Over the years, I have found that Burt's Bees lip products are consistently some of the best affordable lip care products. I will be featuring their Lip Color products, which are fabulous budget buys and 100% natural!

The LIP SHINE ($7 USD) provides sheer color enriched with the moisturizing benefits of Apricot wax. I love how this dense, plush gloss glides on the lips for a sweet and super shiny finish. I have Pucker, a soft red that will suit any complexion. The Lip Shine was the 2013 Oprah Magazine O-wards Winner, so you know it has to be worth a shot! Try applying it over a Lip Shimmer for a pretty multi-dimensional effect.
The LIP GLOSS ($9 USD) delivers richly pigmented, pearlized color with high impact shine. This formula is enriched with nourishing oils to promote healthy looking lips and is available in 12 shades! Bonus: The shimmer in these Lip Glosses do not irritate my dry, sensitive lips. I did not expect to love it, but Spring Splendor color is the perfect 'My-Lips-But-Better' shade. Layer it over the Tinted Lip Balm for the illusion of a fuller looking pout!
The TINTED LIP BALM ($7 USD) is ideal for when the lips require a hint of color and a whole lot of conditioning. The Shea butter and botanical waxes in these tinted lip balms will help to soothe and smooth your lips. I own one of the new shades called Sweet Violet, a flattering and brightening pink-purple hue, but there are 9 wearable everyday shades for you to choose from! I may go back for the lighter pinks, Blush Orchid and Petunia.
The LIP SHIMMER ($5 USD) is a Burt's Bees classic. This was the first Burt's Bees Lip Color product I ever tried, nearly 6 years ago while I was in college! Oh, the nostalgia.. This slim lip balm provides luminescent, full coverage color and lightweight moisture with an invigorating peppermint flavor. Swatched today is Peony, a metallic pink-mauve, but my favorite is Apricot. P.S. Cocoa, the perennial favorite for medium tan to dark complexions, is finally back in stock.
