CHEAP THRILL ALERT!
Hey, now, dirty birdies. Get that mind out of the gutter. I’m not talking ’bout that kind of nasty…
Or this kind for that matter…
I’m talking about the affordably awesome Yes to Carrots C Me Shine Lip Glosses ($6.50 each and available in six shades).
If it weren’t for their faint mint flavor and fragrance (which dissipates quickly), they’d almost be knockoffs of the MAC Lipgelles, which cost twice as much ($14). They have a similar smooth and shiny, non-stick texture and also broadcast seriously intense color.
And with six shades to choose from — Playful Nude, Rose Bliss, Flirty Pink, Carrot Kiss, Red Hot and Cocoa Loco — there’s a decent degree of variety within the line.
I’ve tried three of the colors:
First impressions? Moisture. These pretties make my parched pout feel softer than a baby’s bottom, and they do it naturally. Like Yes to Carrots’ fantabulous lip tints, the C Me Shine Lip Glosses contain 95% natural ingredients and few unpronounceable chemicals, with the exception of ricinus communis (castor seed oil)… That’s one I kinda struggle with.
So far this year I’ve been really impressed by Yes to Carrots’ lip makeup. I’d LOVE to see them roll out color products for cheeks and eyes. The C Me Shine Glosses deliver rich color with a texture that feels way more expensive than it is. $6.50 for this kind of quality? Cheap thrills indeed! Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A+
I just got back from a run, which looks to be the only productive thing I’ll probably do tonight. I may squeeze in some reading with my new Sookie Stackhouse book, Dead to the World. On account of last weekend’s True Blood season finale (wasn’t it bootsie?), I need to get my vamp fix one way or another.
Got any plans tonight, fangbangers? What are you up to right now?
