Friday Favorites: Neutrogena Tinted Lip Balm

I know several bloggers who do "Friday Favorites," mentioning fun products they have recently discovered or have long enjoyed. So in the interests of getting something quick up tonight so you all don't freak out...

I had this great lipstick in college that I used to wear for ministry team & chorale concerts. It was sheer and subtle, but a little bolder than the pink/brown neutrals I usually wear for everyday, so it was better for being up in front of people. It's almost gone, and they don't make that brand anymore--I hate it when that happens!

I also am always hesitant to buy new makeup because I hate to waste money on something that ends up looking terrible on me. But the other day I decided to give some a try--Neutrogena MoistureShine Tinted Lip Balm. I love it! It just looks like a little tube of chapstick, easy to stick in my pocket, and it even has SPF 20. Sheer, shiny color, not sticky (I'm not a fan of sticky lipstick/lip gloss...and neither is Steve :) Less than $7 and it smells yummy! Best of all, the color--"Nude"--is nearly identical to my old favorite lipstick.

If you check out the shades on the link above, beware that they look totally odd. They're much different in person; the "Nude" I got seems misnamed because it's berry-ish (in fact it looks more like this picture).

So there's your little bit of randomness from me tonight :)

I am the same way about chapsticks/lip gloss so this is a great tip!

I'm a big fan of Neutrogena makeup, it's starting to be almost all I wear (the fact that every thing has SPF in it being a big factor). I'd seen these in the store, thanks for the recommendation, it sounds great!

Thank you - that is a great suggestion. I just bought some Bare Essentials lip gloss but it's sticky :-( and I paid $14 for it!! But the color is perfect... I'll deffinitely try the Neutrogena next time.

I was trying to find a post on tinted lip balm from another blogger and found yours - just FYI Rite Aid here in WV, you can buy makeup and return it if you don't like it as long as you have your receipt!
