Review – Klorane Waterproof eye make-up remover

4 Oct

 Klorane Waterproof eye make-up remover with *bonus* soothing cornflower.

klorane

I received this sample in my Birchbox.  You can also get it from Sephora and it retails for $16.00 for a little over 3 fl oz.

What they claim:

What it is:
A bi-phase waterproof eye makeup remover with soothing cornflower.

What it does:
This gentle formula quickly removes all types of long-lasting makeup, even waterproof, and strengthens eyelashes without any oily residue. It is suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers, and is enriched with cornflower extract to soothe and decongest.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates

What else you need to know:
This product is also hypoallergenic, ophthalmologist and dermatologist tested, silicone-free, phenoxyethanol-free, and vegan. It is formulated to reduce the risk of allergy.

Since the 12th century, cornflower has been used for its medicinal properties to relieve tired and irritated eyes. Its blue color was considered a token for healthy eyes.

Research results:
In a clinical study on eyelash loss after daily application of Klorane Waterproof Eye Make-Up Remover for 2 weeks:
– 75% reduction in eyelash loss was measured

My thoughts:

I will just come out and say it; this is probably the best eye make-up remover I’ve ever used.  There is absolutely no eye sting. Zero.   Nada.  Zilch.  My eyes don’t water, burn, itch.  NOTHING.

Does it remove eye make-up?

Yes, as good as any other eye make up remover.  Go over the eyelid a few times, let it soak into the lashes a bit and you are make-up free.

Do you have a reduction in eyelash loss?

Actually, maybe.  I had noticed the other day that I am losing less eyelashes.

Does it stay oily after using?

No

Will I purchase?

Yes, very much a yes.

Review! Starlooks Obsidian Kohl Eye Pencil

19 Sep

Thank you Ipsy Glam Bag for September 2013!

I received a Starlooks lip liner in a previous Glam Bag, and I was happy with it.  It was smooth and creamy, and didn’t chalk or flake.

BUT, eye liner is a whole different ball game.  And I was hoping that the Starlooks Obsidian Kohl Eye Pencil would live up to the high standards of its lip liner cousin.

$12.00 USD

From Starlooks:

Dramatically emphasize your eyes with Starlooks’ intensely-pigmented Kohl Eye pencils! These ultra-soft liners glide across delicate lids without pulling. Try a smokey effect by blending outwards with a fluffy brush! Each extremely creamy Kohl Liner can also be used as a base on the entire lid. Impossible to choose between 10 stunning and super saturated shades!

My review:

This is a really nice dark rich black.  It lives up to every promise the company makes!  It’s smooth, it’s soft, and it lasts.

I tried to smudge it with a fluffy brush as Starlooks advises and it came out really nice!  Check it out:

This is a corporate work look, so I did’t go very heavy.  I used the Obsidian Kohl Eye Pencil on the top and bottom lids.

I’m also wearing a light pink eye shadow on the lids.

I’ve work it without eye shadow as well, and with my NYX HD Primer it stays on pretty well.  However, the eye shadow holds in in place a bit better.  BUT, I have really oily eye lids.  If you are not me, this probably wouldn’t be an issue for you.

I was hoping they carry the liner in purple, but no luck.

If this was the last crayon eye liner I could ever purchase, I would be very happy 🙂

What’s your favorite eye liner?
