Burt's Bees: Lip Shimmer - Rhubarb

"Want your lips to speak volumes? Give them a smooch of luminescent color with our luscious Lip Shimmers. Shea Butter and antioxidant-rich Fruit Oils moisturize, nourish and soften lips naturally and lovingly. Choose our Radiance Lip Shimmer for a sheer glow or try one of our other beautiful shades. Now in three fresh and flattering new colors: Cherry, Plum and Strawberry!"

I really love this! It's my first and only Burt's Bees product that I've used and I can already see why this brand is a cult favourite. It's a gorgeous colour that you can build for a lighter or stronger shade and the peppermint makes my lips feel nice and plump. If it weren't for the size and price I would purchase it again as I really like it but it's a bit too much dinero for me to hand over for a teensy little stick, although its not too bad. Maybe I'm just cheap? However, it has left me eager to try other shades in the range and very interested in other Burt's products!

The sweet and sour...

  • Lovely rhubarb shade that you can build.
  • Long lasting, makes my lips feel plump and pouty.
  • Has a little shimmer, great for summer.
  • Really nice, effective product in lots of colours. 12/13 of them!

Let me know your thoughts! What's your fave Burt's Bees product?


  1. I love all the Burts Bees stuff. It's a little pricey for what it is, but I don't mind droping $5 or $6 for a quality product that works.


  2. Absolutely! It definitely does work, what are some of your other Burt's Bees favourites?

  3. I love their plain lip balms and they make a line of bath products for moms and babies (mama bee and baby bee) that are just amazing!

  4. I will definitely have to try their lip balms, I'm a lip balm addict :)

  5. I've never tried any of the Burts Bees range because.. well, I have nice lips and don't feel the need to buy balms and things like that for them but I love coloured glosses so I might have to see about giving this a crack.

    Is it flavoured, or is that just the name of the colour?

  6. Rhubarb is just the name/colour, although it does taste a little minty because of the peppermint. If you do end up trying it or any other Burt's product let me know what you think of it. Thanks for reading!

    looks lovely i think if it worked I would be happy to pay that money. Although I dont overly love the taste of honey so im glad it doesnt have that flavour :)

    1. It is worth it, after I use it up I'm really wanting to try some of the other flavours too!
