Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Honeysuckle

I have walked by this stuff in the store hundreds of times, unwilling to shell out the $7 for some lip balm.  But yesterday, I broke down.  And I am so glad I did. After my dogs fervently and completely chewed up my last two lip smackers (why they do this, I have no idea), I was in need of a replacement.

I went for the lightest color, Honeysuckle.  I have been overdoing it on the berry colors for fall.  Who knew I was about to discover the nude “lipstick” I have been hunting for all summer?  Other than NARS Cosmetics Satin Lipstick – Honolulu Honey, I hadn’t found anything.  To my amazement, Honeysuckle was the perfect, semi-sheer nude lip.  It doesn’t require a liner (or a mirror) and it is fantastically hydrating.

I was a little irritated with the packaging… why do we need a big cardboard tube for your basic lip balm dispenser.  But after all that tugging and tearing, I unvieled a little treasure in a brown tube.  The fragrance is floral but very subtle. Now, that was a $7 well-spent.
