The Best Makeup Removing Wipes

Makeup wipes are an essential part of my evening routine.  I find that they're the best way to get rid of most of my makeup.  I usually follow up with a face wash and a toner to ensure that all traces of makeup have been removed.  In the past few years I've tested many brands of makeup wipes and I always go back to the same ones, Kirkland Signature Daily Facial Wipes.

Best: Kirkland Signature Daily Facial Wipes
I have been using these for years and they are hands down my favorite wipes.  The towelettes are very moist and work wonders at removing most of my makeup.  I think the Neutrogena facial wipes do the best job of wiping off heavy mascara but I think the formula is too oily for the rest of my skin. Also you can't beat the price of the Kirkland wipes, at about 14 cents a wipe they are quite a steal.  Many of the other brands cost about 25 cents per wipe.

Worst: Just the Basics Pre-Moistened Facial Towelettes CVS
I grabbed these when I ran out of my Kirkland face wipes and couldn't run to Costco to buy more. They were very affordable at $2.99 for a pack of 30.  But I found them to be very dry and because of this I really struggled getting makeup off of my face.  I was pulling at my face to get them to remove my makeup, a definite no no for those of us trying to avoid premature aging!  

Tip: Store your makeup wipes upside down so that the moisture soaks into the wipes!

Pantone 2015 Color of the Year

Move over emerald.  Pantone has just announced that the 2015 color of the year will be marsala.  If you aren't familiar with the color marasala, it's a brownish wine-red color.  I can't see this color being very popular in the spring or summer but come Fall 2015, I'm sure you'll be seeing it everywhere.  The great thing about the color is that it unisex, unlike Pantone's 2013 color which was radian orchid. I'm looking forward to seeing marasala in cosmetics.  A marsala colored blush would look gorgeous, or even a marsala colored lip or nail.  What do you think of this color?  How would you wear it?
