Review - Maybelline Clean Express Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover

Official Description - Go from Fierce to Fresh-Faced...Fast! Oil-free, dual phase formula leaves no greasy residue. Quick dissolving power with no harsh rubbing.

» Price -  Lowest price $4.97 at Walmart, $5.99 at Ulta
» Availability - Walmart, Ulta, Target
» Review - Maybelline has just released their new Clean Express! Line. This remover comes in a classic eye, waterproof eye, cream formula and wipes version. I opted for the waterproof version because my eyeliner is waterproof. With standard makeup wipes it takes a lot of rubbing and tugging to get my liner off. It's never a good sign when you see a few eyelashes on the wipe either. So I always have to have a separate product to remove my eye makeup.

I think it's a pretty good deal for 4oz of product! First you shake the bottle to mix the solution together and pour a tiny bit out onto a cotton round. I gently rub it around my eyes and it melts away all of my waterproof liner. It does smear it around a bit but after a few rubbings it wipes it completely clean. I love that it does not leave a greasy oily feeling that I get with other removers that I have tried. So far this has been the best price point and most effective eye makeup remover that I have used on my eyes.

Swatch of The Day - OCC Lip Tar in Clockwork

» Price -  $18
» Overall Rating - It is described as a rich terracotta with vivid orange undertones. This lip tar is part of OCC's Sci-Fi Lullabies Collection. It has a matte finish. This particular color was inspired by the book/movie A Clockwork Orange. I am in love with this color! Perfect for Spring & Summer. Not too vibrant and not too pale. My favorite lip tar from the Sci-Fi Lullabies collection.

MAC Fashion Sets Swatches - Ablaze & Heroine

Today MAC Cosmetics launched their new limited edition collection Fashion Sets. It had an early release online and it hit all MAC stores/counters today. I was impressed with the entire collection but I only wanted two of the four lipsticks that launched. I picked up the highly anticipated Heroine & Ablaze. I bought a backup of Heroine because I love purple lipsticks so much. After swatching Ablaze I regret not getting a backup of that color. It is stunning! 

Did any of you pick up goodies from this collection?
