Review of Kiss Me Heroine Make - Mascara Remover by katnchimo
I have both the Kiss Me Heroine Make Long & Curl, and the Make Long & Volume. I have rather short lashes that stubbornly grow straight out with no (I mean zero) curl, and found (like so many other short-and-straight-llashed MUA-ers) that the Kiss Me mascaras are nothing short of a miracle product, allowing any curl produced from a eyelash-curler (love the Shu Uemura curler) to actually stay all-freaking-day! Yup, it's HG stuff alright! The drawback? It is next to impossible to get off! I used every kind of remover, including soaking my mascara-clad lashes in olive oil. The best I could do was use the olive oil, and then continue to try and get the mascara off for the next 10 minutes, give-up and go to bed, wake up the next morning with racoon-eyes, and repeat procedure just in time to put mascara on again. This resulted in me only using my HG product for special occasions.
Then I got a hold of the Kiss Me Mascara Remover. It. Is. Worth. It. The remover comes with a funny cylindrical wand with ridges indented in it (not unlike a honey wand). You just apply it over your mascara (like you would apply actual mascara), wait a few minutes (go brush your teeth or something), then take some kleenex or cotton pad and wipe the stuff off. BOOM! No more scrubbing, pulling out precious lashes, or racoon-eyes! I finally am not afraid of my favourite mascara anymore!
The only downer is that this is not always easy to get your hands on. If you live in North America (or at least Canada), you basically have to get it through ebay. Last year I couldn't find it for awhile, but as of May 2012, it's readily available there for around $10 and up.
