Burt’s Bees Lip Shine Review & Swatches

Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Shine is a new round of glossy, shiny lipgloss available in five shades for $7 each. I’ve never technically tried any of Burt’s other gloss products so I have nothing to compare this too sadly.

I will say it’s an excellent launching pad for me as I know I’ll be going back for more shades and now I want to try their other lipgloss products as well because if they are half as good as this Lip Shine you can dub me a happy Muse.

This natural, sheer lipgloss is enriched with moisturizing Apricot Wax which creates highly glossy finish on lips as well as provides a super moisturizing experience through the gloss’s wear.

My lips are terribly chapped at the moment and this has been a loving, healing, and hydrating companion to my sore, red, flaky lips.

Housed in a 0.5 oz tube with a slanted plastic applicator this gloss has a jelly-like texture which provides a plush finish on lips. It makes my lips look pouty, plush, and soft. The finish is very glossy with the sheerest of tints. I picked it up in Pucker which gave my lips a hint of natural red.

It is the type of gloss product that makes itself known as it doesn’t have a completely lightweight feel but it isn’t uncomfortable either nor does it have a sticky, tacky wear. Even sans tack it still manages to stick around on my lips for two to three hours without migrating.

Possibly the nicest thing about the product is the fact it adds moisture on first application and continues to hydrate throughout the wear thanks to the sunflower seed oil it contains.

I can’t really define the taste…it’s a little odd but not unpleasant…slightly sweet….!

Overall, I would happily pick up more shades of this delightful little gloss. It works well on its own and will make a fantastic gloss for topping on lipsticks and stains. Only problem I see is the lack of shades….variety is the spice of life and for this gloss loving lady I def need more than five shades to choose from.

Do pick one or two up!

I think you’ll like them as much as I do.

Muse Approved.

Available now at drugstores (I got mine at CVS) or online at www.burtsbees.com

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I wish the drugstores near me got more displays up sooner! I still haven’t been able to find these but when I can I’m definitely picking some up. I’m a sucker for a good tinted gloss. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Tali

    OMG you need to pick this up in the shade “Blush”. Pure awesomeness and this comes from a non-gloss person, normally it’s all lipsticks for me.

  • Lorraine ER

    Is it as shiny as it appears in the pic?
    I’m looking for a super-shiny gloss, drugstore pricing…

  • Tammie

    ;_; this sucked the moisture out of my lips and made them flaky…so sad because I was totally in the market for something like this…

    • the Muse

      REALLY? wow! I had really good success with it. kept my lips soft and plushy all day!

      • Tammie

        I know I was shocked/disappointed ;_;. I really wanted to love it but it’s going back :'(

          • Tammie

            Thanks *wipes tear*

            Hopefully I can find something else similar that works for me, and with a bit more color anyway…would be perfect! I actually like the Clinique one and I have Black Honey in it but I want something more pinky red too…

          • the Muse

            I’m so surprised they didn’t work I loved them!

  • Nat

    Oh Muse – you need to get Burt’s Lip Shimmer in Strawberry, it is an awesome MLBB. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • the Muse

      oh I have a few of the lip shimmers but not strawberry! will have to grab it!

  • Simone

    I picked up “sweet pink”, and although I cannot stand the name (thanks to my bf, if u catch my drift), I loved the gloss! It was a delightful surprise, as I wasn’t expecting much. It actually has a home in my purse, I love it so much!

    I’m thinking ill have to try one of the darker shades!

  • Avalith

    I just picked one up and omg I love it so much! Thank you for the recommendation!
