I’m the world’s most boring lipstick-girl. I find one shade I like and stick with it for eternity without ever trying anything new. Almay sent me a bunch of lipsticks from their new line Smart Shade Butter Kiss…. and five sets to give away to TCP readers! I. Can’t. Get. Enough.
I think my lipstick mishaps boil down to a) not knowing what color to choose and b) the textures are either too dry or too sticky. Can anyone else relate? This Almay line solves both those problems. It’s super easy to choose a shade. They’re named after the color and skin tone they look best with (no confusing names that don’t mean anything about the color!) and the texture is incredibly smooth. Like, well, butter!!!! The hydration is extra important for me during the winter because my lips tend to get so dry from just walking around outside all day. (Learn more at almay.com!)
They come in four different colors: Berry, Pink, Nude, and Red.
My mom and sister were over at my apartment last night. We spent a good thirty minutes playing with the lipsticks. We each have different skin tones so it ended up being great for divvying up the lipsticks! Ha! It was crazy to see how the different reds ended up looking with each of our skin tones. I loved the bright color pink (medium) looked in the tube, but we all agreed that the actual light shade looked so much better with my coloring.
The best part is that the lipsticks are available at your favorite drug stores and they’re totally affordable. It’s pretty fantastic. (Hey moms, these would be perfect stocking stuffers!)
