Cheers!!!! Its year end, wohoooo!!!!Many of you must have made your New Year plans and resolutions by now 🙂 I will cherish my trip from last year’s New Year’s eve, sitting at home with my superactive 8 month old and her daa daa 😛 I always go crazy when I recall those memories; I was in my last trimester and still walking the whole day @Lake Tahoe and then finally enjoying New Year fireworks the same night from the Golden Gate Bridge, SFO. Since then, everyone makes fun of me saying, “you were always busy walking and hanging out until you reached labour, so is your baby!” My baby never sits at one place, she always keeps on moving, even while sleeping 😛 I found good products in Neutrogena for my skin care regime, but its a little disappointing as far as cosmetics are concerned. Please read on further to know why.

My Experience with Neutrogena Moisture Shine Lip Gloss – Potent Plum:
I already own Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner – Twilight Blue, which is quite okay. I was impressed by the list of ingredients of this lip gloss, hence I opted for this as I wanted a juicy yet shiny glow on my lips. Its packaging is quite classy like any branded lip gloss. The color of lip gloss is visible from outside, hence its easy to get an idea of the desired shade even without opening the tube, but when I got this tube, I didn’t realize that its a dried tube. I just grabbed it from the mall and got to know about my blunder later on! When I opened the tube, it was dry inside. I tried hard to get some stuff out of it. I couldn’t claim for refund because I had to travel 50 miles to do so.
Coming to its texture, its a really thick and sticky fluid. Its a very light pink shade which looks almost nude on the lips. One can hardly expect any pigmentation. I was expecting to get a beautiful plum color on the lips, but sadly, it never happened with this lip gloss! It gives sheer pink stain on lips, which remains for 3-4 hours. Whenever I wear it, my hair sticks on my lips, which irritates me, but I must say it helps to keep my lips smooth and soft. I feel disturbed by its smell though, which reminds me of cough syrup.
Let’s sum up the pros and cons:
Pros of Neutrogena Moisture Shine Lip Gloss – Potent Plum:
- Contains nourishing ingredients.
- Keeps lips smooth and soft till it fades away.
- May last 3-4 hours.
- May be good for every day use as it gives a sheer pink stain to the lips.
- Classy packaging, color visible easily without opening the tube.
Cons of Neutrogena Moisture Shine Lip Gloss – Potent Plum:
- Feels a bit sticky on the lips.
- Doesn’t show up plum shade on the lips.
- The scent is a turn off.
- Pricey, better deals available across other brands.
Here are some swatches to give you a better idea:
I swept it once over Vagabond Mauve shade, you may hardly notice any difference. Overall, I must say, I will try some other shade from this range as I want to know the secret behind some positive reviews on the net. Definitely not recommending this shade to anyone. On a different note, adding a pic of me on my New Year’s Eve last year.
