BURT'S BEES LIP SHIMMER!



It's cold here in the Northeast and I don't go anywhere without my Burt's Bees! Yes, for that pout-y, Jean Shrimpton '60s look, pucker-up with a kiss of Burt's Lip Shimmer. Available in 13 pearlized colors, this lip shimmer is brimming with goodness—vitamin E, coconut and sunflower oils—and just the right amount of peppermint oil, for a perfect taste. At only $5 a shimmer, you can buy every color for every bag or pocket. My favorites are Champagne, Guava, Watermelon, and new Caramel. Just pure, shimmering goodness!



Note: Nicky Haslam was the Creative Director on the legendary Bazaar cover above [see Colette's note below!]

  1. Love the Lip Shimmer - I have about four Nutmegs in different spots, but Caramel may be right up my alley.

  2. Hi Mrs. B!
    I love the Caramel... it's a camel-y gold, very much like the cap above.

  3. I've never tried these - but now think I must (maybe Griebs has them)! And Jean Shrimpton was my idol!! Do you remember when she was the icon for Yardley? One of my favorite presents of the era was a set of 26 mini Yardley lipsticks in a fabulous package including colors like pearlized blue and white - I just loved it - although I was not allowed out of the house with any of them on (of course I did though).

  4. Stacey "Q", you will love the BB shimmers! I do remember those Yardley minis. As teens, we had a make-up closet that was formerly a linen closet... with a full-length door mirror that was perfect for putting on make-up. A lot of Darien friends remember that closet well! Stocked with everything. The site does list Griebs! ; )

  10. Hi Renee, Mary Quant cosmetics were so MOD and fabulous!! The brand created a simple daisy logo that was just right for the times.
