Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm REVIEW
“A Hint of Color that Cares for your Lips”
- Shade: Honeysuckle
- Cost: $7.99
- Size: 4.25g
Burt’s Bees has rocketed from a small company in Maine, USA to everyone’s pocket chap-stick. They pulled-off this marketing marverick by returning to natural ingredients and of course- beeswax to fix chapped lips. Their product works better than all the other cheap-synthetic brands. For this reason, this lip balm is one you tell your friends about and then buy 2 more… This brings me to their latest concoction and this Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm review.
NEW LINES- NEW PRODUCTS
It’s no surprise Burt’s Bees have been dabbling in new products beyond the scope of their regular “yellow” tube brand… Lately new forms of Burt’s Bees lip treatments are scoring places on shelves. I love their “Lip Shimmer Line” and constantly preach how its my “go-to” lip-gloss, but I also wanted a very lightly tinted lip balm for a more natural look…
Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm is the perfect combination. The tube itself looks like and rolls-up like any ol’ lip-chap; the lip balm has no smell either. The shade in this review is a deep pink shade (but you can choose from 8 different shades from all ranges- lighter to darker…) The finish effect is very subtle but lovely.
NOT A LIPSTICK – IT’S A LIP BALM
No to be mistaken, this product goes on light- really light. It’s tinted using 100% natural ingredients because nature knows color. Looking at the product can be fooling- it looks like it might go on darker but it definitely doesn’t. You need to do the triple lip swipe over your lips to get in on good. It leaves behind a perfect hint of pink plus gives your lips all the same benefits you’d get from regular Burt’s Bees Lip Balm. When you’re looking for a lip treatment minus a “lipstick” factor- this is a great lip tint option.
CERTIFIED NATURAL PRODUCT
Burt’s Bees make sure their products are meeting cosmetic standards for health-minded buyers. Instead of the product being wrapped in a bunch of non-recyclable junk, this lip balm comes in a 100% recyclable cardboard tube (made of 60%) recyclable materials. The packaging also sports the 2 following logos that are of much importance and meaning:
Products with a “leaping bunny” symbolize that the company will not or does not, commission, conduct, or are party to any form of animal testing.

YES, I’D BUY IT AGAIN
From the packaging, to the product- it’s pretty. It’s a “step-up” Burt’s Bees lip-gloss that gives your lips a little more than a beeswax seal of protection. No deep dark effect, no sparkle, just a pure gloss hint of tint that also helps with chapped lips. Made in the USA, no animal testing, and meeting cosmetic all-natural standards are reasons this company continues to gain steam and barrel over cheaper-synthetic competition brands. Burt’s Bees have ninja sharp skills when it comes to the next best lip-balm blend but most notably they’re leaders in bringing nature back to beauty.
