Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm Red Dahlia -- 0.15 oz
This is a nice balm but no tint evident, not on lips, my hand or tissue to remove it. I purchased Red Dahlia. The packaging is deceptive as you may expect a larger tube, but actual tube is the usual small size.
It is not very ecological to double package when not needed. I was so disappointed that I contacted the company. Alba Terra Tint in Blaze (soft red) is a much better product. I usually don't write reviews but I expected more from Burt's Bees.

The red dahlia is a nice color (fair to medium complexion, blue eyes) and does make my lips feel really smooth. I usually apply, let set for a while and then wipe off and reapply and blot. This has really made a difference in keeping my lips from getting chapped. Not real long lasting but a nice product and I will repurchase.

Another great BB product!
When I don't feel like wearing heavy lipstick, just something light and natural this gives a really fresh tint to my lips. I also like to use it over my lipliner to add a little moisture and tint. Really natural looking and I don't have to worry about what I'm licking off of my lips!

Makes you look much better when you're pale/tired
I was honestly expecting something much bigger than a regular lip balm-sized stick. I don't appreciate the deceptive advertising. And the smell isn't great, but it's not bad either.
Now, the color rocks. It makes a big difference when you're pale or tired; it certainly makes me look healthier if I don't! It's very subtle so appropriate for work settings, but it does make a difference. It also moisturizes well, like a regular Burt's Bees lip balm. Sweet product!

Sheer Color, Moisturizing, but No Flavor
It feels like a regular lip balm and this Red Dahlia has a nice tint that'll probably look good on anyone who just wants a touch of color. It doesn't have a sweet flavor like it says, but that doesn't bother me, no flavor is good, too.
I also use Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb (slimmer tube, half the amount of product,) which is a shade darker than this one. Lip Shimmer in Fig is also pretty and just a shade brighter, with a slightly rosier hue. I keep one in the car for touch-ups so I won't have to carry one around with me. :)
