I picked up the Almay Smart Shade Butter Kiss Lipstick yesterday to test out and found it to be a nice Summer shade although it’s more a balm or gloss than lipstick.
What’s to love?
First I have to say that I don’t consider the Almay Smart Shade Butter Kiss a lipstick but more of a lip balm or gloss. It has an angled flat top that twists up from the metallic tube and the packaging is quite pretty. The top of the case is transparent but very hard to open. I actually had to use my teeth to pull it off.
I really liked the product itself. I chose the Berry Shade for Light-Medium skin (Almay is tailoring their shades by skin type now) and it’s a pale pink on my lips.
The formula has a light shimmery glossy finish that’s pack with moisture but not sticky. My lips felt very soft and smooth with it on however this is not a highly pigmented or long lasting product. I got about 2 hours of wear before I had to reapply. It also came off on my water glass.
It does have a nice very light sugar/vanilla scent an but no taste. The lipstick is Hypoallergenic and Dermatologist Tested as is the entire Almay line.
Overall I liked this product and would buy it again. It comes in 12 shades. The price is $3.49 which I think is a great value too.
