I love pretty much anything from Burt’s Bees. I’ve been a longtime fan of their products such as their lemon cuticle balm and their original minty fresh lip balm. Their product line has expanded so much that they now have items for baby care and skin care. These Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms are essentially the same amazing product I’ve been using for over ten years now, except they each have a slight hint of color to them. I really love these for the summertime because they’re lightweight, protect your lips, and still give a little hint of color. I’ve got swatches of five of them inside,

It’s hard to believe I’ve been using Burt’s Bees for so long. I’ll never forget when my best friend and I were teenagers and she raved to me about how amazing this particular lip balm was because it was so minty. I tried it, became hooked, and often had multiple backup tubes in case I ran out. These do not have that same peppermint smell or feel to them when applied.
Now that these come in a tinted formula, you can add a hint of color to your lips. The color is very subtle, which I like. Tinted lip balm’s are meant to look natural and Burt’s Bees is uber moisturizing on my lips, which is why I wear lip balm to begin with. All of these are 100% natural which have shea butter and botanical waxes in them. Let’s check out the new shades released in the line:
Blush Orchid is a very light, milky pink shade. This one can settle into any fine lines or chapped skin on your lips, so keep that in mind when using it. I really like this color for when I want to make my lips look a little paler, especially if my eye makeup is very dramatic.
Caramel Daisy is a brown-nude shade. It’s subtle and light, and will also give your lips a “paler” appearance, but without the milkiness of “Blush Orchid.” This one is probably better for warmer skin tones whereas “Blush Orchid” is better for cooler, fair skin tones.
Petunia is a pretty flower pink shade. I love this one on my lips. It’s not too pale and gives just the right amount of color.
Rose is, well, rose colored! It has more of a cherry red look to it that is very subtle. I adore this one too because it’s such a classic tinted lip balm shade.
Sweet Violet might be my favorite because it gives off an irresistibly subtle violet-purple shade. I’m a sucker for anything purple.
When I swatch them side-by-side on my wrist, you can really see the differences in tone and color versus on the lips. These are all nice and sheer and great for the “natural beauty.” Overall, I’ve been using Burt’s Bees lip balm for well over ten years now, and I intend to keep using their products. Their lip balm is super soft and makes my lips feel kissable and healthy. The Tinted Lip Balms are a great new option for those looking to also add some sheer color to their lips!
Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms are available at drugstores, health food stores, and mass retailers nationwide. Each tinted lip balm retails for $7.00 USD each and there are nine shades available total. Four of the shades I’ve shown you in this post are brand new to their lineup (Blush Orchid, Caramel Daisy, Petunia and Sweet Violet).
