Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm

When I first the display for the new Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm I thought I have to have them all! The colors looked so beautiful with amazing pigmentation. What in intrigued me the most was the fact that it was a liquid lip balm. Now I don't know about you but I had to see what the texture was and how it differed from other lip balms and etc. The collection consists of 10 different shades of various purples, pinks, corals and nudes and since they only had 8 at my local store I went ahead and got them all.

The colors I got were: Just Plum, Apple-a-day, Pink, Apricot, Cantaloupe, blooming, rosy lipped, and nudetrients.

Don't the colors look amazing??

The first thing I had to examine is the texture. The wand looks like your everyday lip gloss one. The texture is a thick, when I touch it with my finger its a little on the sticky side so if your accidently touch it you def will have to wash your hands after. I like the feeling it has on my lips but def don't like the stickiness of it. And to me they felt like lip gloss I really didn't understand how they were considered liquid lip balm??

So how does the pigmentation look?? 

I picked 3 of the colors to try out

The first color I chose was Pink. This color looks very pink and let me tell you it looks nothing like it does in that tube. If you look at my swatch it really only added a hint of pink on my lips and instead just looked like a clear gloss on.

So I grabbed apricot since it was a deep color on the bottle and thought it def will show up on me. Again it adds a hint of color on my lips but I was expecting amazing bright color but you can still see my natural lip pigmentation on my lips.

The last one I tried was the nudetriments one because it was the lightest one and thought this one will def show on my lips which are darker. Again, you can only see a slight pigmentation which def doesn't represent the color it appears on the bottle.

I also tried the Apple-a-day and Just plum but forgot to take pictures of those two and those being darker colors also showed little pigmentation. I am not sure if its because my lips are dark or what not but I think the pigmentation could be a lot better! Also another thing I want to add is they didn't last long either so I had to constantly re-apply the balm. Overall, I would have to pass on the Almay color + Care Liquid lip balm. If they had better pigmentation, better longeivity, and a more lip balm kind of texture. I honestly thought I was wearing lip gloss when I applied it. Bummed bc they were almost $6 each and I probably won't use them again.
