Review Overview

Lip Shimmers are sheer, glossy lipsticks that apply well but irritate lips with a potent mix of peppermint and rosemary oils. Your lips deserve better than irritation!

Ingredients
Brand Overview

Strengths: Inexpensive.

Weaknesses: Many products have potent fragranced formulas; several formulas packaged in jars, which compromises their ingredients.

With humble beginnings in the town of Bangor, Maine, Burt's Bees is a brand focused on natural-themed, earth-friendly skincare. Unfortunately, in many cases, this also translates to less than beneficial formulas as not all of the natural ingredients used are helpful for skin.

Many of the plant extracts and oils used in these products, including orange oil, cinnamon oil, clove oil, lemon oil, eucalyptus oil, pine tar, alcohol, lime oil, and balsam peru, are problematic for skin and present a significant risk of irritation or a sensitizing reaction. Both the intriguing philosophy and inexpensive products are attractive, but it takes more than that to establish reliable products that are good for skin. It’s also important to consider the potential benefit (or potential harm) of the ingredients used.

There are some formulas to consider among the brand’s offerings, but some to be wary of—see our individual reviews on Burt’s Bees products for more details.

Great product; really pretty

Was surprised at the poor review for this. This is, hands down, my favorite BB product. I bought Rhubarb, which is a pinkish-red. The lighter colors may not show up as much. The color is very beautiful while not being over-the-top. It also lasts longer than most balms and is very moisturizing.

best lipstick i have ever had!

I discovered that my perpetual chapped, cracked lips was because of the lipsticks I used (Mac, Revlon, etc)I did not learn this until I switched to burt bees lip shimmer, it made my lips smooth and soft. I went back to the other brand (they have more colors ) lips dry and chapped again. Won't use anything else again.
