Lip gloss is one of those great make up products that never seems to go out for style. Best for all there always seems to be some kind of new lip gloss product on the market. Products like Neutrogena Lip Gloss Moisture Shine and Revlon SkinLights Glosslights for Lips Translucent Gloss are the modern day evolution of an early 1900s invention in Hollywood. Lip gloss was invented by Max Factor and first showed up in 1928 on film to make the actors and actresses lips shiny for the camera and the rest of the American female population soon was hooked. Today you can find lip gloss in any color, with glitters, clear, in tubes with wand applicators, in the original small round metal case, and even in the more modern look squeeze tube with the rounded applicator built on. There is no end to the supply of lip gloss out there and I have tried innumerable quantities of this affordable beauty aid. My obsession with lip gloss began by the time I was 6 years old and has never waned. So, comparing Neutrogena Lip Gloss Moisture Shine Versus Revlon SkinLights Glosslights for Lips Translucent Gloss seems almost second nature!
Sticky Versus Non Sticky
Ok, personally I tend to favor the non sticky variety of shiny lip gloss. I just do not like that oh so gooey feeling of you lips sticking together. Also, I have long hair and it is pretty gross feeling to have my hair blow in the wind and then parts of it stick to my lips. Revlon SkinLights Glosslights for Lips Translucent Gloss is hands down the winner in the battle of which lips gloss is less sticky. Oh, by the way I bought it in Amethyst. This lip gloss is upper shiny and is not too sticky at all. Neutrogena Lip Gloss Moisture Shine, which I bought in Dizzy, is more sticky, but not completely unbearable. Maybe one or two stray hairs can stick to it. I have found though that if you apply the Neutrogena Lip Gloss Moisture Shine sparingly or over lip stick it is not sticky at all.
The Revlon SkinLights Glosslights for Lips Translucent Gloss does have a tendency to get on my teeth right after I apply it. This is only a small problem though and can be avoided by applying only a small amount or checking your teeth occasionally in the mirror.
Ok, you definitely want some color from your lip gloss. Personally dislike the watery color floating on your lips look. A good lip gloss, like either Neutrogena Lip Gloss Moisture Shine or Revlon SkinLights Glosslights for Lips Translucent Gloss, you want some real depth of color on your lips. Both Neutrogena Lip Gloss Moisture Shine and Revlon SkinLights Glosslights for Lips Translucent Gloss do have a good amount of color in them and both appear colorful on your lips. Although I bought the Neutrogena Lip Gloss Moisture Shine in a lighter color called Petal Shimmer it still adds color as well as the expected shine to my lips. The Revlon SkinLights Glosslights for Lips Translucent Gloss in Amethyst is a deeper color and also has some sparkling shimmer in it. This shimmer is nice and not too over the top. I like the look, but it does add a textured feel to the lip gloss. Overall both products do well in the color department. For a more natural look try the Neutrogena Lip Gloss Moisture Shine in Dizzy and for a more vibrant colorful look use the Revlon SkinLights Glosslights for Lips Translucent Gloss in Amethyst.
A tube of Revlon SkinLights Glosslights for Lips Translucent Gloss will cost you about $8.49 and will last you for years. I still have my tube of lip gloss and don’t think I will ever get through it. A tube of Neutrogena Lip Gloss Moisture Shine will cost you about $6.99 and will also last for quite a while. Both make a great addition to your existing lipstick and makeup collection.
