Burt’s Bees Lipgloss in Rosy Dawn Swatches, Review, Photos

Burt's bees lipgloss in Rosy Dawn Review, Photos, SwatchesDon’t you just love an everyday subtle gloss that you can just toss into your bag and just go? Or how about one that is not too overbearing but lasts quite a long time even though it is still pretty sheer? Well meet Burt’s Bees lip gloss in Rosy Dawn ($9, 0.2 oz) which is described as a gloss that is a “Rich, pearlized color [that] combines with natural oils rich in nutrients to leave your lips soft, shiny and 100% naturally beautiful.”

I would describe Burt’s Bees lip gloss in Rosy Dawn as a sheer medium toned pink with hints of hot pink, silver, and red shimmer. This gloss is not the most pigmented so I was surprised that it lasted 3 hours on me since it is pretty sheer. It lasted about 3 hours and after that it left a sheer coat of shimmer after the gloss had gone away. I was able to get a nice wash of a translucent pink tone on the lips but I had to layer it on heavily because it takes quite a few coats to get any color to show up on your lips evenly like it does in the swatch below.

The texture of this gloss is quite thick and a bit sticky and has a lot to do with its pretty incredible staying power. The thickness and the fact that it has some stickiness to it may be why it is able to really adhere to the lips. This gloss does not feel uncomfortable on the lips even though the gloss is a bit thick, tacky, and sticky because it offers a nice slick smooth feel to the lips that actually moisturizes them. Also, with this gloss I noticed that it sits right on top of the lips and isn’t absorbed much at all, which I think is why it lasts a good while on the lips as well.

The packaging of this lip gloss is your standard lip gloss packaging that comes with a doe tip applicator. This gloss doesn’t have any taste but has a very waxy-like scent that does go away after time.

I like this as an everyday gloss to wear especially on days where I don’t feel like wearing a lipstick or anything that offers too much color. This gloss would work for someone who doesn’t mind sheer glosses and if you are a pigment junkie you’d probably want to bypass this one for a gloss that offers more color coverage. This gloss also probably wouldn’t work for someone who doesn’t like a sticky or thick gloss but I did not mind this aspect of it because it really lessened the amount of times I usually have to reapply a gloss.

I’m actually looking forward to trying some of the other colors in the line how about any of you? Does the fact that that this gloss is a bit sticky, tacky, and thick bother you? Have any of you tried out any of Burt’s Bees lip glosses? If so, which ones?

    I need this sheer lip gloss! I have reviewed two other Burt’s Bees lip glosses. I am not really liking their tinted lip balms I find them alright, but these lip glosses impress me so much in terms of colour payoff and hydration! Love them!!

      You should try it! This is one of my faves next to Revolution Organics truth. It’s also sheer enough to pair with your favorite lipsticks because it doesn’t overpower them, I love it. It is also very hydrating like you said. Thanks for your comment Asti!
