How to Use
Rated 4.37 out of 5 stars
Perfect both for everyday use as well as for going out, and feels so smooth and creamy once applied. When I hit my '30's I discovered my lips aren't what they used to be, so I appreciate products that add moisture to my lips. This product claims to add moisture and it certainly does. I used the shade "Go Wild", which at first I found ironic considering it was so close to my natural shade but I realized that the name is perhaps intentional- because it is so neutral, one is free to "go wild" with the rest of your makeup (assuming your lips are a similar shade as mine). So, I find I have been using this lipstick a lot when I want to go for a bold eyeshadow look. The container is adorable, with the lightweight feel of a paper material. There is a window at the top to view the product inside, and I have found that the shade in the tube is near identical to what you get. The lipstick does need reapplying every few hours, so if you are looking for longwear I would not recommend this. It also feels a bit thin, and perhaps slightly gritty but it is barely noticeable. However, if you have a fair-medium complexion, need a good nude and appreciate a lightweight lipstick I would definitely recommend this one. I received this product free for testing purposes but all opinions are honest and are my own.
The product it self is very good, I love the smell and the color ,the application was so easy too I recommend a lip liner because it won't last too long ! But I didn't see what was Soo matte about the product, it was more of a satin finish which I'm not mad about but I would hate to have bought something and whatnot claims to be isn't true, I on the other hand got it supplied by crowdtap to test out and I'm not mad about receiving it, just wouldn't be so happy if I would have bought it over all a good product!

I have been looking for a nude lipstick that isn't too dark or too light for me, and this one is the perfect color for me. I personally don't like matte lipsticks since most of them dry up my lips, so this one is perfect for me because it's not matte and it's not too creamy, it's the right type of creamy lipstick. Obviously a creamy lipstick will consist of you touching up when you eat or drink something, which I don't really mind, but I really like this one.

Smooth and silky

I got the shade worry less. My skin tone has very warm undertones, and this lipstick has very cool undertones. I honestly got hints of gray and like dark purple when I put it on. It says it's supposed to be like a mauve color, but it just seem way too cool toned to be mauve. I've got like 5 other mauve lipsticks that I love but I didn't love this one

Smooth, creamy, beautiful color. Some lipsticks just get way out of hand when it comes to pigment and the matte look, also the way they wear after a few hours is disgusting. Oh and do I need to mention price? Not this! The pigment is just right for my liking and it fades to such a pretty, subtle color. This shade on my lips is more of a berry.

Love Almay Lip Vibes... Never disappointed with the colors I chose. Stays on your lips...

Pretty color and stays on your lips.

This is a lovely lipstick. It is really creamy so I am going through this faster than other bullet lipsticks. However this is moisturizing. And you can build up the color if you want it fully opaque. Also bonus points: cute packaging and a good price.

Doesn't last, not very pigmented, and company isn't cruelty free.

I have three of these, and one thing I love that they've done is include to more sheer, shimmery toppers. I've got Skip the Gym a matter shade and a cream shade, and while they aren't going to last you through eating your lunch, they also aren't super dry. There's nothing I hate more when I can feel my lips getting chapped under my lipstick, and these don't do that. The packaging is also really nice, not bulky which I prefer since I'm often driving back and forth from school.

Very moisturizing and very pigmented color I really love the packaging as well. Almay has amazing products!

Love that this lipstick has all of the qualities that I love in a lipstick. Creamy, not much of a scent, great coverage but most important to me non feathering! I used to buy a vegan, rival brand that cost almost 3 times as much and I actually like this one better! I have a fair complexion and this color is terrific for me. A light nude/mauvish look.
Britt from JC, KS
I found that Skip the Gym looked more like a very light (not well pigmented) pink glitter lip. Could be a good topper but compared to the "Be Strong" lipvibe, it just felt like a totally different product. Loved everything else about the Be Strong, stayed on well, great pigmented color, creamy, and felt great/hydrating on my lips.

This just may be the best drugstore lipstick I've ever tried! It checks all the boxes : smooth, easy application/awesome pigment/perfect weight/good staying power. And you can't beat the reasonable price point. It's a definite winner!

I used to love, love Almay lipsticks, especially their Smart Shade Butter Kiss lipstick line, but those were discontinued. And before that, Almay had another line of wonderful lipsticks that I loved. However, I can't say that I love Almay lipsticks anymore. Their Lip Vibes texture feels too heavy and the colors aren't looking great with my skin tone. Wish Almay would stop changing their lipsticks and just stick to one. I'm going to try NARS brand now. The NARS afterglow looks pretty close to Almay's Smart Shade Butter kiss lipsticks.

As I would any lipstick- and on my cheeks as well.

Need to return for one that actually contains product.
Melissa from Haskell, Arkansas
I really loved the color and how smoothly it went on just didnt like that it didn't have staying power..
Cuban Chick from Costa Mesa
I like this brand and the price was great. I was looking for a very soft purple and this one looked spot on. When i tried it at home, turns out, its a very pale, light color.

I have found my new favorite lipstick.
Alli from Greensboro NC
I was happily surprised the color had a rich pigment and is a beautiful berry shaded...not purple. My lips are soft without crackling from my typical allergies.

When I have a heavy eye or a light eye this lip color goes with everything!
KatieBug from Rocklin, CA
Great lip color and so affordable! Really like this product and love the darling packaging. I have sensitive lips and often have reactions to "sensitive" products, but not with this product. I love the variety of colors and the light feel of the coverage. The "frosts" are really pretty and light and the mattes have great color and coverage.

colors come in wide variety, go on shiny and smooth, so moist

I was very disappointed with this product, even when I applied various layers, it wouldn't look good.
Alex from Missouri
Basically puts gold glitter on your lips. Don't recommend this shade.
