There I was, on an innocent trip to CVS to scope out their weekly Extra Value Buck offers, when I happened upon a display of Sally Hansen lip products. On the very bottom shelf at the very end of the beauty section. Languishing! I’m sure glad I ventured in the direction of these products, because I discovered a really great new lip product that won’t break the bank. It’s the Sally Hansen Moisture Twist 2-in-1 Lip Gloss in Peach Smoothie, which has quickly become a staple in my makeup bag.
The Sally Hansen section had a sweet Extra Value deal going on, so I bought one of their nail polishes (which I love) and decided to take a chance on this fabulously shimmery peach lip gloss. I can never resist a fabulously shimmery peach lip gloss with gorgeous flecks of microfine gold glitter.
With a doe-foot applicator, this lip product offers both a primer/base and gloss in one product. The ingredient list is unavailable, but according to Sally Hansen, this gloss offers:
- +30% more moisture, instantly
- An antioxidant formula that has Jojoba, Sunflower & Moroccan Argan oils
- A Non-sticky, weightless feel
As far as pigmentation goes, I am definitely impressed! The gloss isn’t one to disappear, it lingers and wears well, but you’ll definitely need a touch up after eating.
My Final Thoughts: Offering long-wearing, pigmented, non-sticky shine, Sally Hansen Moisture Twist 2-in-1 Lip Gloss in Peach Smoothie is right up my alley. Priced at under $5, these budget-friendly glosses are definitely worth checking out.
Price: $3.62 online, $4.99 at my local CVS
