My Experience with Sierra Bees Tinted Lip Shimmer Balms Variety Pack 4 Pack:
Sierra Bees is an organic brand of Madre Labs. They sell their products online through iherb.com. Organic products usually carry a higher price but Sierra Bees products are very affordable and 100% organic. They have all the good products, like extra virgin olive oil, organic beeswax, shea butter and argan oil.
I purchased the Variety Pack which includes:
• Mauve Lip Shimmer Balm
• Nude Lip Shimmer Balm
• Pink Lip Shimmer Balm
• Red Lip Shimmer Balm
The outer packaging is very colorful and playful. The lip shimmer balm comes in a regular white tube. The plastic cap closes tightly, hence, making it travel-friendly. The different variants carry their respective stickers on the tube and are color-coded. That helps in easily identifying the shade you want to go for.
The texture is extremely smooth and soft. In fact, it is so soft that it easily gets smudged in the tube, so you got to be careful about it.
The lip shimmer glides effortlessly over the lips. One swipe gives a decent layer of a beautiful shimmery/glossy look. Multiple swipes are needed to intensify the color. The lip balm feels very moisturizing on the lips and very comfortable to wear as well. The balm has a glossy sheen which is neither subtle nor over the top. It is just the right amount of glossy for the usual day look.
The shades are slightly tinted and carry shimmer in them. They do not really cover/hide the pigmentation like lipsticks do. They appear very natural and gives a healthy glow to the lips and overall face with a very slight tint.
What I distinctly noticed is the weird smell it has. I dislike the plastic kind of smell which lingers for a bit even after application of the lip shimmer.
See the picture below with the lip shimmers swatched in this order: Red, Mauve, Pink, and Nude. You can see that only the red shade is tinted while the others almost appear transparent with some shimmer.
If you want to pick up a natural and organic product for daily use, then this one is a good buy, especially at this price!
Staying Power: 2 to 3 hours
