I bought this intending to use it at work when I want a bit of color on my lips that can be reapplied any time without having to use a mirror. Nice ingredients, it is moisturizing, and leaves a glossiness on the lips (like a lip gloss that's worn down a bit and isn't in-your-face glossy but still has good sheen) without being sticky at all.
But that's about it. It's just a standard lip balm to me.
I bought Red Dahlia, the darkest color, which is very deep dark in the tube, but practically invisible on lips. (And I'm very fair-skinned.) I didn't expect this to be full-coverage or anything, of course, but I did expect SOME color.
Add to this the depressingly extraneous and giant cardboard outer container and the price (too much for nothing more than a lip balm!), and I'm left pretty disappointed. It also doesn't last very long at all on me, leaving me to constantly reapply. I've had to wind up the tube a lot lately, much more often than I'd anticipated, so it seems like this will be empty before I know it.

Great for somebody who wants only a HINT of colour that's 'MLBB' and doesn't mind reapplication. Bought this in Red Dahlia, Rose and Hibiscus. Hibiscus is my favourite, it showed up the best on my med-pigmented lips. Rose was nice too also pigmented, but nothing I've never seen before. Red Dahlia showed up the least on me, it went on dull and boring and so I returned it. The formulation is fantastic, really emollient and doesn't dry my lips out. Lasting power is about an hour tops to be generous. There's a nice natural subtle sheen to all these and they have a slightly sweet fruity smell that i can't quite put my finger on. I want to try the rest and would love to collect them all (that's how much I love these) but at $7.99 CAD a piece, I think I'll hold back lol. I wish they'd nix the bulky box to make it a little cheaper. 4 lippies since i can't say i love them all.

Stumbled upon this little beauty in Whole foods where had testers of all the colors and I bought this in the color Rose which gives a nice reddish pink tint. This glides on very smoothly, without any weird taste or smell. This is my first Burts Bees lip product..i think i am gonna buy the color Tiger Lily next. I paid 6 bucks for this product which is a little steep but the product overall is very good.

Burt's Bees Honey lip balm has been my HG lip balm for years....I used to have cracked dry lips this time of year, but have not had any lip problems since using Burts. I was so hyped at seeing the new tinted balms...I picked Pink Blossom to be on the safe side, Very, very happy with this...will probably be another HG. Texture is more like Burts Pomegranate balm...it has more slip than the honey which is thick..a "true" balm. Pink Blossom adds minimal color, but it does make my medium pigmented lips look a bit lighter, has a nice shine with NO stickiness or greasy feeling, and has no glitter or shimmer which is nice. I've tried other brands of tinted lip balm, including high end, and this trumps them all. This makes lips look healthy and adds shine and plumpness. IMO, better then Fresh Sugar Plum balm, and has cancelled my need to visit the Chanel counter for their new balm type product. I like, most of you, would prefer they did away with the cardboard tube, but I won't complain. For the price, a great deal.

I have always been a fan of Burt's Bees lip balm and I am pleased with these. I bought Honeysuckle and Red Dalia. The consistency is similar to the regular lip balms but they don't have the minty quality of the original and they don't have any shimmer like the other tinted balms and they have no taste which I appreciate. They are very sheer and do not glossy at all. I can barely detect Honeysuckle and Red Dalia enhances my natural lip colour but it isn't the dark red as indicated on the very cute but really unnecessary packaging. They are nice to use under lipstick or alone. Red Dalia looks very nice under Revlon Rosy Nude and similar shades. It doesn't change the colour but deepens it just a bit and helps prevent your lips from drying out, esp. under matte colours.

I bought this in the color Red Dahlia and I LOVE it. It's SO moisturizing and it gives a sheer wash of color (not my lips are not very pigmented so when I apply this it gives them a sheer, rosey hue to them). It looks very natural on and its perfect for the "no-makeup" looks or when you're feeling like a jeans/tshirt day, or even when you have a very dramatic eye look and you want more of a muted lip.
I haven't tried any of the other shades but I'm definitely planning to.
The only thing is I rated the packaging as a 2 because there is NO need for that extra huge cardboard tube. At least they picked something recyclable but I'd rather have it be slightly cheaper and just have the plastic tube with the product without the excess cardboard on the outside which serves no purpose.

First off I Iove, love, love Burt Bee's lip balms; I NEVER go anywhere without at least one or two in my purse. So when I happened across an almost empty display of the tinted lip balm in Target I grabbed the last Hibiscus. Then just a day later I decided I needed Honeysuckle and Red Dahlia. All three enhance the natural color of my lips and add a slight sheen without looking or feeling slick or greasy like a gloss. The other thing I love about Burt Bee's tinted lip balms (besides their conditioning qualities) is that they work very nicely with lipstick; Red Dahlia and MAC's Viva La Glam Cyndi is my favorite combination at the moment. I suppose the only negative would be the price. As others have mentioned, they could lose the cardboard tube packaging and knock a bit off the cost.

