I bought the Carmex Tinted Lip Balm in Peach for 220 Taiwanese yuan ($7) at Watsons. It's a little pricier than most of the other drugstore lip balms here, but I don't regret it!
The lip balm offers you a subtle, tinted sheen that gives your lips a natural, healthy colour (unlike some of the other tinted lip balms are a bit too vibrant and unnatural-looking).
There's a slight tingly sensation when you apply the lip balm and it smells a bit sweet, which I like. But most importantly, it moisturises well!
I'm quite happy in terms of packaging. My expectations aren't high, as it's a drugstore brand. The spin-out container makes it easier to use than from a pot or a tube.
This product is great! I have it in the peach color and I love it! My lips can get flaky in winter, so I put it on every night before bed and wake up with amazingly soft lips. I've tried many lip products and this by far is one of the best. I will definitely be repurchasing.
I bought this in peach. I would have picked plum but they only had clear and this. Anyway, I like everything about it except the color. The tint is very sheer and doesn't show up on my lips. I picked this up at CVS on sale for 99 cents, plus there was a coupon in the Sunday paper, so no big whoop.
Great tinted lip balm. I'm NC35 and I bought this in Plum. It's a lovely dark wine color. I just do one swipe on my lower lip and that's enough to give my lips a little color. Like some other reviewers. it can be more dramatic by adding more. It's nice and moisturizing. Everything you could ask for in a tinted lip balm!
Okay, let me say I LOVE this product.I usually dont wear lip stick b/c i hate the waxy heavy feeling so my go to are lip balms..
I have right now the peach shade and plum and I love them both. I was a little skeptical when I bought the peach because of my skin tone, (last time I checked I was NC45 from mac but I may be a little darker now) it looked perfect it gives a slight peachy pink very neutral looking!
As for the plum, it is very pigmented so If i want a flush of color I swipe it on once and it is great. For a more dramatic look I swipe it multiple times. Again GREAT color for my skin tone.
As for moisture aspect it does moisturize your lips. It leaves my lips so soft! I love this thing
I look forward to buying Pink and berry and when i do ill let you guys know...
THIS IS HG FOR ME!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the peach shade! The colour that this lip balm actually is, is not the same as the shade shown on the outer packaging! Its a much deeper peachy-pink.....and it is gorgeous. In my eyes the colour matches perfectly with a clinique lipstick I used to own - this is a fraction of the price and looks just as good. As it is a lip balm i leaves my lips feeling great and the colour lasts for ages. Also looks great with gloss over the top. I have bought a few of these to put away for presents for my sisters! A really great find if you are looking for a good lip balm and a natural looking lip colour!
I was really excited to try this out after reading all the positive reviews about this product and got it from Boots for around £5 - which is fairly expensive compared to other similar products.
The packaging is nice and the lid clicks on securely.
When I put it on my lips, it gave a really artificial pinkish colour and it smelt really medicated which goes after a while. After reapplying it a couple of times my lips came out in a rash, with little dots all over my lips..
So I discontinued using it for a few days but the rash continued to get worse.
Today (4 days later), I woke up and my lips were swollen and they are so sensitive and uncomfortable.
It was such a disappointment because I was so excited to use it! :(
I have super dry, flaky lips that I bite when I'm nervous. This glides on smoothly with absolutely no grit or stickiness and sinks in very nicely, no matter how chapped my lips are. The peach tint is sheer but very buildable and flattering and just enough to make my lips look healthier and more even-toned. It has that subtle medicated "Carmex" scent but it goes away. I love the skinny tube; makes it easy to apply and fits right in my pocket. Very good tinted lip balm.
I was trying to buy the clear version of this product but mistakenly bought the sheer peach tint. The color looks rediculous! I would suggest that you stick with the clear and add your own lip gloss over top of it if you want to add color.
Wow, amazing. I got the "peach" tint and this is such a hydrating lip treatment and it gives great color. Will buy more.
EDIT: I got another one in "Berry" and I really like it!
