PR: Dolly Wink Liquid & Argan Bear Naked Wipes

It's been a while since I've done a Product Review-- but I've been introduced to 2 products that I really like, so I wanted to share it with you all :)

... Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner!

Description from Company: Koji Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner has a ultra fine yet flexible point tip, which allow greater precision with a easy to handle eyelining experience. The deep dazzling black can accentuate the glamorous eyes of yours, giving you a more defined look. This eyeliner is waterproof, sweat proof and with the quick dry formula, the eyeliner can stay on for hours without a smudge. Your look will be long wearing and gorgeous even without touch-up.
My thoughts: My main issue with liquid liners up to this point was how it always goes on deep and dark, yet flakes super easy. I love this formula, it goes on, and stays on. To a degree, it acts like a gel liner in that I can fix it, and wing it out slightly at the outter edge of my eye using a Q-tip-- none of the other liquid liners I've used have this ability to "smudge". The tip is excellent-- my favorite, BY FAR, in ANY liquid liner. It also doesn't go on "shiny" like many liquid liners. I also wanted to comment a bit about the packaging: YES, it's cute, but it's completely not necessary. It could be just the pencil in a smaller box, and be just as adorable without all the access material (waste). I'm not sure if the plastic is recyle-able.
Overall Rating: 9/10, a definite re-purchase, but in general, my preference is still either gel liner or pencil-- it's just a slightly softer look, you know?
Other Info: You can buy this at SaSa.com for about $12-- a worthy investment! I just don't know how long it'll last if you use it everyday, but I'm still guessing it's worth it =)
I received this as a gift from Rina.

And... Josie Maran Baare Naked Makeup Removal Wipes

Description from Company: Erase your face, not the polar bear race!
Wipe off makeup and dirt nature's way, with a blend of natural and healthy ingredients including aloe vera, cucumber, and vitamin E. Free of fragrance, parabens, and petrochemicals, these luxuriously soft wipes are kind to tender eyes and skin and are biodegradable. Leave your skin feeling nourished and refreshed! 30 wipe count. In support of the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Polar Bear SOS initiative, a portion of every package sold will go to protect these endangered animals. For ingredient listings, please click here. To learn more or get involved, please visitwww.polarbearsos.org
My thoughts: I've used the makeup wipes from Diaos, they're about $3 for a pack of... I forgot, (don't have it with me).. around 40 sheets. Daiso makeup wipes work AMAZING but they're thin. These Bare Naked wipes are thick, extremely soft, and removes makeup very well. Leaves your skin feeling clean, refreshed, and supple. There's nothing I don't like about the actual product. The wipes are pretty big, so I would actually reduce the size of them if I had the choice. Less waste!
Overall Rating: 9/10 
Other Info: This costs $12/pack of 30. The ONLY reason why I took off 1 point on the rating was for the price-- it is NOT the most budget friendly makeup remover, as much as I love it. I can see myself using this more if I had a stable job. You can purchase this at Sephora or off the Josie Maran website.
I received this wipes as a gift from Crystal.

Have you personally used any of these two products? If so, what are YOUR thoughts on them?


I'm off, hope you enjoyed the short post and PRs. I'm off to spend some time with family!
Enjoy your Christmas, and I'll be announcing the giveaway winner tomorrow!

love,
