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+
