I absolutely love this product! It had the consistency and the benefit of a lip balm, but the color of a lipstick. The frosty colors are beautiful. The slimness of the packaging is easy to carry and I love the peppermint scent. The only reason I gave it a 4 star instead of a 5 is because I have a problem with getting the shimmer to crank back down into the tube. So I only twist out a very little at a time. I love the color "Caramel".
I have gone back and forth for a long time, and finally purchased the lip shimmer in Strawberry. I am so glad I did the color is amazing, not too bright, not too light, but the perfect balance of natural pink. Thank you, Burt's Bees!
I've been using the Burt's Bees lip products for 11 years, since I went through chemo for cancer. My already dry lips became chapped. One of my oncology nurses recommended the Burt's Bees lip products and I tried them... and I've used them ever since. One of my daughters and her daughter also use these products (we each have our favorites). I've always liked Rhubarb and Nutmeg, but can no longer find Nutmeg. So I've tried Papaya... and now I can't find that color... HELP!

I lost this lip shimmer and looked EVERYWHERE for it! IT was sold out in every single store. I ordered it from here because I love that it keeps my (super dry) lips moist and also gives it some red color. One of my favorite and necessary products to have with me every day.
This is by far the BEST lip "color" that I have tried. All natural with no gross lipstick taste, yet a hint of color to make my lips pop. And a nice tingle too. I purchased Fig, which is a richer red/brown, but not too dark.
I started using this product many years ago, I found it in a bird specialty store, believe it or not. The store doesn't always carry the color that I like and I was told that it was discontinued. But I found it easily online and have been reordering it every six months or so. I always have a fresh supply and I keep a lip shimmer in every car, coat, pocketbook so I am always prepared. I also keep a fresh one so I can share with someone and spread the word. what a great product!!!
It seems there are so many of us wondering WHY Nutmeg is no longer offered. I am on my last one and now find it impossible to find a Burt's Bees color to replace it. I am now going to have to change brands and will no longer be a customer...WHY would such a decision be made? I do know this is not an uncommon practice in the cosmetic industry, but I thought your company was different.
I have been using the lip shimmers as long as they've been in existence, especially the caramel and peony. These are what I wear everyday instead of lipstick. The last few tubes I've purchased have been mushy, and it is clear that there has been a decrease in the amount of beeswax used in the manufacturing of this product. Cheap! I'm taking my business elsewhere.
I love this product. It goes on smooth and lasts and the peppermint tingle is great--esp in the winter. But PLEASE bring NUTMEG back. That is the perfect color. Just a little color for a natural look. Please!
Thank you for bringing back the 'Cocoa' lip shimmer! Since it's discontinuation, I had been searching for 'that perfect shade', but, without any luck. Like so many other women, I was extremely happy to see it back on the shelves one day and immediately bought the last two tubes! This is the perfect neutral shade and works well day or night, all year round!! The best part about your lip shimmer is knowing that I'm using something that's safe and natural and free of chemicals!! I hope 'Cocoa' is here to stay for a very long time!!!
Love this product and have been using for MANY years!! What happened to the color NUTMEG??? That was my absolute favorite. Can't believe you have not brought that back yet!
i love the color, i bought fig and plum, they both look great on me. those colors have a subtle shimmer. the only problem is that the peppermint oil has a sort of weird feeling, but it's not too bad. u should check for allergies to peppermint oil before buying this
I bought three of these online as I could not find it any stores out in retail. I love Champagne but I REALLY love toffee! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE bring it back. I can try cocoa but it may be too dark. I agree with other customers requesting toffee. I keep one in my desk at school, another in my purse but need more. LOVE IT!!!!!

I am so thrilled that Burt's brought back the cocoa shimmer. It's the most fabulous color and I looked and looked-- it cannot be matched, not even close.... These are perfect lip balms: small, gorgeous to wear, and moist on the lips. Keep making the Cocoa and the Radiance (the white-ish one) and I'll keep buying.
It has just the right amount of color and beautiful shimmer for a glow rather than glitter mess. I was a bit apprehensive due to some horrific views, but newbies should ignore them and go and get some! I read stories of them drying out the lips or too much shimmer. Yes, there is noticeable shimmer but it only adds another dimension to the lippie. I got the lip trio of peony, fig, and champagne. Peony is like a pink bronzy or frosted color while fig is a no shimmer berry color. Champagne is a baby pink frost color but the shimmer is not overwhelming, believe me (I am African American and these colors still look flattering on me). So, if you are still a bit hesitant about the shimmer, try fig or plum which have no shimmer. By the way, the minty feel and smell is a bonus since it will freshen your breath while adding a smoothing feel to the lips.

This by far is my favorite shade! I have tried numerous kinds of lipsticks and shimmer by "other" makeup companies. Nothing compares to this one for me. I get so many compliments when I wear it! And its affordable! I pray it never gets discontinued. Thank you Burts Bees!!
when I saw that Burt's brought back my all time favorite lip shimmer EVER! Cocoa goes so well with nearly everything, looks natural with just the right amount of color, and makes my lips feel great. THANKS, Burt's!!
This is a very good lip shimmer, beautiful colors (so far I tried 3 of them), feels so good when you put it on your lips on hot summer day, it makes them feel cool. However.... with winter coming... I think I will switch to tinted lip balm, because of this "cooling" effect ; )
With these lip shimmers are the mint flavor / feeling they put into these tubes. It jacks up the flavor of the food I eat. Plus, the last thing I need while prego is to have eucalyptus / mint on my mouth during the winter time. Other than that. The Shimmers are great. My personal favorite is the fig color. I wish they'd rather copy a fig (or whatever color) flavor they had or at least leave it alone for purity.

I received some of these as a gift and love them. They keep my lips smooth and the shimmer is just right to keep my lips looking great. A tiny bit goes a long way.

I don't wear makeup a lot but I do like my lips to feel fresh and moisturized- and this product is absolutely perfect! It adds color without being too obvious, and makes your lips tingle! It's wonderful.
