Just about everyone loves Carmex lip balm so fans will be thrilled that it is now a) in a stick and b) tinted. The tints are really rather lovely – they give a good wash of colour that leaves an impression of pink or peach on the lips without overpowering them with dodgy colour. The actual colour inside isn’t well represented on the outside – the shades look a little bit wishy-washy on the tubes, but they’re actually pretty shades that anyone could wear. They do give a good dose of moisture – I personally don’t like anything vanilla flavoured and find these a little strong but if you like vanilla, it’s a no-brainer!
They’re £4.49 each, and there is also a clear one. They’re in Boots now and a very handy addition to an autumn makeup bag.
