A common question I’m asked is what I’m wearing on my lips. The answer? It’s Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer…..ON REPEAT. The truth is, I probably have about 10 of these roaming around between my makeup bag, handbag, car, vanity, bathroom, gym bag, and coat pocket… and it’s all I’ve been wearing!
I love this product for a few reasons. The first is that it actually makes my lips feel great. It has Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Beeswax, and Sunflower oil. These ingredients truly keep my lips soft and moisturized so I’m never dealing with dry, flakey, or cracked lips.
I also love the colors! I can get a little punch on my lips, but there is a hint of translucent, so it can be punchy but not too heavy. If I want to look the most natural (remember this is Nikki’s version of natural which is still with color…) I like to use the cherry color. I would throw this on at any point even if I don’t have makeup on, and it helps me not look dead! (Even to the gym….!) I also love the colors Rhubarb, Raisin, and Fig. Those are my four go-to’s. They are similar, but have a slight difference in tones. If you are to look at the whole color range (14 shades to choose from) they have basically every color covered. They have a lot of great nudes and pinks as well, I just don’t feel my best in nudes!! Some of the colors have a little bit more shimmer to them, but when they call them shimmer it’s not what you think of like in the early 2000’s when all chapsticks literally had glitter in them…..at least mine did and I LOVED every minute of it….(Lip Smackers!!)
I always love to give this advice to my friends that are a little more “color hesitant”- even if you have the darkest color lip color and you are scared, all you have to do is put it in the center of your lips, and then blend and press it into your lips with your finger, and you will get the most amazing stained and natural looking lip. So don’t be scared, and try it!!
The other cool news is that these are only $5.00, so you can afford to grab a few to try. Or spread them throughout your life like I do!!
At the end of the story, I love that I am getting color on my lips, and also treating them at the same time. Definitely a Nikki LOVE and happy to share with you!
