Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm

Almay Color Care Liquid Lip Balm

Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm is new this summer and comes in ten shades.

So this is my first experience with an Almay lip product I think! Isn’t that weird? These Liquid Lip Balms are just that – they have the conditioners that a lip balm has but also the shine and fun colors of a lip gloss. They contain vitamin E, avocado oil and a blend of “exotic” nourishing oils as well.

They are hypoallergenic, gluten-free and dermatologist tested.

Overall: To me they felt nice on the lips but not really any more moisturizing than a normal lip gloss does. They feel comfortable, not sticky and have no discernible scent or taste. I did have to go back into the tube and dip a few more times than normal to get the amount of color I wanted. A lot of the product gets wiped off on the tight fitting inside-wand area. They are on the more sheer, shiny side rather than being super pigmented, but they’re still pretty. My favorite shades here are Lilac Love and Pink Pout.

Availability: Drugstores.

Pricing: $5.99 for 0.24 oz.

    I haven’t tried any Almay lip products either. Reasonable price on these!

    I don’t think I’ve gotten anything from Almay in over 10 years. Wow! The packaging on the glosses is pretty nice! My favorite of these is Lilac Love! :)

    I actually don’t think I have ever tried an Almay product! Some of these colors are cute.

    These looked really cool in the tube but I’m not so into how they look on the lips

    I have Truffle Kiss and I love it! It’s the perfect color for me, and not at all drying. I don’t use lip gloss for moisture, so I can’t really comment on that as my lips are already moisturized when I put it on.

    I really love these liquid lip balms. I have 4 colors and want more. I find they smell like vanilla but have no discernible taste. I can use them in place of lip balm in a pinch but I wouldn’t say they are moisturizing. I have the most pigmented colors I think, and while they are not opaque they do have better color payoff than these.

    My friend gave me this as part of my birthday gift. I’m sad I can’t use it since I only buy and use cosmetics NOT tested on animals. Too bad, if only they were cruelty free..
