Yes to Carrots C Me Shine Lip Gloss Review



This lip product is 98% organic, that's the first thing that persuaded me to purchase this product at Target. Upon reading the back label I became even more intrigued; it is Paraben and Carmine free, no animal testing, and it is 100% naturally derived.  

Just a brief scientific lesson: Parabens are chemicals in a lot of cosmetic products that basically ensure effective preservation.  However over the years they have become very controversial because these same chemicals have been found in low concentrations of breast cancer tumors.  Carmine is a chemical that is basically used to give color to something to make it look fresh, however it also has been very controversial because small traces of scale insect and insect protein may be found in these products!

Now onto the review:  This product claims that it is nourishing and it provides shine; and upon applying it on my lips I was both impressed and disappointed. The product does make my lips glossy and shiny, and it doesn't feel sticky at all! It does provide a fairly good amount of color to the lips; pigmentation is pretty good considering it is a gloss. The product is moisturizing and does stay on for a fairly longtime without reapplying.  The only negative about this product is that is has a minty smell and taste -- a very unpleasant and unbearable minty taste almost medicine-like. Unfortunately in my opinion, the 1 con outweighs all the pros!
The lip gloss does retail for $6.49, I purchased it when it was on sale for less than $3 bucks. If you don't mind the very strong minty taste then I say go for it. It's organic, it looks good, and it is moisturizing!

  2. Your blog is so pretty! These glosses are so cute, how sheer are they? Also, I quite like minty tasting lip balms, but medicine is gross lol. Wish I still lived in the states like I did this summer :( I love Target.

  8. Hi there!
    Thank you for checking out my blog and leaving a comment. I love your blog layout, I had it too but it gave some of my bloggers problems of seeing my site so I removed it :(

    I like things that are minty, but I'm not so much a fan of tube lipgloss. Now following you back!
