Burt's Bees Lip shimmer "Fig"

Burt's Bees is an american brand that specializes in making skincare products with honey and beewax in an organic way. Their products are eco certified and cruelty free AND all of their products are 100% natural. They cannot however be categoriezed as vegan since they contain "animal" products (honey).
But what is there not to like?
Well, first of all this colour doesn't work on me. I went with the darkest shade, called Fig, which is a sheer red brownish kind of colour. Usually darker colour look good with my fair skin but this time I might have been wrong. It does however work if I only use one thin layer, but after a while it feels like it's melting on my lips and the look is kinda flame-ish/bleeding and weird. The sticker is also this thing you can peel away to see the ingredients list underneath but I warn you - do NOT do this. If you do this, just once, it will forever slowly peel away itself (as you can see in the picture) and dirt will find its way and stick with you for the rest of your life. Sorta.
This lip shimmer does however feel quite amazing, when applied it's minty and chilly and quickly softens your lips and keep them soft.

ps. On my nails I have H&M's Darling Pink which is a gorgeous nude pink with tiny shimmer particles. Get it while you can, it's really cheap and really pretty.
