Hey beautiful gals,
Today is the turn of my latest love, it’s a hybrid product from Almay in the shade Blooming.
Product Claims: Almay color+care liquid lip balm drenches lips with 2x hydration. Sheer shiny color combines the comfort and care of a balm with the flirty color and shine of a gloss. Instantly more than doubles lip hydration so lips feel twice as moisturized after use. Nearly triples lip hydration when worn throughout the day. Nourishes lips with oils like avocado and Vitamin E. Available in 10 shades.
Price: $ 6.49 for 7.1 ml
My experience with Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm in Blooming:
Undoubtedly, Blooming is my most favorite lip balm nowadays. This hybrid formula moisturizes like a lip balm, shines like a lip gloss and provides pigment also. They just give a light wash of color to the lips; you cannot expect high pigmentation even from darker shades. In the tube, they seem to be highly pigmented colors but on the lips these are very light. I am afraid; beauties with pigmented lips would not be able to use most of the shades from this range. Blooming gives a very fresh and bubbly look. I love it purely because of its rich and moisturizing formula.
The texture of the gloss is thick but still it provides a very light weight and comfortable feel. It’s not very sticky but it’s sticky enough to stay intact on the lips for a long time. Blooming would stay for a long time as much as 4 hours on your lips even with light munching and sipping. It comes in a tube packaging with a doe shaped applicator. Just wanted it to be a little bigger and better, so it picks a lot of product every time for a quick application.
Blooming is a light bubble gum pink color that gives a wet look to the lips when applied. After some time of application the glossy finish fades a little bit but the color tinge stays intact. Due to its stickiness, the lips stay hydrated for a long time even after all the color has gone. This is surely the longest wearing lip balm I have ever used. Almay liquid lip balm is an excellent lip product, especially when you are fond of natural shades with tonnes of hydration. I am extremely happy with its performance.
