The Lipstick League – Week of 8.31.15

Question of the Week: How do you remove your makeup? Traditional makeup removers, cleansing oils, balms, towelettes, natural oils or…?

EauMG’s Answer: I’ve yet to find an eye makeup remover that I love. I ended up mixing olive oil with aloe vera and it’s OK and works for removing stubborn, long-wearing lip colors too. I find that mascara is always difficult for me to remove, even with oil-based products and non-waterproof mascara. Why??? If I’m wearing a lot of makeup (in the summer, I sweat it off anyway), I start with a balm like Pond’s Cold Cream Cleanser or a Korean cleansing oil. I follow-up with a gentle cleanser like CeraVe. And then a toner/lotion. 

Clumps of Mascara – Yep, Fall collections are rolling out and I, for one, am loving what I’m seeing so far. Zoya’s Focus collection is rich, opaque and ooooh, have you seen that brown?
