Review: Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Duo in Sunlit Sage 60

Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Duo in Sunlit Sage 60 ($7.50 ~ .64 oz.): 

Hello everyone! Today I'll be reviewing an eyeshadow duo that I've actually had around for awhile, but never used too often. I bought it for a Christmas party (not for this past Christmas, but multiple Christmases ago...yes I know keeping "expired" eyeshadow is bad, but I hate waste!) and didn't like the way it came out. When I used it, it looked really sheer. However, for this St. Patrick's Day, I really wanted a fun eyeshadow look, especially since the party I was going to was a 1920s St. Patrick's Day party. I decided to give it a second chance, and I LOVED the way it turned out. Maybe because I was using a different, newer eyeshadow brush that possibly picked up more color, maybe because this time I pat on the eyeshadow rather than doing a sweep over my lid. I don't know, but I was really happy and even received compliments on the look! 

And of course, it comes with the awful, cheap little applicator that no one uses. I feel bad throwing them out, so they just sit in the case collecting bacteria. If companies eliminated the little applicators, do you think it would cut a few dollars from the price? Because they really don't do a good job of applying makeup, and chances are, if the person wears makeup, they'll have their own brushes (or they'll just use their fingers). 

Neutrogena claims that it "conditions with soy, silk, and vitamins A, C, and E" and "brightens with optical luminzers." Apparently, it's also dermatologist-tested and safe for sensitive eyes. That's all well and good, I suppose, but I didn't really notice too much of a difference. However, these eyeshadows are pretty soft and silky as far as drugstore eyeshadows go, so maybe that's the "soy, silk, and vitamins." Who knows?. They're not up to the quality of Urban Decay or MAC, of course, but I'm really pleased with the quality overall.

Neutrogena Nourishing Eye Duos can be found at Walmart or any kind of drugstore. You can also find them on Amazon, but I don't typically buy my makeup from there because you usually have to buy it in two-packs or something silly like that.

Have you rediscovered something that you previously disliked and now really like?
