Almay Smart Shade Butter Kiss Lipstick (lip swatch & quick thoughts)

It is always disappointing when I see a range of makeup that doesn’t even try to cater to all skin tones, but sometimes I just can’t resist.  It is important to keep in mind that just because a line doesn’t have a foundation for your skin tone, doesn’t mean you won’t be able to use their color cosmetics.  Since I enjoy tinted lip balms and this looked like a promising one I decided to go for it, and I do enjoy the product.  It is very comfortable to wear, gives a bit of shine with no sticky feeling, and a touch of color.  If you want more than a touch of color and a larger shade range I’d say Revlon Lip butters are still a good option to reach for instead.  The Almay Smart Shade Butter Kiss line retails for $5.99 at
