We all have used long stay make- up at some point of time because honestly who has the time to re-apply the make -up through out the day or to carry extra lipsticks for touch- ups .Also Indian summers call for waterproof make –up many a times .
Though long lasting make-up does reduce the need for constant touch-ups and frequent peeks into the mirror to see if “ All is well “ but when the time comes to take it off , it is … such a pain ! Constant scrubbing and pulling at the eyes and lips to take off the stubborn long -stay make up and that too at the end of the day when you are so tired that you just want to crawl into your bed and snooze .
Imagine the relief I felt when I was told about specialized products that can take off this kind of make-up in a jiffy !!!
