I’m pretty much a creature of habit and I never, ever go to bed with makeup on. My evening routine is like a three ring circus for removing my makeup and getting my skin ready for bed. I imagine they could make a reality tv show out of this regime, it’s serious shiz.
Moral of the story is I rarely, like never, go off this routine because I picture hell freezing over, skies falling, and the Red Sea parting if I did go off it.
I do have to brace myself for late nights now though as even though I promised myself I would not get involved with the latest Call of Duty release my good friend Angel who owns a gaming shop in Flushing sent me over a copy yesterday and things went down the hill fast. I could already feel hours of my life being chipped away…Angel should be shot down.
(P.S. Avoid the box edition and get the PS3 or XBOX version, way smoother play)
Last night we played for hours straight with brief Twitter updates and no food, drink, or pee breaks inbetween…by chance, did you hear on the news if the skies fell last night?
Needless to say this amount of gaming means you just wanna fall into bed after it without indulging in your normal makeup removal and nightly skin regime.
Bad, bad, bad…but at least I had a packet of Maybelline Expert Eyes Eye Makeup Remover Towelettes laying around!
Hey, these are nice!
Maybelline Expert Eyes Eye Makeup Remover Towelettes are tiny little wipes to remove your eye makeup in a flash. I like MAC Wipes in general but these little guys will set you back $2.99-$3.99 at drugstores for a pack of 50.
They aren’t huge, they aren’t for your entire face, and they aren’t going to do the trick so well on waterproof mascara they do however remove much of your eye makeup in a flash so you can bed down after a night full of gluttonous gaming.
The smaller size of the wipe is nice as you have a little bit more control over the wipe. Huge azz wipes are nice as well but since these are for your eyes it makes sense they are smaller. I had on a rather intricate eyeshadow look yesterday with liner and mascara and I’d say it did the trick on about 90% of it…waterproof mascara is a little tricky as it’ll leave enough on lashes so you’ll wait up with raccoon eyes but for quickie removal on the fly these are ace.
So if C0D is taking over your life at the moment I suggest grabbing a pack or two to get your eye makeup off in a hurry so you can get to sleep for the long day of work ahead and the shoot up after!
