Updated 11/03/2011: Just a quick note to say that the Corrector Pen will be initially exclusive to Boots until April 19th. However, after that, it will be available everywhere. That's my fault for misreading the Press Release :-)
It's not very often that I get excited about new products that are coming up for launch, in fact the only two things that I have actually been excited about getting my mitts on, since I started writing this blog roughly ten months ago, have both been nail products (Rimmel's Matte Top Coat and Barry M's Nail Effects).
Nevertheless, when I spotted Simple's latest addition to their range, I got very excited! And here it is:
Simple's Kind to Eyes Eye Make-Up Corrector Pen.
"The new Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Make-Up Corrector Pen, the first of its kind in the UK...which contains Simple’s award-winning and best-selling eye make-up remover lotion, is the ideal tool to easily remove eye make-up mistakes, even waterproof mascara. The Corrector Pen’s precision tip allows users to wipe away day-to-day mistakes while leaving the rest of their make-up untouched."
"The Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Make-Up Corrector Pen is formulated with the vitamin goodness of Pro-Vitamin B5 to care for the skin around the delicate eye area. What’s more, with no perfume and no colour, common causes of skin irritation, and no harsh or unnecessary chemicals, the Simple Kind To Eyes Eye Make-Up Corrector Pen is perfect for all skin types, even the most sensitive."Why I think this product is going to be awesome:
When it comes to Mascara, and Liquid Eyeliners, I am absolutely prone, to making a mess. I am often known to find mascara marks on my eye lids, as well as below the lower lash line, which is incredibly irritating. Sometimes, I can manage to get to it using my finger, or a Cotton Bud, but I always have two issues with this:
- My finger, and/or cotton bud is often that little bit too fat, especially when you consider that eyelashes are so thin, so they're only going to leave slight marks.
- A cotton bud, or finger alone, is typically not enough, and I always feel like I need something strong to get it to budge. But, quite often, I don't have my Eye Make-Up Remover near by, and I don't know if you have ever tried it, but I don't find it an easy task, trying to get the Eye Make-Up remover onto the tip of the Cotton Bud.
What do you guys think of this product? Do you think it'll work? Do you think it will solve a lot of problems? In fact, do you think that Simple will succeed in their mission to create an absolute make-up bag must have out of this item? And, what do you think about it only being available for a limited time-period, exclusively to one chain? Too restricting? And, okay I shall stop with the questioning :D
