Burts Bees – Lip Shimmer in Champagne

I had been lusting after this Burts Bees Lip Shimmer in Champagne for ages, ever since I reviewed their Lip Shimmer in pink Guava last Summer (you can read that review here). Although I really liked the pink Guava one I felt that the more neutral Champagne shade would suit me better, so I decided to ‘invest’!
Burts Bees is one of my favourite brands for lip care products, they strive to produce 100% natural beauty products and they also do a lot of work to help protect bees, given that a lot of their products contain beeswax.
In my opinion a lot of natural beauty brands scrimp on their packaging design and end up looking a bit down-market. Not Burts Bees! I just love their packaging in eye-catching yellow and red, with just a touch of the traditional about it. This little lip shimmer comes in a twist-up bullet formation (although it does not twist back down which is a bit annoying) with the eye-catching Burts Bees logo on the front.
The Champagne Lip Shimmer has hardly any colour and is pretty much a clear glossy lip balm with a shimmery finish. You can see from the image above that it does give the lips a lot of gloss, although I was a bit disappointed that it was so clear I had imagined it would be more of an opaque pinky beige colour. The ingredients are 100% natural and include sunflower oil, shea butter and beeswax, and it does make the lips feel extremely moisturised so I think I will be using it as a lip care product rather than as a lip colour.
Burts Bees Lip Shimmer has a pepperminty flavour which makes your lips tingle – I love this (it reminds me of After Eight chocolates!), but if you’re not keen on mint then it might not be for you.
I am thinking that this Lip Shimmer in Champagne could perhaps be applied using a lip brush over a coloured matt lipstick if you wanted to add a bit of shimmer. You can see from the swatch image below how pale the colour is, just a hint of a pale cream colour with lots of golden shimmer.
Good quality natural make-up and skincare is hard to find, so I would still recommend this Burts Bees Lip Shimmer in Champagne but it’s definitely more of a lip care moisturiser rather than a lip colour. There are 11 different shades available, I really want to try out Papaya (a mid-brown colour).
Burts Bees Lip Shimmers are priced at £5.99 each (which I don’t think is bad for a good quality lip product), and can be purchased from Burts Bees.
