I didn’t care for this gloss. The color is nice and the texture. But once it’s on, it feels sticky.
Didn’t resolve my chapped or dry lips!
This is an okay lip gloss, but when my lips are chapped and dry I am looking for something to resolve the issue. I tried to use this product several times for that and it did not work.
Thick & a little sticky – but stays on longer than most other glosses
Normally I do a nude lip so this shade is perfect for my fair coloring. I have pale mauve lips and this appears almost like a clear gloss. I love that it has a doe foot applicator as opposed to a messy brush applicator that always ends up splaying. This is thicker than other glosses I use and that’s a good thing as my other glosses tend to leak out around the threads of the container and that can get messy. The only thing I don’t like about the Burt’s Bees is the pearlized glitter is too chunky, it needs to be more finely crushed.
Sticky, Not Long-Lasting
I got this for the woman in my life, and she’s not very fond of it. The color’s nice (I think, at least), but she says the product itself is very sticky when it comes out of the container. [Honestly, poking around in it, the tube almost looks dried out; it’s possible we got a bad batch.] The applicator is oddly shaped compared to her other glosses, as well. Finally, she reports that it doesn’t seem to last long, as she felt the need to apply it several times over one evening out.
I did not like this Burt’s Bees Lip Gloss. After applying it, my lips felt strange and a bit sticky. I don’t normally wear lip gloss so maybe this is normal. I do like that it didn’t really add much color to my lips but leaves them a little big glossy. The applicator tip has a slanted end so it can only be applied one way to your lips. I also do not care for the scent which seems to be a bit woodsy smelling to me. The lip gloss does not last very long and feels heavy. For those reasons I would not purchase this on my own.
long lasting color
I liked that this was true to the color that it was in the tube. Many times, the color looks different once placed on your lips, but this was a nice, gentle color that lasted a long time. The formula was such that my lips didn’t feel heavy or greasy, and they didn’t dry out. Worth the price to me!
Pretty color, Not overly pearlized
This product was given to me for my review.It is always a gamble when I order a lipstick or gloss online, sight unseen. I’m often disappointed in these particular purchases. Burt’s Bees Ocean Sunrise Lip Gloss turned out to be a good choice, though. The color is a natural, sheer pink, and the shine is more pearl luster than metallic in appearance like some other pearlized lip products. For a middle aged woman not wanting to relive the seventies, it is a good thing. The gloss is sheer enough to wear over lipstick, but has enough color that it stands alone. The ingredients, the natural oils, do seem to leave one’s lips soft even after the gloss has worn off. Like any gloss, though, it is a bit tacky, so if you’re planning on a lot of kissing, wear one of Burt’s Bee’s lip balms or lip shimmers likeBurt’s Bees Lip Shimmer, Rhubarb, .09-Ounce Tubes (Pack of 4), (one of my favorites). The shimmers are great to soften lips, even here in West Texas. However, the gloss is milder in ingredients and does not seem to contain peppermint like the shimmer, and is good for someone who is sensitive to peppermint.
Not a good lip gloss
I loveBurt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm–so much that I have one tube in each room of my house and at least one in every handbag. I’m pretty much addicted to the stuff. I’d never tried any Burt’s Bees product besides the lip balm before, so I jumped at the chance to try this lip gloss. Sadly, it doesn’t come close to the quality of the lip balm.The gloss is a bit sticky–it doesn’t leave my lips feeling smooth but rather stuck together. It also goes on very thin–in order to have the color show up (a color I really like, by the way), you have to put several coats on. And it doesn’t stay on very long–within 30 minutes, I felt like I needed to reapply, and my lips were drier than they were when I first put the gloss on.I do like the color, and the tube is cute, but I can safely say that I will not be buying Burt’s Bees Lip Gloss … I’ll just stick to the lip balm!
more like lip paint
I am a lip gloss wearer, never lipstick or stain, and I have lots of glosses in a couple of brands. I do generally love Burts Bees and the whole family uses their lip balms and I was excited to try this gloss. The color is pretty, it’s really light but makes a very nice “nude lip”, great for me since I like to put my makeup effort into my eyes instead of my lips. However that is the only thing I like about it. The applicator is ok, standard applicator. I think the tube might be plastic instead of glass, which has me worrying about the tube breaking in my purse.The biggest problem is with the actual gloss. It is creamy and thick, just the perfect texture for getting stuck in every natural little line on my lips, and when it dries it gets even worse, making my lips look almost wrinkly. And then, after an hour, it is gone, even without a sip of water or anything. My favorite department store gloss is shiny and beautiful, lasts for hours, and only costs two bucks more than this Burts Bees gloss.