I've been a fan of Burt's Bees for years, and this new line of tinted lip balms is no exception. They are awesome! All the greatness & moisturization of regular Burt's lip balms, but with a wash of sheer color. I own Honeysuckle & Pink Blossom. Honeysuckle is a very light, sheer shiny peach, and Pink Blossom is a pale sheer pink. Both are moisturizing and give a nice layer of sheer color, but can be applied on the go without a mirror - which is all I want from a tinted lip balm. Most tinted balms are either so dark they're unusable with no mirror & must be applied like a lipstick (which defeats the purpose IMHO) or they're useless as an actual balm. This gets high points on both marks. These are my new HG and I will definitely continue to repurchase these.

I have all of these except for Red Dahlia. In the morning, I pick one of these for the day and keep it in my pocket and it's usually the only lip product I wear. The color payoff isn't that of a lipstick, but I think it's pretty great for just being lip balm. I have lightly pigmented lips though, so maybe that is why it works for me. Of all of them, Pink Blossom and Rose are my favorites. Hibiscus is pretty but a little too corally for my complexion, I think. They are extremely hydrating and I love the pear flavor.

I bought this in Red Dahlia, the darkest red shade in this tinted line. In the tube it looks like a nice wine-berry-red, thinking it would give lips a nice flush of sheer color. Gives lips a nice healthy sheen, but there's no color.
I'd like to scold Burt's Bees for the con of virturally no color payoff. I layered & layered this stuff on my lips just to see.....basically nothing. Major disappointment, & it's too expensive for a basic lipbalm at $7.
It's a great lip moisturizer however. Exceptional lip moisture & chap protection. I've tried other Burt's Bees balms that worked less well, as well as countless other balms that only waxed up my lips or, worse yet, brutally dried them out. It's the dead of winter now & I need something dependable - I can't tolerate dry chapped lips.
Exceptional balm, but a failure at lip tint as far as Red Dahlia is concerned...I didn't try the other colors but I assume they're all just as invisible (I could be wrong...a lot of ppl seem to be in love with Rose).
To me this is like using LipSmacker Dr Pepper or Burt's Bees pomegranate balm...good moisturization with hopeful tint that just doesn't show up. Still, all of these are good products, & I'd hate to say I might buy this balm again (if the price drops)...but it would be only for dewy healthy lips, clearly not for any color payoff. That's a shame.

I'm not a big Burt's Bees fan; except for their Baby Bee line, none of the products I've tried have done much for me. I'm on a huge tinted lip balm kick right now, though (along with the rest of the world), and when I saw this display I had to try it. I don't have much more to add than has already been said: SHEER color (but color--I have Red Dahlia and it makes my lips rosy); need to apply frequently, as with most balms; wonderful faint fragrance but no flavor; no sunscreen, which is great for those of us whose lips can't tolerate sunscreen; no need to use a mirror to apply; reasonably priced. I plan to try another shade and keep these in my everyday rotation!
Can't beat these ingredients:
olive fruit oil
sunflower seed oil
castor seed oil
cananga odorata flower wax
jasmine flower wax
rosemary leaf extract
carmine (WATCH OUT VEGANS--per Wiki, this could be from either cochineal beetles or from microbes engineered to produce this pigment)

i just wanna say that i LOVE this. i was walgreens today and i passed by the burt bees section in the aisle and this caught my eye. i have this in the shade pink blossom. the color on the packaging is actually a little lighter than what's in the tube, but that's perfectly fine for me. My lips are pretty pigmented with a corally reddish hue and so the pink that this lipbalm gives me doesnt look too fake.
ive always wanted to wear lipstick and lipgloss [and be able to pull it off], but ive had no luck. so far ive only tried drugstore lipglosses but i absolutely hate them. they smell awful and feel goopy in my lips. i also hate the artificial unnatural glitter and shine that it adds. but this is perfect. it lasts forever and is very moisturizing.
ive always liked burts bees and im very faithful to my regular burts bees chapstick. i love their nectar nude lipgloss but it doesnt last long. im so glad i found this!

This product is totally HG for me! I purchased it in 4 of the 6 shades they have (uploaded swatches too). Red Dahlia is red with brown/burgundy undertones more of a berry, Pink Blossom is a cool pink with blue undertones, Honeysuckle is a light nude, and Hibiscus (my fav) is a pink nude (more pink than nude). The finish is what you'd expect from a Burt's Bees lip balm; naturally shiny and healthy looking.
All the colors are sheer, but not so much that they don't show up on me, I can definitely tell the difference between all the shades. That said, however, I'm very pale and even the Burt's Bees balm with pomegranate oil makes my lips look rosy.
The consistency of this product is creamy and easy to apply and keeps my lips soft and hydrated (I live in vegas, lip moisturizers are a must). The color does fade, but it's so easy to reapply as you don't need a mirror or anything.
In terms of color choices, Hibiscus definitely works the best on me. And even though Red Dahlia is portrayed as the darkest shade, for some reason hibiscus shows up better on me? I also love Honeysuckle which is the perfect nude (though I can definitely imagine that this shade wouldn't show up on some people).
In terms of taste/fragrance...it has no taste and smells faintly of pears, which is also lovely.
To sum it up, I cannot rave about this product enough! I can't wait to try the other 2 colors!!!

