Four score and seven years ago the Muse was a younger girl and tried out Almay Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads. This devil product nearly put me off Eye Makeup Remover for all time. It was greasy, oily, and it blinded me with science…not really science but it was cool to throw that in a sentence.
No seriously, they were so OILY that they ended up giving me trippy eye vision for hours after. I must have been 18ish or so when I first tried them. I had a brief stint working at CVS when I was around 16 or so so it could have been even as far back as that when I originally tried them.
Almay recently launched four new pad eye makeup removers and two new liquid eye makeup removers. I saw the display, quickly shook my head, and walked away from it. Those pads are evil I told myself, you’re still recovering from the last time you used them, remember what an emotional wreck you were after using them that first time? Needless to say curiosity killed the cat but this cat was curious none the less….so I decided to repurchase the Almay Longwear & Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Pads. I mean there was Kate Hudson right on display, smiling at me reassuringly. This must mean they somehow reformulated these pads! No oil, no trippy cloudy vision that makes me want to play I am the Walrus as I stumble from my bathroom to my bedroom….goo goo g’joob indeed.
How are they?
I decided to pick up a back up of Lumene Waterproof Eye Make Up Remover since CVS has a buy $30 worth of Lumene and get $10 Bonus Bucks.
I can’t believe I never reviewed this before. I had to check back and make sure I didn’t but it appears I never posted about it before. How terrible of me!
Take a look!
I’ve already reviewed the new Maybelline Clean Express Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover and today we’ll take a look at the new Maybelline Clean Express Classic Eye Makeup Remover. These are the two newest eye makeup removers that Maybelline has introduced for Spring 2013. Each bottle is 4 oz in size with an affordable $5.99 price tag.
Let’s take a look!
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.
Milani Instant Eye Makeup Remover is my HG (holy grail) eye makeup remover of the moment. Actually the search for my HG eye makeup remover might be over!
I’m cheap. Not really but when it comes to makeup remover I am terribly cheap. I think nothing at all of splurging $50 on a blush but tell me to spend $27 on 4.2 oz of makeup remover and I start to sob like a baby, “Mommy it hurts so BAD!”
I think I have this mentality that I can buy a new eyeshadow palette or a lipstick and maybe a gloss with that near $30 price tag. Ouch!!!!!!!!!!
I typically buy Sephora’s Eye Makeup Remover which I like for $9.50 but look out Sephora, Milani Instant Eye Makeup Remover is on the case.
