So, I know that my blog is primarily nail polish, but I received this Almay Liquid Lip Balm from Klout, and I really wanted to share! I have been searching for swatches everywhere, and couldn't find any, so I wanted to put a swatch out there for the people who are searching for them!
So here are some photos, swatches, and my opinion of Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm in Cantaloupe!
It comes with a doefoot applicator, and is quite easy to apply. It is somewhat like a lip gloss in application but is a little thicker than a gloss, and on the lips has more of a lip balm feel. Its a great hybrid between the two with a subtle hint of color! They are a tiny bit sticky, but in a lip balm sort of way, and if my hair were down it would stick to my lips, so I will have to remember to wear my hair up with this one. I am not sure about the moisturizing effects, as I have only had this since this morning, but I am quite happy with this, and I would probably purchase the pink shade(Pink Pout) next.
The doefoot applictor:
The swatch on the back of my hand. it has translucent hint of color, but it doesn't translate to bright orange on my lips. It gives my lips a subtle coral tint, and if I were to build up for the bottle color my lips would have a very thick layer of product. It can be buildable, but I probably wouldn't, if I wanted a more opaque shade similar to this I would go with a Lip Tar. This color is beautiful sheer.
Here is the video that Almay has posted about them, which seems to be the only information on the internet available beyond this blog post with a swatch of Pink Pout!
What do you think about this lip balm in lipgloss form? I am getting into this hype!
