Burts Bees Tinted Lip Balm Review

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.


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.

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.

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:


LeapingBunny Logo

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.


Certified Natural Product Association Symbol

Mission statement taken from the Certified Natural Products Association website HERE

“As the leading voice of the natural products industry, the Natural Products Association’s mission is to advocate for the rights of consumers to have access to products that will maintain and improve their health, and for the rights of retailers and suppliers to sell these products.”


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.

    I like the sound of this lip balm. I use lip balm quite a lot as my lips tend to dry out quickly and adding a dash of colour wouldn’t be too bad eh?
