Two words: Burt’s Bees. This company has single-handedly revolutionized my lip care and beauty routine. Today, I’m here to talk about their tinted lip balm, which I absolutely love and rely on. Here is a detailed review of this absolute drugstore STEAL:

1.) Hydrates and Moisturizes

This is the chapstick component of the tinted lip balm. In only a couple of strokes, the product effectively moistens and softens my lips, giving me the same hydration and moisture as my chapsticks do. It doesn’t feel oily or heavy on my face at all and doesn’t dry out my lips like a lot of lipsticks do.

2.) Natural Lip Tint

For me, I definitely prefer the more natural lip color as opposed to something a little more *out there*. Burts Bees definitely delivers. The lip balm adds a natural tint to my lips giving it a bit of color that compliments my face without being obvious. I have used this product every day since I bought it since it is the only item I’ve stumbled upon so far that is able to give me the perfect hint of color that gives my lips a burst of color, but not overbearing.

3.) Long Lasting + Durable

This lip balm can last me many hours in a typical day. Most of the time, I’ll apply my lip balm in the morning, reapply after lunch and reapply again in the evening. Not to mention, I find this tinted chapstick to be quite durable. In the wind or while drinking water, my lipstick does not smudge and stays intact.

4.) Different Colors for Different Occasions

Although my personal fave is the Rose color, Burts Bees offers 6 amazing colors for all of your different needs. Typically, with a few extra coats, you can achieve a more intense look, with a couple of strokes achieving you a more natural look. Either way, I am confident that this lip balm can fit basically any occasion.

5.) Easy to Apply- No Mirror Necessary!

Another pro to this product is its easy appliance. The lipstick naturally gives you a blotted lip look with its slight tint. You can use this product practically anywhere at any time.

6.) Cruelty-Free + Natural Ingredients

Like any other Burt’s Bees product, this lip balm is cruelty-free, which means it has not been tested on animals. In addition, the chapstick is made of natural shea butter and botanical wax, free of parabens, phthalates, petrolatum, or SLS, according to the Burt’s Bees website.


Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm has definitely become my absolute go-to product for anything on my lips. I absolutely love my lip balm, and I could not imagine life without it. You can find information on this product on the Burt’s Bees website, or you can buy it at your local drugstore!
