Quickie Review - Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm

In December I got a great deal on Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balms. Rite Aid had them BOGO 1/2 price and a $5 off of 2 coupon magically appeared online. You know I go all soft and squishy for lip glosses (excuse me, liquid lip balms) and I really love a great deal. I was very excited to try these liquid lip balms and even bought some for the kiddo for Christmas. I picked up Rosy Lipped, Cantaloupe Cream, Pink Pout, Truffle Kiss and Just Plum Good. My local Rite Aid didn't have a huge selection by the time I went in. I've learned that you have to do your drugstore sale shopping on Sunday or Monday or you get leftovers! I did check the website and there are 10 colors total. A nice shade variety I think.

 These are just like most glosses as far as color pigment. It gives you just enough color to see but not so much that you get a blaze of color. They wear very nicely on the lips. The balms are very creamy, they don't have a taste but they do have a light, pleasant smell. They aren't sticky or thick -- just a nice medium consistency that allows maybe 4 - 5 swipes over the lips to give enough color for both top and bottom. I have worn them alone when I didn't want much more than a colored sheen but for times that I wanted more color, I've been using lip liners as a base and then the gloss on top.

I really like these and plan on getting more colors. I have my eye on Blooming Balm, Apricot Pucker and Apple A Day.

Have you tried Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balms? What did you think?
