I've been a member of this website called Bzzagent.com for several months now. You basically take surveys about yourself, your lifestyle, interests, etc, and they match you up with campaigns. You receive stuff in the mail and then you have these tasks to do like writing reviews, blogging, uploading pictures and other things. It's always different, so it never gets boring! Anyway, this week, we're doing a Neutrogena campaign. In the mail yesterday, I received a fun little kit with two Neutrogena Crease Proof Eye Shadows in the shades "Lasting Taupe" and "Constant Copper", the MoistureSmooth Color Stick in "Sweet Watermelon" and Healthy Lengths Mascara in "Black". Here's a shot of the products before I greedily tore them open!
I tried the Crease Proof Eye Shadows first. I'm always afraid cream shadow sticks are going to crease on me, despite the name, but I'm happy to report that these lasted almost an entire day without me having to re-blend. I tried "Constant Copper" first and was a little bit disappointed at first when I realized that the shade is actually not copper at all, but a very pale shimmery champagne color that is barely visible on my eyelids. This is a great base color for those with fair skin and I think it would be very striking on those with darker skin tones. I REALLY like the "Lasting Taupe" shade. It is true to its name and is a beautiful and easy to wear taupe shade. It's not the most exciting color ever, but it's an easy everyday staple almost anyone could wear. All in all, they're fun, easy-to-apply shadows that last!
The Neutrogena Healthy Lengths Mascara is supposed to condition and strengthen your lashes over time, so I can't really judge it to its full potential yet. As of right now, it is a very basic mascara, in my opinion. There's really nothing special about the overall look after it's applied. The "black" shade is not actually very black at all. It's more a dark charcoal color. It doesn't seem to have any volumizing properties, although it doesn't claim to either. It definitely lengthens your lashes as most mascaras do and I'm happy to say that it doesn't irritate my very sensitive eyes AT ALL. That is the biggest plus with this one. I will continue to use it and report back any changes in the actual condition of my lashes.
The Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick is my very favorite thing in this kit. It applies smoothly and is very moisturizing and comfortable on my lips. I'm a lipblam JUNKIE and I found myself applying it less often when I wore this! That's fabulous! It also tastes SO good, kind of like tropical fruit candy. The packaging is also wonderful. It's like a big, chunky pencil that you don't have to sharpen. I definitely love this and will be buying more shades!
