Nourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow + Built-in Primer

 Neutrogena Nourishing Long Wear Eye Shadow + Built-In Primer 
You guessed it — they combine a primer with a powder eyeshadow for supposedly extra long wear. 

I tried Mink Brown, Smoky Steel and Cocoa Mauve in this product. I am not an expert makeup stylist. I rarely even wear eye shadow because I just cannot be bothered all the time. But I’ve been trying to get more color on my face as I age because my skin is aging and my face looks washed out. I really liked these eye shadows because they were easy to blend, didn’t leave lines between colors and did not glob into my eyelid crease halfway through the day. They did wear off by the end of the day, but there weren’t blank spots, more of a color deterioration slowly throughout the day. I have yet to meet an eye shadow that stays on ALL day in the same strength as when applied. ** product was sent courtesy of Crowdtap for testing purposes and my honest opinion.


  • There are six different quads/color combinations — Cool Plum, Soft Taupe, Smoky Steel, Cocoa Mauve, Mink Brown and Classic Nude — available now at drugstores and online for $9.49 each.
  • Pigment ranges from sheer to medium, depending on the color
  • The Cocoa Mauve and Classic Nude quad shadows have a satiny finish that’s very forgiving of mah fine lines (thank you very much).
