Yes to Carrots - C Loves Color Lip Tints

I went to Target yesterday to pick up another Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm since I lost the one I use all the time. Well, actually I think the washer and/or dryer ate it, but regardless, I can't find it anywhere!

While walking through the aisles, I found an endcap with a brand called Yes to Carrots. I had seen these once before when I was in Beauty Brands, and had always been curious about the quality. I decided that I would pick up a set of the three lip tints, since they were only $4.99 for the set, where Burt's Bees can be about the same price for a single lip balm.




I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the product. The tubes are very similar to those for Burts Bees - very small, thin, and easy to keep in your purse. The actual product itself reminded me of the BB's as well: a very thick consistency with a hint of mint and shimmer to each of the tubes.

As described on the Yes to Carrots website:
