Here it is, my new Can’t-Live-Without-It product!!! For anyone who is ever putting their makeup on in a hurry (yep, that’s all of us), this is a total lifesaver when you’re on the go but don’t want to look unpolished.
Bare Escentual‘s On the Spot eye makeup-remover swabs look like Q-Tips, but these are very special versions: the center tube contains product. There is one end (which is clearly indicated) that you snap off, forcing the product to dispense and quickly soak into the other end of the cotton swab. Clean, efficient, and effective, this magic wand is the answer to hurried applications. You always need to clean things up after you apply eye makeup (the powder of shadow falls down to the cheek, mascara inevitably smears here or there, liquid liner comes out a little shaky). With these swabs, you get the accuracy you have at home.
These will take off anything you put it up against. Yes, that includes waterproof mascara, a HUGE, scary mess if you happen to make a blunder (in the car!). With a gentle formula (free of paraben, sulfates, and alcohol) that includes Aloe vera and Vitamin E to condition your skin, this is a pleasure to use on the move. Plus, they come in a slim case, so you can always have it on hand in your cosmetic pouch. At only $5, it’s a steal that will last you awhile since you won’t be using them each and every day. While you could use it as your daily method, it’s better to save as a corrector when your out since you’ll need more than one swab to do a complete job. At Sephora for $5 (for a set of 24).
