This is my day to day must have. It is a good moisturizer, great coverage and doesn't clump. Also has great staying power, reasonable, the mint taste is great for post-meal breath! Love it and lastly, you can get it at the drug store so super easy.

I have been obsessed with BB lip shimmers for awhile now. I bought this color not for myself but for a friend who is very fair with auburn hair and brown eyes. This color ended up looking fantastic on her, perfect for her autumn coloring! She still wears it when I see her sometimes and I can't get over how nice it looks on her. Also, she is not a glitter person but loves this stuff, which is saying a lot. This make great little gifts :)

This shade is a hard-to-find cool brown with sparse shimmer.
From the reviews here I thought that it would be a plummy brown, I don't detect much plum/ purple it's more grey-ish. This shade is just like the old Bonne Bell LipLixx tinted balms in "express-yo-self", which I thought I'd never find again since it was discontinued. I'm not much for the mint flavor but it's not a problem either. Overall a great tint stick, I just wish this shade had more plum in it.
EDIT: I love the mint effect! Also I find the shade works even better when mixed with a little clear balm/ oil. A lovely MLBB .

Cocoa is a nice neutral brown that is not too shimmery - a very natural brown color with some pleasant tingle and pretty darn good staying power. I love that the lip shimmers are slim enough to fit in my front pocket and easy to apply. Many of the colors in this line are awful, but this one, Toffee, Champagne, and Radiance I just love. And you really can't beat the price.

This feels more like a chalky lipstick than a tinted lip balm. Also, it has a stinging peppermint feel to it. I'm not talking about a nice tingle; this stuff has an uncomfortable sting to it. I'm giving it an extra lippie for the color, which is a perfect shimmery taupe but other than that, it is just awful.

I'm on my third stick of this. It's an absolutely gorgeous plummy brown shade that's like lip balm and shimmery and lovely and fairly goof proof. You can put it on without a mirror and not worry too much about the result. I love it! It even looks fabulous with a lipliner and a some gloss over it, but I think I like it best all by itself.

My favorite lip stuff at the moment. I love glosses and tints and never liked lipstick. I always needs some color and hydration on the lips and this is perfect.....I have three in different places so I never run out! It looks the nicest and most natural when first put on Aquaphor.

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 i disagree - if anything, it's a plum/mauve-tinge. Has a bit of cool-hued 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. Surprisingly good level of pigment, so not much is needed. Moisturizes 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.

I actually rather like this product. Aside from the tingle (which I love) and the great color, it also lasts for a very long time. I put a little of my favorite lip plumper on top and away we go. It even fades to a good color. I don't love the packaging, but will definately buy again.

I am very pale with neutral skintone, but with my dark hair, brows and green eyes this color (accurately described by others as purpley brown with silver shimmer) really works - in moderation. If I were to use it all alone, the color would build up too quickly and look a little bit on the deathly purple side of things. However, if I first apply my clear palmer's cocoa butter lip balm, followed by a light coat of this on top, it's perfect. Reminds me of Clinique Surprise (my HG lipstick) when I apply it like this, though without any red or bronze, not as high maintenance, more moisturizing, and of course it has that great minty scent/flavor. Even though I have to use another lip balm with it, it still gets bonus points for not needing a mirror - unlike most of my l/s. I also like the amount of shimmer - gives my lips sheen without the goopiness of gloss. It wears very well - long lasting AND moisturizing, and it gives my lips a nicely polished, just stand-out enough look for regular days. Good stuff at a fantastic price! EDIT: I hate the mintiness now.

I love this stuff! The color stays on for a long time. Although the Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers look like they would be a chapstick or lip balm by the way they are packaged, they are not. They are much more like a lip stick. They have a lot of color, or at least the Cocoa shade does. Also, the Lip Shimmers have peppermint oil in them, so they give your lips a tingle sensation. For less than $4.00 this all natural lip stick is a bargain!

This is a nice product. It has the same minty tingle that the regular Burt's Bees lip balm has. It feels very nice. The color reminds me of MAC Coco pigment. It is that same cool color, like a silver frosted brown taupe, if that makes sense. I found it to be long wearing, so I didn't really need to reapply much through the day. The color does build, but if I use to much you can really see the silver frost, which can look a bit strange. I just bought another shimmer in Raisin, so I hope I like that one as well.

I gave this four lippies just because I love the Lip Shimmers line in general-- but this shade is NOT as advertised. From the description, "brown with reddish tones," I was hoping for a gloss version of their Fig lipstick. Actually, the shade is a VERY cool-toned purplish-brown with silver shimmer. It's similar to L'Oreal's Mystic Mauve in the Colour Riche line, but purpler. I just can't make this one work with my warm PPP complexion- it makes me look deathly.
