Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't like them at all I just bought two in buttery blush and liquid honey because I loved the colors, but am so disappointed in these. It's very hard to apply, very much like using a dry crayon on my lips, and it smells "off". It smells like an old lipstick that's been left forgotten in a drawer for years. I don't like the lid design either. I wasn't paying attention to the slant on the product and the lid, and because I didn't have them lined up properly, the tube of the lipstick got bent and smashed when I put the cap back on. I've never been disappointed in any Burt's Bees products, but these were a total waste of money :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor coverage and bad smell I have been a fan of Burt’s Bees products and I really liked their matte crayon, but the matte sticks I bought, not so much. Trying put the lipstick on is like trying to put crayon on your lips. The color just does not go on or stay on. I tried applying over and over and over and it didn’t help. In addition, like some other reviews said, it smells bad. Kind of like it’s old or something. I bought two and it was the same for both. I’m so disappointed because I wanted to love it

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad smell I love all the products Burt makes except the Matte stick. The color is nice but the smell is like old crayons. I bought 2 tubes at different locations and the both have the terrible smell and taste. Yuck!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well saturated color At first I’m hesitate to make the purchase because based on the sheen lipstick I’ve tried from burt’s, the color is not saturated. However, I’m so glad that I gave this matte stick a try! It’s pigmented, nourishing, and not like other matte lipsticks that leaves your lips drier and leave cracks on your lips. Plus you can’t beat the price point. Give it a try, you might like it too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for mama bears I stopped wearing lip gloss/tinted balm/lipstick when I had my baby since I didn't want to put colors in her hair or on her face. This mate stick is just perfect, adds some color without smudging everywhere. I love that it doesn't smell anything. Of course it doesn't hydrate but I use it for the color, not the hydration. Lip balm by night and Matte Stick by day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this product so much This is the only daily lipstick I use now. The shades are very pretty and natural looking. I put layers of different shades on my lips. Buttery blush or Rhubarb rapids then Liquid honey on top. I love the matte look, I don't find this dry at all once you break through the top layer. If I want it to be more shiny I add lip gloss but I don't find myself doing that often. The only shade that I find smells slightly like crayons is Liquid honey, the other ones are sort of flowery smelling.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t, just don’t I happen to be a huge fan of Burt’s Bees’ lip shimmer product and I have a ton of problems finding makeup my skin won’t react to, so when I went looking for a matte lipstick I grabbed a Burt’s Bees. When I tried to wear it it was so dry that I could barely get it on and within five minutes my lips were dry, dry, dry. Technically, it works if you put a moisturizer type balm on first, but then it smudges off real easy. I can’t wear it alone, and I won’t wear it layered because it’s too much work to get it looking decent. Don’t buy this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Usable I bought two sticks last week and can't believe how awful they are. To begin with, they are designed that you have to retract the stick every single time or you wreck it... But, they are awful product. I don't know if they are old stock... but they are so dry they are breaking up under application pressure. Contacting support!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Product is great! Packaging sucks. Hear me out. I've been looking for a more affordable/accessible version of the Gen G blotted lip look and these are as close as I've found with the advantage of coming in WAY more colors. I LOVE this product, but it's the packaging that makes this lipstick fail imo. I see a lot of reviews saying the lipstick is drying, crumbly, drags and pulls. I honestly think it's because of the packaging. It's contained in a very cheap,thin, weak plastic that bends easily. The cap comes off constantly and has the same angled point as the lipstick shape so if you don't put the cap on in line with the tip of the lipstick, it will squish the bullet and the tube that's supposed to protect it (when I accidentally did this the plastic of the tube bent and didn't even completely return to it's shape so not only did it crumble and ruin the tip of the lipstick but the tube it comes in). I think the thin plastic and the crappy cap design is what makes the lipstick inside dry, hard, and crumbly. I have 4 of the colors (Plum, Raspberry, Blush, and Rhubarb), and they're all very pretty, even on my constantly chapped lips, but I can't trust it to stay put together if I toss it in my purse. It also smells like crayons which doesn't bother me personally but it might bother some. Having to handle the flimsy plastic with so much care to keep the product inside fresh is just too much work. I still love them and want more, but PLEASE change the packaging.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from smells like old crayons I just bought this as I was looking for a matte color. I just tried it and I wish that I read the reviews first. It smells like old crayons. I had to mix it with a lip balm to try and dilute the smell. I am sorry. I am disappointed by this product and will not buy again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sticky like glue My first Burt’s Bees lipstick purchase. This is the worst lipstick I have ever used. It’s like a dry chalky glue. It clumps on my lips and was a total waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won’t Purchase Again I’ve been a faithful BB user for years and thought I would try this new to me product. Very disappointed. INThe formula is so drying my lips hurt and it flakes off. Not sure what happened with this product, but it’s a flop in my opinion.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would be a 5 in a different tube! I bought two shades - Buttery Blush and Canyon Creek. long time user of Burt’s products. The shades are beautiful and the matte formula is perfect - just the right amount of moisturizer. I put my Burt’s peppermint lip balm under and on top of it. Lasts for hours. BUT I am very disappointed with the tube it come in. If you don’t peel all of the label off you cannot close it. It doesn’t come off clean when only tearing the top lid half off and then lid doesn’t secure and comes off. In your bag. And the tube gets dented. It happened to both tubes on two occasions in different bags. I don’t know if I will buy this again unless the tube is improved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Impossible to Apply I purchased this product because I love all the BB's products & was looking for a matte lipstick. At my age I didn't want anything shiny. I love the color (Canyon Creek),but it was like trying to apply colored chalk. The only way that I could use it was to apply lip balm first. Disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not all products are good Today I bought your matte stick in Ruby (455) Its dry, crumbly & goes on like it was a crayon?? I have been using your Tinted Lip balm in Red Dahlia. & loved it & almost out. SO I have been watching my local stores waiting for them to get more in with no luck. I hate it. Did you quit making the tinted balm? If not I would love to get more. I will not use this matte stick at all it does nothing as a moisture, it dries out my lips. So a big waste of $$

