Eye shadow is another one of those great makeup products that has seen many fashion changes since its conception. Throughout the decades there have been countless colors and even new ways to apply eye shadow. Neutrogena Skin Soothing Eye Tints and Burt’s Bees Natural Cosmetics Eye Shadow are both creamy eye shadow products that go on smooth and look like a powder. I have to admit I was a little wary of trying a creamy eye shadow. Thoughts of gooey eye shadow smeared incorrectly on the lid of my eye seemed daunting. I had tried the eye shadow creamy pencils with no luck. They caked on and never looked natural. I first purchased Neutrogena Skin Soothing Eye Tints, in Petal Shimmer. I enjoyed the product so much I decided to try Burt’s Bees Natural Cosmetics Eye Shadow, which I bought in their Celery color. Although the two products are both eye shadow creams, they do have a few differences that set them apart.
I first tried applying the Neutrogena Skin Soothing Eye Tints with my finger tip on the recommendation of a friend. This has worked really well for me. Petal Shimmer is a soft light color, which I thought would apply easily. The application of this creamy eye shadow did not take any longer than the usual dry powder eye shadow that comes with an applicator wand. When applying the Burt’s Bees Natural Cosmetics Eye Shadow I used both a tiny makeup brush as well as my finger tip. First the make up brush for the corners and then my finger tip for the lid and for smoothing. The color I bought in the Burt’s Bees Natural Cosmetics Eye Shadow is a light green color, Celery, and I just didn’t want it to look sloppy on my eye. Overall though, I do have to say that both apply easily and are relatively easy to control on your eye.
Creamy eye shadow products seem to have been made to blend. The Neutrogena Skin Soothing Eye Tints in Petal Shimmer is absolutely the best base eye shadow perfect for adding other darker colors to. It adds a nice shimmery overall color to your lid and looks very smooth.
Extra Bang for Your Buck
Neutrogena Skin Soothing Eye Tints are creamy and have protein and other ingredients meant to cool and refresh your eye while they reduce puffiness. This is an added feature I honestly wasn’t looking for when buying this product, but I love it. I have said it before and there is nothing I love better than getting two products in one. If you are prone to puffy eyes in the morning or after a late night you should definitley give Neutrogena Skin Soothing Eye Tints in any color a try. While Burt’s Bees Natural Cosmetics Eye Shadow does not necessarily sooth your eye or reduce puffiness, they are well known as a company that does not test their product on animals. So, if you are conscious of those kinds of things, Burt’s Bees Natural Cosmetics Eye Shadow are an affordable make up product that can give you a little piece of mind without draining your wallet. Burt’s Bees Natural Cosmetics Eye Shadow in any color will cost you $9.00. Neutrogena Skin Soothing Eye Tints will also cost your around $9.00. Both can easily be found at almost any drugstore.
Neutrogena Skin Soothing Eye Tints come in a variety of shades and colors ranging from darker blending colors to light neutral colors that are perfect for your entire lid. You will find that Burt’s Bees Natural Cosmetics Eye Shadow are made in a variety of neutral soft palette of shimmery colors that would be great for base eye shadow colors or possibly even teenagers first wearing make up.
