I don’t know why I always forget how much I love Neutrogena products. Really. There was a winter (’09 – ’10) in which my skin absolutely took a nosedive. It was dry as a bone. To the point where my forehead and cheeks literally HURT. To the point where I would slather my face in moisturizer, and 10 minutes later it would all be sucked completely in, and my skin would feel just as stretched and taut as if I hadn’t put anything on it in the first place.
So after my debacle with the E.L.F. tinted moisturizer, I went to CVS and headed for the Neutrogena shelf. And despite my wariness about spending the money, I picked up the Healthy Skin Glow Sheer (Ivory-Fair shade) and gave it a whirl. This is the result:
Goes on very light, I can barely feel it, and my face doesn’t itch or feel cakey. Plus it is almost my exact skin tone match. Winner! At almost $14, it wasn’t cheap, but the amount I need for daily use is about the side of a fingernail, so it will last quite a while.
I also picked up a concealer stick and liquid eyeliner (NYC). The concealer is working for me, the liquid eyeliner…ehhhhhhh. There’s a learning curve, that’s all I can say. I really lack the time to practice right now, but I’ll get there. Practice makes perfect, right?
I have a Halloween/birthday party to go to tomorrow night, and I really REALLY want to imitate this eye makeup:
You know where this is going, don’t you? Stay tuned this weekend for a “nailed it” comparison shot. At least I can laugh at myself.
