Beauty Product Review: New! L'Oreal Clean Artiste Makeup Corrector Pen
We're all hands some days, and our face canvas looks more like a Picasso's Dora Maar Seated than Leonardo da Vinci's very careful and precise works.
To our faces' delight, L'Oreal's Clean Artiste Makeup Corrector Pen is the newest tool in our makeup box.
WHAT WE LIKE:
- Clean Artiste is a non-greasy formula that removes eye and lip makeup -- even waterproof and long-wearing formulas.
- Clean Artiste has a slant tip and a fine point for more accuracy and larger errors.
- Clean Artiste doesn't erase too much of your makeup like a cotton ball or tissue would.
- Clean Artiste doesn't tug or pull on delicate skin.
- Clean Artiste is ophthalmologist- and dermatologist-tested, making it suitable for sensitive skin and contact lens wearers.
- Clean Artiste is budget-friendly at $10.95.
- Clean Artiste is handbag-friendly for those on-the-go touch-ups, especially smudges that are created by after-five mascara.
Clean Artiste Makeup Corrector Pen is available at www.lorealparis.com and select retailers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $10.95.
Also new in L'Oreal's spring lineup:
- True Match Super-Blendable Compact Makeup
- Le Kohl Duo Shadow and Liner
- HIP Color Presso
- HIP Kohl Eyeliner
