There are many good and also affordable lip glosses on the market. In fact, for every expensive gloss I find that I love, I have a less expensive favorite. I think in part this is because lip gloss is something that can be made in a quality manner for not much cost. Unlike lipstick, eyeshadow, or other cosmetics, gloss does not require large amounts of pigment and the basic ingredients don’t need to change in formulation much to create a nice, yet non-sticky shine.
Neutrogena MoistureShine Gloss is one of those affordable, yet quality glosses. The gloss meets the name descriptor quite well. It is more moisturizing than many glosses and the shine is good as well.
My favorite shade of Moisture shine gloss is first blush (pictured). This is a very neutral light pink that provides just a hint of color and loads of shine. A number of other shades are available as well.
Another bonus of Neutrogena Moisture Shine products is that they tend to smell and/or taste great! The glosses have a very light and slightly fruity scent, with no particular taste.
