You can’t turn on the TV without seeing Maybelline 24 Hour Color Tattoo eye-shadow commercials every 5 minutes. Other bloggers have given it high rating, and Temptalia gave it an ‘A’. The shadow claims to last for 24 hours, although the golden rule is to never sleep in your makeup! It is available at drugstore.com for $8.
This beauty staple has won too many beauty industry awards to list. Other brands have tried to construct fancy brushes, fiddle with the ingredients and create fancy packaging, but this $5.19 drugstore icon still remains the bestselling mascara on the market.
When it comes to mascara, you get what you pay for! For $4.49 on drugstore.com, you can get the Milani Easyliner Retractable Pencil. I love an eyeliner that glides on smoothly and doesn’t have to be sharpened!
Speaking of removing your makeup, this oil free makeup remover from trusted skin care line Neutrogena is one of my personal favorites. One cotton ball’s worth is usually all that is needed to remove eye makeup. I’ve used others that you really had to work hard to get your mascara and liner off with, but this really gets the job done. It’s available for $7.99.
After you wash off your eye makeup, treat eyes with Olay’s Age Defying eye gel. For $7.99, you get a product packed with vitamin B5, witch hazel and cucumber that will reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes. It’s never too early to defend your skin against the signs of aging!
