Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover Lip Oil Stick ($15) ensures I’ll never to resort to using my reapplication makeup hack for long-wearing lipstick throughout the day. I actually dislike long-wearing lipstick because it’s a pain to remove and touch up through the day. Once you apply it, it’s pretty much bulletproof and it’s not going anywhere until you remove it with an oil-based makeup remover of some sort. I typically resort to saturating a cotton pad with micellar water, sticking it in a little ziploc bag, and carrying it around with me so, I can remove my lipstick and reapply it fresh throughout the day.
But Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover Lip Oil Stick is a WAY easier way of doing things.
Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover Lip Oil Stick is a simple slimline lip oil that removes long-wearing liquid lipstick quickly and easily without drying out lips. Swivel it up, swipe it over your lips a few times, and wipe off your lipstick with a tissue.
Pretty nifty right?
This has an easy glide across lips with a light cotton flavor and fragrance. It has a very light oily consistency with a slick formula and a shiny finish. The oil-based formula helps to break down waterproof liquid lipstick very easily. It’s pretty much mess-free as well. It doesn’t mess up your lipstick or create a glorious mess around your mouth. If nothing at all it’s almost as if you’re applying lip balm right on top of your lipstick. After it applied you can simply wipe off your lipstick easily. It does leave a bit of residue behind but you can go back in and reapply to remove any excess color that’s left over. The formula is nicely hydrating and leave lips soft, hydrated, and ready for reapplication should you like. After using it I would suggest wiping the tip off gently with a tissue to get off any color left behind from application. For sensitive users, it does have a light coconut flavor and fragrance that’s barely noticeable.
I loved it.
I think it’s a product best suited for touch ups when traveling. You want to keep this in your makeup bag to use throughout the day to either remove your lipstick completely or to reapply it. I think it’s way too small (0.06 oz) to use daily to remove lipstick at the end of the day. You can go through this fairly fast if you’re using it every single day to remove your lipstick. I love how well it works, I just wish it was a touch bigger so, I can use it in my nightly routine to remove my liquid lipstick.
Keep in mind, this was created with long-wearing liquid lipstick in mind. It’ll work well to remove that formula but if you’re trying to use it with a regular old lipstick it’ll just crease a mess so, stick to using it with your hardest to remove lipstick.
All in all, Urban Decay Meltdown Makeup Remover Lip Oil Stick couldn’t release at a better time. Long-wearing lipsticks have become a industry formula standard! I think the trend has pasted and liquid lipstick is just a permanently popular formula for makeup lovers everywhere. And even though, the makeup world is filled with a ton of different formulas and finishes of the lipstick, it’s sadly lacking in ways to easily remove them. This little stick offers a easy, mess-free way to quickly remove your longest, strongest wearing lipstick quickly for touch ups or reapplication. I do wish it was bigger but there’s absolutely no fault with the fab formula here!
