Review: Burts Bees Tinted Lip Balm (Pink Blossom) | 8-hours of moisturisation

When you think of lip balms, you think of Burts Bees. I don't really use lip balm regularly in Singapore but they are a staple when I travel. This is a tinted lip balm, something useful when you need both moisture and colour.

Peel to review the ingredient list but it is easier to check above. 

Transfer test

It transfers; as expected. Lip balms tend to sit on top of your lips to provide protection. Touching up is necessary after a meal or drink. 
As the colour is sheer, it does not look bad after eating.


Quite a strong, waxy scent. I don't really like it. 


They have 8 colours in the range and there are selections suitable for all skin tones. I picked Pink Blossom, one of the most popular colours in this series.

Swatched it lightly on my wrist. The colour is sheer but still shows on my skin.


Promises 8 hours of hydration and it lives up to claim. Quite moisturising but I have not tested on chapped/peeling lips (no chance thanks to the humidity in Singapore)

On lips (Swatch)

Colour payoff is light and it offers some colour correction. 

Pink Blossom is a nice cool pink but it does not suit my skin tone. I have warmer and tanner skin colour so a cooler lip colour isn't flattering on me. It makes my lips look purple as you can see below lol.

I don't know why I picked this colour but if you're fair/have cool undertones, Burts Bees pink blossom will probably look great on you! 

You will feel it on your lips but it is not tacky or sticky. 


Application is easy - there's no need for a mirror or to prep your lips before that. 


Burts bees is known for its natural formulation and this tinted lip balm is free of parabens, phthalates, petrolatum, or SLS. A quick run-through on its ingredients suggests little red flags.

If you are looking to protect/repair very chapped lips (something I always suffer from whenever I travel to drier climates), check out Lucas Papaw ointment or Laneige Lip Mask. I have not tested this on badly chapped lips so I can't tell for sure how moisturising it is. I actually like the humidity level in Singapore because I literally peel everywhere whenever I travel a little further lol. 

I use this on its own when I needed some moisture and some colour. It will still transfer so some will end on up the inside of my mask (common issue since 2020) but it is still bearable. I don't think the colour is not nice, it is just not suitable for me. 

I hope they would consider working on the scent though. It really smells like a crayon to me. Not overbearing but since I am constantly smelling it when I apply on my lips, it can feel a little unpleasant over time. 
The last thing I want to mention is... Burts Bee lip tint balm is so expensive in Singapore? $18 for a lip balm, ok.
I remembered it was selling for $3/4 USD in America. What a big difference. 

- Sheer colour
- Moisturising
