Wearing Neutrogena MoistureShine Gloss in Copper Power on my lips
Currently on my list of things I can’t get enough of…
1. Nude heels
For the longest time I was all about black shoes because I thought, hey, they go with everything, right? These days, I’m all about nudes. Nude heels, nude sandals and — oh! I’m think I’m gonna need to find a pair of nude boots by fall.
Basically, if it’s in a nude color, goes on my feet and appears to make my legs look longer (as nude shoes are wont to do), I’m there.
2. Cat stickers
I always use the tabby ones first. One of these days I’m going to make some Tabs stickers. That would be rad to the Nth degree, for real! Of course, there would have to be several stickers showing off his husky tum (of course).
Mom always says, “Smile, and the whole world smiles with you.”
I think that’s great advice.
4. And because this is MBB, a fabulous drugstore lipgloss that costs less than lunch!

These Neutrogena MoistureShine Glosses are just $7.99! — and yes, baby girl, they’re the real deal. They come in a wide range of 14 wearable colors in a variety of finishes and levels of coverage, from sheer neutrals, to punchy pinks, to bright berries and more.
They last about three hours on me, which isn’t bad for a gloss, and also come with a handy doe-foot applicator. The formula contains a berry antioxidant complex of acai, goji and aronia (commonly referred to as “chokeberry,” a berry native to Eastern North America) to supposedly soften and smooth lips over time.
Now, these days I take claims like that with a grain of salt (or goji, if you know what I mean), and I try not to expect a lot when companies make product promises. In this case, though, over the months I’ve been wearing these off and on, I will say that my lips haven’t been as flaky as they were last winter.

Not only are these non-sticky, super comfy and hydrating, but their faint berry flavor and scent doesn’t get all up in my grill, making them great when I’m in the mood for something mellow.
Neutrogena doesn’t take too many chances when it comes to makeup, and I think of them as a pretty conservative line, kinda like a Bobbi Brown of the drugstore world. They aren’t known for crazy colors — just straight-up pretty products designed to enhance your features.
And that’s how I think of these MoistureShine Glosses. They’re shiny and pigmented enough to catch your attention, but they steer clear of ultra-high-fashion runway colors.
I mean, I love those kinds of glosses, too, but for something like an interview or date, I’d much rather wear a MoistureShine.
