This May Be Lip Gloss, But It's Not Super Shiny

Jun 18, 2008
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Flavor, Great brand

Cons:Price, Doesn't last long enough, Not shiny enough

The Bottom Line: I'm a little disappointed in this product from such a great company. Although I will finish my lip gloss, I will not buy again.


I recently went into my local Walgreens searching for my Cover Girl Wetslicks lip gloss. I was disappointed when they did not have my flavor I love so I opted for a different brand. I saw the Burt's Bees products display and noticed they had lip gloss. Since I am a fan of the Burt's Bees product lines I decided to give it a try.

Burt's Bees Super Shiny Lip Gloss is in the normal clear tube and contains a plastic seal that you have to take off before using for protection. I always love when products have this because I know that no one else has tried the product on their lips. I don't remember the exact price but I am pretty sure it was in the $6.00 range. Although this seems expensive, all lip gloss products by major cosmetic manufacturers are usually this much if not more.

The tube is 0.5 oz / 14g. The name "Burt's Bees" is on the front of the tube in red letters with a small yellow background. Off to the left of that it says "New". In yellow letters the words "Super Shiny" appear along with a small yellow flower with orange tinted petals next to it. In white lettering it says "Natural Lip Gloss" and the flavor is "Sweet Pink". In black letters over a small yellow background are the words "100% Natural".

The tube claims, "Moisturizers like a balm, with a juicy fruit flavor and a sheer lip gloss."

The ingredients are: Ricinus communis (castor) seed oil, helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed oil, acacia decurrens flower wax, phytosteryl canola glycerides, silica, flavor, prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil, tocopherol, glycine soja (soybean oil)., May contain: mica, iron oxides, titanium dioxide, carmine.

According to the website, www.burtsbees.com, the featured ingredient in this lip gloss is Sweet Almond Oil and the website says the following about it, "Sweet Almond Oil: Prunus amygdalus. Cold pressed from the dried kernels of the almond tree, this medium-weight oil is rich in olein glyceride oleic and linoleic acid, proteins and vitamin D, and is excellent for the skin and nails. It is an outstanding emollient known for its ability to soften and re-condition skin and help balance skin's moisture loss and absorption. It soothes dry skin and irritated areas and is extremely nourishing, particularly when used regularly."

There are four flavors available in this lip gloss which includes: Nectar Nude, Sweet Pink, Pucker Berry, and Zesty Red.

Through the clear tube you are able to see the color of the lip gloss. Since it was the first time purchasing the lip gloss I wasn't sure whether or not to get a darker color because I wasn't sure if it would show up in color, which I didn't want. Being that it is summer and I am more of a lighter colored girl when it comes to make-up I decided to get the pinkish color.

The applicator is slanted on the tube which I like because it makes it easy to apply the product. This way it glides right over my lips effortlessly. The scent of the lip gloss is in fact fruity and actually it smells a little like grapefruit.

One of the first things I noticed what how thick the lip gloss looked in the tube. The reason I did notice this is because of attempting to apply the lip gloss the first time. I thought it was going on my lips but it wasn't. It almost seemed like the lip gloss was too thick to come out of the tube. After squeezing a little more on the tube itself however, the product did come out.

The lip gloss does taste great on my lips unlike some that if you accidentally lick you need to eat or drink something to get the taste out, and I have tried a few like that. It provides some shine but it is not as shiny as others I have tried, particularly my Cover Girl Fruit Spritzers I love. My lips do feel smooth but it does not last as long as others either. I notice a little tint on my lips of color but more so if I wipe some off, I see some pinkish color with a little shimmer on my finger.

I don't think I would buy Burt's Bees Super Shiny Lip Gloss again. Although I do love the flavor, I do not feel that this product has worked any better than others I have tried. I still love my Cover Girl brand and there are probably even more out there to try that are even better! For the price I feel that this could last longer for me and be a little more shinier. Some others may like it though if they are not looking for what I am looking for in a lip gloss. After all, Burt's Bees is a good company that does normally make really good high quality products.
