    I started using this about 4 years ago and cannot be without it. The color provides a natural gloss while having the benefit of a soothing chap stick as well. It lasts longer than most lip glosses so doesn't require constant reapplication. Fits nicely in pocket or wallet. Smells great!

    In general, I like this stuff; the shimmer is fine, the rhubarb color is pretty, if just a little bit cool for me (neutral-toned very fair skin, blue eyes, cool light brown hair--it would probably be perfect on warm-toned medium/dark skin); the color intensity is right for my everyday look, which is a classic polished look (black lashes, dark eyeliner, pink cheeks, defined lips), not the natural look--this color is not for a fair-skinned girl going nearly-barefaced. That said: While the smell/flavor is nice, peppermint oil is very drying, and I do find that the gloss gets clumpy around the edges; reapplications do not go on smoothly, you must take the gloss off and reapply to get the original look, which further dries your lips. This is a product that I would use occasionally, but not the one that goes with me all the time. CG Lipslicks in Daring is a similar color, a little deeper, a little warmer, a little sheerer, with a much-preferable texture, and that's what I recommend. Bottom line: Not one for the trash, but I won't be buying it again.

      Comments about Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer, Rhubarb, .1 oz:

      I have lots of allergies and lipstick always makes my lips peel..I'm talking I put lipstick on and my entire lip area the skin will peel off...so I don't wear lipstick that much anymore....

      But this Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer, gives my lips color and feels great and doesn't make my lips peel....so I can use it every day if I want...

      Great product! Love it!!!

            I must second the reviewer who recommended CG in Daring over this product. I used BB for years but never knew the peppermint oil was chapping my lips. Although BB smells great, my lips end up with chunks of stained skin on them. Ew. Try the CG product - much better!!

                  Comments about Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer, Rhubarb, .1 oz:

                  I'm a huge fan of Burt's Bees, so I obviously really love the lip-balm-y part of this tinted lip balm. The applicator is nice and narrow, allowing for even application. The color is just a shade darker than my natural lip color (I have very pigmented lips) so I just dab it on and rub it in if I want a slightly more dramatic look. I wouldn't describe it as shimmery, it's more dewy/metallic looking. But it's uses are not limited to being a tinted lip balm! It's great as an inexpensive equivalent to cheek stains! Stains are very "in" right now, especially Stila's, but this is a super inexpensive equivalent. I just dot on, rub it in, and voila! Perfectly natural cheek color that matches my lips exactly, just like a good blush is supposed to! It lasts forever, doesn't feel sticky on my cheeks, and is really, really cheap! (Note: The only reason I rated this as three stars was because three stars are described on this website as "the product works just fine", and I thought this sounded more appropriate to the product than four stars, aka "close to perfect")
