Burt's Bees

Tinted Lip Balm


i have a light pink/peach color [hibiscus, i think?] and i keep it in my purse for when i'm on the go and want to freshen up a bit, but don't want gloss. it's a very flattering color, but i'm not too into the scent/taste though.


I was really excited about trying out this balm in 'Tiger Lily". When I first applied it, it certainly insinuated the lines of my lips & the color pay off was not as opaque as had hoped. But maybe I had been a little too overly optimistic in expecting color pay off, my lips are a pretty pigmented naturally. I only use this product if I have just used my lip scrub. But usually end up layering over it with something else. I am not a fan of the smell of the balm. But the slight tint is nice I suppose, but I certainly prefer my original Burt's Bees lip balm!

Love at first swipe!

So I am currently "green-ing" my beauty routine and I recently picked this up. I heard great things about it so I decided I would give it a shot. I purchased the Pink Blossom one, it was the lightest of the pinks. Now, as much as I love that original Burt's Bees lip balm scent, I was hoping these wouldn't smell and be as drying as the original. To my surprise, it wasn't really like it at all! It actually moisturized my lips (I think the original is a bit drying) and created the perfect stain look. It was weightless and gave my lips the perfect shade of pink! Oh and did I mention the color lasts forever??

Jealous that the Burt's Bees brand this actually works for some people.

I thought that it felt too thick on the lips. It feels moisturizing at first, but overnight, I developed this thin layer of dead skin covering my entire lip. It's like my lips were fine and I put a coat of wax on it to dry. I feel like I wasted $8 on this. I got that shade "Petunia" which didn't do jack in the color department. Partially my fault I guess because my lips are a little pigmented. And no SPF!

I got the same waxy feeling and no good result with their Honey lip balm (which smells like diapers). This tinted lip balm has no bothersome smell or taste to me, but it didn't make the cut. Trash.

I have this in rose and hibiscus. really nice as a lip balm, goes on like butter and moisturizes well. I wasn't reapplying every 5 min. has a sweet fruity smell, faint and only noticeable in the tube. the tint of color is just right for rosey, natural-looking lips.

Not impressed with the tint.

When I saw that it would be tinted I thought it would be great. This balm does moisturize pretty well but it doesn't really tint and clumps a bit on your lips and sometimes tints a little too much...

Very moisturizing, but that's it.

I really wanted to like this lip balm but I really wasn't impressed. The only positive is that it is very moisturizing. It feels a bit thick on your lips but that seems to be the price you pay for moisture.

The biggest negative for me is the scent. It's HORRIBLE! It's like a combination of wax and cherry-flavored medicine. Thankfully the smell doesn't last very long once you apply it and you can't taste it either, but it's really strong when you open the tube. I don't know why they went with this scent instead of something like mint or vanilla, like many other brands do. I would prefer unscented balm to this fake cherry smell.

My second problem with this balm is that there is almost no pigmentation. I bought Red Dahlia, which looks like a rich dark red in the tube and looks invisible on my lips! I was really disappointed because I loved the color. I won't bother trying any other colors.

The bottom line is that this is a very moisturizing lip balm, but there is almost no color to it and it smells awful. VERY disappointing and absolutely not worth the $7 I paid for it! I can't even recommend this as a regular moisturizing balm because of the smell and high price tag. You can find cheaper lip balms that are just as moisturizing and smell/taste a lot nicer.

My colour of balm is Pink Blossom. In tube it looks rich and very bright! The smell is sweet like lollipop and very pleasant. The texture of the balm is so soft, it has in composition Shea Butter, which is a valuable, nourishing addition to moisturizers for the reduction of wrinkles and to improve the elasticity of the skin and protect it against environmental aging. By applying the balm I feel how my lips start to get moistened. They look more healthy and attractive. I apply a thin layer on lips, because I like to add a light colour to lips. But applying 2-3 layers will make lips more rich. To sum it up, I can say, that the lip balm solves my 2 problems very well: it gives moistening and colour. This lip balm is 100% natural, it has beeswax and shea butter inside. It doesn’t make lips sticky – it makes shiny. It is worth to try it!

My go-to

I have this in Rose and I love the color. It looks totally natural, like I just have a very rosy mouth. I wear it in every season, but in winter, it literally does not leave my purse- I am very fair and it provides just the extra color to make me look alive. If I am looking extra pale, I even put it on my cheekbones as blush, and it looks great and lasts well. Very moisturizing, and has lasted me forever even with constant use. I will say that it does not stain your lips much, so if you're looking for something a bit longer-wearing, maybe opt for Baby Lips. But I really prefer this- it's much more moisturizing, and doesn't smell like candy.

I use this balm all the time. I wanted to find a good moisturizing product and this delivers. I live in the desert where chap stick is basically a necessity. The tint doesn't show as much as I'd like but once you put it on, your lips stay moisturized which is something I can't say about 80% of the other chap sticks I've used. Buy. It.
