This is one for the books. The other day I was walking home from a Starbucks run when I felt something cold and wet fly into my eye — correction, onto my eye. I was multitasking (talking on the phone and drinking) when a tiny little bug landed on my blue Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner that I just opened that very morning.
I hung up the phone, put down the coffee and peeled the fly from my eye, killing the fragile insect at the same time — gross.
Lesson Learned: Gel eye liners, cream shadows, and sticky lip glosses are traps for bugs. For anyone going camping this Summer, I suggest leaving these beauty products at home where they belong.
