My Thoughts
In the tube, Sweet Violet looks like a soft radiant orchid color. It’s a new shade. It smells sweet and delicious. When applied to my lips, the color tint is so subtle I can’t tell a difference. However, my lips feel silky soft. I think the coconut oil, olive oil and shea butter really do a great job moisturizing my lips. Ultimately this is too tame of a shade for me, as I found myself wishing it was more true to the color you see in the tube.

Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Peony

Peony Lip Shimmer – $5 for .09 oz

My Thoughts
In the tube Peony looks like a mid-tone shimmery mauve pink. It’s a much lighter, very frosty pink when worn. It’s not a shade I find flattering on me. I do love the minty smell and taste. Again, it’s very moisturizing on the lips and comfortable to wear.

My Thoughts
I really like the light pink Spring Splendor shade! While I don’t like the smell, since it’s sort of strangely waxy to me, I do like the color and the way it feels on my lips. The doe foot applicator makes it easy to apply the gloss.

My thoughts
Of the four products I was sent, I like Pucker the best. It’s the most pigmented. It has a sweet candy, maybe strawberry, type scent. I love the finish; it’s a pretty reddish shade with no shimmer. It’s very thick and moisturizing on my lips. I think it’s a great way to wear red if you’re afraid of the color because of it being on the sheer side.

One of the things that you can do with these products is layer them. You can take any shade in the Tinted Lip Balm and use it underneath either of the glosses. Because I like the finish of the Lip Shine better than the Lip Gloss, I would recommend layering with the Lip Shine. You can also use the Lip Shine to tone down the frostiness of the Lip Shimmers. No matter what you do, your lips will be soft and happy because of the added moisture with these products.

Overall, I think the Burt’s Bees lip products are perfect for those who like a subtle lip or are afraid of brights on the lip. The Pucker Lip Shine in particular is great if you’re wanting to try out a red.
