Before I start the picture of me has nothing to do with this blog post...I have been in all day today and was going to spend my time doing a make up look, which I did, but it was a total FAIL, so it's ended up in my recycle bin which is where it is staying, thankfully it doesn't look too bad on that pic as i'd changed the lipcolor and then put the pink carmex im about to talk about over the top (so it kind of relates a little bit i guess haha) but I still couldn't salvage it enough for it to be a full FOTD post!
Anyway todays post is about the above - Carmex moisture plus lipbalms, I just wanted to put up a quick review of these as I won them the other day in the lovely Kaushal's recent blog competition, I won all 3 shades they have - pink, peach and clear and was so excited as i've been wanting to get these for so long but never seen them in shops near me and was so close to ordering them from ASOS (rrp £4.99 each and I think in the US they are around $3 from the reviews i've read on makeupalley)
I only swatched the pink one as my battery then died on me you can see it's sheer, BUT the peach one is abit more pigmented not enough for it to be like a full lipcolour and the clear is errrm clear LOL!
They are just as moistourising as the regular carmex pots which I swear by the cherry has always been my fave but these have a vanilla scent which I must say is even better, I will be keeping the clear one by my bed to use on a night and before i put my make up on in the morning then will be making use of the peach and pink during the day and won't even have to worry about lip colour touch ups!
The lipstick like packaging makes them feel alot more sophisticated than your average balm and something you would even be good with taking on a night out, Who else has tried these? or if not what's your fave balm for the chapped lips winter loves to bring us?!
P.S I can't go without a bump pic also taken today (excuse my dusty mirror and the necklace hanging over haha)
