Lip Balm + Lip Gloss = My New Best Friend!

Thanks to Almay's latest lip product, Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm, my lippy collection has grown even more.

I was actually really excited to try these out. Almay doesn't usually disappoint me, especially when it comes to their fab glosses and balms.  This particular product is a hybrid formula that has the pigment and shine of a gloss, and the texture and moisturizing properties of a lip balm.

That's right.  A hybrid lip product.  We've come so far.

As expected, I am head-over-heels in love with the balm. The colors are all pretty sheer.  My personal fave hue, Apple-A-Day, looks like a bright candy red in the tube (which looked a little scary to me!), but the result was just a nice red wash over my lips. It's sheer enough that I feel confident that I could apply it sans mirror if I needed to, yet pigmented enough to add a nice pop of color. You can also build up the color, like you would with a lipstick, so you can get whatever look you're going for.

Since this product also works like a balm, it feels amazing on lips.  Almost buttery. Love it!

Each tube is about $6. Definitely worth a try!
