This is the ultimate MLBB for me that I haven't been able to find in any high end lipstick ever. On my NC30 skin this looks extremely natural. It shows up as a deeper version of my lips, but I have kind of pale lips. This is the perfect lip for professional situations as well because it will not draw any attention to the fact that you're wearing lip product, but it wakes you up and makes you look healthy. It makes me teeth look great too. There is no shimmer and a little bit of natural shine. If I could have one lip product this would be it, and I will continuously repurchase.

I am late to the party on this one. Last week, I finally picked up Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Fig and have happily been using it every day and evening. I agree with all of the other positive reviews: it is fantastic! It is reasonably priced, feels nice on the lips (the peppermint oil causes some subtle tingling and plumping), and, amazingly, turns out to be MLBB. Another reviewer wrote that the color is similar to Clinique's Black Honey; it is, but (can I be writing this?) Burt's Bees' Fig formula/consistency is better and longer lasting. The only negative is something that was mentioned a few years back and has not been fixed: the packaging doesn't allow you to twist the color back into the tube. So, be VERY conservative when you twist up the bullet!

I bought this based on the reviews here and thank you for such accurate ones! This is perfect if you want a YLBB color. If you apply it, it blends right in with the insides of your lips (mine anyway), yet for a balm has enough pigment to cover. It's the best of everything, feel, color, taste, and not dry, too moist or waxy. This makes your face look nice and teeth, too. I just bought the Rhubarb too but it's just a tad too pink for me - however, I may apply a little over Fig for a little more brightness. Overall, these are exceptional lip products and I would buy in the future.

I never screw anything like balms up because they always seem to get stuck up.. broke my rule cus I was so curious to see how much there was and there is a lot of product! but then halfway going down it stopped so I had to push it down and some was sliced onto the brim but I just put that on my lip instead of wasting it and just wiping it. if you're not a lipstick girl (like me--I only have 2), want color with lip benefits, these are not expensive for how long a tube will last and every color has such impact that if you don't want the full color, you can dot and rub, and repeat as much as you like. gave it a 4 though because since it is a balm, it's rounded, and if you have lips that do that little M thing it's kind of annoying getting the balm to be precise in that area.

The color is beautiful. For daytime wear, I use it more sparingly: Instead of running it across my lips as I would with a clear lip balm or lipstick, I dot it on. It still has a terrific color payoff, but it is more subtle and suitable for a pretty and casual look during the day. If I use it at night, I can afford to use it a little more liberally. It has a nice tingling sensation when you put it on, so I like to use it as a sort of pick-me-up makeup product. I'm still using the tube of lip shimmer that I bought a few years ago so it still has the problem of not being able to twist down, but I've heard that Burt's Bees has acknowledged that problem since then. Overall, a very nice lip product, suitable for any age or skin color.

I love this color. It's very similar to Clinique's Almost Black Honey lipstick. When you apply it, it feels tingly because of the peppermint oil. The color is a muted, semi-sheer wine color. It does moisturize and the lasting power is decent (better than the Black Honey).
This is for everyday wear or going out. I will keep purchasing.

Fig comes off as a plummy mauve pink, a perfect MLBB shade. I'd honestly call this the poor/cheap girl's Chanel Boy but minus the high shine factor. Great for the days when you want a bit of color but don't want the shine of a gloss or the impact of a lipstick. Also, Burt's Bees finally fixed the problem where you couldn't retract the color back in the tube, so there's no reason to not pick up this color (and several more).

This is my HG daytime lip product! Just the right amount of colour and I love the peppermint oil. The fig shade also works well with my ruddy colouring and high lip pigmentation. Very decently price, and an environmentally responsible product! :)

It's 100% natural and matches my actual lip colour. It's also a decent moisturizer. Unfortunately there's no way to screw the balm back into the tube. Furthermore the product has a tendency to be too soft to apply precisely. Once on, it bleeds everywhere. I'll stick to the original balm, thanks.
