When it comes to skincare products, I have commitment issues, and it’s probably one of the many reasons I like the little bottles and jars in MAC Sized to Go.
By shrinking nine products down to 1-oz. in size and setting their prices (almost) accordingly, MAC made the products easier to travel with and try.
Like the $10 Sized to Go Pro Eye Makeup Remover, one of the gentlest, most soothing (it contains cucumber extract) and hydrating eye makeup removers my eyes have ever seen. Unlike many other removers, it neither stings my peepers nor makes me see clouds. And even when I use it to remove makeup along my waterlines, I don’t shed a single tear (a rare thing).
A few drops on a cotton ball take care of everything from light powders to heavy duty stuff like Fluidline and Prolongwear Concealer, all without leaving an oily residue behind. I don’t even have to rinse if off with water, as if it wasn’t awesome enough, and after using it my skin feels clean, hydrated and fresh.
I have a feeling I’ll be reaching for it often, since it’s small enough to hide in a pocket or a small purse.
But like Achilles, every hero has a weakness.
In this case I think it might be waterproof mascara. When I pit it against two layers of Urban Decay Cannonball, it stumbles, but that’s only an issue if you wear waterproof mascara, and if you do, you might consider something like Lancome Bi-Facil ($24) or NYX Eye & Lip Makeup Remover ($8).
I’ve been going through a waterproof Cannonball Combo phase, but I’m sure it won’t last forever. When it does, I can see myself finishing this little bottle and springing for the full size.
If you rarely wear waterproof eye makeup and have dry skin and/or sensitive eyes, keep the $10 MAC Sized to Go Eye Makeup Remover in mind.
PRICE: $10 for a 1-oz. bottle; $18 for the full 3.4-oz. size
AVAILABILITY: Available now at MAC stores, counters and also online

Falling Fluidlines and not-so-fleet feet
Feet are always at risk when you’re addicted to makeup. This morning I accidentally dropped a jar of MAC Fluidline on my right foot, and now I have a nasty bruise, thank you very much, Dark Diversion from Stylishly Yours. Those little glass jars are hella heavy!
Fluidline, meet foot!
Have you ever accidentally dropped any makeup or beauty products on your feet (or any other part of your body, for that matter)? I bet some of the worst offenders are nail polishes and perfumes (OUCH!).
