Carmex released a new range last year and once again, I fell in love.
Top: Pink Bottom: Peach
The formula is smooth, creamy and so moisturising. They give the same tingly/cooling feeling to the lips as the original carmex formula but with an added twist: a hint of sheer colour. As with the original Carmex lip balms, these also have SPF15 in the formula - always a plus! They work as a great base to a lipstick or on their own and while the staying power of the colour is not very long-lasting, I don't find this to be an issue as you can reapply quickly without needing a mirror as you might with lipstick.
Left: Peach Right: Pink
I have built up the colour quite heavily for the above swatches as they are so sheer. The colours are not all that different, the peach is a little more orange/coral toned but could still be classed as a pink-ish shade.
I reach for my Carmex Moisture Plus tubes quite regularly and have stopped using the original Carmex lip balms! The Carmex Moisture Plus range is available at Boots stores and can be purchased at £4.49 a tube.
Have you tried the Carmex Moisture Plus range? Would you use these over the original lip balms?
