Frugal Friday - Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm - Review & Lip Swatches

Today I will be discussing the Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm.  This product retails for around $6 depending on the store.

From Almay:
  • A lifesaver for your lips! NEW Almay Color + Care™ Liquid Lip Balm combines the lip conditioning care of a balm with the shiny color of your favorite gloss. Shiny color drenches lips with 2X hydration* as lip-loving conditioners provide 194% more moisture for softer, smoother lips over time. Non-sticky. gluten free. Hypoallergenic. Dermatologist tested. 
I own the shades Pink Pout, Lilac Love, Apricot Pucker, and Rosey Lipped.

Since these are balms, they are not very pigmented and don't last long on my lips.  The following lip swatches required 4 dips into the tube.

Almay Liquid Lip Balm - Pink Pout
Almay Liquid Lip Balm - Lilac Love
Almay Liquid Lip Balm - Apricot Pucker
Almay Liquid Lip Balm -Rosy Lipped

Overall I like the Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balms.  These glossy balms feel good on the lips and are not sticky.  They are soft and buttery and at the same time are very shiny.   However, I wouldn't say that they are a "must have" unless you can get them on sale and you have coupons.  I can tell you that with coupons and sales, I didn't pay more than $1 for any of these. *Side note: Follow me on Instagram to check out my newly developed couponing skills! :)

As an alternative to these, if you're willing to pay a few more dollars, I like the L'Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinary Lip Colors much better.  They feel a little more "balmy" and have much better color payoff.

Have you tried these liquid lip balms?
