Win $100! Beauty Road Test: Almay Color + Care Liquid Lip Balm

Your new favorite summer beauty product.


Ladies, rejoice: I have your new favorite summer beauty product. (I also have $100 to give away but more on that later.) The new Almay Color + Care liquid lip balms are THE BOMB.


Pictured here from left: “Blooming Balm,” “Cantaloupe Cream,” and “Just Plum Good.”

These babies are ultra-rich and ultra moisturizing — just what you want in a lip balm — but they also come in an array of 10 really pretty shades. I tried the three colors above, and can see myself rotating them all summer long (and fall, and winter, and spring, for that matter!). They’re great for a casual weekend look (though I think they’d work well for a dressier occasion too), especially if you’re headed somewhere like a BBQ or even the pool, and don’t want something too overdone. They’re very sheer, and on me, the “Blooming Balm” is the most “natural” looking; just a hint of color and a lot of pretty gloss. My favorite is the “Just Plum Good” — I thought it would be too dark judging by the bottle, but it goes on beautifully, giving a glossy, just-bitten look.


Self portraits are hard! I’m just wearing a little BB cream, bronzer, and mascara. Weekend ready!


On my hand from top: “Just Plum Good,” “Blooming Balm,” and “Cantaloupe Cream.”

Another awesome thing about Almay Color + Care liquid lip balms — they’re totally affordable! They retail for $5.99 each. I know. And hey, speaking of MONEY … Almay gave us a $100 Visa Gift card to give away to one of you guys! You can buy a couple of these and still have plenty of moola left over to treat yourself to a cute new weekend outfit (or something else!).

  1. My weekend look is the same casual look I do for the week: hair in a french twist, light smoky eye, and lipstick, jeans, a great t-shirt and wedges.

  2. I get my weekend look by semi airdrying my hair then blow drying it, slipping into a cute and fitted pair of jeans, a loose colorful top, and then dabbed on mascara, lipgloss, and using my Almay CC cream (which is tinted a little bit and has moisturizer and sunscreen which is so awesome). 🙂

  3. I get my favorite weekend look by throwing on a bit of mascara (black, unless I'm lucky enough to have some blue or pink around), scrunch up my hair into bouncy curls and climb into some comfy jeans and a nerdy t-shirt 🙂

  4. I like to keep it simple by using a natural look to my makeup. Usually I wear a natural colored eyeshadow in beige and brown, a little mascara and lip gloss.

  5. My weekend look tends to be casual.
    Shampoo light gel, minimal makeup have to have mascara and liner.
    Dressy jeans light jacket with boots.
    Thank youl

  6. My weekend look is to be as comfortable as possible. I would wear an A-line black skirt, gray blazer, shiny black accessories. I would have my hair in a messy bun and peach eyeshadow, bronzer on cheeks, and strawberry/peach lipgloss and cute sandals or wedges.

  7. my latest weekend go to look is a high pony fishtail braid, some tinted moisturizer and hot pink gloss. I've been wearing alot of nike spandex shorts and colorful tanks this summer, it's been so darn hot!

  8. I get my favorite weekend look by picking out my favorite chic and comfy outfit, match it with my favorite eye shadow colors and lip gloss. These colors look great on you and I love them. Can't wait to give these Almay Liquid lip palm a try.

  9. For my weekend look, I blow dry my hair straight and put it in a ponytail, apply some sunscreen and light makeup, then put on a cute shirt and shorts and my favorite sandals.

  10. My weekend look is mostly casual because I do a lot of outdoor things. I may throw my hair up in a pony tail or throw on a baseball cap and add put on some liner and mascara.

  11. My weekend look has to be fast and easy: just a bit of concealer, mascara and always moisturizer with SPF. I usually go with a light lipstick and a hint of gloss. I try not to blow dry or curl my hair…just let it dry on its own on weekends to give it and me a break. Jeans and a tshirt are my go-to weekend wardrobe

  12. I get my favorite weekend look by keeping it simple- hair down and a little bronzer and lip gloss…during the summer the heat will have my hair flat and make up melted right off after a little time playing with the kids- so I keep it stress free 🙂

  13. Well just putting real clothes on and make-up is a change for me on weekends. During the week I am usually wearing lounge pants/pj's and a t-shirt around the house.

  14. I'm a stay at home mom so typically my weekends are spent out on the town with my kiddo and husband so to get my favorite look I just throw on jeans and tshirt and some lipgloss and mascara

  15. I have two basic outfits that I wear and they both include twill pants and a v-neck knit shirt of some sort. LOL So…in order to snazzy it up for the weekend, I like to play around with my jewelry. I have earthy looks, sparkly looks, or simply/casual/fun looks. Add a fun or funky bandana to the mix and have fun!

  16. By locking the bathroom door and having one of the older siblings watch the little kids. They can be quite persistent and loud!!! Alone time in the bathroom minus the kids screaming.
