BI-FACIL - Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover ($26, Lancome)

If you wear eyeliner, shadow and especially mascara on a regular basis, then you know that a good eye makeup remover is key. If you don’t have one, expect to wake up every morning looking like a racoon.

Lancome’s BI-FACIL Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover is specifically designed for waterproof makeup. Even on days when I’m wearing several coats of the most durable waterproof mascara, one or two minutes of patting my eyes with a cotton pad dipped in this magic liquid and POOF–all that yucky black stuff is gone.

At $26, it’s definitely not the cheapest eye makeup remover you’ll find but it’s worth it.I use BI-FACIL very liberally and one bottle still manages to last me at least two months. I’ve been using BI-FACIL for years and swear by it.¬† Without it, I think I probably wouldn’t have any eyes left.

L’Oreal HIP Kohl Eyeliner

L'Oreal HIP Kohl Eyeliner, $13

Eye makeup would be, without a doubt, one of my “deserted island” must haves. I’ll gladly give up the bronzer and the lip gloss if I could just have my trusty black eyeliner. With that said, I’m on a never-ending quest to find that perfect one that requires minimal reapplication.

This weekend I saw an ad for L’Oreal’s HIP Kohl Eyeliner and, of course, could not resist trying it. I’m often cautious of drugstore makeup for a variety of reasons. In the case of eyeliner, I feel that it tends to lack that all-day wear power. However, the HIP collection is part of L’Oreal’s higher priced products, on average marked at $10. So, I decided to give this eyeliner a shot.

The verdict on HIP Kohl Eyeliner: fabulous! It has a a pointed applicator that draws a perfectly sized line that is not too thick or too thin. The applicator is very easy to maneuver, allowing me to neatly connect the top and bottom lash lines at the outer corner without having to press down really hard. The kohl powder leaves a soft, not too defined line  perfect for smoky eyes.

When I use a pencil eyeliner, I always fortify the line with a layer of dark eyeshadow, which tends to smudge after a short period of time. However, after several hours of wearing L’Oreal Kohl Eyeliner, there was minimal smudging.

Because I’m into really intense, pronounced eye makeup, I chose the Black Kohl color. It alsocomes in other colors such as gold and brown, so there is something to suit every eye color and style. Enter the price – $13 – into the equation and you’ve got a winner.
