Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers in Apricot & Grapefruit for Spring

Burt's Bees adds two new, neutral shades to their Lip Shimmer ($4.99; burtsbees.com) range for Spring. These 100% natural Lip Shimmers combine the feel of a lip balm with a hint of color and some shimmer. Apricot is a warm, neutral pink with barely there shimmer, while Grapefruit is a frosty, shimmery pale pink. Apricot is a more flattering color and a gorgeous, swipe and go neutral on my skintone. *Press Samples







Packaged in a super slim, twist up tube, these Lip Shimmers are definitely a nice product to have when you can't be bothered with heavy lipsticks or glosses. The color is quite sheer, but very buildable and very moisturizing. There's a slightly strong minty scent and tingle which I'm not a big fan of, but its not something that lingers around for a long time. While I love how neutral Apricot looks on me, Grapefruit is a lot more frosty and a little too shimmery, better suited for someone with lips not as pigmented as mine. Overall, they're a nice product to have -moisturizing, hint of color with quite a bit of shine and perfect if you aren't a fan of high maintenance, overlay pigmented lip products.
