Taking off eye makeup with just regular soap and water doesn’t cut it, so a great eye makeup remover is a must. The first one I tried (as a suggestion from my mom) was Lancome’s BI-FACIL. Eye makeup removal with this is a snap–I usually put some on a q-tip after shaking the bottle to mix the 2 solutions, and everything comes off in one swipe. However at $26.00 (4.2 oz.), it wasn’t always in my budget.
Next up, I tried Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover. It caught my eye because just like Lancome’s BI-FACIL, it had 2 solutions that needed to be shaken before use. The $7.99 (5.5 oz.) price tag didn’t hurt either! I found that Neutrogena’s Oil-Free Makeup Remover worked just as well as the BI-FACIL.
Now last night, I was about to pick up another bottle of Neutrogena, when I noticed the CVS brand Oil-Free Make-Up Remover right next to it. Since it looked very similar to Neutrogena, I decided to give it a whirl since it was $5.99 (6.4 oz.). And to my surprise, it worked just as well as the Neutrogena and Lancome.
CVS Oil Free Make-Up Remover is the clear winner here with a great product at a low price.
Making a quick run into CVS keeps getting harder as they add more top shelf beauty brands.
Today I noticed they had my favorite nail polish brand, Essie, displayed. Although the color selection was skimpy…it’s a start!
Wearing makeup as a teen was always a struggle in my household. My older sister wasn’t allowed to wear makeup until she was a sophomore in high school—if that. And I’m not talking full out makeup…maybe a light lip gloss or blush if my mom was in a good mood.
I had it a little easier and started wearing lip gloss in maybe 8th grade. But again, it had to be very natural looking colors. I didn’t even touch eyeliner until I was probably 23–it honestly scared me because I had no experience using it.
Back then, I thought my mom was being cruel and was out to make my teenage years miserable. Now I’m thankful. These days I can’t help but to get aggravated to see Kris Jenner allowing her daughters Kylie,13, and Kendall, 15, look so grown, with body hugging clothes and heavy makeup. I understand it’s Hollywood, but these girls look like grown women…even in their Christmas cards. Meanwhile, I’m trying to revert back to looking like a 15 year old.
Check out these recent photos of Kylie and Kendall:
Real Housewife of Beverly Hills, Adrienne Maloof, has been rocking tinsel hair strands this season. Maloof gets them put in at the Palms in Michael Boychuk’s AMP Salon. Especially with the holiday season here, would you rock some bling in you hair?