Not My Favorite
I would not purchase this. I don’t like the color or the texture much. It was difficult to get a good amount out with the applicator. I’m wondering how much is going to be wasted because I won’t be able to get it out. While I appreciate the all natural ingredients and understand that does affect the texture of this item, I will not be buying it. I only wear lipgloss on occasion, so for me, I don’t worry about it being all natural. If I wore it everyday, that might be a concern. Plus this is pricey! I will stick with my cheaper NYC lipgloss from Walmart.
Great lip gloss, not so great applicator
I’ve always wanted to try Burt’s Bees products, so I was happy when I got the opportunity to review this lip gloss. The package of the gloss is a typical lip gloss package, and the lip gloss is a pleasant color on the outside and inside of the container. The lip gloss itself is excellent. The product I reviewed is in a pleasant shade called Autumn Haze, and complimented my skin tone. The lip gloss goes on smoothly, and feels great on my lips.My only issue with this lip gloss is the applicator. The applicator that applies the lip gloss directly to your lips isn’t your usual applicator shape. I am used to applicators that are round. This applicator is slanted-perhaps the package designer thought that an applicator shaped this way would be easier to use to apply lip gloss to your lips. I found that I always had to turn the applicator handle, so that the slanted side pointed to my lips. I tend to prefer applicators that you can use from any side, that you don’t have to turn to put on.Otherwise this lip gloss is excellent. I would rate this lip gloss 4.5 stars if I could, but I cannot with Amazon.com’s rating system. I would buy this lip gloss if Burt’s Bees changed the applicator in future lip gloss packages.
Incredibly Over-Priced, Hardly Any Color…
I love lip gloss…I wear it every day. Personally, I’m a Bonnie Bell kinda gal, but I saw this and thought it would be a nice ‘adult’ alternative to my beloved Lip Smackers. It’s not. Being that this is a Burt’s Bee’s product, I was surprised to be so disappointed with this. I have a lot of Burt’s Bees products that I really like, but this gloss is certainly not one of them.It goes on very thick and heavy, but you need about 2-3 dips of the brush to really get your lips covered. The color is pretty much non-existent, which wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t NINE DOLLARS a tube! I can get an 8-pack of lip gloss for that price at the drug-store. There is a slight shimmer to your lips after applying it, but no real color. Some people prefer this, so you may like that, but the texture is just too thick for my liking, and the price way too high.I ended up chucking this and going back to my regular lip gloss/chapstick favorites. Thanks Amazon, for the opportunity to try this, but it really wasn’t to my liking. While I love Burt’s Bee’s products, I just can’t really recommend this.
Really nice for the price,
I admit it: I am a lip gloss addict.I have tons of glosses, usually in this color family. I would put this one somewhere in the middle of the pack, and that’s pretty good for the price! Its consistency is medium, maybe somewhere close to that of Bare Escentuals Buxom (but without the plumping/menthol feel). Thinner than Nars (but what isn’t?) and thicker than some of the Cliniques I have, which are admittedly older.It’s a very neutral color, but not just sheer or nude. It’s got a little bit of a spiced hue on my very pale lips. I think it is similar to Buxom Lola.Staying power isn’t too bad. It lasted for a couple hours.It’s not the king of lip glosses…that goes hands down to Nars…but if you don’t want to pay $18-$24 for lip gloss, give this a try.
Sticky, barely any color. Way, way overpriced.
This goes on very sticky, much more-so than typical lipsticks. The color, on my lips at least, is irrelevant because you can’t see it at all. I don’t think this would work over other lip colors either and adding gloss did nothing. The only reason I gave it two stars is because Burt’s Bees is good for your lips, and because someone with a much, much lighter or darker lip color might find this color useful. For nearly $13 a tube, this is way overpriced. Personally, mine is going in the trash as a complete waste of time.
I got this for my wife. She reports that this is an ideal lip gloss and sites as a strength exactly what some others have sited as its primary weakness–it is very subtle. She also really likes the natural ingredients in Burt’s Bees products generally and that is an advantage here over other brands. While “Autumn Haze” is a good color, she prefers “Ocean Sunrise” but that’s a matter of your own color palette. One small disclaimer: my wife is not a makeup person in general and so she has much less experience with other brands than I suspect other reviewers have on this site. Still, even without making other comparisons, she is very happy with this product.
