Mom-Finds: Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer

Last Friday of the month:  Mom-Finds and Raves

After a year of blogging, I just realized I never did a beauty-related post.  And now that I think about it, I was never really into the hair and make-up stuff.  Ever since I started wearing (a little) make-up after college, I've kept my beauty regimen very basic, and the cosmetics at the bare minimum.

During my working years in the 90s, I only had a lipstick craze where I experimented with an assortment of shades from my staple of Revlon ColorStay, Watercolors, Body Shop and MAC matte lipsticks in bold colors among others. Eventually, trends shifted to the natural, barely-there make-up look, so I got into sheer, tinted lip gloss and lip stains. And I think it was three or four years ago that I stumbled upon this fantastic product at popular cosmetics store Beauty Bar. This is not something new but it's worth sharing to all you beautiful women out there.

Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer is my 'BFF' among my limited stash of beauty products. I just got to have my supply of Watermelon lip shimmer. I always pucker up with this smooth moisturizing balm with just the right tinge of pink to brighten up my somewhat sallow skin tone.

I'm very basic when it comes to beautifying. Every time I leave the house, I just lightly apply face powder, curl my lashes, and finally, glide on my lip gloss. These are my top 3 must-haves in my vanity kit, along with a hand sanitizer, pack of facial tissue and cologne of the moment.

Every application of Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer will leave a fresh minty feeling on your lips. Wear it alone or as a base for your favorite lipstick.  It's also a perfect top coat for luscious kissable lips anytime of the day.  This fabulous lip balm also repairs chapped lips while it beautifies.

Burt's Bees is famous for it's lip balms which contain natural ingredients like beeswax, coconut and sunflower oils, and vitamin E to nourish your lips.
"A kiss of color and pearlised shine add a hint of glamour to our world famous lip balm. Condition, smooth and highlight your lips with our wonderful selection of seven shimmering shades. Luminescent earth pigments add a hint of colour to our natural beeswax lip balm to give your lips the lift they need. 
Apply shimmer to lips as often as needed or desired. It's good for you. Eat it off. Kiss it off. Talk it off. Re-apply." - Burt's Bees
Choose from a range of colors to suit your every mood -- Raisin, Fig, and Rhubarb are also popular. It comes in a convenient slim tube that easily slides in your pocket or in the tiniest purse.

This Watermelon Lip Shimmer is my absolute favorite and I think I'm on my fifth tube. I already have a spare on my vanity, and another shade in Fig. Several Christmases ago I also gave some away as gifts, so consider this for your girl friends too and I'm sure they'll thank you for it.  Try this on and let me know what you think! :)

I'd love to know your thoughts on this post.
