Almay Color+Care Liquid Lip Balm

Hello Everyone!
The Almay Color+Care Liquid Lip Balm is a relatively new product in the beauty industry. I purchased one for myself to try about 5 months ago and I really loved the formula and the look of the glossy balm on my lips. I decided it would be a great product for my pro kit.






































I chose 5 shades to put in my kit. I wanted a wide variety of colors so the above picture gives you an idea of the shade range I went with. I believe at the time of purchasing these, they were buy 1 get 1 50% off and at $5.99 each it was such a steal.

These are the shades I chose from left to right:

1. "600 Blooming"- a really classic baby pink.
2. "500 Pink"- a mid toned hot pink
3. "800 Rosy Lipped"- a mid toned nude (my 3rd tube of this color)
4. "950 Truffle"- warm brown with slight shimmer
5. "900 Apricot"- a bright coral/orange


I think that using a liquid lip balm instead of a normal gloss is a great way to keep your lips hydrated. These lip balms are so comfortable. They are not sticky and do not separate on the lips. I also think the color pay off is great! I will sometimes just use a lip liner and one of these as a completed lip look or I will layer over a matte lipstick to give the lip a nice sheen.

Overall I would say you can't go wrong with this product. Its cheap, comfortable and really pretty. I have seen these on sale a few times over the past few months so keep your eye out for the BOGO. ;)

These can be purchased at ULTA or any drugstore. As far as I can tell there are 10 shades in this range.

Let me know if you have a shade not shown above that you love!

I hope this was helpful :)
