Neutrogena Crease Proof Eye Shadow (retail value aprox. $8)
This eyeshadow is absolutely amazing! I received the shades Constant Copper and Lasting Taupe. I wore the Constant Copper all over my lid, applied Lasting Taupe in my crease, and then blended. It took me all of 10 second to achieve a gorgeous smokey eye.
Neutrogena Healthy Lengths Mascara (retail value aprox. $7)
To top off my smokey eye, I applied Neutrogena Healthy Lengths mascara. I am fairly picky when it comes to mascara and was honestly expecting not to like it. I was also a little skeptical of the claim of 100% longer lashes, although I was pleasantly surprised at just how much of a difference it made when I tried it on. My lashes were noticably longer and the wand did an excellent job of separating my lashes beautifully. Although I tend to gravitate toward sample sizes (I am a firm believer in tossing mascara after a few months so the minis just seem more practical to me), I think I will actually make it through this entire tube. ;) I also like the wand did not come already in the tube. It is easier to see what the brush looks like clean and I like the thought of it being fresh.
Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick (retail value aprox. $8)
I decided to save the best for last. I am absolutely IN LOVE with this product!! First of all, the color is gorgeous and matches my skin tone perfectly. Second, I love that is is a gloss in a stick. I have become a sucker for these products lately and was thrilled to have a new brand for my collection. Third, this gloss was SUPER moisturizing. I am talking baby soft lips! And finally, the most important part and the reason I will buy this product over and over, is the smell/taste. I applied the color expecting it to taste like every other lipstick/gloss I have worn but was shocked and amazed when I discovered that it tastes JUST LIKE peaches!!!! No joke, I wanted to sit right there on my bathroom floor and devour the tube like a midnight snack. Ok, so that may sound like a total exaggeration (or hyperbole if I am speaking in my "teacher voice") , but the thought did seriously pass my mind. ;)
If you are debating jumping on the lipgloss stick bandwagon (sorry, yet another "teacher term"), I would definitely start with this one. I have tried several and this one has without a doubt been my absolute favorite.
All in all, Neutrogena makeup products have won me over. I would highly recommend picking up a few items the next time you are out. I hope you love them just as much as I do!
