Burt’s Bees Super Glossy Natural Lip Shine Nectar Nude
Today, I am going to review a gloss by Burt’s Bees. I had read about this brand here on IMBB, only when somebody mentioned that its lip balms were being used by actresses as well, so I was curious to try this. When my close buddy was returning from US, I asked her to get me some stuff of Burts Bees though I did not ask for a lip gloss as I am completely a lipstick girl. Nevertheless, she got 2 glosses for me and I shall be reviewing one of them today.
Product Being Reviewed:
Burt’s Bees Natural Lip Shine Nectar Nude.
6.99$ for 14 gms. It comes in the usual gloss tube with a slant applicator. The slant applicator is better than a rounded one as it helps to go along the contours of the lips easily.
Moisturises like a balm with a juicy fruit flavour and a sheer colour gloss.

My Take on Burt’s Bees Super Glossy Natural Lip Shine Nectar Nude:
It is a beige-coloured gloss with subtle shimmers in it, the consistency is on the thicker side. More than a gloss, it is like a lip balm as more than shine, it provides moisturisation to the lips, so in that sense, it is true to its claims. The fragrance of the gloss is citrusy and fruity, nothing to be conscious or bothered of, it is quite sweet smelling. Also, the taste is sweet :D, not that I ate it specifically, but by chance, got to taste it.
It spreads evenly on the lips and looks like a transparent lip balm with subtle shimmery particles. The staying power of the gloss is around 2-3 hours. The best part of this gloss is that it does not feel heavy on the lips. In fact, you would not even feel as if something has been put on the lips. Hadn’t it been for the shimmers, it was ideal for college wear and a day-purpose lip balm. Nonetheless, the gloss is really good and moisturising.
Summarising, the pros and cons.
Pros of Burt’s Bees Super Glossy Natural Lip Shine Nectar Nude:
- Not tested on animals.
- Moisturises the lips nicely.
- Feels feather light on the lips.
- Nice citrusy fragrance and taste 😛
Cons of Burt’s Bees Super Glossy Natural Lip Shine Nectar Nude:
- The shimmer particles make it unsuitable for everyday wear, though they are not overpowering, but still during the day time, you don’t like your lips to shine with the rays of sun.
- Nonavailability in India is definitely an issue.
Will I Repurchase Burt’s Bees Super Glossy Natural Lip Shine Nectar Nude:
Well, no, I would like a lip gloss to work as a lip gloss only, for balms, I have different options available. Also, I am not very fond of glosses.
