Welcome to Part 2 of my #SummaSoaka Series! This time, I’ll be looking at waterproof makeup options for face and lips – you know foundation, blush etc. My last post focused on waterproof makeup for eyes. If you missed it, here’s the post 🙂

Again looking at brands that specifically offer waterproof or water-resistant makeup. Also, there are a lot of longwear products available now, especially for lips, but this does not necessarily mean that they are also waterproof.

Travelling this holiday time? Keep these wipes from CLEANSE in your makeup case!

I love using makeup wipes. I find them a lot more convenient to use than liquid makeup removers and cotton rounds. I have tried a lot of wipes out there, but many of them are okay, they don’t take off professional-level waterproof makeup. Or they may sting my eyes. And many removers are too oily for my liking.

A few months ago, I received a box of CLEANSE by Lauren Napier Luxury Facial Cleansing Wipes.

By the way, I had the opportunity to meet Lauren, and she was super nice!

Lauren Napier and me!

The wipes come in a box of 12 that are individually wrapped.

1 wrap

This is fantastic! Makes them ideal for travel! I love that! You can literally throw a couple of them in your makeup bag or carry-on and you would not have to worry about them spilling in your bag or drying out!

Each wipe is larger than the size of your hand and it is soaked (but not drenched) in mix of cleansers, hydrators and skin-soothing ingredients, like aloe and cucumber. The surface of the wipe has a slight texture but it still feels soft against my skin. I decided to test this product out on a day that I had a full-on face on! HD foundation, gel liner, cosmetic glitter, mascara, matte lipstick, everything! I was able to get rid of everything off my face, and it felt refreshed and there was no slick residue. All with one wipe.

A box of 12 costs US$18, which might be cost-prohibitive for some to use on a daily basis, but you could get this for special occasions. They are ideal for your summer getaway and perfect for dancers, performers and artists in your kit.

They are available online at and in NYC at the New London Pharmacy.

What CAN’T you do with 40 eyeliners?? Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils relaunched!

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

I don’t think there is a brand out there with 40 waterproof eye liners to choose from.  There is pretty much a colour to match whatever you are feeling.  And they come in a variety of textures, including mattes!  I am especially excited to try out some mattes in some more ‘less available’ colours.  The best thing is that these creamy liners are waterproof, great for that warm-weather getaway!

Check out the details below….

What’s new: Thirteen (13) brand new shades as well as the addition of fifteen (15) previously exclusive colours.

Price: US$19 each
