Rimmell eye makeup remover Scandaleyes liner

Since I have three daughters, I have seen a lot of makeup products come and go in my household.  Many times the items don’t live up to their claims and aren’t worth the money I paid for them.  That’s why I am always willing to give my honest review in exchange for free products to try out.  I get to sample the items without spending any money out of pocket to find out if they are worth buying or not.  In my FrostyVoxBox, complements of Influenster, they sent me the Rimmel Just Let It Go gentle eye makeup remover and also a Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal eyeliner pencil in black.

The eyeliner pencil says that it is waterproof which is interesting.  I am not even sure if there is an eyepencil like that out there already.  Anyhow, after trying it out I can definitely say that it stays put better than other eyeliners.  It doesn’t smudge easily but it does still smudge.  I can see using this for defining lines but if you are looking for an eyeliner that blends easily, this is not it.  Interestingly, I was able to wipe the eyeliner off with just some plain water on my finger so I am not sure what makes this “waterproof” since it definitely isn’t. Bottom line:  a good eyeliner that stays put and doesn’t smudge easily (but is NOT waterproof)

The makeup remover states that it is “gentle”.  I don’t wear a lot of makeup on my eyes.  I am a mascara and eyeliner kind of girl so it’s not like there was a ton of stuff to take off.  I usually just use baby oil and a tissue to remove my makeup.  When I tried this remover, the fact that it was “oil free” just made it feel more difficult to take the makeup off.  Like it was actually drying to my skin. It did not make the skin around my eyes feel smooth and soft and cared for.  It also made my eyes sting. Bottom line:  I did not like this remover at all and will be sticking with baby oil and a tissue.

** I received these products for free to test and review

Today I was sitting here at the computer working on some things that totally do NOT motivate me.  I mean I was just about to cry out of frustration!  All I could think was, I don’t want to work on this anymore.  Then it occurred to me. I DON”T HAVE TO!  No one is making me work on those projects.  It is only out of some sort of warped sense of personal obligation that I was forcing myself to work on the project to begin with (sort of like when I start a book and it is terrible but I make myself read it anyhow…. but that’s a topic for another post).

Yep, its true! Realizing this helped me figure out that you don’t  HAVE to do a lot of things.  No one can make you.  You have free will.  I find this liberating and considering how obstinate I can be at times, it’s kind of amazing that I just figured this out.

So, look at your To-Do list for the day (if you missed my brilliant post on to-do lists and sharpie markers check it out now at Sharpie Love).  Do you really have to do all of it?  How much of it brings you joy?  How much of it can you cross off and let it go?  Go on, get your Sharpie out and get to it!
