Burt's Bees Lip Shine - Fig

I can take or leave traditional lip balms usually.  You know those ones that are like a chapstick?  Regardless of brand I tend to find them sticky and heavy and I rarely ever finish them.  I think maybe the only ones recently that I've liked a lot are the Maybelline Baby Lips ones from a couple of years ago.

I have to say I've had something of a spree on lip balms recently having invested in one from Nivea and a Carmex tinted one so no doubt these will be popping up on the blog some time soon.  You can never have too many lip balms in my opinion, considering how easy they are to get lost - coat pockets, bottom of handbags, little change tray in the car ... you know what I mean.  That's why more than one on the go at any time is essential for me!

But ...

... this is a review on Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Shine.  I have to admit that I do like this one a lot.  The colour is 'Pomegranate' which is a reddish colour.  It sort of tints the lips and gives a shine but also seems to give quite a lot of colour at the same time which I found impressive and a good choice if you want a balm that makes it look like you're wearing a lipstick.

I've been testing it for a few days because you can never really tell first off if it's going to be good not.  It does last quite a long time but obviously as it's a lip balm it's easy to reapply without a mirror on the go so it wouldn't matter if it didn't have staying power really.  It didn't seem to smudge all over cups etc, like usual lipsticks do and it also didn't bleed into the little lines round my mouth (result!).  It also leaves my lips super soft which is really essential this week with the weather suddenly getting very cold, the extremes of temperature between outdoors and indoors is huge and that's when my skin starts to have a crisis and dry out.

I've also got Burt's Bees 'Red Dahlia' tinted lip balm which I'll photograph and do a quick separate post on, it's more of a pale red rather than brown/red like this one.  I've just checked, they don't seem to have an SPF in them but these would look great in the summer too I think, with a few freckles/tan and a bit of bronzer, definitely a product that can be used all year round.
