Liquid -Almay -Age Essentials Makeup

I really like this, and unfortunately, it's on it's way out. Luckily, I recently scored 5 bottles at my local Big Lots for only $3.80/each! A far cry from the $14.99 regular price! I am very fair, with neutral undertones (NC15) and I can wear the two lightest shades, "Fair" which is pinker toned, and "Light Neutral" which is more yellow toned. They look very different from each other in the bottle, but apply almost the same (super pale). I love the pump bottle, the natural finish (not dewy, not totally matte), and medium coverage. I also appreciate having a little extra SPF (this has SPF15). I set my oily t-zone with Covergirl's Advanced Radiance powder, which pairs well with this. I find this to be very similar to Revlon's Age Defying foundation, which is not surprising, since Revlon owns Almay. When I run out, I will probably repurchase that one. If you like this, stock up while you can!



Eyeliner -Almay -Liquid Eyeliner

I got the black version of this liquid liner and I like it a lot! Very pigmented matte black that stays on all day. It did not sting my eye lids and I have sensitive skin- I guess it depends on your skin though. I like how the wand isn’t very long. It’s easier for me to control the line if the wand is shorter. My one wish is that the felt tip were softer or a brush tip. I prefer brush tips because I think they’re gentler and softer.

Lip Gloss -Almay -Liquid Lip Balm (all colors)

Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm- $6.29 @ Walgreens

Dry lips in particular will love these!!! This review is for all colors. I do think this is a really amazing product by Almay. It conditions my lips and provides a tinted high gloss look. Some shades will be more pigmented than the other, the darker ones give more color. These are so good! I have almost every color and have made countless re-purchases. I just ordered some more last night. Walgreens had a $4.00 off coupon with purchase of 2. My favorite colors are Cantaloupe, Just Plum Good, Blooming Balm( love a pretty, sheer pink and this one is my perfect), Apple a Day, Pink Pout(more pigmented than Blooming Balm and the color Kate Hudson wore in the promo pic) and Rosy Lipped. They are all sheer, and no substitute for a lipstick but they give your lips a nice amount of color and feel amazing!!! Just a flush of color and shine and they feel comfortable, lightweight and conditioning.

Description:
This product combines the lip conditioning care of a balm with the shiny color of your favorite gloss. Shiny color drenches lips with 2X hydration(compared to bare lips) as lip-loving conditioners provide 194% more moisture for softer, smoother lips over time. A lifesaver for your lips! Shiny color drenches lips. Non-sticky and hypoallergenic.Gluten free. Dermatologist tested

I absolutely love these. When I find them on sale I stock up because I use them almost every day. It is a fairly sheer tinted lip gloss/ lip treatment. These are as good as any lip balm, period! They really feel wonderful on my lips and they moisturize them like crazy. Never sticky, just soft and moisturized. They contain aloe, sunflower seed oil, beeswax, avocado oil, Vitamin E, rice bran wax, etc. (full list at the end of this review)

I keep these everywhere. In my purse, in my desk drawer, on my night table, in the living room in a small basket where I sit, I use them all the time because I can't stand to have nothing on my lips or to have them feeling dry. If I eat with them on, they will be gone, but my lips still feel super moisturized and still look nice and I don't mind re-applying. After about two hours the shine begins to fade, but I can still feel them on my lips after 3 -4 hours later unless I have eaten. It wears down gradually, and leaves my lips feeling moisturized to the end. Sometimes I put these on, let them sit a few minutes, then blot and apply a longer lasting more pigmented lipstick. I also use them in between applications of other products that suck the life out of my lips. I find the scent very nice and it's not overpowering, a very soft butter smell with a hint of vanilla, kind of like a cupcake that just came out of the oven.

Ingredients:
Polybutene, Petrolatum, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Tribehenin, C10 30 Cholesterol/Lanosterol Esters, Hydrogentated Polyisobutene, Cetyl PEG/PPG 10/1 Dimethicone, Hexyl Laurate, Polyglyceryl 4 Isostearate, Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Wax, Tocopheryl Acetate, Pentaerythrityl Tetraethylhexanoate, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Palmitic Acid, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Synthetic Wax, Aroma, Benzoic Acid, BHT, May Contain (+/-):, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides, Yellow 5 Lake, Red 6 Lake, Red 7 Lake, Carmine, Blue 1 Lake, Bismuth Oxychloride, Red 33, Yellow 6 Lake

Lip Treatments -Almay -Age Essentials Lip Treatment

I decided to give this a try based also on the positive revie of a YouTube video. It is mediocre at best. The smell is not pleasant. The package and size of the lip balm is very agreeable... I like the look of it (with the “core”) - it applies super well on sizeable lips. The texture isn’t great- it’s too paste-like and feels thick without feeling ultra-hydrating. 😕 I do love that it has spf and I will pop it into my stroller bag for use outside in the sun. That was the biggest selling point for me, as I am often out in the elements and sun with my toddler and am very cautious of our sensitive fair skin.


