Ingredients lip balm

My Experience with Burt’s Bees Zinnia Tinted Lip Balm:

Packaging: The packaging of this lip balm is definitely cute and practical. The tube in which the lip balm is placed is a dark chocolate brown tube, with the cap, which is color coded to the lip balm inside. The balm comes in a usual twist-up mechanism container as most lip balms.

The cap shuts with a secure click sound which is a big yay for a product that you want to throw in your purse on the go. To perk things up, Burt’s Bees has packed this lip balm in a nice cardboard paper packing which has cute images and all details of the product. A+ for the packaging.

Color and Pigmentation:  The color payoff is fairly sheer, but you can still get a nice hint of color. “Zinnia” is a light peach-y shade with slight pink undertones. It did not show up really well on my lips, but still gave them a fair flush of an MLBB tint. I think they swatch considerably less pigmented than they actually appear on lips.

Texture: This is lightly hydrating with a thin, balmy consistency that wears comfortably on lips. It feels very lightweight, smooth and slick as you’re applying and feels nice on the lips at first. The texture is not too creamy to slide off the lips, but just perfect! This balm applies very smoothly and I’d say the texture is very close to Maybelline Baby Lips formula but a bit thinner and they have a slight sheen finish.

Smell: The smell of this lip balm is sweet and fruity. The flavor is pretty light and subtle yet tastes sweet which I appreciate as I hate lip balms that smell and taste horrible.

Longevity: I got about 4-5 hours of moisture from this baby as it’s really hydrating on the lips. The moisture factor is pretty nice here, so if you have super dry lips, it might be an ideal pick for you if you’re depending on them for long-term hydration and moisture retention.

IMBB Rating:

Would I Recommend/Repurchase Burt’s Bees Zinnia Tinted Lip Balm?
I tend to reapply lip balm throughout the day because I have dry lips and also because I am kind of lazy at reapplying my lipstick once it wears off. So, I like to keep a tinted balm handy to give my lips a little hydration as well as color which is one reason these lip balms can come in handy. If you are someone like me, you’ll definitely enjoy this cute lil’ lip balm. Go get it ladies, at such an affordable price, a cute lip balm won’t hurt!
