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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These are nice I enjoy it enough to have purchased 3 shades. Liquid ruby is a lovely bright red, perfect for summer. Mulberry mist is a deep plumish hue, which is nice for fall. Lilac lagoon isn't quite as light as the photos though. It is a nice shade for everyday wear, especially if you're pale and want an effortless, low maintenance, slightly dramatic lip. I like layering a tinted balm on top. The matte sticks wear for a couple hours alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it! 100 percent natural which I love most and of course very moisturizing. It glides so easy and smoothly. The shade is beautiful as well. Price is okay for the quality especially the packaging that is well made. Great job Burt’s Bees!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Like using a crayon I bought three if these because they looked so good. The colors are pretty to look at. The problem comes when you try to apply them to the lips. There is very little color pay off. It's literally like using a crayon with the same texture and feel. The stick even smells like wax. Even when it warms up on the lips still feels like wax. Not sure where all of these positive reviews originated.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could be better [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was really excited to try this product but unfortunately, it was a key down. The color was pretty but the formula could definitely be better. It's very dry and tugs as you try to apply it and it clumps on itself the more you try to go over it, making it very patchy. Giving two stars for the color alone! *received free for reviewing/testing purposes*

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Impressive for a natural product I buy burt's bees because it's a clean brand with mostly natural ingredients. I'm transitioning to their makeup products as well and this was the first item I decided to try since I love a bold matte lip in the fall and winter. First impressions: packaging is cute and you get a good amount of product for the price. I actually love the smell, it's very subtle and slightly floral but mostly has that typical natural cosmetics smell. This is a natural product so you should press it against your lip for a few seconds to soften it so it will glide on easier, otherwise it feels chalky. They describe this as a medium coverage product which I would mostly agree with. A few swipes and it looks very similar to other brands' "blotted lip" products which I actually enjoy. You can build a much fuller coverage though and it does give bold color payoff the more you layer. This is not transfer proof nor is it long lasting but I don't think they claim it is. It will feather around the outside of your lips quite often but it's small so easy to carry around and reapply. The few downsides are not a deal breaker for me because it's an affordable clean product. I'll definitely try other colors!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for every day [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I liked this lipstick. While it does not provide the same highly-pigmented matte look I am used to from matte liquid lipsticks, it is great for a casual, every-day sort of look. It was also more moisturizing, so I can see myself using this a lot during the colder months!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Matte Lipstick [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I received this product complimentary from Burt's Bees all the opinions are of my own. I had a very positive experience with this product. It applies easily and evenly. The color was a nice mauve natural and was highly pigmented. The product was long-lasting. Great for everyday use! Would highly recommend.