Looks good, but I dislike the texture and taste
I do like the color of this lip gloss. It is exactly what I like: just a light touch of color and a little shimmer, but not too much.However, I really dislike the texture. It is too thick and waxy. It didn’t spread smoothly across my lips and felt a bit heavy on my lips. There is also a noticeable waxy taste right when you first apply it.My usual everyday lip cover is cherry chapstick. Applying the Burt’s Bees Lip Gloss on top of the chapstick did improve the feel of the lip gloss. So, since I do like the color, I will probably use this lip gloss on occasions when I want a little bit more color, but apply a base coat of chapstick first. I will not, however, buy any more.
I love lip gloss but I don’t love this one. I don’t hate it either. It’s just OK.Ocean Sunrise lip gloss goes on fairly evenly with a small, angled sponge applicator. I found that I had to use multiple dips into the tube to get the thickness of application I desired. This is fine if you just want a thin coat of gloss but there will be very little color or shine with just one swipe of the wand. The gloss itself is extremely sheer with just a pale density of peachy-pink pigment with a rose gold shimmer. The shimmer itself is fairly finely ground so the result is more luster than disco. The end result is very casual and low key. I did not find that the gloss stayed on very long…the color evaporated first, then the shimmer. After about an hour, there was nothing left. The texture (and fragrance) is somewhat waxy and there is no obvious flavor.As a drug store brand, I find Burt’s Bees OK, but there are far superior brands offering far superior products that are available at the same or lower price. You might want to try L’Oreal. If you are willing to venture out of the drug store, for only several dollars more, MAC makes an outstanding line of glosses called Lipglass.
Just not a fan
I’m a big fan of Burt’s Bees men’s products (smell SO good…really MANLY!) and their Body Butter. I like that it’s organic, the smell is always clean not overpowering, and it’s just something you can feel good about using.So, I was excited to try this gloss.NOT impressed. As other’s have mentioned it’s VERY sticky, much more so than almost any other gloss I have tried. As someone with long hair that I like to wear down when I go out with my husband, gloss not being overly sticky is a must for me. I put this on, walked outside and right into a windy day. I kid you not, an entire chunk of hair got stuck to my lips. And not just stuck, I could blow it off stuck…but stuck, in that I had to take it off my lips with my hands, and then I was treated to a sticky, waxy mess in my hair.The color, though very pretty in the tube, is non-existent. I am medium to light skin toned, and I got no color, though I did get a bit of shine. This might be pretty over a matte lipstick, but because of the stickiness factor, I will not be using it in that regard.As for the price-I think it’s pricey. I wear gloss for a casual night out, so I want some color as well as some shine, this did not give me any color. Cover Girl has some great colored gloss for less than half the price of this one. If you want to splurge, I would suggest Clinique’s Almost lipstick or MAC’s lipglass, both are in this price range, but offer superior color and shine.
perfect light shimmer
This is a great product, not to sticky and has a light golden shimmer. I need something with a little more gold and staying power, but for sheer coverage or to lighten a lip color this is fantastic.
Pretty even down to the packaging
Pretty even down to the packaging which has a fading honeycomb pattern on the top. The color is on the sheer side, but it does have just enough opacity to tone down a lipcolor that feels too strong on its own. There is also a yummy glazed donut scent when you first put it on. It’s not sticky at all and lasts about as long as other lip glosses. I would buy this again.
Nice Neutral Color
I like most Burt’s Bees Products but this would be my first time trying the gloss. I’d say overall i’m pretty satisfied with this product. I’m satisfied with how it looks once on the lips but as far as dipping the stick in the bottle it’s kind of hard to get out. It didn’t seem like much was in there. I don’t know if it was just the one I received, the consistency of the product inside or something else, but if you’re going to pay 12 bucks for a lip gloss i’d expect there to be a decent amount there. To me it didn’t seem like there was. The consistency was kind of pasty. I kept dipping the tube yet not getting much out.I don’t see me getting a lot out of this considering what is in the tube. It’s straining just to get the gloss on the wand to put it on your lips- I was scraping the edges of the bottle trying to get more and this was only after one usage or just opened…. I’m kind of torn on this one considering I didn’t think the tube was filled to the capacity though once on the lips I liked the result. It looked great on. Looks different on the lips than it does when trying to get it out of the tube. Nice shine, felt good and had a neutral color with a hint of pink shine. Overall, I’d probably give it 3.5- 4 stars. But if the one you get is anything like the one I got don’t expect to get much out of it.
