Beauty Aisle: Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmers


Burt's Bees Lip ShimmerBurt’s Bees products usually strike us as most appropriate for the backpack beauty bags of teens and tweens.

But the brand’s new Lip Shimmers perform well enough to convince us otherwise. If you can live without sophisticated packaging, the Shimmers (which are not totally new but were recently reformulated and released in three new shades) are a great daytime lip option. They’re like a Chapstick upgrade.

Why? Because the blend of fruit seed oils (strawberry, apricot, black currant) and shea butter feels supremely nourishing when you apply.

And while they feel like lip balm (you even get the familiar tingly taste and feel, from peppermint oil), the colors are deeply pigmented and vivid, giving you a pretty pout. Of the three new shades, our favorite is the purple-y Plum.

Plus, the ingredient list is pretty kissable, as is the price.
