I was trying to order some new products from Burt’s Bees when I remembered that I still have an almost brand new Rasin Lip Shimmer in my drawer which was only used once.
Unfortunately, even though I’m very fond of Burt’s Bees products, I cannot sayÂ the sameÂ for their lip shimmers.Â Like their original lip balm, the lip shimmers areÂ made from natural ingredients like vitamin E, coconutÂ plus sunflower oils to moisturize and highlightÂ theÂ lips, andÂ actually comeÂ in eleven yummy shades.
I was really excited to try it at first but upon application, I found it rather different from my expectations.Â
Even though itÂ gave me the same tingle andÂ my lips did feel somewhatÂ moisturized, but somehow it didn’t look alright.Â In fact, I thought it made my lips looked dry.Â I had to put on additional lip balm to correct the drying look.Â I also realised that the dark earthlyÂ shade of RaisinÂ doesn’t work well and I’m probably better off with the lighter shades.
In fact, aÂ colleague who bought one of their lip shimmers recently also had the same conclusion as me. She didn’t like it as well even though she loves Burt’s Bees lip balms.
So unlike customers who said they plan to buy all eleven shades, I’m definitely going to give all the rest a miss, even though each will only cost me S$8.50.
