Get Lippie Tuesday: Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer

There’s a new hive in town!

Burt's Bees finally has their own store in Manila at Estancia Mall (more deets at the end of the post).

Burt’s Bees finally has their own store in Manila at Estancia Mall (more deets at the end of the post).

It’s a quaint store right beside Beauty Bar and it’s packed with even more natural beauty finds.

If you don't like loading up on chemicals, but can't go full organic, there are a lot of great options here for your face & body.

If you don’t know what to buy yet, you can check out their wall of favorites. It has all their best-sellers!

Whenever I enter a beauty boutique, I like asking about customer favorites. It's an easier way to shop!

They have baby stuff in the store also (nice if you’re a new or breastfeeding mom!) and a timeline of significant milestones for the Burt’s Bees brand (beauty geeks like me will enjoy this!).

This little nook is a nice spot to sit and try the products. I just hope the mall clears out those wires outside—yikes!

Okay…so now that we’re done with that little beauty PSA, let’s get to the point of this post: Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer!

Ooh...so juicy and delicious!

Ooh…so juicy and delicious!

You might think that calling a lippie delicious is weird, but if you think about it, women reportedly eat about four to nine pounds of lipstick in their lifetime. That’s why I like to go with natural lip products whenever I can.

The lighter pink shade is Grapefruit and the darker shade is Apricot.

The lighter pink shade is Grapefruit (I reco this for gals with lighter skin) and the darker shade is Apricot (best for girls with medium to dark skin). Each tube is P395 each.

What surprised me most was how intense the color was. You’ll get a nice, natural shade here for the whole “my lips but better” trend and I like that the shimmer isn’t too overpowering. Just teensy flecks to give you a fuller pout. More plus points for the moisture boost it gives (due to the vitamin E, beeswax, and sunflower oils) and the antioxidant-rich fruit oils that help soften your pout. It also has a tingly, peppermint flavor if you like that (I’m not a big fan).

Uh-oh, you have to be careful when winding though!

Uh-oh, you have to be careful when winding though!

I had to twist the bottom to push the product up for the shoot. Unfortunately, if you try winding it back down, it won’t work! I tried pushing it in (like you do with lip balms), but the product is way too soft and creamy. It’s no biggie since you probably won’t be doing this on a normal day, but just make sure you don’t over-twist when you use it to avoid wastage.

I hate wasting lippies, so I got to work on my swooshes instead. Perfect because I have a shoot coming up and I have to crush and spill lots of makeup.

And because I hate wasting stuff…I practiced my lip swooshes instead. Perfect because I have a shoot coming up and I have to crush and spill lots of makeup.

Anyway…I actually thought of writing this post to honor the memory of Burt of Burt’s Bees. So sad to hear that he’s gone! I got to see a quick video about his life when I hosted an event for the brand and I found him so charming. He’s such a free spirit and he really contributed a lot to the (natural) beauty world!

Farewell, Burt! I hope you're happily buzzing in a heavenly hive ;)
