These are the bees knees!

On my quest for lipsticks I happened upon these lovely lip shimmers from Burt’s Bees in a local grocery store in Maine. I bought one in Rhubarb believing it would be a lip tint – how wrong I was. These sticks of delight are very highly pigmented and could be sold as lipsticks. I was so impressed with the colour and opacity that I went out and bought 4 more – I wasn’t disappointed.

The colours from left to right are: Radiance, Guava, Peony, Caramel and Rhubarb.

These shimmers are simply wonderful. They have a tingly taste and smell of peppermint – which leaves your lips feeling fresh and clean. As well as being highly pigmented they also dose your lips with a whoping hit of moisture which is great in my book. If I had to criticize them (which I am loath to do) I would like the richer colour to come in a bullet form to make application easier.

My favourite colour is Peony as it is such a natural gorgeous pink – but I love them all.

You can buy these lip shimmers at many supermarkets and pharmacies in America. I bought mine in Hannaford in Maine. They will be nestled somewhere on the natural and organic aisle. Many online shops sell them too. They are cheaper in the US (lucky you) at only $5.99 but they are still pretty cheap here in the UK at £5.99. I am sure you could find them cheaper too.
