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, 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? 😍

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
