Vincent Longo Olive Oil Fix Tip — No Goofin’ Around With Makeup Goof-Ups
No woman, however handy with an eyeshadow brush and mascara wand, is infallible. We all make mistakes when applying makeup — from tiny slip-ups like coating eyelashes with mascara then looking up too quickly, only to find a black smudge along the browbone, to more severe hiccups involving eyeshadow sprinkling onto cheeks. As with all things in life, the real test lies in how we react to these trials (however trivial). Sure, you can reach for an makeup removing towelette or moisten a swab with a liquid makeup remover and start tackling the problem but most times, these products can either over dry skin or leave it a bit greasy, making reapplication a bit tougher. In cases involving particularly stubborn makeup (like waterproof eyeshadow), correcting a mishap can involve a bit of scrubbing, leaving skin in need of some TLC prior to any necessary touch-ups.
Luckily for all of us, Vincent Longo has devised a solution to our woes: the Vincent Longo Olive Oil Fix Tip ($20 at VincentLongo.com), which comes in a lipgloss-like tube with a twist-off top cap featuring a built-in wand with a sponge-tip applicator. Inside the tube, of course, is the magical elixir — a creamy, fast-drying makeup remover with an olive oil base so that, in addition to removing makeup, the formula smooths, soothes, and moisturizes the skin, leaving it ready for any new makeup that needs to be applied. And, since the applicator tip is so slim, you don’t have to worry about bulky towelettes or cotton pads (or chubby swabs, for that matter), that might remove more makeup than you intended due to their surface area.
The Vincent Longo Olive Oil Fix Tip comes with 12 single-use disposable wands (each with a sponge-tip applicator) so that you can use as needed. And, once you run out of disposable wands, you can always use a Q-Tip (though I’d advise finding one of the newer precision tip swabs) and dip it into the tube, the run it over the area with the faux pas you so eagerly want to rectify.
Another plus: the tube is s small that you can easily carry it in your purse (or add it to your makeup bag) so that, if you need to apply makeup or mascara while on the run, you’re prepared for any slip-ups. You’ll feel like the beauty version of a Girl Scout, with all the right tools to fix possible blunders
