#liptalktuesdays

Ever since the blogger's event that I attended for Burt's Bee's, I can't get enough of their products. I have been a fan of their Tomato toner for as long as I can remember, so it wasn't hard for me to get acquainted with their other products.

Now, Burt's Bee's brings us their new lippie product: Lip Shimmers!

Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer, PhP 395.00/each
I really enjoyed using these lip shimmers because it is not all the time that I am in the mood for pure lipsticks. There are days when I want something light to use on the lips but still have some color. Thank goodness for Burt's Bees latest lip shimmers!

I got mine from SampleRoom and Burt's Bees from this weekend, and I have been using them everyday, even at bedtime. I love how it's made from 100% natural ingredients, that's why it's safe to wear even to bed.

I love how it makes my lips look just bitten, and how it moisturizes my lips to the nth factor.
It's small and thin, quite handy! It won't take so much space in your purse or your cosmetic case so you can bring several shades with you if you wish.
Each lip shimmer has a safety, tamper-proof seal that you will have to peel off before using.
When you open the tube, it's flat and packed.
Just twist the bottom to dispense product! Don't twist it so much though, it doesn't go back down so you will have to push down with your finger just like what I did when I twisted it to get the photo below. I had to push it down with my finger to bring the product back inside the tube.
Here are some swatches of the lip shimmers on my arm. If you know me, I bet you would think that Raisin would be my first choice, but truthfully, I loved Rhubarb. It's very much of an attention-grabber, but it does color and brighten up my face.

These look sheer but it actually has good tints. They color the lips well.
I am totally smitten with these lip shimmers. It doesn't look like it can do so much when you hear the words 100% natural or Lip Shimmer, but surprisingly they are as much use to me as a professional makeup artist because I can use them on kids who are flower girls at a wedding! No more harsh makeup for the youngsters.
Here are the swatches on my lips. I think it's safe to say that Rhubarb really is my favorite shade, and Raisin is definitely second on my list!

  1. I recently tried Burt's Bees and unfortunately didn't like the menthol effect and the waxy finish. I personally think that it doesn't make a good base for lippies. This is a great alternative though, because it's glossy and already offers some color. Thanks for the review!

    1. Oh sorry to hear that :) it's too bad that using it as a base didn't work out well for you, it did do wonders on me though :) Thank you for dropping by and offering your two cents ♥ Big hugs!

  3. I think BB lip products are great as a standalone product but I don't use it as base because it makes lipstick slip around.. I love how much it heals my lips <3 Buti ngayon may tinted variants na. The colors remind me of Blistex :)
