There’s nothing better than soft, kissable lips and this spring, Burt’s Bees Canada has released a fabulous line of lip glosses and balms in fresh spring shades that will help nourish and moisturize your pout! Recently I received the new Burt’s Bees Lip Shine, Lip Gloss and one of the four new shades of Tinted Lip Balm to review. Burt’s Bees lip balm is an absolute essential in my purse so I was excited to see if the new balms and glosses impressed me as much.
I received Burt’s Bees Lip Gloss in Ocean Sunrise, Lip Shine in Wink and Tinted Lip Balm in Blush Orchid. All three shades were variations of light pink, which is one of my favoured lip shades, and I loved the sparkle in the Lip Gloss especially.
I tried the Lip Shine first. Many lip shines have sweeteners that make them tasty to wear but can actually dehydrate delicate skin. Fortunately, Burt’s Bees has the right idea with these nourishing shades that have a hint of flavour and plenty of moisturizing ingredients. The colour is very subtle and since I have darker lips, the change in my lip colour was pretty slight. But the glossy shine was absolutely gorgeous and the product left my lips feeling soft and nourished.
The Tinted Lip Balm is something I’ve used before and I absolutely love the slight touch of natural-looking colour that it adds to my smile. I have found that these balms don’t have the powerful nourishing effects of the traditional line of balms and actually tend to feel a bit dry after a few hours, so what I like to do is layer the Tinted Lip Balm with the traditional Burt’s Bees Lip Balm to create a look that provides a touch of colour and plenty of hydration for my lips!
The final product I tried was the new Burt’s Bees Lip Gloss. The pink colour of the lip gloss was definitely more noticeable on my mouth and I loved the touch of sparkle that made my smile look brighter. The gloss doesn’t have the megawatt shine of the lip shine and I found it to be subtle, sophisticated and completely appropriate for both day and night wear.
