Tinted lip balm (or, The State of My Brain)

I know the Freckled Citizen readership has some burning questions these days. Demanding a higher priority than "When will Maggie start writing on this blog for real, as promised?" and even topping "How can the girl who once analyzed elections and lived for policy wonkery now post cat photos?" is this, the most burning of all burning FC readership concerns:

 "Has Maggie found a replacement for her beloved, discontinued Neutrogena MoistureShine Tinted Lip Balm yet?"

The answer, dear readers, is yes!

Three years after my pocket's best friend lost its companion of two years to a host of wannabe glosses and mere months away from using up my last hoarded tube purchased from every drugstore I visited for months, there is finally a new tinted lip balm in my life. Allow me to introduce Laura Mercier's Hydratint.

Does Hydratint costs three times as much as the discontinued Neutrogena tinted lip balm? Yes. Do I like it as much as the discontinued Neutrogena tinted lip balm? No. But compared with every other tinted lip balm on the market I've tried since the demise of my to-the-grave favorite (and there are many), it is far and away the best.

I own Hydratint in Crimson and Berry, and have my eyes on Nude, too. In case any of you former MoistureShine girls are still in mourning, give this one a try and tell me what you think.

Now, back to cat photos...


  1. Today I started a post about "what is wrong with the Sherwin Williams "Cover the Earth" sign... and then deleted it... Where is the blog inspiration these days?

    HOWEVER, I do enjoy a good lipgloss review - always!


C'mon, make my day...
