As you know Maybelline is introducing a new Clean Express! Makeup Remover Collection for Spring 2013. Maybelline Clean Express! Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover is one of those new products.
I typically use Sephora’s Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover and I like it, a lot, but I’m always looking for the next best thing.
Perhaps Maybelline’s new Clean Express! Collection will turn into my new staple.
Maybelline Clean Express! Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover is $5.99 for a 4 oz bottle. Already the price is working in my favor considering I’m all frugal-like when it comes to dishing out for eye makeup remover. Who knows where that stems from but as much as I love Lancome Bi-Facil, the idea of spending $27 on it for 4.2 oz makes me sob for my mummy!
I’ll be honest and say that even Sephora’s new $10 price tag for their 4.2 oz bottle makes me wince.
But $6 bucks, I can handle that.
Maybelline Clean Express! Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover is a pink bi-phase remover. You can apply on a cotton pad, press to your eye, and gently swipe away makeup. It has a slightly oil feel but nothing too greasy, it merely leaves the skin around your eyes nicely hydrated. I’ve used it all week without a hiccup. The formula is gentle, didn’t irritate my eyes, or leave me with cloudy vision.
The formula seems to work great with a variety of eyeshadow, mascara, and eyeliner formulas. It swiped away waterproof mascara easily and heavier eyeshadow and liner. I had one minor issue when I used three different mascaras in one day, don’t ask, I was trying to get some really dramatic lashes going on. In this case, I had minor left over mascara which was removed easily after I washed with an cleansing oil. Aside from that it performed well removing eyeshadow, waterproof mascara, and eyeliner without a hiccup. It removes it all easily in one to two swipes.
If you enjoy bi-phase removers you’ll find that this one is an excellent budget pick for removing makeup. I liked it a lot and can see myself repurchasing it in the future.
