I love summer fashion. Sundresses and sandals and tank tops, oh my! But one of the hardest parts of summer style is my make-up. My skin changes so much during the summer. I go from being pasty white to sort of tan to occasionally sunburned to full-on freckled. Not only is my skin like a chameleon’s, I also just don’t like having to wear a full face of make up during the summer. On a normal work day, I wear loose powder, blush, eye shadow, eye liner, mascara and lip stick or gloss. During the summer, that is just too much effort! I try to cut way back and normally only wear a little mascara and some lip gloss. But when you factor in that my skin has changed so much from all of the sun… well, let’s just say that finding my perfect summer look hasn’t always been easy.
Until now! ALMAY sent me four of their new Color + Careô Liquid Lip Balms, and I think they are perfect for summer! What I love about them is that no matter which shade you pick, they are light enough to match any skin tone. When I first saw the dark one, I thought that I would never be able to pull it off. But the liquid lip balm is so light and neutral, that it really only tints your lips a slightly darker shade instead of turning it a true color. This touch of color makes for the perfect summer lip, and looks great on pasty white, sort of tan, sometimes burned, and usually freckled skin, which means it would look great on anyone’s skin because I’m convinced I have one of the hardest skin tones to match in terms color.
The added bonus for the Almay Color + Careô Liquid Lip Balm is that it conditions the lips with 194% more moisture for softer lips over time. That added hydration is perfect for summer lips that can be shriveled and tender after a day in the sun. Nothing feels better than laying out by the pool all day, showering, throwing on a sundress and one of these new liquid lip balms and heading out for a fun summer date night. While I look great, my lips are actually being cared for because the gloss provides the comfort of a lip balm with the shine and style of a lip gloss. I really can’t recommend this enough–in any color! Your lips will feel luxurious and healthier after each wear.
