After reading Caitlin's post on Chrysanthemum about tinted Carmex a few days ago, I knew I had to get my hands on these babies. Especially as the weather starts to get cooler and my normally dry lips become uncomfortably dry and chapped, lip balm is a must and tinted lip balm is an added and very welcomed bonus.

I love both but my favorite of the two is the peach one. These lip balms apply smoothly, are really moisturizing, and have fairly good pigmentation. They have a slight vanilla scent that masks the traditional medicated Carmex smell but once the product is applied to your lips, the vanilla scent disappears rather quickly while the medicated smell lingers a little bit longer. There is also a slight tingling sensation, much like the original Carmex formula.
I've been reaching for these non-stop since I got them, and they are a great alternative to lipstick when you still want a little bit of color but need more moisturization.
