Despite what your eyes may tell you, Barbie isn't "perfect" and neither is the human who portrays her, Margot Robbie. Yep, the stunning and talented Australian actress/producer needs a little everyday help too. One lip moisturizer she has turned to, Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm, is super-easy to come by, rich with shea butter, inexpensive (just $9 for two), and everything your dry winter lips need. And it packs a pop of color.
You won't even need lipstick in your daily life with this lip-loving choice. As Robbie told Harper's Bazaar back in 2016, "I don't like wearing lipstick because I get it all over my face, so I wear lip balm with a bit of a stain, like Burt's Bees..."
The flattering, hydrating favorite is rich with shea butter and botanical waxes — just perfect for dry, cold and windy conditions. It's all-natural and contains no parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or SLS. We wouldn't expect anything less from a nature-minded, eco-conscious company like Burt's Bees.
And Robbie isn't the only one to sing Burt's praises. Over 14,000 Amazon shoppers are so smitten with this smooch helper, they've given it a perfect five-star rating.
"Rich, natural color!" raved one fan. "I really like this tinted lip balm. I have been switching over to a more natural make-up look ... It gives just the right amount of surprisingly long-lasting rich color. It's slightly buildable, so you can achieve a more opaque color just by applying a few extra swipes! It's super moisturizing and can be easily applied without a mirror! I like that this set includes two, so I can keep one in my make-up drawer and one in my coat pocket!"
Added another happy shopper: "Perfect for those of us who can’t pull off lipstick! For years I’d try wearing it when I’d do my makeup for date night or other occasion, but it just never worked out. Either it would constantly rub off (eating, drinking, licking lips, etc.), or just start to look grainy/splotchy because my lips stay so chapped. Plus I’ve always thought my lips were too thin. Here I was thinking I was doomed to rock nude lips forever when in walks BB Tinted Lip Balm! All it takes is one swipe across the lips and it really sets off my makeup in a subtle but appealing way. Not just for makeup days either, perfect for everyday wear."
"LOVE this color," wrote a fan of the Red Dahlia shade. "I read somewhere that it’s similar to Clinique Black Honey and I didn’t want to spend the money for the expensive stuff. (Side note, I may or may not have wanted Black Honey because that’s the lip color they used on Liv Tyler in the Lord of the Rings movies.) This lip balm is smooth, long-lasting, and beautiful! Just don’t apply a lot of it at once — it doesn’t stay in place like a lipstick, so it can collect at the edge or corner of your lips if you overdo it." Thanks for the tip!
