Eye Makeup Remover Reviews

Here’s for Loraine =)

Botanics Soothing Eye Make-Up Remover ($5.99)
This is hands down the best dual-phase eye makeup remover in the market considering how cheap it is. It contains Iceland moss extract to hydrate and calm the skin and oil to remove stubborn eye makeup, including waterproof mascara. It also feels very gentle on the skin and is never too drying or too oily. I highly recommended this for all types of skin.

Chanel Precision Gentle Biphase Eye Makeup Remover ($27.50)
Like Lancome’s Bi-facil, this comes in a dual-phase formula. It contains water cornflower extract and water rose extract to soothe and calm the eye area. It is also fragrance-free and does not leave a oily film like Lancome’s and it never stings. It is pretty effective but a tad expensive for an eye makeup remover so I say get it only if you have the extra money.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (~$3)
People have been using this to remove waterproof mascara and the most stubborn makeup since forever. It is extremely gentle, non-irritating, cheap, widely available and works just as well as your department store makeup removers. I used this last night and my eye makeup came right off after one swipe. If you wear contacts like I do, however, remember to take them out before using it – the oil can mess up your contacts.

L’oreal Gentle Eye Make Up Remover ($6)
Since Lancome is owned by L’oreal, their products usually share a similar, if not, the same formula. I *loved* Bi-facil so I picked this one up, hoping it would be a great knock-off but boy was I wrong! Compared to Lancome’s Bi-facil, this definitely feels drier on my skin. It does remove my eye makeup but for heavier makeup, you would need a few more swipes. It also does not do anything to waterproof mascaras and made my eyes all dry and itchy. I am so staying away from this one!

Chanel Teint Fluide Universel Multi-vitamin Natural Makeup SPF 15 Review

Chanel Teint Fluide Universel Multi-vitamin Natural Makeup SPF 15 ($42) was one of my very first foundations and definitely one of my favorites. I liked this so much I even wore it to my high school graduation!

MAC Face And Body Foundation Review

A cult product on the runway, MAC Face And Body Foundation ($30) is a water-based, water-resistant foundation that claims to provide long-lasting, natural coverage for the face and body.

MAC Studio Tech Review

I have always preferred liquid foundations but when EVERYONE raved about MAC Studio Tech ($27.50), I had to find out what it is all about.

Laura Mercier Moisturizing Foundation ($40) used to be my holy grail foundation.
