Yesterday I brought you my review of Garnier Fructis’ Triple Protection Shampoo and Conditioner. Today I bring a review of one my favorite things on earth – makeup! More specifically Neutrogena Cosmetics – Revitalizing Lip Balm, Nourishing Eyeliner and Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector (all shown below).
As a part of BzzAgent, I was accepted into the Neutrogena Campaign, and waited for the for my free products to arrive in the mail so I could review them. I have to admit, I was really excited about this campaign. I’m a “girly -girl,” so a cosmetics review is right up my alley.
My knowledge of Neutrogena as a brand before the campaign - really good skin care. I knew they carried cosmetics, but I had never tried them. I guess now was the time!
And then the package came in the mail! Oh la la! I just couldn’t wait for morning to come to try the makeup out, so I had to try all the components out that very evening!
First, the Neutrogena’s Healthy Skin Eye Perfector (better known as under-eye concealer). This stuff does exactly what it says its going to do… brighten and conceal, without being cakey like many other concealers. I like the dispenser too, all you do is twist a couple clicks, and a little come out onto the flow-through brush (enough for both eyes!). And, it is formulated with UVA/UVB SPF 25, to protect that sensitive skin around the eyes from the harsh sun. This retails for $11.99 at any local drugstore or big box store, and I think it’s well worth it.
Next up, the Neutrogena’s Nourishing Eye Liner.
I received the black to review, which is good, because that’s what I wear. I like it, the liner goes on smooth and dark (although I personally like a bit of thinner line when applying for precise application, but this one is OK), and has good smudge-ability. It’s infused with olive oil and rain-forest shea butter to condition the delicate skin around the lashes. This Eye Liner will run you about $7.49 at your local drugstore, big box store.This Eye Liner is available is black, pewter, chocolate, and twilight blue. I
And finally, last but not least, Neutrogena’s Revitalizing Lip Balm. I really like the texture of these lips balms. They are very smooth, and go on in a perfectly-thin layer (not thick, messy, and in globs like some waxy-ish lip balms I have tried in the past). I also love the tint of color – just enough to give some life to the lips, but not so much the color looks fake. This will run you about $8.49 retail. And because it has a touch of color and SPF 20 in it, this great lip balm could replace more than one product in your arsenal (gotta love that!).
I really, really, enjoyed reviewing these Neutrogena Cosmetics, and have to say, the Healthy Skin Eye Perfector and Lip Balm are here to stay in my makeup bag. Well, at least the concealer will be at home for the morning routine, and the lip in my purse so I have it with me at all times! Thanks BzzAgent for a great campaign!
