4out of 5

Sizing: Feels half size too small

Width: Feels true to width

Pros: Stylish, Versatile, Cute

Cons: Tight around calf

Best Uses: Going Out, Cold Weather, Office, Travel, Date Night, Casual Wear

Describe Yourself: Mom, Stylish, Fun

I LOVE my boots and wear them with everything! One of the things I love the most is that they are SO versatile! They look fantastic for a night out with s short skirt or under jeans for everyday wear! They are fantastic!

The only caution I give to those buying them is that they are tight on the calves. I have pretty thin legs, but I am pregnant so I am a bit swollen and they are tight on me right now. I hope that will change after pregnancy. However, I would caution that even with an average sized calf, I suspect they would be a bit tight.

I would happily recommend these boots, but only with the caution about the calfs!

closed GIVEAWAY & Review of Carmex Moisture Plus w/ tint

WOWZA! I love when I get to join groups that give me the opportunity to try and review products AND do product giveaways for you, my loyal readers! It is an added bonus when the group is associated with products I already love! So, I can say I was completely ecstatic when I was asked to join the Carmex® Blog Squad!

I have always been a big Carmex® fan since I was young, but I really only used the tubs of original Carmex® and occasionally the tubes. I had no clue they had so many different products though! So, when I received the first item to review I was pleasantly surprised to see it was something I had not even heard of yet. I was sent 2 Carmex® Moisture Plus ultra Hydrating lip balm, one with a sheer pink tint and one with a sheer peach tint. Check them out:

First off, from a visual perspective, I loves the packaging. It seems sleek and inviting to me. I could not wait to open up the first package and test it out. Before I tell you about it though, I want to mention a few of the awesome aspects of these products. They have vitamin E & Aloe, there is sunscreen/SPF 15 included, and they are made with a slant tip. I was grateful to see the SPF listed right on the front because I have a child allergic to sunscreen and that let me know right off that he could NOT try this (you would be surprised at how often that is not easily posted on packages).

Now, I tried both of the tints out. Both tints were a bit more color than I expected. They are subtle color, but I expected it to be even less or more subtle color/tint than they are. I am still not sure how I feel about the tints. Neither of the colors really was great on my skin, neither was horrible either. So, by themselves on my lips I was a bit unsure of whether I liked the tints. However, the lipstick I use in my everyday life is very dry and I usually put a chap stick over or under it. When I used either of these tints over my lipstick, they actually looked great and each tint gave just enough of it's own color to make my lipstick look slightly different-I liked that it mixed up my colors a bit!

As far as moisturizing, these cannot be beat! My skin is overall, and my lips particularly are quite dry with the change of season going on here now. When I put these Moisture Plus lip balms on, I feel like it is bathing my lips in wonderful moisture! They really live up to their name of being ultra hydrating! I adore how they feel on my lips and kept wishing Carmex® had lotion like this so my whole body could feel like my lips do with this on! SOOOO nice!! And as an added bonus, that moisturizing feel lasted a long time. I did not find myself reapplying over and over! (By the way-I looked on their website here and found that they DO make lotion and now I cannot wait for a chance to try that out!!!)

Overall, I really liked these 2 Carmex® lip balms, though the tints were a bit too much for me and did not quite match my skin tone. However, even with the tints, I would still wear this lip balm and loved the chance to try it out!