My 12 year old loves this lip gloss! She suffers with dry skin during our long winters and has tried every brand of chap-stick under the sun. She says she feels that wearing Burt’s Bess Lip Gloss feels like her chapped lips are repaired somewhat. The smell is very mild, not overwhelming and she says it doesn’t really make much difference. She feels pretty also and loves applying them. A winner in our book!
pretty and smooth
Feels great, even on drier-than-they-should-be lips. Nicely understated color- perfect for going out or just going to the store. One of my regular go-tos.
Not Sticky But Not a Huge Amount of Pigment
I’m kind of agh about this lippy. It’s not sticky which is nice at this time of year when your hair gets blown in your face. But neither is it particularly rich feeling and I feel like you get a small amount of product on the applicator with just one dip. The color is another issue. I know it’s light but I’m porcelain skinned so I expected the pigment to show up a bit better. I’d like to try it in a much brighter shade since I do like the idea of a natural lip color. You do ingest a fair amount of whatever you coat your lips in so I’d rather it not be all chemically.
Burt’s Bees Lip Gloss: Ocean Sunrise
I must have a million lip glosses. I always think the next lip gloss will be the perfect lip gloss. It will shine, won’t be too sticky and it will last. I’m never gonna find the perfect lip gloss. But in the words of Meatloaf, Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad. The only thing not perfect about this lip gloss is the sticky factor. For me, it’s too sticky. The color’s great, it has some shine and it lasts well into the day.
Nice Gloss, Even If You Have Allergies.
This came in good timing with the very cold and dry air that we’ve been having the past few weeks, not to mention the wind gusts. My lips had been starting to get red, dry, and a little sore. But I put this on before going out the other day and it really helped protect them.Besides making a nice protective barrier from the elements, this is a nice lip gloss in general. There is a bit of sparkle and this Autumn Haze shade is very light and natural looking. It is not super glittery, but as the description of it says, it is sort of a pearly sparkle, and I like that a lot because it’s subtle, but pretty. And another great point is that it does not make my lips feel sticky, just a little glossy.The biggest thing I love about this gloss is that it does not bother my allegies. I have gotten some glosses, lipsticks, and even lip balms (even that say they are unscented) that have a sort of slight taste/scent to them, very light, but that bothers my allergies and tends to make my throat feel just a little scratchy and irritated. If this is a problem for you, this gloss hasn’t bothered me at all, which I love. You can slightly smell some of the ingredients, but nothing bothers me.I love this light color and it would be great for tweens also who are wanting to start wearing a little makeup, but moms not wanting them to wear anything too bright. It just gives a nice little gloss and sparkle. And it adds a little protection from the elements this cold, windy winter that many of us seem to be having. Now if only it had some SPF in it. Because of that I am tempted to just give it 4 stars. But I am always so happy to find a lip product without that scent/taste that bothers my allergies that I just have to give it 5 stars. And that it’s a gloss that is not sticky and doesn’t leave my lips feeling like there is residue left on them once it wears off or I wipe it off. It comes off clean, and I really like that in lip products.
New and improved Burt’s
I’m a big Burt’s Bees fan, I love many of their product lines. But their first lip gloss, the ‘shiny’ tube ones, were gooey and smelled/tasted of citrus (not my fave). This is my new go-to for a natural lip gloss. It’s not as bright as the photo make it to be, it has a rosy hue and I find it looks natural on me. The texture is that of a gloss but not as watery, it does have staying power. The plastic on this says it was made from recycled plastics, how green! I may try some other shades since I do love this new glass bu Burt’s.
Not Quite what I wanted
The color is nice but it’s not easy to slide on and remain moist enough to feel comfortable on my lips. This just may be my own "affliction" as my lips are always dry.
Smells chalky and is a bit too thick
The color and sheen is nice, but the gloss itself goes on too thick for my tastes, and the smell is chalky and off putting.
Double Duty Palest Pink
I love Burt’s Bees products, but I’d never tried anything from them that could be considered makeup. I like this because it isn’t so gooey it tacks your lips together or you end up eating it with one’s food. I love the color. It’s pale enough that it doesn’t fight with a lipstick color you might be wearing. But it also leaves just a hint of pink and gloss for a totally natural look when used all by itself. You know, those days when you don’t have time to spend in front of the mirror. I have a motto for it. Smear and Go! And if Burt’s wants to use it, I’m getting it copyrighted or trademarked or whatever. (-:
