Note from Collin:

Do you have a product you love? We definitely have many favorite products and thought it would be FUN to share some of them with you! I personally love product recommendations and I’ve also had a few requests from readers, so I have asked each member of the team to think of products they love (cosmetics, kitchen gadgets etc.) and to write up a post that will be shared here every Tuesday.


Hi there! It’s Michelle – one of the Hip sidekicks!

Several months ago, Collin gave me a gift bag filled with some of her favorite things! In the bottom of the bag was a tiny tube of magic. It took me a few weeks to open it up and give it a try, but once I tried it – I was HOOKED.


And by hooked, I mean that I’ve purchased eight of the fourteen available colors. When I see these Burt’s Bees Lip Shimmer tubes in ANY store, I always stop and make sure there isn’t a new color available that I don’t own. It’s that good!

So here’s why I love these tubes of magic… it goes on like lip balm, coats your lips well, AND feels soothing like ChapStick. It has a slight minty flavor and tingle to it (which I love), and the color tones are just right! You won’t get prison orange or day old lipstick red like some of the other products on the market, but rather the perfect coral, pink and rose shades, and I love that the sheer color stays on for a while too. And of course, since it’s a Burt’s Bees product, it’s 100% natural!


The price on these is around $4.50 – $5 which may seem high, but it’s SO MUCH MORE than ChapStick and well worth the price. I’ve found them at Target and at most major drug stores. You can also grab them at Amazon.com, and not even have to leave home!


Next time you see these, grab one and I promise you won’t be disappointed! Anyone else a huge fan? 😍

    I love mine too. Lipstick and lipgloss all in one! What’s not to love!!

    If you like Burt’s Bees lip balm, try Aveda’s Nourish-Mint line — it’s FANTASTIC. I especially like the Lip Glaze:

    If you like sheer, this is the one:

    There’s a new lipstick version (full coverage color) coming out that I can’t wait to try.

  3. yonawrites

    I agree. I really like them…the shimmer and the minty tingle.

  4. keesh

  5. colorfulsong

  6. Melissa R

    I love these too!

    I have used several tubes of this stuff. Great color and very moisturizing. Says shimmer but I don’t see any. Since learning there is carmine in this will no longer be using it. If only they would make it vegan.

      Would you rather put artificial dyes on your skin made from who knows what from a lab? You gotta pick your battles nothing is perfect. Bugs are bugs they aren’t like eating an animal. It’s the same thing as stepping on bugs that you can’t even see on the ground. You step on ants and other bugs on the ground every day when you drive or walk or drive a car. Are you going to stop driving or leaving the house so you don’t kill Bugs? Lol Bugs are abundant in the world there is no harm in using them. People even eat them in other countries like crickets for protein sources because they are abundant. Bugs don’t use up hundreds of gallons of water or resources like animals do and produce harmful bases into the atmosphere and contaminate the ground and water.

      The carmine used in burt’s bees products is used because they don’t want to use synthetic colorants that are manufactured from non renewable fossil fuels. It says it on their website. People make a huge fuss over everything nowadays. Don’t knock their company they use natural methods they’re a great company. Always have been.

      • Amy

        The only person making a huge fuss is YOU. All she said is she wished the product was vegan and you are acting ridiculous. There’s a difference between purposely harming bugs or other living things and accidentally stepping on or killing them. I’m vegan, so I see where she is coming from and completely agree. Wishing more products were vegan is not trashing a company. In my opinion, more companies should be cruelty free.

        • Laura

          Actually Amy I was just stating facts from their website and not making a big deal about anything I was actually making fun of her comment because it was so ridiculous. You know how you can tell when someone is vegan? They’ll let you know. Bahahahaha

      • Drea

        FYI: A lot of people are allergic to Carmine.

    • Andrea

      It must only be in the tinted balm. Their beeswax lip balm does not have it in there. I love their regular lip balm.

    • Cher H

      Thank you for pointing that out! Is there another brand (vegan) that you love?

      • Maggie

        Shea Moisture’s balms (sold at Target for around $4) are vegan. Aveda’s aren’t (beeswax), but are cruelty free. I *think* Trader Joe’s amazing Head to Toe Balm is ($3.99), and it’s good for lips, cuticles, elbows, etc.

  8. HBee

    I snag these when I need free shipping on a Macy’s order- win- win! My girls love these!

  9. Stephanie Bizoff

    There’s a $2 cash back offer on Burt’s Bees cosmetics on Ibotta. I scanned these at Walmart and they are included!!

    • Renee

      Oh really? It says offer excludes lip balm

  10. Gail

    I love these too. Watermelon is my fav so far!

  11. grr

    Way too much shimmer for me – I hated it! Hubby – who rarely notices anything – actually said it did not look good!

  12. Jen

    By far the BEST. I love the subtle color and coverage. It lasts and is the best, hands down. I have a nervous habit of picking my lip and it helps keep my lips moisturized.

  13. Margaret

    I’m actually wearing the Burt’s Bees tinted lip balm right now and LOVE it. It’s not fussy but helps you look a little more put together. I’ve got to try the shimmer tubes next. Thanks for the rec!

  14. Mama6

    My favorite lip moisturizer and go to everything balm is the Honest Company’s. I swear it is MAGIC 🙂

  15. Nina

    Yes! I love these too! Anything Burt’s Bees is great and this awesome little tube is no exception. Love that their entire line is void of all nasty chemicals that 95% of other cosmetics lines are made up of and that they keep their prices low. Love them. 👍

  16. Meghan

    My 92 year old grandmother loved these! 🙂 Apparently she was hip too!

  17. Chandra

    I am the same way about my BB. I love it so much I a tube of it everywhere! One in my purse, by my bedside and in the living room!!

  18. Pitzersss

    I love these too!!!❤️❤️

  19. moria

    I haven’t ever tried this product. It’s so hard for me to spend that much on a lip balm especially when I have a small stockpile of ones that I got free or really cheap.

  20. Tiggy

    Does anyone know if they contain any sunscreen?

  21. Emilytwinmom

    Now if only someone would tell them to start making gluten free with color! I have the WORST time finding any type of lip product with color in it that is gluten free. I have celiac disease, so it isn’t a choice it’s a necessity. So far I have only found Bite Beauty as something I can walk into a store and purchase, for under $20 a lipstick. Ugh.

    • Laura

      You don’t eat the lipstick so why would it need to be gluten free..? I’ve never understood why people buy into thinking they have to find gluten free cosmetics or products. You’re not eating it

      • Kerry

        Your skin is the largest organ of your body and since it is porous, it absorbs whatever you put on it.

  22. Emma S

    Some of these are on clearance at my local Walmart for $2.50 and then $2 cash back from Ibotta!
