In a world filled with celebrity collaborations, one which stands out is Kerry Washington’s latest endeavor with Neutrogena. The actress and Brand Ambassador has created limited-edition Essential Eye ($12.99) and Cheek ($9.99) Palettes, available on-line at Neutrogena and Ulta Beauty (in-store on April 22nd). Promoting “Confidence, Elegance, and Power,” the creative consultant made sure that the line would work double-time; the 12-hour eyeshadow palette features five blendable shades which contain a built-in primer, while the cheek trio offers a buildable bronzer, blush, and highlighter which multitask as eyeshadow and dusting powder.
“On a busy day, if I keep these two essential palettes in my purse at all times — I can have other products that I toss in and out — but if I have these two, I’m armed with everything I need, no matter who I am, no matter where I’m going,” Washington says. “I wanted it to work for everybody, for every situation, to take the complexity out of it and just have your essential kit.” **SWAG Alert to follow soon!
