Right on the Lips

I think my lips are fairly average. They get dry and a little chapped during winter, but nothing crazy. I don't have a lot of issues with them.

If you have normal lips, I can't think of anything better than Burt's Bees.

I'm currently completely enamored with their Replinishing Lip Balm. It has pomegranate oil, so it's really tasty as well as being nice and moisturizing. (But it is a *little* girly.)

I'm not a huge fan of lipstick, because I eat it like no one's business. Seriously, if I apply right before I leave for work, it will be gone by the time I get there, so I tend to stick to lighter stuff that's easier to apply, because I need to reapply constantly.

That's where their lip shimmer comes into play. It has lip balm qualities with a light coat of awesome color! My one complaint is that every time I find a color I love, it goes away. :(

I currently regularly use: Coffee (no longer available, which is sad because it is the PERFECT shade of brown for pale girls) Rhubarb (a dark, pinky pink) Merlot (a darker, bluer red) and Nutmeg (just a little browner and shimmier than my normal lips.)

Tip: if you go to the website and click on the magnifying glass over on the left, it will show you the actual gloss, not just the tube, which will give a better sense of the color.

On the other hand, at $5 a pop, you can just buy a bunch and experiment. Your lips will thank you.

Hmmm, I had just been using their regular beeswax kind, but I appear to have lost it over the weekend. Maybe I'll give the pomegranate kind a try for a change.

Also, I've been using their shimmer in Fig. I had Merlot, but it was a little too bright.
