I’ve never been much of a lipstick girl, but Almay’s Hydracolor Lipstick intrigued me when I came across it not too long ago. Of course, the shade I sampled was Clear, and I was amazed to find that this purported lipstick was, in fact, one of the best lip balms to ever touch my lips. It’s not only hydrating- infused with Vitamin E and plant extracts — but upon application immediately imparts an inexplicable cooling sensation, along with a handy SPF of 15. Perfect for those hot summer days when the sun’s rays are beating down on your sunscreen-slathered visage. And, since it is truly a lipstick, it’s available in 32 different sheer, playful shades.
