Yes To Carrots LIP TINTS! and chapsticks..


I picked this 3-pack up at Target for $4.99 :) One of these alone usually costs that much but they were givin' me a good deal so I wanted to try it out.

They remind of of Burt's Bees shimmer lip balms BUT I think I prefer these more. It claims to be 95% organic, but what do I care? lol..just being honest.

They have a subtle shimmer, not overly done. The flash just exaggerated the shimmers but there is just a tiny hint of color in each lip balm.
Texture you wonder? The reason why I prefer these more over the burt's bees is because these glide on smooth and I don't feel like i'm applying a bunch of glitter on my lips.
There is a subtle mint smell and feel to these. I don't like feeling as if my lips are always numb or have that tingling feeling to it. To my surprise, I wore the cotton candy one before I went to bed and woke up with non-chapped lips!
Would I buy this again? Yes I would. BUT because I love trying new balms/chapsticks all the time I think these are gonna hve to wait a while before I come back to them again (hey i have 3 of them as of now anyways!)



My other chapsticks I have lying around. Strawberry Carmex with SPF 15 in it and Nivea's Kiss of Moisture with SPF 4.
I'm not one to care much about having SPF on my lips (i know i know) but for some reason these 2 just have em'.
Nivea's Kiss of moisture..sucks. haha, I say that because I find that I have to reapply within a short amount of time and it really does nothing to my lips except make it feel moisturized for like 10 minutes.
Carmex in Strawberry does an awesome job at keeping my lips moisturized, esp. when i'm sleeping. (this is great for those of you who like to breathe through your mouth when you sleep). The only thing I don't like about this is the numbing feeling it gives me.

Okay so I tried out the Purple Haze AVON quad today. And I hated it! Haha. The quality was good but the dark purple made it look like someone punched me in the eye haha. I had to go over it with another purple color to make it look purple!