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great look, bad smell Bought two of these in liquid honey and rush of raspberry, really love the colors and feel but the smell is awful. Not sure what they are supposed to smell like but mine are like dirty crayons. I would 100% recommend these if they didnt smell. Perhaps I got a bad batch.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I got an old matte stick - I hope I got the color Mulberry Mist. I prefer a slightly darker color, and this gave nice coverage and the color is beautiful. Unfortunately, it smells like it's an old stick or has gone rancid. I tried it anyway, and now the taste is stuck on my lips. I am bummed as I usually Burt's Bees products to be fresh, clean, and to smell nice. Has anyone else had this issue? Is it just me? Did I get ahold of an old matte stick?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice colour This is my third try at the colour choices, I’d love to try more but I find the product too dry, works paired with their lip balms but I rather not have to apply two products. I love Burts and am a loyal fan, but not totally sold on this matte stick.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really like liquid honey Got liquid honey, looking for a sheer nude matte that wasn’t too pink. This fits the bill. I heard people say these matte sticks are good dupes for glossier gen g lipsticks. Haven’t tried glossier’s so I can’t speak to that, but I imagine they are similar in concept based on how glossier describes their product’s application and finish. I really like the formula and color of liquid honey. Sheer reddish brown color, applies more opaque with multiple swipes. Blotted look. I wasn’t sure it would look right with my coloring (dark golden blond hair, light-medium skin with pink and yellow undertones). Turns out it looks great! Matches a blush I have which is reddish-bronzy, like when you have a rosy tan after being in the sun awhile. Gave it 4 stars bc while I love the look & color, but it is not very long-lasting. Needs to be reapplied after an hour or so, which is a bummer given that there’s not a ton of product to begin with. The taste is like clay/play dough, which isn’t my favorite, but par-for-the-course for this type of formula. Wish they had added some peppermint oil to make it more distinctively Burts Bees. Wonder if that would change the blotted-matte finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the color [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This bert’s bees Matte stick lipstick is heaven in a tube. The color is long lasting and leaves your lips feeling hydrated and fresh. The color was beautiful and lasted throughout the day. I would highly recommend this matte lipstick

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Color but too Dry [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I really loved the color on this, I have Rhubarb Rapids, which is a beautiful deep mauve/pink color. I prefer a matte look so I was excited to try this but it doesn’t go on as smoothly as I would have liked. It does stay on nicely once applied but it could be a bit creamier so it could glide on easier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Burts Bee Matte Stick that I received as a sample was very convenient to use. The Burts Bee Matte Stick fits nicely in my purse or back pocket. The Burts Bee Matte Stick is truly a Matte and I like wearing it for work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Formula not my favorite! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] While I loved the color I chose, the formula was extremely dry for me and it would flake off of my lips. I was disappointed because I would need to put on several layers to get it to show, and it would not la St long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for no-makeup makeup lovers! I have this is Liquid Honey and Liquid Ruby and this is one of my favourite lipsticks. The finish is matte but not a flat or liquid lipstick matte. They have a balmy texture and the colours are very flattering. They can be worn sheer and the pigment is buildable. Great for everyday or lighter makeup looks. It’s like a less dry and version of Glossier’s Gen G Lipsticks. These are comfortable but not moisturising. They ARE matte lipsticks so I wasn’t expecting them to be. I just wish the packaging was a little better. It’s flimsy and for the price I feel like it could be better. Also it has carmine in it which isn’t a deal breaker but would’ve been really great if it didn’t.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Crumbly Letdown I bought this a couple hours ago. I don't know if this was a really old stick, but it's dry and crumbly. There's nothing smooth or velvety about it. The colour goes in very uneven and patchy. I like the colour and the fact that I can build it to be as faint or intense as I want, but I don't know if that is just a side effect of the dryness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Application, Stays On! I am a huge fan of Burt's Bee's colors and have bought a lot of lip products from them (from their gloss to their chapstick to their lip crayons). I love this product because it is a soft buildable color that can be intensified with just a few more swipes of the product (it can really take your look from subtle for a work day to bold for a night out). It goes on smoothly and barely feels like you're wearing anything. It also STAYS PUT. I did the back of the hand lipstick kiss test and no product came off on my hands. Overall great product and I definitely want to buy in more shades!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This product made my lips dry! :( I am usually a fan of burts bees lip products, but this matte stick made my lips dry out (I bought it in the shade rhubarb rapids). Even when I apply to soft lips, my lips start becoming very dry immediately afterwards.
