and found that was not moisturising enough either. It could be classed as an ok product for someone whose lips are not sensitive and highly pigmented, except for the fact it is so overpriced. Almost twice the price of a regular lipbalm - and it really isn't anything more advanced than regular.

I was on the search for more natural looking lip colours, and kept being introduced to Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balms. So, I finally gave in, and purchased 3 colours: Rose, Pink Blossom and Sweet Violet. The colours are pigmented and show up pretty well on my lips, but I find that hotter environments allow for a more smoother application than in colder environments. The colours are very sheer on the lips, but they are not long lasting which is a bit disappointing. As for its nourishing properties, this product could have been better. I can get away with using this tinted balm on its own in hotter climates, but when the weather is colder and harsher to my lips, this balm is not my saving grace, and I notice my lips need a little more to combat the dryness. These lip balms are lightly scented and don't really taste like anything when I apply them on my lips. Despite me saying this product isn't long lasting or very moisturising, I still quite like these lip balms and will be repurchasing unless I find an even better alternative. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for nude lip colours or tinted lip balms with natural ingredients.

I have this in the shade Hibiscus, and I really like it. The colour payoff is great for a tinted lip balm and it's pretty moisturizing. The scent is pretty faint and it doesn't bother me too much. The only con I have is that it dries your lips out a little after it fades and the colour tends to just stay in the cracks of your lips, so exfoliation is a must before wearing this.

I have this in the color Honeysuckle,it's nude.I just started to use this more often and I can say it really moisturizes and made my my chapped lips soft and the way that can wear lipstick without my lips looking so damn chapped and dry! It has lovely sweet scent,but doesn't have any taste.So it's perfect for me and I like the nude coloring it gives,and lips do look pretty then.Got this cheaper,about 4£ from fragrancedirect.com,they have all kind of makeup stuff with low price.
