I've never used it in my eyes but it does wonders for getting the redness out of my spots! I've never used a 'blemish cream' or anything else that's worked as well as this!
I put it on a piece of cotton wool instead of a q-tip and leave it on the spot for a few minutes. It means I can finish my eye and lip MU while it's battling redness!
Great stuff would definitely repurchase!
Just a side note to all the reviews... if you use it to reduce redness on pimples, try putting it on a q-tip and then freezing it.... the combination of visine plus the coolness on your skin reduces the redness and the inflammation of the pimple, so it can help shrink it down so it's even less noticable. i always keep five to ten ready in the freezer for when i need them!
and be careful using it in your eyes... it is great for removing redness, but it actually can make it worse in the end if you use it too often... your eyes will become "immune" to it and it'll take a lot more to get the effect and it won't last long at all. just a heads up!
Great for dry or red eyes!
Great for turning eye powders into liquid liners!
Great for taking the redness out of pimples!
I don't think I've ever seen a product so good at such a range of purposes.
I will forever have bottles of this on me until the day I die.
A basic product that definitely does the job... Clears your eyes leaving them slighlty whiter , but sometimes this actually makes my eyes water so much , after I applied 2 drops in each eye , that Im not sure that's a good thing.
Especially as I'd like to apply my eye-makeup afterwards. Sometime ago I used it to wet my eyebrushes in a tiny bit of this , to apply my eyeshadows wet for more pigment.
I found better eye-drops , for what these are supposed to do , so Im not sure I'd return to Visine for the actual purpose.
Great as eye drops for dry eyes, but wonderful to take the redness away from a pimple. If I can't resist trying to pop a pimple, I end up with a bright red mark. Go figure! A tiny drop of this on the zit, and it helps to calm the redness that my concealer can't completely cover.
This is a great, cheap alternative to Duwop Payoff Eyeshadow Intensifier. It works better than Duwop Payoff. You use it in the same way. I highly recommend it!
Visine + any ordinary eyeshadow = awesome eyeliner in any color!
I thought this was one of the strangest products reviewed here, but being Curious George, I HAD to try it. I busted out my Visine drops, wet my e/s brush with it, dipped into a MAC pigment and applied over my eyelids. Voila! Super duper intense color from the pigment and after day of wear, no crease or fade. The only thing is, the Visine does make the color slightly clumpy, like the past reviewer said... but as far as staying power goes... it WORKS!
I DID A COMPARISON last night comparing Visine & a homemade mixing medium (Mixing Medium is what you need if you turn any powder to liquid or gel form. Like if you want to use powder eyeshadow or pigment as an eyeliner, you use a little mixing medium, and it will turn the e/s to gel or liquid consistency.)...
The Visine completely CLUMPED up my GLITTER EYE shadow & it was VERY blotchy!! (It did however not burn my eyes...Be CAREFUL NOT TO USE too much of the mixing medium!! I accidentally had waaaaaay too much on my brush & it got in my eye & burned!!) I have not tried the visine w/ a regular loose eye shadow (w/out glitter)...
I did the other eye w/ a HOMEMADE MIXING MEDIUM (MAKE SURE NOT TO USE TOO MUCH b/c it burns when it gets in your eyes!!! All you need is a LITTLE BIT, just to dampen your brush...)-- All it is is 1 part Glycerin (you can find it at any local drug store.. a huge bottle is less than $5...) to 2 parts water... The eye w/ this looked so much better & the glitter stayed on ALL NIGHT!!! The line was PERFECTLY straight & EVEN, just as I had applied it & hoped it would look!!!
I am ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE w/ this guy Enkore's videos on youtube & here's a really easy & cheap tutorial on how to make the homemade mixing medium:
******* I compared the homemade one to MAC's & the homemade works just as great & you get a HUGE bottle for less than $5 (as opossed to a small MAC bottle for $500000000, ok really not that much! lol! But MAC's is A LOT more expensive!!)!!!!
Visine! It's a multipurpose product, who knew? Apparently, as the first reviewer mentioned, it can be used to bolden eyeshadows and keep your eyemakeup where it is all day! I personally haven't tried this, but it sounds good to me.
However, I use this product for (obviously) red, itchy, watery eyes due to allergies or due to being baked. But probably my favorite use for this product is taking the redness out of zits. If you just put some Visine on a Q-tip, apply it to your pimples, the red goes away in a matter of seconds.
After all that being said, how am I only the third person reviewing this great product on MUA?!
