Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner Review

Today I'm reviewing the Neutrogena Nourishing Eyeliner. I purchased this in the Twilight Blue shade, a really gorgeous deep sapphire blue. I have enough black and brown eyeliners to last a lifetime and thought a deep navy would be a nice change up. If done correctly, a navy eyeliner can be very flattering and modern.

 The reason this really caught my eye was because of the product description from Neutrogena:

Neutrogena® Nourishing Eyeliner defines and brightens eyes with luminous color. Subtle light diffusers make the whites of eyes appear whiter, while rich color nourishes skin with Olive Oil and Rainforest Shea Butter. The built-in sharpener gives precise definition and the contoured smudger softens and blends for a variety of looks.
  • Infused with olive oil and rainforest shea butter to condition the delicate skin around your lashes
  • Creamy automatic pencil glides on smoothly, then transforms into long-lasting finish that won't budge
  • Built-in sharpener and smudger allow to create the perfect look--from precise definition to smoky effect
Sold right? Yeah, me too.

I think the subtle shimmer in the blue does make your eyes look whiter, at least it did on me and I have fairly light grey eyes. The other colors are a black, a brown and a charcoal grey.

I was a little disappointed in the texture of this. With all that olive oil and shea butter I thought this would be a little creamier, or glide on a little easier. It definitely took some pressure to get the color as dark as I wanted it but I suppose if you want long wearing you can't have it be too soft or you will get transfer and smearing. So, that's a fair trade off. I do feel like this wears longer on my eyes than the ColorStay eyeliner did.

Here it is swatched on my hand, next to Revlon ColorStay eyeliner in black to show the color.

The tube itself is interesting, it's almost dainty. Very slender and easy to use.

Overall, I'd say that I was intrigued by the concept of these eyeliners and the one I purchased didn't disappoint. I would definitely repurchase in one of the other shades. I don't know how "nourishing" an eyeliner will actually be on my eye skin in the 8 hours a day I wear it, but it can't hurt to try right?
