Sometimes the Muse is lazy.
On the lazy days when it’s just too much effort to go through the process and hassle of removing makeup using a ton of different products I like to reach for a quick wipe to just remove it all in one shot.
Biore makes some rather great wipes to remove all your make up in one go and of course MAC does a version that’s absolutely awesome!
But I’m guilty of adoring the kawaii in products and neither MAC nor Biore has the cute factor going on!
Soooooooooo I found a cute face wipe to remove all my makeup (even waterproof mascara!) in one go!
Meet Eyeko Face Off Wipes:
At £5.00 for 20 wipes I’m saying you’ll be sporting both a cute way to get it all off simply and quickly! Likey!
Sorry but sometimes the cute factor wins!
At £5.00 for 20 this isn’t the cheapest option you have available but I do find it’s a rather cute way to sport your face wipe around! Traveling with these is ultra nice as they are each individually wrapped which can’t be said for most removers which come in a larger container.
Each wipe is pre-soaked with a cleaning solution that contains Vitamin E and other good for you ingredients. The wipes are extra large so one should do your entire face plus they work extra well at removing waterproof mascara in a hurry however some rubbing is required which is why these are good for quick removal and not recommended for daily use (who wants to be rubbing their eye area daily to remove makeup right?).
Ewwwwww! After use!
For travel, quick and simple makeup removal, or just lazy days Eyeko Face Off Wipes get a Muse Approval for purchase. Cute, simple, quick, easy, and awesome for travel make these a must have for the Muse!
Learn more about Eyeko products by visiting their website.
The Muse highly recommends stopping by both as each has a different line up of products to enjoy!
Which all in one wipes do you use?

Two of my favorite designers, Viktor & Rolf, have teamed up with Shu Uemura to design three amazing lash designs for the Tokyo Lash Bar this year.
The Couture Collection makes the Muse simply quiver in delight while drool drips from her mouth!
Have you seen these lashes?
Is it terrible to admit that I want to buy at least two pairs just because they are so stunning!?
Each lash set is encased in a gorgeous white box complete with a masquerade eye mask and costs $95 USD.
I can’t think of a more wicked and indulgence purchase than these.
At first I had two sets in my cart but I’ve since decided that I should show some control and just purchase one! Now it’s all about firguring out which pair to buy!
It’s a toss up between the Wing and Swirl versions….I’m thinking the Swirl is very Muse-like!
Ugh having such a hard time not buying both! Ahhhhhh!
And yes, before you say it, these are an utterly extravagant, spoiled, and self-indulged purchase! But the Muse has decided she deserves it and no one can change her mind!
Expect ridiculous amounts of pictures soon and possible…if I’m so inclined…a Face of the Day sporting these…it’ll have to be a special occasion…hmm…New Year’s? My Birthday? Just because?
Stay tuned! Can’t wait? Check out Erika’s haul at Makeup Bag!
For now I leave you with promo pictures:
Gagging for these?
Want a pair for yourself?

I’ve been thinking about it really hard I think Josie Maran must know alot about cosmetics after being Maybelline’s promo model for so long. It’s probably pretty fitting that she now has her own line of cosmetics available from Sephora than dontcha think?
I admit I’m tempted.
Her new line isn’t only quite nice to look at but it’s also organic. The line contains botanical ingredients and sports recyclable and biodegradable packaging. Go Josie Go!
I think I’ll be picking up a few items for review shortly as I’m totally digging the packaging and the looks of everything!
Want to try it?

Today I’ll be reviewing Patricia Wexler M.D. Instant Airbrush Concealer in continuing with my spotlight on Good, Bad, and Great Concealers!
Patricia Wexler M.D. is one of those brands that I end up buying due to all the fancy stuff I read on the packaging. I buy into all that hype that’s written all over the boxes, packaging, and adverts.
Wrinkles gone in an instant, dark circles concealed forever, a newer, fresher face awaits you!
I’ve purchased three products by Patricia Wexler M.D. so far and all have been a major disappointment one of which happens to be the Instant Airbrush Concealer.
The packaging is simply awesome as it’s a click style pen concealer which I absolutely love and lust after when it comes to concealers. I love pens simply because they make concealer application so easy, hygienic, and simple!
The Patricia Wexler M.D. Instant Concealer is a tad bit of a high price at $19.50 USD. It is considered a Beauty on a Budget find however since it doesn’t work too well that’s a bit of a high price to pay for it.
The concealer is lightly pigmented and offers ok coverage plus the pen style applicator as I mentioned is an added bonus however the formula is lacking in this concealer.
The concealer is not only drying to the delicate eye area but it also creases into fine lines plus the texture is extremely watery which makes it a delightful mess to apply. Instead of brushing it on and blending you’ll find it dripping down your cheek before you have the chance to pat it into place, the formula is that watery!
Contrary to reviews I’ve read once you’ve successfully blended your eyes will look quite well rested and your dark circles will be quite concealed however any fine lines under your eyes will be displayed a bit more prominently due to how drying the formula is. I’ve read that the coverage is ultra light and doesn’t conceal well and those reviews would be correct however on days I was awake and had a good solid 8 hours of rest the coverage was enough to make my eyes look good. My main problems lay with the fact that the product was not long wearing, crept into my fine lines, and dried my eye area terribly.
Major rant for the fact that this comes in only three shades so anyone with darker skin than a medium will have trouble finding a good match for their skin tone.
Although the packaging is brilliant and the formula is wonderfully light yet pigmented it has too many flaws to be a truly great concealer! I’ve seen better budget finds that are cheaper and work better! I can recommend it if you’re seeking lighter coverage and aren’t concealing a ton of extra baggage. It’s also pretty good if you’re not sporting dryness under your eyes however I think it might be safer just to spend your $20 on a better concealer!
