Neutrogena Review, and a Haul!


Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Iv'e been spending like mad these last few days but before getting to my haul let's do a small review.

The Neutrogena Oil Free eye Make up Remover


Has anyone tried this product? I've seen it in my pharmacy forever but have always ignored it due to the fact that I constantly had a bottle of Lancome's bi facil eye make up remover in my bathroom. The Lancome product is pretty famous, I am sure many beauty bloggers are familiar with this product. I had originally started with the Estee Lauder eye make up remover and had tried the Lancome one for variation.
In my opinion the Lancome one is oily. I know that the oil is there to help breakdown the eye make up product, and remove it with 1 swipe but the Estee Lauder one did not leave any oily feeling behind.
In search for another brand to try, I purchased this Neutrogena one.

Verdict? It's definetly NOT BAD! I would say it is the same as Lancome Bi Facil! Seriously, same effect, same color, same 1 swipe action. Even with alot of cream shadows, glitter, and mascara on my eyes this was removed with 1 swipe. I was pretty surprised on how well it worked.

The item's packing states oil free but when you look at the bottle there is definetly two liquids in the thing esp since you have to shake the bottle before application. When you swipe it over your eye there is an oily residue that remains, wht this liquid is? I have no clue but apparenly it is not oil.

I would definetly reccomend this item because it is about 1/3 the price of the Lancome product with about the same quantity and quality.

I think if I had a choice I would go back to Estee Lauder soley because it leaves absolutley no oily residue on my lids post swipe but this is definetly something I prefer over the famouse Lancome item.

HAUL ITEMS:
I actally got so many items I had forgotten to take pictures of 3 other things ><

Shoes:
Have you noticed all the previous shoe posts on this blog? Well here are some more. Boots this time. I purchased two boots, in all seriousness they are the same...different shops, brands, colors, etc. but same.
Have you noticed the new style is everyone trying to mimic is the chloe boot? The Chloe boot is WILD at first I hated it but it has def grown on me. Well, if you go into a shoe store around now you are going to start noticing a pattern with boots and I have also totally fallen into.

These black ones are from Topshop. I had to order these online because they reminded me of the Chloe boots in a normal color. I saw these first, before the mass chain stores started to come out with them...
It is weird... the TopShop in NYC only sells half sizes but the online shop sells whole sizes in certain items... WTH??? anyway... I was a whole size and had to purchase these via the web.
At first I thought they were ugly...but they have definetly grown on me! My bf HATES them but whatever, I wear what I want!



The next pair is from Zara. I had seen these on Lookbook.nu and had to try them out. I first saw them on 5th ave, not my size..I panic-ed! I have REALLY bad luck shopping for things I want esp since all Zara's only had about 4 of these in each store. I quickly dashed on a train to the 42nd st location... NO SIZE! went to the heald sq location NO SIZE! ><
Tried them on, good fit but I knew they were like my black top shop ones...got them anyway ha! Now I don't know if I should return them... what do you think of them ladies?





Side by Side:




Glasses:
I've wanted Tortoise Raybans for months, finally got them today. I must have tried on 100 of them to find the pair that fits my huge face!


Nails:
Last but not least, not really a haul item but just a lil pick up. I had heard reviews from bloggers that the NYC nail polishes are not bad. I picked this up tonight at CVS, NYC nail color in "Manhattan" I love how they name so many colors after city areas. Guess I am working on my nails this Friday night lol.


Hope everyone has a great weekend! Next post I will show my remaining items and another review hopefully!
