If you're a fan of Burt's Bees Lip Balm, you might consider giving the Burt's Bees Lip Shimmers a go. These compact, lip glosses provide a hint of sparkle and shine that's natural and very flattering.

The slim design makes it quite easy to slip a Shimmer in your pocket for a night out on the town. With 12 shades available, the chances are good you'll find one that suits you. For a brighter color, try Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb. Champagne may be a good choice for a lighter, summery glow. Burt's Bees has also introduced a full-out gloss: the Super Glossy Lip Shine. It's definitely a bit heavier, but if you're going for mega-watt shine, this might work well.
