Vaseline is a great, cheap eye makeup remover. It's also great for fixing chapped, scaly lips. Slather on a bunch of Vaseline, then use a toothbrush to massage lips. Wipe the excess off on a tissue. Your lips will be smooth and soft !
Face it: cat eyes and smoky eyes are sexy. But liquid liner is messy and takes awhile to get the hang of. Gel liner is relatively simple and VERY precise in its application. And Maybelline's Lasting Drama is very reasonably priced!
