After attending a seminar by top make up artist Alexandra Byrne and and seeing how she used it, I adopted the same method and now I too call it the Erase and Reverse Lotion. Quite simply its a make up eraser and you can use it to clean the skin during make up application and clean up any fallout or excess product, especially eye shadow or mascara on the skin without smudging it all over the face.
To use, I just pump a little unto the back of my hand and with a cotton bud wipe away any mishaps. It's a light weight formula and it picks up fall out product very easily, without drying the skin, allowing you to continue your make up application without any drama. Also because its oil free and dries to a matte finish, it doesn't leave an oily residue for you to work against. Mega brownie points there!
It's also great for when you need to change looks very quickly e.g change your day time eyeshadow to something more glam for night time. Again, using face wipes may seem quick, but they tend to smear product on the skin, leaving you with a bigger clean up job. Oil Control Lotion will erase anything you don't want on your face in a clean sweep, allowing you to carry on at a quicker pace.
Would love to hear your thoughts. Have you tried Oil Control Lotion? or what do you use to clean up make up mishaps?
