Almay Liquid Lip Balms in Nudetrients and Just Plum


When I spotted these in CVS on holiday, I knew I had to have them. Not only am I a huge lip balm junkie, but I also saw Estee from Essiebutton speak about them in her Canadian haul before I went away and thought they sounded great.They were on buy one get one half off so I bought two in the shades Nudetrients and Just Plum . 

I really like the design of the packaging on these. They look really simple and chic which is what attracts me the most. I don't like it when a company tries to go to gimmicky and it ends up looking tacky. Needless to say Almay is an American brand so I have never tried any of their products before but the quality at first sight looks great.



The balms are applied with a doe-foot applicator and come off quite sheer. I almost wish that I was brave enough to pick up a slightly darker colour than the one I have. You could guarantee if I had they would have been so pigmented that I never would have pulled it off. Heyho!



They are pretty comfortable to wear in all honesty so I do quite like them. It's only when it comes to eating that it can get a little messy. Everything seems to stick to the product and then when you try and lick it off it just gets all sticky and uncomfortable. This is the exact reason why I don't tend to wear lip glosses and these are a very similar formulation. Although they are a little more moisturising, they still have that glossy, marginally sticky quality that I find rather annoying. Having said that, if you are a lip gloss lady these are definitely going to be up your street. 

They are the better end of 'lip glosses' that I have tried and I will definitely continue to use them but whether I would repurchase them again (if I could) would be a different matter. I much prefer to get my shine from something like a lip lacquer but it was definitely worth trying out.

Have you given the liquid balms a try yet? Let me know in the comments below

  3. These look so different on your lips to how they do in the tube. I expected the red one to be a lot more pigmented. They do give a lovely shine though xx

    1. That's what I thought. I could have got away with buying a darker shade.. but you can guarantee that if i did it wouldn't have been sheer like this and I wouldn't have been able to pull it off. lol. I do love the shine though! xxo
