I’m not one who usually falls for product hype but damn, is good. I’m talking fresh brownies, extra sleep and Christian Bale in a tuxedo good. So good that peasants gotta bow down and shake before the mighty baby blue bottle! So good that … Okay, okay. You get the picture.
Fear Bi-Facil’s wrath
I picked up a bottle of Bi-Facil on a whim when I popped by the Lancome counter in Union Square to see my favorite Lancome artist, Erin, who is not only a sweet person, but also a fierce brow shaper. Yes, it killed me a bit to throw down the $24.00, but this stuff works, and you barely have to use any of it, just a few drops, to remove even waterproof mascara.
It doesn’t leave me with overly slimy lids like Almay pads. No cloudy vision, either, which was the alarming side effect of .
Even the toughest of eye makeup challenges — Fluidline, MAX Factor 2000 Calorie Waterproof Mascara, MAC Paints — slips off easily. No tugging, no sliminess, nada. I give Bi-Facil a few good shakes, put three drops on a cotton pad and then whoomp, there it is, two buck naked eyelids in a few swipes.
I know the $24.00 price tag is a bit tough to swallow, but, because you only need to use a few drops, a bottle should last a while. I wear eye makeup every day and guess that one bottle will last me between four and six months, which breaks down to about $4-$6 per month.
I like it so much and think it could even replace my former holy grail eye makeup remover, Sephora FACE. This might be true love!
Speaking o’ lurve
Have you seen Enchanted, the new Disney movie with Patrick Dempsey and Amy Adams? I was feeling pretty junk this weekend, but seeing Enchanted lifted my spirit. Now I feel so much better. You can’t go wrong with Disney. It’s a live-action, romantic comedy musical that plays on the Disney princess theme. Just so funny and sweet.
I can’t wait to add it to my cheesy movie list (Brown Sugar, Knotting Hill, My Best Friend’s Wedding) once it comes out on DVD. If you’re in the mood for a happy, curl-up-on-the-couch-on-a-rainy-day kinda movie, check it out.
