Burts Bees Lip Shimmer - Watermelon

My lips are incredibly easily annoyed - if the weather is too dry, too cold, too hot, too anything really, then my lips become dry n chapped in no time. It means I rarely go to bed without slathering them in Vaseline and always have a lip balm or 2 in my bag just in case

Although I've tried lots of different brands I generally come back to the same ones that I've found particularly reliable; Carmex, Vaseline and Burts Bees to name a few... So when I was doing a little online shopping last month I ordered one of the Burts Bees Lip Shimmers in Watermelon

The shape of this was a bit of a surprise cos it's so much thinner than the regular BBs lip balms that I own (i's almost pencil thin) Also, I panicked a little when I saw the colour - it's so much darker and more purple-y than I'd expected but thankfully it just gives a really lovely translucent glow with a hint of colour when it's on the lips
The only thing that left me slightly disappointed was the smell - I'd expected it to be a deliciously fruity watermelon scent (what with it being called watermelon n all) but it actually smells of peppermint. Not exactly a bad thing but kinda disappointing if it isn't what you're expecting, you know?

As for the balm itself it's smooth, not too greasy and definitely not sticky so I thoroughly enjoy using it! Oh and I love the skinny tube as it's so easy to apply without worrying about colouring outside the lines :)

I love this product but I'll admit that I was shocked at how little it is too! I love the scent and the purple colour is so subtle and nice :D x

I have Burts Bees lip shimmer in Champagne and I'm absolutely in love with it. I prefer it to every lipgloss I own.
A nice, subtle pink shimmer. Love love love.

Sounds lovely, I keep meaning to try this. I would have thought it would be fruity scented not peppermint though, how strange! xxx

I have a hard to please pout too which means always being prepared. I've just counted 5 balms in my bag... perhaps a little overkill?
I've heard good things about Burt's Bees so I'm tempted to give this a go... thanks!

Kattatonic Fierceology that really sucks :( though I cant help being a teensy bit jealous cos I dont think it's ever been warm enough in Belfast for that to happen!

Hazel I definitely couldn't judge cos I'm the same! For some reason I actually had 3 different types of Vaseline in my bag...
