Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector – Love it or Leave it?

To say I’ve been obsessed lately with moisturizing my skin and brightening my complexion would be a huge understatement. Winter takes a toll on the skin and I find that I’m constantly fighting the dry air and dulling affect it has on my skin. So when I saw Neutrogena’s new Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector, I thought I’d give it a try.

The packaging reminds me of Bobbi Brown’s new Tinted Eye Brightener in that is a click-pen style with a brush affixed.  In fact, I was hoping I would love it as much as I love Bobbi Brown’s version because it’s about $25 less! It’s available in a range of shades, and I picked it up in Fair.

Sadly, I don’t love this product. In fact, I’m not even sure I like it. It certainly has potential, but the formula is incredibly thick. It’s intended to be used as both a concealer and a brightener – so it pulls double duty – but the formula consistency makes it incredibly difficult to blend. I do like that it includes SPF 25, but can’t help but think it somehow impacts the consistency. I worked with this for a few days before I finally gave up. It just sat underneath my eyes and I never felt like I was able to really blend it into my skin. It is better when mixed with an eye cream but that’s a step I don’t think you should have to add with this type of product.

My verdict is to “leave it.” I think there are other products out there that can do a better job.

  1. Hi Cindy! We posted about Bobbi’s Makeup Face Lift Collection – but haven’t specifically reviewed the new eye pen. However – I’m a long-time user of the potted version of Bobbi’s tinted eye brightener and I love it!

  2. Thanks, Laurie. I did a post on the BB Face Lift collection too but haven’t purchased anything from that collection yet. Guess I need to visit the counter again adn investigate the eye brightener pen.

    I adore the Cabana Corals collection and a lot of that is on my wishlist. Have you seen the lip & eye palette from the CC collection? To die for!

  3. Hey Cindy! I just checkout your post on Cabana Corals:) Carla and I are dying over this one – we’re so darn excited. I need to get myself to Neiman’s to check out the palette in person. This one is going to be dangerous – I sort of want all of it!

  4. LOL! I know, I want it all too. Let’s see for sure the lip & eye palette, the cream blush, a few lipsticks, at least one lip gloss and maybe a shimmerbrick–although at my age those tend to be a bit too shimmery for me. Me likey!!

  5. I just wanted to make a suggestion…a wonderful product for under eye brightening and it can be used for eye shadow base is by Clarins. It is called Instant Light Eye Perfecting Base, and it is $24.50. It lasts a long long time…and the application brush is wonderful.
