Anybody NOT love these? My gosh!! These are so excellent!! I do 90% Of my shopping at my Walmart whom only had two shades in stock, but I picked up this lip balm thinking it was s lip gloss and enjoyed the shade of 900 Apricot, when I got home I realized what it was, I was shocked because I am a huge lip balm junky!!! This has a sheer color that still adds that pop of gloss and color to your lips while being good and moisturizing for them.. I do plan to get the whole collection!!!
I love this! It is good to use for a lip moisturizer and adds a little bit of color. Not too much color, and just enough moisture!
I have this in two shades: Blooming and Cantaloupe. Blooming is your run-of-the-mill light-medium pink. It adds the sheerest bit of color to lips and a nice sheen. Cantaloupe is a light, creamy orange shade. The name is very fitting to the shade. It gives lips a nice coral flush and has the same qualities of Blooming.
This product is quite comfortable on the lips. It is lightweight and moisturizing. They don't accentuate lines or grab on dryness unless my lips are excessively dry and chapped. They add a little something to my every day makeup without being too full on and keeps my lips hydrated. I really do quite enjoy the formula and might purchase more after my Project 10 Pan is finished and I clear some space out of my stash.
The wear time is a little short but nothing I can't deal with. Since these products are sheer, I don't need a mirror to reapply on the go. The formula is thinner but I like that as I mush my lips together compulsively and don't like sticky glosses.
For the price I recommend you pick one up and keep in your purse, even to just apply after the day's lipstick has worn off for a little pick-me-up. Keeps your lips hydrated with a sheer application of color.
This was my very first Almay product and I am very satisfied! I bought two colors: rosy lipped and just plum good. Rosy lipped is like a pink nude color while just good plum is like a berry plummy red color. I am very picky with lipglosses so I am very suprised that I like them so much. I got them at CVS for 5.99 bogo 50% off. Good price from drugstore, a lot of drugstore cosmetics are getting over priced these days. Anyways, onto the review! The Pros: light vanilla scent (Yum), sheer wash of color (buildable), not sticky at all! (is like a thick lipbalm), shiny, moisturizing, nice packaging (I like the doe foot applicator, picks up just the right amount of product and is small so it is precise. I have small lips so it works good for me :). Cons: Nothing! I am very impressed, I have never gave any other lip gloss 5 stars except the NYX butter gloss and the Revlon super lustrous lipgloss (new one in round tube). I love these and would totally repurchase! If lip gloss didn't expire, I would stock up like crazy!
This has so much product in it! 7.1 ml!! That's two times as much as the revlon glosses! Revlon glosses are glittery and bad tasting! My favorite glosses in the world! Going to buy all of them!!
I love all types of gloss, so long as they're good quality and work well for me. These turned out to be okay but not a favorite.
Packaging is your typical tube/doe foot. The tube is a touch shorter and fatter than some, which I like. Using a super long wand to apply gloss feels almost like a safety hazard sometimes! As others have said, texture is pretty light. It's not that heavy, sticky stuff but it definitely has shine. I purchased pink pout (fuschia pink), blooming balm (light mauve-y pink) and cantaloupe cream (light coral). The scent is a lightly sweet vanilla scent, which I enjoy. No flavor and no perfumey taste. The shades are where I had the biggest issue. Pink pout is really pretty. A sheer blossom pink that's neither too bright or too opaque. The other lighter shades were a disappointment. I had anticipated pigments that while light and sheer, provide a wash of color but somehow they had what almost looked like mica to boost/support the pigment (?) I suppose. The result was my lips looked frosted. So strange since they didn't look shimmery in the tube. So I'll be giving away the lighter shades.
As for texture, staying power isn't very good. Also, since these are not one of the thicker glosses, I can't see this as a good choice for those who have drier lips or are prone to flaking. They're just not thick or emollient enough imo. But if you're looking for something that falls between a gloss and a balm without a bunch of fancy extras like plumping, super long wear, etc., this would be a good choice. I will likely not repurchase these. As far as balm glosses go, I prefer Fresh lip treatments.
I just got this today and I already love it! I picked up the shade Blooming, a light pink. The smell is very pleasant. It doesn't make my lips feel sticky, and is actually moisturizing. I just love the way it looks, sheer color with shine. I can't wait to get more!
These smell like cupcakes, and feel super moisturizing:) they're pretty pigmented to be a lip balm kind of thing too.
I have the color Cantaloup Creme, and I think it looks really pretty on, and I really like it. I love the smell too
