*NEW* Neutrogena Force of Nature eye and lip palettes by Kerry Washington

Neutrogena has a brand new lip palette as well as a brand new eyeshadow palette. I have never tried Neutrogena eye and lip products, but I love their facial care line as well as their Clear Skin Foundation. I have never really seen them as a cosmetics brand. I have always placed them more into skin care, but they are starting to really put themselves squarely into the cosmetics competition.

First, of course, lets talk about the packaging. I love it! It is absolutely beautiful! The cases are plastic and have Kerry Washington’s signature on the outside. The signature is done in the colors that are inside the palette which is really neat.  Also, at $12.99 each palette, they are at a very good price point compared to other palettes.

 

FORCE OF NATURE EYESHADOW PALETTE

   If you have been reading my blog long, you know that I have extremely sensitive eyelids. In fact, I have passed up some new palettes because I just know I will have an allergic reaction. I decided to go ahead and try this one because it comes from a brand that is known for its qualities for sensitive skin and skin prone to breakouts. This also is a little different for me because it is a very neutral palette. I am not a neutral person. I DEF586DB-9EF8-45EF-9B42-FD09641C4171love, love, love color palettes!! I figured it wouldn’t hurt to have one neutral palette though. The palette says they have built in primer, but I noticed that they still look much better when using a liquid primer first. The first 2 colors don’t show up on my skin, but they make good setting powders for the primer. The darker colors are very pretty and really can make a beautiful smoky eye! I have done a few looks with them and I love how easy they are to apply and you can have a great look very quickly. They are a little powdery and they have some kick up in the pan, but not too bad considering the price point.

 

FORCE OF NATURE LIP PALETTE

I only have one other lip palette, which is the Smashbox ablaze one. The thing I love about that one is that it comes with a brush and a place to keep the brush in the palette so it is easy to take on the go. This one does not come with a brush nor a place to put one in the palette. I don’t like using my fingers to apply things like this. If you take it on the go, you have to take a brush separately and then try to find a way to wipe it off before putting it in your makeup bag or it will get all over everywhere. So, that is really the only bad thing I have to say about this palette. These smell so good. They have some pomegranate and mango extract in them which gives them a great fruity smell. The colors are all beautiful and they apply very smoothly with a brush. I m not crazy about a matte lip, so I always top them with a gloss, but they look so pretty. They aren’t crazy colors like I tend to wear often, but they are beautiful rosey colors.

7C9252CD-6F60-4EC5-A48F-19C99BD1209B  I have used these several times and still have not had an allergic reaction. I am so excited about that! I love both of these palettes and will continue to reach for them. I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a great product that doesn’t cost a lot of money.

 

These are available anywhere Neutrogena cosmetics are sold.

    I like the color choices of both the eyes and lips… I tend to go for the neutral shades for a more natural look (so the colors should work well).

  12. I seldom wear eye shadows because they always seem to make my eyes itch since I too have very sensitive skin plus allergies. I bought a different brand of eye shadow a few months ago and was irritated that they didn’t have brushes or even space for them inside the pack.
