Fifth Product Completed: Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover

I just finished my fifth product and ran to the computer to write this! I feel like it's been so long! The product I finished was the Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover. This is a fantastic eye makeup remover, especially for the price. It's great at getting rid of even the toughest waterproof makeup and it's under $10! Could you ask for more? I found this better than even the Lancome Bi-facils. Shocking, I know. Needless to say I will definitely be repurchasing this when I've finished my other, more expensive, eye makeup removers.

The only down side to this product was the oily residue it leaves. The container claims that it's not but yeah... Nothing a little water can't fix though.

What's your favourite eye makeup remover?

7 Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag

This beauty tag has been going on for a while now on both YouTube as well as on blogs. I figured in the spirit of my project pan I would do this tag just to see exactly what I've spent money on. I will give multiple answers for some.

1.     Greed. What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

My most inexpensive beauty products are: Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Make-up Remover, Vanilla Body Wash, Face Wipes, Eye Wipes, and Revlon Lipstick.

My most expensive beauty products are probably perfumes with my Chanel Chance Eau Tendre being the most expensive (I think). In terms of skincare my Clarins Extra-Firming Eye Contour Serum. My most expensive make-up product was my Dior Capture Totale foundation.

2.     Wrath. What beauty products do you have a love/ hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?

The products I have a love/ hate relationship with are the Neostrata Toning Solution Level 2 (great for during breakouts, too drying any other time), Clarins Foaming Cleanser with Cottonseed (takes long to wash off but gets everything off).

The product that was the hardest to get was the Clarins eye shadow single in Desert Blonde because it was discontinued. It is a fabulous pinky nude colour perfect for under my brows.

3.     Gluttony. What is your most delicious beauty product?

My most delicious beauty products are: Urban Decay Marshmellow body powder, Clarins Gloss Prodige.

4.     Sloth. What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?

I often neglect to use my face mask/ oil twice a week, and to using a setting spray for my make-up. I also need to make time to apply my body products out of the shower.

5.     Pride. What beauty product gives you the most self-confidence?

The beauty product that gives me the most self-confidence I’d have to say is bright lipstick. I always feel extra sassy with a colour like Pink Vibrations from Elizabeth Arden on. In terms of what would I not leave the house without my answer would be concealer.

6.     Lust. What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex? Since this is not beauty related I will come up with something different…What beauty product do you believe is the most attractive (i.e. colour, packaging, etc.)?

Lancome Limited Edition Blush, Anna Sui Nail Polish, Shu Uemura eye shadow quad, Clarins Enchanted Eye Shadow Quad, Mac Wonderwoman quad, Physician's Formula Happy Booster.

7.     Envy. What items would you most like to receive as a gift?

Most people choose perfume here but I’d prefer to receive a body product or some limited edition make-up.

Now I tag you! What are your 7 Deadly Sins of Beauty?
