When it comes to makeup, I ooh and ah over every smoky eye and contoured cheekbone. Then I wake up late for work and barely have time to put on shoes, let alone carefully craft a beautiful face. That's why I love my Neutrogena Shimmer Sheers so much. It's equally useful as eyeshadow, blush and gloss, and I can slick it on with a finger in between subway stops.
The finish is lightly powdery without feeling cakey, which is crucial for my sensitive skin. And the bronze color "Mystified" adds just enough color that people at the office say, "You're looking nice!" rather than, "Do you have malaria?" For less than ten dollars to perk up my whole face, this is a bargain I plan on keeping in my purse for a long time.
Price: Originally $9, now on sale for $8.
