Neutrogena For Your Makeup Obsessed BFF!

bestiesThis is a sponsored post on behalf of Neutorgena, I received compensation for writing it, however, all opinions are my own. At Prime Beauty, I only write about products I believe in and trust.

I met my best friend Linda over 17 years ago when we were working at the same place. We bonded over our kids being the same age, shopping and MAKEUP! We’ve celebrated our children’s accomplishments, personal milestones both good and bad and been on trips together. She’s my female soulmate!

My obsession with makeup began in my teens and has grown through the years. I think Linda’s began at a department store makeover we both had on one of our legendary shopping trips. Though Linda loves makeup as much as I do, I am the one who researches ingredients and since I’m in the ‘beauty business’ she relies on me to make recommendations to her.

My first tip is that you don’t need to spend a ton of money on makeup! There are so many great drugstore brands that are high quality and effective. Neutrogena is a fabulous inexpensive brand that I recommend often. They have a wide range of cosmetics, skincare and hair care that really deliver!

I’m especially fond of the Neutrogena® Nourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow +Built-in Primer. These shadows combine a built-in primer to help prevent creasing and smudging while keeping the color from fading. They have even been tested to last up to 12 hours! The formula is infused with vitamins and skin-nourishing conditioners for the delicate eye area. Available in six color coordinated shades, each compact has four colors to complement any eye color. I’m amazed at how creamy the shadows are and how well they blend. In addition, I love the pretty finish–most have a lovely satin finish, others a beautiful sheen, a few of the softer shades are matte yet still creamy–hard to accomplish, especially at this price!

My bestie Linda likes to wear neutrals and sometimes purples so I recommend Cocoa Mauve, Cool Plum and Mink Brown. For those date nights with the Hubby Smoky Steel makes for a sexy smoky eye.

Neutrogena® MoistureSmooth Color Sticks are my favorite drugstore lip crayons–I’m so addicted I think I have every one of the 16 shades! These instantly moisturize and condition the lips to keep them soft and smooth. Made with fruit extracts along with mango and shea butter, the balm-like formula glides on easily, providing a sheer wash of moisturizing color. The color payoff is perfection: with one swipe of the stick, my lips are instantly awash with pigmentation. I like that they twist up so they don’t require a sharpener, and I find the size of the stick makes application a faster process. One swipe, and you’re done! I love them so much I’ve been through three of Fresh Papaya and Watermelon. Shades 10-80 have a sheer & shimmery finish, and NEW shades 90-180 have a bold & creamy finish. I have ALL the new shades to show you today!

Here at Prime Beauty headquarters, we are head over stilettos for these! Blythe and I both wear them on a regular basis and we each have our favs. I prefer the lighter shades and Blythe loves the deep shades. Here is Blythe sporting a few–you can see how pigmented and glossy they are!

Neutrogena® Nourishing Eyeliner defines and brightens eyes with luminous color. Subtle light diffusers make the whites of eyes appear whiter, while rich color helps to define the eyes. What makes these eyeliners different is the formula: Olive Oil and Rainforest Shea Butter nourish the delicate eye area. They are smooth and don’t skip on older eyes. The built-in sharpener gives precise definition and the contoured smudger softens and blends for a variety of looks.

Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes effectively dissolve all traces of dirt, oil and makeup—even waterproof mascara—for clean, fresh skin in one easy step. With one step, it leaves skin thoroughly clean with no heavy residue, so there’s no need to rinse. And it’s gentle enough to use around the sensitive eye area, even for contact lens wearers. I can honestly say these are the only makeup wipes I use because they don’t dry out my skin. I ALWAYS recommend these for those lazy nights when you don’t want to take the time for your entire skincare routine, but need to take off your makeup quickly.