Mascara -Almay -Liquid Lash Extenders Mascara

New Edit: So Liquid Lash Extenders Mascara has lost a lot of points based on my experience yesterday as I spend the entire day being poked in the eye by a particle to small to see but huge in terms of pain. I am glad that this issue was resolved by simply removing the mascara without the need for eyedrops but I have fallen out of love for the mascara really hard. Although it gives me a natural fringe of lashes that lasts, the application is just difficult to get the results that I want as I need to comb away clumps before the tubes form, doable for great results, but messy and now literally a pain. I am able to say, however that although I teared and blinked all day, the mascara remained looking the same until night time, no smearing or fallout (once dry and in place, but lots to clean up during application) but it's now worth the time and trouble. The main draw for me, past the tubing aspect that I adore it that it came in a black-brown color.

I am so happy to report that the Revlon tubing mascara in the turquoise tube now comes in blackened - brown, and it s truly easy to apply low-mantance mascara that also gives great results with little effort. It is now my HG mascara and I will be stocking up. The brush for the Revlon mascara is much smaller than Almay's and does it all, darkening, lengthening and adding volume with the use of fibers I never see flaking and falling all over the place, issues I have with other lash products. I recommend the Revlon Multiplier over Liquid Lash Extenders Mascara but will leave my first thoughts below as a reference.

----------------------------


Edit: Just an update to say go ahead and wipe the wand, especially if the tube is new. I don't think tubing mascaras apply well if the layer is too thin, making this not the mascara to lay down a barely there base coat, but there is more than one needs on the spoolie when first opening the package and without cleaning it it is just messy to use and a little clumpy.

-----------------------------------------------------

As I have mentioned in past reviews, tubing mascara takes some getting used to but is well worth it for its wear-ability. I must admit that at first glance i did not have good results with Liquid Lash Extenders Mascara and actually looked back at my past tubing mascara reviews on for some application tips.

Trying again, I made long root to tip stokes without wiggling the brush or focusing on the tips of my lashes as both movements create uneven, clumpy tubes that look unnatural. I really like to load up open the primer for tubing mascara as alone as tubing mascaras don't create a lot of drama on their own. I even like to apply a tubing mascara over other formulas to keep the fallout at bay. This works well, except for the random chunk that seems to migrate when I least expect, leaving me looking sooty, wearing too much makeup that is all over the place or one of those smaller dogs with pigmented tears as I tend develop black eye snot in the corners of the eyes even the morning after, having properly removed my makeup at night.

Because the laying of mascara for me can add drama but is problematic, I was really happy to find that Liquid Lash Extenders Mascara seems to have enough of an effect that I can wear it alone. It lengthens without denying me volume, and I appreciate that after cleaning up my eye area after application I do not continue to have issues with flaking or smearing.

I am also really happy that this tubing mascara comes in brown-black as many only come in darker shades. I have dark hair, pale skin with warm/neutral undertones and dark blue/green blueberry eyes. I love brown-black mascaras thinking of them as "warm blacks" as a true black I find unnatural. Black may look like a nice makeup effect, but brown-black gives me the effect of nice eyelashes, a difference I find to be very important. The effect here is a a level of almost FX makeup in terms of a polished, envious no-makeup makeup look.

I am also happy to say that these tubes do come of easily with warm water, they also slip off easily with jojoba oil, a plus as I truly hate wetting my face with water as I makes my eczema-prone skin dry and unhappy feeling.

It is also worth noting that I don't clean the brush before application as too small amount seems to not form the tubes evenly also leaving an unfinished, clumpy look that oddly one can't build upon.

I am really happy to have found out from watching a video that this is a tubing mascara! I saw this in the store but did not think much of it, but was really excited when I found out. After playing around with it I do think this may be my day to day product. Because of the oil I add to my face to combat dryness, something that interferes with the application of most mascara because of oil migration to my lids, I don't have a lot of interest in wearing anything else for the time being and recommend giving Liquid Lash Extenders Mascara a chance.
