Splurge vs. Steal: Chanel Bikini Peach Glossimer & Neutrogena Fruity Pink MoistureShine Gloss

This edition of Splurge vs. Steal has us pretty excited. Not only have we discovered a fabulous drugstore lipgloss by Neutrogena, it just so happens it bears an uncanny resemblemnce to my favorite gloss of the summer: Chanel Bikini Peach Glossimer. After hearing many raves about the Neutrogena MoistureShine Gloss, I decided to give it a try. I selected the Fruity Pink color, a pinky-peach with refined golden shimers. It’s a fairly sheer gloss with a creamy finish – not gritty in the least. It has a light, fruity scent that I liked. Overall, a fantastic lip gloss for under $10.

Then I decided to compare it to Bikini Peach and was stunned by how similar they are. Chanel Bikini Peach is slightly peachier and a tad more creamy upon application, but the color is nearly spot on. We deem this a worthy splurge or steal, since both of these glosses are pretty amazing! Let us know if you’ve tried either.
