I am really impressed with these color sticks. I do not own many Neutrogena products, and I certainly do not look for this brand in terms of make up. But I am so glad that I got reviews to check out these chubby sticks. I did not want to pay 19-24 dollars for one lip crayon at Sephora. Out of drugstore brands, these are seemingly the best. I have swatched Clinique's popular chubby sticks, and the texture here is the closest to those.
After viewing a youtube tutorial, I saw an artist apply Juicy Peach. I decided to try it out by purchasing one for $8 in CVS. Boy, I was so impressed. I love that the lip crayon glides onto your lips and is super moisturizing. It leaves my lips more hydrated, even after the color has worn off. Since I am fair skinned, Juicy Peach definitely shows up on my lips as a SEXY nude lip color with glossy finish. It isn't as sticky as a gloss. And it is not matte, so that it doesn't transfer easily.
The staying power isn't great. But it lasts for about 2-3 hours, working like a lip balm. I actually LOVE the SCENT. The entire line smells like sweet peaches.
I will definitely be repurchasing. Though I will probably wait until there is a sale at CVS, Walgreens, or Ulta. The color range is beautiful and girly. i think it looks really sexy paired with smokey eye.

Picked up Juicy Peach and it's a winner! Gorgeous peachy shade with the most subtle golden shimmer. Very natural and a great substitute for a nude lip. Formula is creamy and hydrating, nothing like the other chubby stick-style lip products I've tried. It is slightly peach scented but nothing that sticks around. The shade range is a bit small, which is the only reason I gave this a 4 instead of a 5.

I was thoroughly surprised by Neutrogena's Moisture Smooth Color Stick! I have the color "watermelon" and while the color did not match my skin tone completely (I was able to mix it with another lippie) it's okay because it was really moisturizer. It glided on really well and for someone who has pretty chapped lips, that's saying a lot. It's twistable and the packaging is pretty solid. I haven't been this impressed with a Neutrogena product in a long time.

The best thing these color sticks do is make my lips nice and soft. The colors are not deep and opaque, yet they look nice with a natural look. What I do not like is any kind of flavored lipstick, gloss or stick and these color sticks are no exception. Wish they made them without the inane flavors. I have mixed the plum perfect and juicy peach for a different shade and came up with a coral shade, however, don't like any of the flavors, alone or mixed together. Don't find them longer lasting than any other lip color. But I really do like how smooth and soft they make my lips.

Though moisturizing for me it is not, I love this product!
From the other reviews I read there was a very strong smell, but to me, the smell is not strong enough to bother me at all. The color payoff isn't the most amazing thing out there, but it isn't absolutely ridiculous either. I have the sweet watermelon one and I love how it makes my lips look, very soft and almost like a porcelain doll's lip color.
The product is easy as pie to use, and will probably last me a very very long time. I haven't even needed to twist it up yet and I've been using it almost every day for a few weeks now. Yay!
The only down side I have for this product is that it feels very odd when putting on... I don't know how to explain it, but it isn't smooth as butter. It has like... exfoliation-type (but not as hard or rough as those) things in the formula that when I put it on it doesn't quite glide on like you think they would. Maybe it's just this one that I have, but... very odd indeed.
Anyway, 4 "stars" because of the formula not gliding smoothly, and it actually not being a "lip balm", still though... <3!

I have just about every brands chubby stick/moisture balm stick product that you can think of. I've got an obsession. I have this type in Soft Raspberry and it's probably my favorite out of all the ones that I own. The texture is perfect, so lightweight and perfectly pigmented. I can't feel this on my lips at all. The color of Soft Raspberry is the perfect everyday color for me, a but deep but still soft - as the name implies. The shimmer doesn't really show up and I don't find it frosty at all. These have a nice scent but a bit of an odd taste. I absolutely love this product.

Love love love these. They provide a nice natural color and I find the gloss very pretty. The juicy peach smells oh so good.. I don't understand the negative reviews because I love these and plan in purchasing every shade. I apply a buttload and then remove excess with toilet paper and I love the way it looks.

I have tried the Revlon and Covergirl stick balms as well as the Neutrogena version. I purchased the Fresh Papaya shade. It does have a strong scent. I almost thought it was a papaya scent but it's more peachy. I don't like the scent. The texture was heavier than the other two brands I mentioned. It was visibly thicker on my lips. It also has shimmer which was not flattering. Because of the texture and shimmer, it looked bad on my lips. It did not make my lips appear smoother.

As a college student still trying to figure out her ideal makeup routine...the stick in Juicy Peach is amazing. I wear it to add a little color to my lips when going for a fast, natural look. Color is amazing and looks fresh especially when wearing a bb cream. Moisturizes well, and I am a diehard for lip balms.

I own these in Juicy Peach and Sweet Watermelon, and lately I've been grabbing Sweet Watermelon a lot since the weather got hot.
Juicy Peach still has the nice, buttery, moisturizing formula, but the glitter in it is too gritty and I have to be careful applying it or it looks cakey and weird. It's been languishing in my makeup cabinet, and will probably be given to my daughter for dress-up. Sweet Watermelon has shimmer in it, but it's much more natural looking, and is more of a sheen than a frost. It's a sheer rosy pink, and complements my NC25 skin.
The formula for these is amazing, though - they are not long wearing, but they fade evenly, and leave my lips feeling silky soft for hours. I reach for this over any other lip balm I have when my lips start feeling rough, the moisturizing properties are that good.
It is expensive (compared to some of the other brands that have put out chubby stick knockoffs, with longer lasting formulas and more color variety), and the current colors are all frosts/shimmers in pink/neutral colors, but if Neutrogena added some cream finishes I would snap them up in a heartbeat.
