Recently I reviewed and loved all over the new Burt’s Bees Lip Shine. I eagerly picked up two of the new Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lipgloss due to the success I had with the Lip Shine formula.
These are available in 12 shades and promise a soft, shiny lipgloss experience with a natural formula.
Let’s take a look!
I’d love to tell you that Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lipgloss was as great an experience as the Lip Shine one but sadly, that wasn’t the case.
I picked up two shades at my local CVS. Eagerly got them home, opened, and applied. I typically toss things in my “to be reviewed” pile so you can see I was quite eager to try them out that I raced home and dove right in. I just really liked the Lip Shine and ws expecting a great experience with these. They also looked damn pigmented!
These have a drier formula.
Pigment is here and I’d say you’re looking at a full color gloss so what you see in the tube will translate to lips. Unfortunately I expected more shine, more glossiness, and less of the thinner almost waxy texture that I got. They formula kinda hugs lips and does offer moisture but applies rather patchy and dryish leaving a waxy film across lips that slides and migrates around.

You can improvise and apply clear gloss on top but really, you shouldn’t have too go to that extra step to get the gloss to look right. It’s a real shame because the colors in the tube look amazing but the formula isn’t exactly what I had hopes for!

Can’t have it all!
If you’re curious they are available now at drugstores.
