Product Review: Neutrogena Crease Proof Eye Shadow, B-

Happy Monday to all! Up for product review today is an eye shadow I received as a BzzAgent - Neutrogena Crease Proof Eye Shadow. This convenient eyeshadow is served up in a twistable, crayon like form and retails for $8.99.

About Neutrogena Crease Proof Eye Shadow:

Anti-Oxidant Rich Formula Nourishes the Delicate Eye Area
  • Built-in primer prevents creasing, fading & smudging
  • Cream shadow instantly revives & brightens eyes
  • Sheer silky color with light reflecting pearls instantly brightens eyes
  • Ophthalmologist tested.  Safe for sensitive eyes.

My Review:

The Good: I love the concept - an easy to apply, sheer but pretty wash of color for the lids that doesn't crease or fade. And yes, this delivers on those fronts. It's goof proof and the Lasting Taupe (muted silvery taupe) is especially pretty layered under a smokey eye and smudged on the lower lash line.

The Bad: Well, the wash of color is incredibly subtle. As in the Constant Copper looked more like ballerina pink on my medium skin tone - read: barely shows up. It's also worth noting that you should avoid layering the crease proof shadow on top of itself as it will start an ugly product buildup.

The Verdict: B-. For an eyeshadow base, this is a pretty sweet product. However, if you're looking for true color impact, go ahead and skip this option.
