I figure it’s only a matter of time before it happens…
…a bite from a radioactive spider, a shot of super soldier serum, contact with a meteor fragment from the other side of the galaxy — sooner or later, it’s bound to happen, but since one can never predict the exact moment of their superhero transformation, it’s a good idea to be prepared.
You’ll need an outfit (cape or no cape?), a heroic hairstyle and oh! — can’t forget the makeup.
Superman might be able to just tear off his tweed blazer, toss his glasses aside and slick back his hair, but we ladies like to go the extra mile, like Catwoman, with her black liner and red lipstick (I can only imagine the leaps and bounds her credit card takes at Sephora).
Superhero Karen wouldn’t dream of leaving the house without long-wearing, waterproof eye makeup on her lids and lashes, since saving lives frequently involves 1) perspiration and 2) inclement weather.
(And it’s a fairly safe bet that she and Storm would cross paths every so often.)
One thing’s for sure — she’ll need a really good eye makeup remover, something able to vanquish everything, including waterproof mascara.
Wait! — what’s that?! Up there in the sky! It’s a bird, a plane, it’s Milani Instant Eye Makeup Remover!!
A dual-phase liquid formula free of oil, silicone and artificial fragrances, it bats aside eye makeup like the Hulk bats aside cars. Cost: $5.99.
Just give the bottle a quick shake to mix the liquid components together, drip a few drops on a cotton ball, wipe all of your makeup away (dayum! — see how fast that was?), and rinse with water.
Long-wearing gel liner, waterproof mascara, primer — nothing stands in its way — and it works without clouding up my eyes or leaving my skin feeling greasy.
If LancÃ´me Bi-Facil had a super-powered drugstore twin, it would be called Milani Instant Eye Makeup Remover, and for $5.99, it’s one of the least expensive drugstore makeup removers in the superhero universe.
Saving the world a few bucks at a time. Yes, please!
PRICE: $5.99 for a 4-ounce bottle
AVAILABILITY: Available now at drugstores and online at milani.com
