Burt’s Bees Lip Gloss in Sunny Day Review & Swatches

By Sheila Arkee

There I was on an innocent trip to CVS to pick up a case of water when I happened upon the most fascinating display I’ve seen in a while.

To my delight and surprise, I spied a selection of Burt’s Bees glosses that are so new they’re not even listed on the Burt’s Bees website. There were two types of glosses in the display: squeeze tube glosses, and doe foot applicators priced at around $8.99 with an ever so handy stack of coupons nearby for $1.50 off of the purchase.  A longtime fan of Burt’s Bees balms, there was no way for me to say no to Sunny Day, which is a sheer pinky gold lip gloss.

The color I chose reminds me of MAC’s Nymphette Lip Glass, which is one of my all-time favorite colors.

The gloss isn’t bad, but it’s definitely not the greatest I’ve ever used.  The gloss isn’t sticky, the color is pretty, but my main issue lies with the durability – I find that it fades after just a short amount of time on my lips. Let’s face it, no gloss is going to last forever, but this one just feels like I’m being shortchanged in relation to other glosses I love.

I wish I could really love this gloss, but I can’t say that I’m entirely thrilled. The Burt’s Bees balms far outweigh the quality of the glosses, in my opinion.However, if you are completely averse to heavy glosses, this may be for you. And in comparison with another natural brand, I have to say the glosses from Painted Earth are fantastic, and they are all natural as well.

You can find Burt’s Bees products at your local mass market retailer and hopefully online soon!

    I knew they made tinted balms, but never saw the lip glosses. Its a shame it fades so quickly as it looks gorg on you!

    It really is a shame!

    I bought this today from CVS also. It’s a pretty color in the tube however quite sheer on the lips. May have to try another color. Perhaps a red. =( Didn’t see any coupons though.

    I too purchased one of these with a coupon and it was not what I expected. I like everything about it except that it has no color payoff. I am not sure how it can look so bright fuschia in the tube and so clear on the lips. Bummer…even with the coupon!

    It is so disappointing that these are not that great!

    My friend had one of these, and when she opened the tube (horizontally), when the wand was close enough to it, the product on the wand was pulled towards the tube almost magnetically. Weird stuff!

    That is totally weird, Ella! Burt’s Bees missed the mark on this one -it’s good to know I”m not alone in this!
