Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Sticks aren’t a new product as they launched in 2013 however, it has been a little bit since new colors have been available so for Spring 2016 there are eight fabulous shades to choose from. Why fabulous? Because half are gorgeous, wearable nudes that I happen to be obsessed with at the moment.
Take a look!
Sadly, I can’t confirm if the Neutrogena Spring 2016 Moisture Smooth Color Stick Collection is limited edition or permanent. I have hopes it is a permanent line of color as some of these shades are keepers. If they aren’t permanent I have a lot of stocking up to do!
I picked these shades up on Ulta’s website recently as I didn’t see them in stores plus they were Buy 1, Get 1 50% off so if anything at all I’d suggest grabbing them online plus Ulta a free shipping deal with a minimum purchase and a $3.50 off coupon using promo code 303577.
These new Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Sticks have a nice soft glide on lips with a very creamy texture and finish. I think they are a little different compared the past shades. Like for example the shades Classic Nude, Pink Nude, and Berry Brown have a softer cream finish where as shade 130 is a lot like what I’ve seen from these in the past which is a soft, hydrating, light formula with a hint of a pretty shine. They do have a peachy mango kinda flavor or fragrance going on so just a heads up for sensitive users.
I think Neutrogena’s formula always stood out from other chubby pencils because it doesn’t have the balminess most of them have. The have more of a light glossy feel which I find wears well on my drier lips. I can get a good wear from the shades at around four hours.
As I mentioned above the reason I liked these so much is the pretty new shades! More than half these shades are nude and I’m in heaven because they are wearable nudes not zombie nude lip shades! But don’t worry, if nudes aren’t your thing, there new pinks, berries, and red shades!
All in all the Neutrogena Spring 2016 Moisture Smooth Color Stick Collection is a gorgeous new shade selection with plenty of options for both nude and non-nude lovers!
