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.
Rosy Lipped, Pink Pout, Just Plum, Lilac Love
Rosy Lipped is a soft peachy pink.
Pink Pout is a medium bright pink.
Just Plum is a deep plum/pink.
Lilac Love is a pale pinkish lilac with blue shimmer.
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.
Pricing: $5.99 for 0.24 oz.
