Yes to Carrots Lip Tints Say YES to Affordable Lip Color

Published in: Drugstore Beauty Finds, Makeup


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.


Sunset Pink

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.

Ready Red

Texture-wise they remind me of the $22 Guava lipsticks by Korres. That’s how slick and creamy they feel.

Chocolate Kiss

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.

Natural Smile

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. πŸ™‚

Cotton Candy

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).

Coral Sunshine

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?

    Oh GIRL. I’m getting these tomorrow. I love tinted lip balms, cuz I’m lazy as hell lately. Alma Organics, Burt’s, Neutrogena’s discontinued liptints (grrr), I digs you all. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Patti says:

    Oh wow that’s a good deal, I think my Target has this too but I sorta ignored it haha..

  3. Jess says:

    ohhh these look so pretty on you! i will have to check them out. do they have a scent/flavor at all?

  4. Sarah says:

    Wow! Good deal much? What color would look good on small thin lips, normally pale skin (just sunless tanned), and blonde hair?

  5. Maggie says:

    Wow, they look so pretty! I’ll have to hunt them down.
    It even looks super creamy on your lips. πŸ™‚

    Which color do you like the most?

  6. Kate & Zena says:

    I love the first two, but do I really need another red and another pink? I have a sheer, a matte, a creamy one…for the few times I wear red, I sure have a lot of red lippies. It’s like pink lipgloss with me–I can never have too few. I don’t think I actually own a berry or anything that isn’t pink, pinkey-beige, clear or nude. I own one nude, I think.

    Do these smell and taste that funky overly-fake mint scent/flavor (or any scent/flavor for that matter) like other Say Yes to Carrots stuff? There is nothing my brain hates more than fake mint smell.

  7. Sherry says:

    wow pretty, oh yeah how to snap picture of lips so sexy?

      Hi Music,

      Hopefully they’ll be available soon so you can try ’em.

      Have you played with anything else from the line? The few skin care items I’ve tried are really nice.

  15. Monica says:

    Our Walgreens carries this line. If you have them, some of you may want to check there.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Monica,

      I’ve seen it at Walgreens, too. The 3-packs there are hit or miss.

      Walgreens ROCKS, btw! It’s like my home away from home. πŸ™‚

  16. Tiffany says:

    Oooh, I will have to try to hunt down the 3-pack, that is a bargain! Happy Tuesday, Karen!

    These look adorable! Totally interested. πŸ˜€

  18. redhead says:


    Any of the tints would look great on you, except Natural Smile and Chocolate Kiss – they may wash you out. The best would be Sunset Pink for day and Ready Red for a more dramatic look. πŸ™‚

    Hope I helped!

  22. Trude says:

    I love their lip balm already, so this is an easy jump for me! The best part is with tints you don’t have to worry about needing a mirror, just slap it on and go. πŸ™‚

    I went to Target this morning after reading your post. I got the three-pack for 5 dollars! I swear, the best 5 dollars I’ve ever spent! The pack had Cotton Candy, Sunset Pink, and Coral Sunshine. I just love them! Thanks Karen!

  24. Solé says:

    Hi Karen!

    Thank you so much for posting about natural makeup products. I am on a mission to go all natural and it has not been easy. I’ve been looking for lipcolor without petrochemicals and these sound perfect! And you can’t beat that price. I am actually going to Target later today so hopefully I’ll find these. πŸ™‚

  25. Janeve says:

    ooo, hopefully i’ll be able to find these at target!!

  26. Smiley says:

    Love Chocolate Kiss!

  30. Katrina says:

    Karen, I had to go out and buy these just because of this post. Unfortunately I was only able to find the three pack so I’ll probably be ordering chocolate kiss and natural smile online.

  31. Lauren says:

    They are on sale at my target for $1.12 !

  32. Sarah says:

    I just bought Sunset Pink. I don’t quite see the effect yet because it’s night time but maybe I will see it better tomorrow. I love your pictures!
