Imagine slick, shiny and super hydrated lips that feel oh so soft, smooth and buttery. Lips that have a slight pigment and smell like vanilla cookies ...

That is what the ALMAY SMART SHADE BUTTER KISS lip balms are like and better yet they come in the most divine shades with a colour to suit everyone.

I recently got the opportunity to try out the latest lippie offering from ALMAY and I am truly impressed with the SMART SHADE BUTTER KISS.
So here is what I thought ...

Packaging -
The packaging is fun and trendy with the actual tube representing the colour of the gloss and the lid being transparent acrylic.

Fragrance -
Is that of warm vanilla cookies and absolutely divine!

Texture -
It applies in a smooth and filmogenic gloss , once on the lips it transforms to a soft buttery texture which is surprising in how long it lasts.
This is not a lipstick and will not give you a huge colour deposit but rather a lovely soft and gently tint with a little shine and sparkle.

Efficacy -
It is super effective both as a hydrating lip butter and a tinted lip balm ... it has the added benefit of smelling absolutely yummy. I love this and they have now been added my list of favourites along with Revlon's Colourburst Lip Butters.

What you might like to know is that it comes in 12 amazing shades:
Pink, berry, red and nude for light, light/medium and medium skin tones
Retails for ZAR 110.00

Available from March 2015 and leading retailers and pharmacies.
