Women world-wide search and search for the perfect lipstick color. This search led me to conduct my own personal Almay lipstick review.
Almay Lipstick Review Made Easy
Almay's been around since 1931, and they offer an impressive product line of cosmetics for the face, as well as a complete line of skincare. But, we're talking about lipstick here, so let's get down to business.
Almay Ideal Lipcolor
Lured by the "sure-to-flatter-you-color", I purchased Almay Ideal Lipcolor in pink. Here are my findings:
|Pros And Cons||Description|
No need for despair, however, all is not lost. Indeed, I'm sure, if in need of shine, I'll be able to layer this lipstick over one of my other go-to lipsticks. And even though this shade didn't work for me, it doesn't mean it won't work for you. Particularly if:
- You're an avid exerciser that likes a little glow on the lips as you run.
I could easily see this lipstick being worn with the same cavalier attitude we use to swipe lip balm across our lips.
- You prefer a minimalist approach to makeup.
If you dread the thought of "putting on your face" and prefer a more natural makeup look, then this lipstick could work quite well.
- Perfect for teens and those just starting to experiment with color.
The color is most certainly light enough for teens, especially preteens, as it certainly won't raise eyebrows.
Or, if you're just starting to experiment with makeup, this lipstick can be a good way to ease you into color.
More Good News
There's no doubt that Almay is a fantastic cosmetics company, and their website is geared towards helping you find your perfect look. Two features, in particular, caught my eyes.
First, they have a makeup tips section. This beauty section allows you to plug in your skin type, eye color, and favorite shades. From there, you are steered towards products specifically oriented towards the information you provided. If my Almay lipstick review had begun here, instead of my usual hit or miss at the makeup counter, I may have had more flattering results.
Second, the "Get The Look" feature is very helpful for deciding on which makeup look you'd like to achieve. Among the categories they cover are:
- Perfectly Polished
- Dress Up Your Evening
- Causal Appeal
After all my research for the Almay lipstick review, I've decided to give this product another shot. Perhaps next time I'll go with a berry shade…
