Keep It Sheer with Carmex Sheer Tints


When you are a beauty blogger who has a weakness for bright and pigmented lip products, it takes a lot for a tinted balm to worm its way into your daily makeup bag. I honestly can’t remember the last time I left the house without one of my Carmex Moisture Plus balms*, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon.
 
The first Moisture Plus balm I tried was the Clear formula, and I loved how smooth it felt on my lips and the tingle that the camphor gave me. It isn’t as strong as something like Soap & Glory’s Sexy Motherpucker (fire ants on the lips, anybody?) but is definitely a noticeable tingle. This is something to keep in mind if that isn’t something you like in a balm, but I personally love how fresh and minty it makes my lips feel. The balm seems to actually sink into my lips rather than just sitting atop them, but still leaves them glossy and healthy looking.

 
I was elated when the Sheer Peach Tint and Sheer Pink Tint landed on my desk, and I was pleasantly surprised that the colours are buildable and are reminiscent of a typical MLBB (my lips but better) shade. I always have one of the tinted Moisture Plus balms in my bag for those times where I can’t decide on a bright lippy or my lips are feeling particularly dry or in need of some attention.
 
Even though I really love all of them, I wear the Peach Sheer Tint more often than the others, so I'd have to say that it is my favourite of the bunch. They really are wonderful balms that I highly recommend, and for only $8.99 I urge you to try them for yourself and let me know how you go! They are available at Priceline and other pharmacies in Australia, and I believe they are available internationally as well so I'd love to hear from some International readers too!
 
What is the best lip balm you’ve tried so far?
Are you a fan of tinted balms?

*Provided for consideration, but they really are my favourite balms! Honesty, always.

  1. I think I've seen these around. Now I want to try them! Lip balms usually disappoint, but hopefully these won't. :)

  3. I love tinted lip balms! I think it's great to be able to protect your lips while giving them a hint of colour. Under $10 is awesome too.

  4. Tinted lipbalms don't really faze me. More often than not, I put a lipstick over the top. I always need colour! It's all out or nothing baby! :P

    1. @Aryanny I tend to love a bright lip more than a tinted product I agree, but these have really changed my mind ;P

  6. Hahahaha, oh it's like you read my mind... I've been using the pink all week, and it quickly wormed it's way into my "can't leave the house without these staples" makeup bag that lives in my handbag. I got it out this morning when I got to work and thought to myself, "damnnnnnn I really love this balm, everyone needs to own one."

    1. @Sarah how good it is?! So smooth and easy to put on without matching it with anything.

    1. @shortylegsbeauty Maybe try the Peach and it could change your mind? haha. I don't fancy a lot of lip balms, most of the time they don't work for me but these make my lips feel so good :) Looking forward to your balm post!