This is absolutely holy grail status for me - and I have NEVER said that about one product yet! I bought this in Red Dahlia and it is perfect! The color is definitely there - with loads of shine. But the color isn't so intense that you need a mirror. The balm is very moisturizing and long lasting. And as someone else said, this is nothing like their Lip Shimmers, thankfully. The Lip Shimmers are frighteningly bad. I love the dark brown tube - no stupid girlie girl colors for me. I marked the packaging a 2 though because there was absolutely NO need for them to double wrap the thing in thick cardboard for crying out loud. Nothing like adding more trash to the landfill. Seriously, what a stupid idea that was. They could also knock a couple bucks off the price tag if they got rid of the two cardboard tubes and just put the regular tubes into a normal display case or bin like every other lip balm in the world. I will definitely repurchase but I'm going to wait a bit and see if they start producing it without the stupid cardboard tubing, and a cheaper price!

I have these in Tiger Lily and Hibiscus. I like the texture a lot - they're very creamy and feel like the Korres lip butters, but without the hassle of a pot. However, in terms of tinting they leave much to be desired. Some shades are better than others though - for example, Hibiscus shows up as a slight rosy tint while Tiger Lily is nothing more than clear balm on my pigmented lips. If you want a more obvious color you'll probably have to go with the darkest balm they offer (Rose or Red Dahlia).

I'm editing my review because I really like this product now. one lippie off because it does not have SPF. my favorites are red dahlia and rose, the other colors do not show up at all in my opinion.
I'm giving the packaging a 5 because I like that type of tube. I can fit it into a small pocket. (the trend of putting lip glosses into big packaging is annoying me!)
as for moisture-- well, I think their original beeswax balm is better, and lasts longer. I wish they would add just a tad bit more beeswax to this balm so it's thicker and more protective.
update: I saw they have new colors. BOOOO! I tried Sweet Violet, and just like the others, it is nowhere close to the color indicated on the package. It is baby doll pink, and barely shows up at all.

They finally did it. Burt's Bees has almost beaten Fresh Sugar and Korres at their own tinted lip balm game. These are NOTHING like their Shimmers, thank god. Although at a hefty $6.99 USD drugstore price, they sure beat higher end ones and do the same thing. However, it does not appear there is SPF in these. I got mine in Rose and it's a kicked up sheer rose version of BB's Pomegranate if it had more color...definitely a color dupe for Fresh Sugar's rosy tint. I would like to try more tints but am pleased with this one. It's creamy, without shimmer, moisturizing, and can be applied without a mirror. For me personally, as someone who is frustrated with lipsticks and glosses to the point of ending up most days in a chapstick anyway, these are a VERY welcome addition to the line. The overall cardboard tubing seems a bit wasteful but since I'm one to struggle and struggle with the traditional plastic seal on most lip balms, it's ok by me. Try these.

I bought this in Honeysuckle (because it the was last one left), and I'm so glad I did! At first, I was afraid of buying it sight-unseen. I really dislike the Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers, and I was hoping the balm would be nothing like them. Fortunately, they're not! As far as texture, they're very much like Korres Lip Butters - creamy with lots of slip. The Tinted Lip Balm doesn't dry out my lips after it's dried down either - a huge plus for me!
The color I got is lovely too. It's really sheer on my pigmented lips and tones down my natural color, making for a gorgeous, believable nude. On me, it looks a lot like Nars Little Darling lipstick (which I adore) but MUCH more moisturizing and also Korres Jasmine lip butter. The scent is a little fruity at first, but dies down after a couple minutes. It was $6.99, which seems a little on the high side for a drugstore balm, but it's much better than paying $22 for high-end balm. I also love that it comes in a Chapstick-type tube - I hate having to dip my fingers in some of the softer lip balms. I would definitely purchase this again...just waiting patiently for Rite-Aid to restock the other colors.

Have this in 'honeysuckle,' a peach-nude with no trace of pink. In tube the product appears almost a pale terra cotta shade, very warm. It applies very sheer and more like the color swatch in the display. No real shimmer, just butter soft creamy texture that restores softness and soothes the lip, while providing a nice tint of color. Thank you BB for leaving out any mint or mica shimmers. This is a lovely balm, worth the slightly higher price.

I have this in Red Dahlia and let me say, this is HG status for a balm next to my BB's Pomegranate Oil balm!! I adore the tint..it's perfectly sheer red that is YLBB! :):) It moisturizes just as well as my Pomegranate one and lasts longer than you'd expect..the color doesn't fade as long as you feel the balm on your lips. Highly recommend this! Of course, all the ingredients are all natural so that is always a plus. Burt's Bees, you've done it again! I can't wait to try the next product you come up with! :)
