This is what happens when you're cheap, and opt to wipe off your mascara with eye makeup remover-soaked TOILET PAPER, and not a fluffy cotton pad or cotton ball. My right eye is totally swollen and I can barely open it. Here's what I'm thinking. I discovered that, once I started wiping, the wet toilet paper started tearing off in these tiny rolls. I think I got a piece in my eye and slept the whole night with it in there. I know, I know. But I ran out of my favorite cotton pads, and even thought they're cheap, the $$ adds up, so I just thought...

That's what I get for thinking, right?

Try a warm tea bag to take down some of the swelling.

Oh man. Ok I'm also cheap so I'll be sure to make a note not to use tp like that.
I buy these cotton pads from the $ store that I love. I think I get 100 or so for just $1. As lazy as I may be after a long day, I remember that my beauty godmother (you) would kill me if I slept with eye makeup.
Swing by your local dollar store to check out the cotton pads, not the cotton balls. They totally rock.

aww man! next time just close your eyes and use olive oil and rub lashes lightly between fingers.

if you use toilet paper or a napkin, don't rub (as you have learned it pills) but just dab.

or use q-tips

hope the eye heals quick mama

Oh no! Hope you're better now!

That's happen to me once - I woke up and my eye was swollen shut.

yipes! that sounds like something that could (and probably will) happen to me, lol. I don't know why I value my quilted cotton rounds so damn much

Get well soon!

I use TP (with vaseline) when I run out of cotton pads to remove make-up, though I know that is a huge no-no. Aw, soo sorry about that.
