Hey ladies! I have actually been kind of excited about these new Almay Smart Shade Butter Kiss Lipsticks because its been a long time since I’ve really loved something from the Almay brand. (Sorry, Almay!) While perusing through CVS on my weekly trip (I may or may not have a problem,) I spotted these fun looking lipsticks on an off-shelf display so I went to investigate.
These Smart Shade Butter Lipsticks are new from Almay and they are designed to “coordinate with your unique skin tone while drenching your lips in hydration.”
I snapped a pic of the display so you can easily see how it’s set up by skin tone and the other shades they offer. I picked everything from the “light” category except the pink because I liked the look of the “light/medium” pink better.
I found all of these to be very moisturizing and comfortable on the lips. Most of the ones I tried are decently pigmented except the Nude, which is slightly more sheer. They also last a decent amount of time for being “buttery” lipsticks, I got about 4-5 hrs of wear on each of the ones I tried, but they probably won’t last you through a meal. The darker ones do leave a faint stain behind on the lips, but nothing too major. Also, I really laid it on thick with these to show you how pigmented they can be, but you can definitely wear them more sheer if thats your thing. These have a slight sweet/chocolate scent but it isn’t very bothersome and fades pretty quickly.
This is a cool medium bubblegum pink shade.
A shimmering warm nude with peachy/pink undertones. This ones does have gold shimmer in it, so its slightly more “gritty” feeling than the others, but nothing that would prevent me from wearing it.
A cool medium berry.
(Ha, red light…) 😉 Anyway, this is a warm medium red that I think would be great for daytime!
Overall, I am really impressed with these new Almay Smart Shade Butter Kiss lipsticks. They are all easy to wear, the formula is nice and I am really enjoying the shades that I picked!
They retail for about $6.99. I got mine at CVS, but they also have them online at Walgreens.
Have you spotted these yet in a store near you? Do you think you’ll be picking some up?
Thanks for reading, hope you have a great day! xoxo- Kristina
