If you're looking for a fun alternative to a classic lip balm I found just the thing for you. The Almay Color Care liquid lip balms. As you can tell by their names, they are liquid lip balms. It's the first time I ever tried a lip balm in a lipgloss tube and form but I must say I like it!
As I mentioned previously these lip balms come in a lipgloss tube and have a sponge tip applicator. They're supposed to have the benefits of both a lipgloss (shininess and color) and a lip balm (moisturizing). At first I thought that was weird and looked at them as regular lip glosses but they're so soft and smooth and buttery! They're non-sticky and they feel so good on the lips! The only downside for me: the funky smell.
"900 Apricot Pucker"
The first one I purchased is called Apricot Pucker and it's a light orange shade. It's very natural and it's not that noticeable on the lips.
"500 Pink Pout"
The next one is called Pink Pout which is a shiny and transparant pink. It looks a lot like "Apricot Pucker" when applied to the lips. If I had known this in advance I would have purchased one of those two.
"100 Just Plum Good"
The last and third one I got is Just Plum Good which is the darkest color of the three I got. It's also the most noticeable on the lips but again very subtle.
Apricot Pucker / Pink Pout / Just Plum Good
If you're into subtle and natural looking lip colors just like me, these will definitely be something for you. They add a nice shine to the lips with just a little hint of color. They moisturize the lips and keep them soft and hydrated for a couple of hours. The Almay Color Care lip balms cost $4,99 (7,1ml) but are not available here in Belgium :(
