I'm a big fan of the clump mascara. It's a carryover from my high school days in the 80's. (Yes... Tammy Faye.) I am not, however, a fan of taking it off. I NEVER wear waterproof mascara just for that reason. (I'd rather have it run down my face a funeral than to rip out my eyelashes later trying to get it off.) I've come across a new product that I really love. It's Clinique's Naturally Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. (Hmm... maybe I'll start a Favorite Things blog like Oprah!) This stuff is really terrific. It's creamy, feels great and gets rid of all the crud. It doesn't sting when it gets into your eye and washes away very easily.
