These $7 Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms Are The Bee’s Knees

Published in: Drugstore Beauty Finds, Makeup, Product Reviews

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Pink Blossom on lips

Burt sure keeps his bees busy! Their latest creation, a concoction of 100% natural ingredients, gives a soothing sheer tint to lips.


Available in six sheer shades ranging from pink to red to neutral, these Tinted Lip Balms ($7 each) moisturize and nourish lips with soft flower waxes, shea butter and added vitamin E.

What the Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balms DON’T contain: phthalates, parabens and sodium lauryl sulfate

The ones I’ve been wearing lately are peachy Tiger Lily and Pink Blossom. Both feel smooth, light and non-sticky on my lips, and I dig their light, sweet raspberry flavor and scent.

Like all of Burt’s products, the Tinted Lip Balms proudly display (well, they could) the official Tabs Stamp of Approval, since they’re cruelty-free and were developed without being tested on animals.

PRICE: $7 each
AVAILABILITY: At drugstores, grocery stores and also online

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Ah this looks cute πŸ™‚ I shall hunt for them the next time I’m near a Boot’s Pharmacy.

    TGIF Karen and have a wonderful weekend. Tell Tabs I said hi and hope he’s not too busy. Kitty Models need rest too!

      I’ll pass along the message. πŸ˜‰ I think he has a few shoots this weekend (a kitty model’s job is never done!), but I’ll make sure he gets some downtime in.

  2. Tracy says:

    These look great! I hope they are up here.
    Happy Friday Karen and Tabs!

    Those look great. I am definitely going to grab Tiger Lily because I love the name and the color. Would be great for days when I’m too lazy to slap on the lipstick.

    How do these compare to Burt’s Bees’ Lip Shimmers?

  5. Myr says:

    The cool cardboard packaging suckered me into buying Pink Blossom. Man, they’re expensive! The color shows up nicely on my lips. It doesn’t last long, though. πŸ™
    It reminds me of the Love’s SoftKiss tinted lip balm I used to have forever ago. Except that it was a little more pink than fuschia and was more pigmented.

  6. natalie says:

    my lips dry out like crazy and i just bought the new gaga lipstick, what should i wear beneath?

    sometimes even balms dry my lips

    Love, love, love these! I’ll be keeping my eyes out for them. Happy Friday Karen & Tabs!

    • Karen says:

      Happy Friday, Alka! What are you up to this weekend?

      • Alka says:

        The kiddos are off to see the grandparents this weekend so Hubs and I are looking forward to a nice, quiet weekend. I’m hoping it involves sipping ritas on the patio with some fresh shrimp and pineapple on the BBQ. πŸ˜€ How about you? Any big plans?

        • Karen says:

          That sounds wonderfully relaxing, and I’m sure the kids will be happy to get some time in with their grandparents too!

          I have to do a LOT of un-fun stuff that needs to get done: taxes, cleaning and working out. Blah!

  9. Nicki says:

    I got this in Red Dahlia last week. It’s really sheer but I like it. πŸ™‚

    These look really interesting. I havent seen these yet. That peach one looks yummy, lol!! Have a great weekennd, Karen! It’s supposed to be raining/snowing this weekend and i am totally over this weather! Palmdale is so lame.

  15. Kim says:

    I use their regular lip balm and it works well (peppermint flavor and a little tingle). The tinted versions are cute, though. πŸ™‚

    Happy Friday! I hope you have a good weekend. πŸ™‚

  16. Raven says:

    This post made me so happy, I had to bust out some “Honey Bee” by Zee Avi. She’s got a Norah Jones-y kinda sound, and I’m sure she would love these tinted lip balms as much as I do. Can’t wait to see em on shelves up here in Canada!

  17. S says:

    How do these compare to the regular Burt’s Bees lip balm tubes?

  18. Tiffany says:


    I have one of the darker shades… rose maybe? I like it, but nothing beats the pomegranate balm for me!

    • Karen says:

      TGIF, homie!!! πŸ˜€ Your weekend started yesterday, right? How goes it?!

      • Tiffany says:

        Yes ma’am. So far so good! Last night we had dinner at my fave place. Hubby was off today for a dr appt, so I tidyed up this morning, then we hit up kroger and target (hopefully the last batch of baby stuff!). What are you up to? Anything fun planned tonight?

        • Karen says:

          Oh nice. A yummy dinner is always a good way to kick things off. πŸ™‚

          And yay, good for you for being so prepared. Is the baby’s room all ready, too?

          As for me… it looks like this weekend is gonna be all about getting shiz done. Taxes, cleaning and doing more research on a possible trip to Italy later this spring!

          • Tiffany says:

            Oooh I love trip planning! Tripadvisor is my ho! Italy would be so so awesome!!!

            Baby doesn’t have her own room, unfortunately, but all her stuff is put together and ready to go!

          • Karen says:

            Oh, I haven’t hopped on that site yet. I’ve been reading the Rick Steve’s Italy book and asking random question on twitter, but that’s the extent of my planning so far, LOL!

            Wait… I didn’t know you were having a girl! CONGRATS! πŸ˜€

          • Tiffany says:

            Girl that site is awesome for ratings and reviews of hotels and restaurants, and for lists of things to do/see. There are also forums that can be helpful. Love it.

            Oh yeah, my poor husband is gonna be outnumbered!

  19. Hazel says:

    ooh thanks for this! i just saw these yesterday at cvs in newark but they only had 3 tubes left > <

    I’m obsessed with these. I just got the Hyacinth one. My lips are hotter than Timothy Olyphant right now. Maybe not quite.

  22. Maria says:

    I have one in the shade rose and i like how it makes my lips look like they have life.

  23. Fefe says:

    I tried Burt’s Bees before and it really dried my lips out. Only Chapstick brand and I get along for some reason. I may try these out though because I love tinted chapstick! Makes me happy.

  24. Trish says:

    I bought one of these at rite aid thinking well…this might be awesome but $7 seems a lot for a drugstore lipbalm but OMG! soooooo moisturizing! Karen i love this product!

  25. Karen says:

    I have this in Rose and I love it. Although every drugstore I go to, they are sold out, so I can’t try other shades.

  26. Nika says:

    Awesome! I don’t think we have these in the Philippines yet. So far, I’ve been using the one with pomegranate oil and it’s a tad tinted as well. Can’t wait to try these out! πŸ™‚

    I love Burt’s Bees! Too bad they are very expensive over here, but when my hunnybuns goes over to the US they are on his shopping list πŸ˜‰

  28. Mandy says:

    I like how the Pink Blossom looks… do you have a picture of how TIger Lily looks on your lips or would you say it’s so sheer it doesn’t deposit any sort of color? I think this might be the first step of easing my way into orange lip colors…

  29. Amanda says:

    I can’t wait to find these in my neck of the woods. based on the product I’ve seen online I really want to try honeysuckle!

  30. Phyrra says:

    I like the peach shade πŸ™‚

  31. Dancerwendy says:

    These are really good! I have the darker berry shade called Red Dahlia, and it’s so pretty and moisturizing, wore it today in fact.. I got mine at a Walgreens, but I haven’t seen many places carrying these, which is too bad. Highly recommended!

  32. Nina says:

    I think I’ll get the peach shade for a natural look in my NC42 skin. If it’s available in Aus. Btw, do you think this lipbalm is boyfriend friendly?
