Burts Bees Lip Shimmers in Watermelon & Rhubarb

Tuesday, 8 May 2012


I have loved Burts Bees lip balms for a very long time and have wanted to try out these Lip Shimmers for a long time too!  I received two of these in the recent Grab Bag promotion that was on, and have to say that these little beauties have become new staples in my make-up bag.  Like the regular Burts Bees lip balms, Lip Shimmers are 100% natural so they don't have any artificial fruit scent to them, and have the same cooling menthol sensation when you apply them.  They're in a skinnier tube than the regular lip balms, but still have the same fantastic moisturising qualities that I have come to expect from Burts Bees lip products. 


Lip Shimmers apply nice and smooth and seem to be perfect texture wise (they're not too sticky or feel heavy on the lips), and deliver a good wash of colour that was much more pigmented than I was expecting (I'd say they're in the same league as the Revlon Lip Butters, but a tiny bit more matte and stay put a little longer too).  The two that I received were Watermelon, a cool pink (1st pic below) and Rhubarb, which is a brighter coral-red (2nd pic below), with Rhubarb probably being my favourite out of the two, though I do like Watermelon for a fuss-free everyday look. 




Have you tried any of these Lip Shimmers?

  2. The Watermelon shade looks gorgeous, just what I've been looking for. Burts Bees always do the best lip care!

  13. These seem like the perfect everyday shades for a slick of natural-looking colour that isn't too "done". Any lip product with a cooling sensation already has my approval, I love mintiness :p
