The official Liptember colour for 2011 is Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in the shade Hibiscus. Despite being a huge fan of the Burt’s Bees products (and brand in general) I’d never used one of their tinted lip balms before, so happily I am loving the shade and lip balm so it’s no struggle at all for me to be wearing this on my lips every day this month. The balm looks like a berry pink shade in the tube, but on the lips it translates to a beautiful peach-pink colour.
The product applies very smoothly and feels lovely and moisturising on the lips. The wear is pretty much on par with most lip balms, with it lasting for around 2 hours or so before re-application is needed. Not only is this tinted lip balm lovely to wear, if you purchase a tube in the month of September, proceeds will go towards Liptember fundraising! (Psst… feel free to hop over to my Liptember profile and sponsor me if you’re feeling generous!) The Burt’s Bees Tinted Lipbalm in Hibiscus retails for $14.95 AUD and can be purchased from David Jones and MYER stores nation wide. (note: I was sent this product as a part of Liptember and for consideration for review)
