My Experience with Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick – Bright Berry:
It was love at first sight 😛 I came across Neutrogena counter to pick my usual summer stuff when I noticed these chubby sticks. I had no idea about their pigmentation at that time as they were all sealed, so just playing a blind game, I picked up the Bright Berry shade for myself out of 8 gorgeous shades. Afterwards, when I opened the seal and swatched it, I was amazed to know that this particular berry shade is totally similar to the L’Oreal Color Riche Vagabond Mauve Lipstick. You won’t believe both are metallic pink shades and seem to be identical twins in terms of pigmentation I swear. However, this stick is more juicy and glossy than the L’Oreal lipstick.
I always love pigmented glosses and this is what my ultimate love is – a highly pigmented gloss with soft and supple shine! I am totally loving the chubby fat packaging with pointed stick which serves multiple purposes. I can use it as a lip liner as well as a lip color, lip gloss too.
Its pointed shape easily lines my lips and gives a perfect yet subtle definition to the lips. I sometimes club it with other lip colors, like line my lips with this chubby stick and then fill in with other pink or mauve lip colors! As long as it stays on my lips, it feels smooth and keeps the lips hydrated. It has such a strong mango-berry-mixed fruity fragrance which remains for an hour and the pigmentation stays for good 4-6 hours provided I skip heavy meals. However, I won’t mind reapplying. After reading the reviews of Clinique Chubby Sticks on IMBB, I feel as long as I am not able to have Clinique, this drugstore chubby stick will do. I would love to collect all 8 shades from this range.
Let’s sum up the pros and cons:
