Review: Almay Color+Care Liquid Lip Balm in Cantaloupe Cream

Hi beautiful!

I hope you all had a great week! I'm not ready for summer to be over, I have so much to get done before the school starts! Anywhos, I went to Ulta and finally found the  Almay Color+Care Liquid Lip Balms. I was super excited when I saw it because I have heard so many great things about this moisturizing lip glosses! I picked up the shade Cantaloupe Cream because I felt like it was a very pretty kind of coral/peachy shade that would be perfect for the summer as well as spring! I wasn't expecting them to be super pigmented like a liquid lipstick so I thought it would be a perfect natural shade.

I purchased one for $5.99+tax at my local Ulta, but since I purchased other things that totaled more than $10, I was able to use a $3.50 off $10 purch. coupon that they sent me with their catalogue, so make sure you become a member to get sent those great deals! Otherwise, there's always a coupon on their website so you can always go to to check that out.

They state that this product is highly moisturizing and hydrating for your lips because of Vitamin E and oils such as avocado oil. It is also stated that this product will add color and is also in fact gluten-free, and hypoallergenic.

*On the website, the color of "Cantaloupe Cream" is not true to color. The website shows a really vibrant and bright coral shade, but below is a more peachy, almost milky peach/coral color.

#700 in the shade Cantaloupe Cream
The color swatched on my wrist is a beautiful and fun peachy shade, almost coral. Before blending it out the color pigmentation appears very rich, dense, and creamy. 
When I blended it it because more sheer and very shiny, especially when worn on the lips. It is still the peachy/corally shade.  

This is the applicator. It is a soft and basic doe-footed applicator.

Almay is known for having hypoallergenic products, which is a total bonus for me. I didn't have any kind of reaction to this product and I love it! It is super moisturizing, and the color is very sheer and light, but noticeable. The sheer peachy/coral shade really brightens up my face giving me a somewhat "glow". I feel as though this is perfect for school, or just going out since it is more on the natural side. It really is true to what it says, a liquid lip balm. I can't wait to purchase more!

Until Next Time,
