I Am Not a Beauty Blogger

And yet I feel I must "review" this product:



Almay Eye Makeup remover, $5.99. This shit sucks. Does not remove mascara at all and leaves eye area greasier than a McDonald's hash-brown wrapper, despite the "oil-free" claim on the front of the bottle. Ewwww.



I'm totally going back to my previous remover, Maybelline Expert Eyes 100% Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover, $4.59. Does not suck. I decided to try something new because although the Maybelline works pretty well and comes in a container that's small enough, at 2.3 ounces, to be conveniently reusable for air travel, I found myself at the drugstore every other week to replenish. And replenish I shall.

Maybe it really IS Maybelline, huh? Huh??

I also have a love affair with the Neutrogena blue bottle...two sizes too, so you can have a smaller one for travel.

I don't know about the products/brands mentioned, but a product that I think is a 'must have' is Lancome's Cils Booster XL, a base mascara that thickens and lengthens lashes.

I love Lancome, but if I had to have one item, this is what I'd choose.

I have a tube of almay eye make-up remover that is a gel and it is pretty good and I don't have to worry about it leaking. I usually don't buy eye make-up remover, I just use the stuff that always comes in the clinique bonus bag.

Crazy! The Almay eye makeup remover "pads" are one of my favorite products ever(oil free of course). Never tried the bottle though.
