Just a quick note to say hi, ladies. I fell behind this afternoon, but I still wanted to tell you about Yes to Carrots’ line of pigmented C Me Blush Lip Tints.
They cost a mere $4.50 each (that’s my mid-morning latte, yo!) but have a super smooth, buttery texture that makes ’em feel a lot more expensive than that.
Texture-wise they remind me of the $22 Guava lipsticks by Korres. That’s how slick and creamy they feel.
My favorite thing about them? — how pigmented they are (for lip tints). These puppies pack *lots* of color, applying with semi-sheer to medium coverage.
The resulting lip’s a casual look that I can see myself wearing a lot on weekends or to the gym.
According to Yes to Carrots, a company known for organic beauty products, the ingredients are 95% natural. Scanning down the list, I see different organic plant oils, extracts, natural moisturizers (like Shea butter and beeswax) and very few unpronounceable chemicals, which is always nice. 🙂
I’m lovin’ that they don’t contain phenols or petroleum-based chemicals — compounds that, ironically, can actually dry lips. No need to worry about getting sucked into a cycle of lip balm dependency (I hate those).
I mentioned that each of the six wearable shades run $4.50 apiece — already a great deal — but I’ve also seem them sold in three-packs for around $5. I think at that price (what’s that, like $1.67 each?!) they’re a flat-out steal.
Not exactly the easiest products to track down online, but I know my local Tar-ghay carries ’em, so check your store for availability. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
What do you think of these colors? Do any catch your eye?
