Burts Bees – Lip Shimmer in Guava
This post may contain affiliate links.
This pink Lip Shimmer in Guava is the first of two Burts Bees lip products that I am testing right now. I just love Burts Bees’ vision – “…to create and educate people on truly natural products that have a positive effect on both you and the world you live in for the good of your well-being, for the good of the environment and for The Greater Good.” Burts Bees 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 pink shimmer colour goes on nicely and you can see from the image above that it is a soft and creamy rose pink colour – it is like a cross between a shimmer lipstick and a lip balm. Unfortunately the high amount of shimmer means that it is not good for wrinkled or dry lips as the shimmer can gather in the cracks, but if your lips are smooth, plump and well moisturised then this is a great little product, and it lasts for quite a while too without need for reapplication. It has a pepperminty flavour which makes your lips tingle – I love this, but if you’re not keen on mint then it might not be for you. The ingredients are 100% natural and include sunflower oil, shea butter and beeswax.
Good quality natural make-up is hard to find, so I would definitely recommend this Burts Bees Lip Shimmer in Guava if you prefer to try and use natural products. There are 9 different shades available, I really want to try out Champagne (a pale creamy colour) and Papaya (a mid-brown).
Burts Bees Lip Shimmers are priced at £5.99 each (which I don’t think is bad for a lipstick), and can be purchased from Burts Bees. I think I have found myself a new favourite brand…
