Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm (4 Shades) - Swatches and Review

May 15, 2013

Today I have a review on a new product from Almay that I am really excited to be reviewing. I received one of these from Klout and I loved it so much I bought three more recently. Almay has made an amazing liquid lip balm and everyone needs to try them out. I bought the shades: Apricot, Cantaloupe, Pink Pout, and Just Plum Good. See more photos and swatches below!

More information on the Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm:
This gorgeous Lip Balm combines lip color and care in one luscious package! It delivers the lip-loving conditioners of a balm with the shine and flirty color of your favorite gloss. Lips are drenched with 2x hydration and shine with sheer color. Plus, lips feel softer, smoother, and healthier over time.  

Smell: Vanilla, sugary, sweet smell. I really love the way they smell. It's not too strong, it's just enough. 

Application: They are really sheer and and feel amazing on the lips. It glides on smooth and instantly makes your lips feel moisturized. They are quite buildable when your talking about making the color pop more. One coat will just look like sheer color, but I was able to build up Pink Pout, Apricot, and Just Plum Good to make the colors more vibrant. Cantaloupe was too light for my skin tone and didn't look good. The lip balm lasted for about 4 hours and then color and balm was mostly gone. That's a pretty good wear time for a sheer lip balm. The gloss is a very thin light formula which makes applying it so easy.  There is no stickiness in this formula at all!

Recommend? Yes! At least try one and see how you like it. You should not be disappointed.

Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm retails for $5.99 each and can be found at drugstore or where Almay is sold. I found them at Rite-Aid.

Let me know if you will try these and what shade!
