Maybelline Eye & Lip Makeup Remover Review

This makeup remover is a new launch from Maybelline. The market has been flooded with makeup removers off-late..what with Lakme, Maybelline and Colorbar launching their makeup removers all in the last couple of months!!

What it claims : This formula instantly remoes all eye and lip makeup, even waterproof and non-transfer. Formulated for sensitive eyes, it is especially very gentle for the delicate skin around eyes.

The makeup remover comes in a very cute small plastic bottle. This is a bi-phase makeup remover with the upper oil layer blue in color and lower liquid layer is transparent white in color.

Active Ingredients : Aqua/Water, Cyclopentasiloxane, Isohexadecane, Isopropyl Palmitate, Panthenol, Dipotassium Phosphate, Poloxamer Biguanide, Potassium Phosphate, sodium Chloride, CI 61565 / Green 6

The bottle needs to be shaken well before use. On shaking, both the liquids mix up with each other.

Price : Rs. 125 for 40 ml

What I like about the Maybelline Eye & Lip Makeup Remover :
  • It is truly an excellent makeup remover. Works wonderfully well even on waterproof products.
  • You dont have to rub too hard to remove even the most harsh eye makeup. Just dab the cotton and swipe it over and its gone. Depending on what kind of makeup you are wearing, you may have to swipe more times to clean it off completely.
  • It does not sting the eyes at all!! Yes!! Isnt this our biggest worry and fear while taking off eye makeup, specially liners applied on lower lashline. This takes off all such kind of makeup without hurting you one bit. No stinging eyes at all!!
  • I find the bottle quite cute and travel friendly. It fits even in your small handbag. 
  • The oil in the remover leaves your skin soft and smooth after use.
  • The price is very very reasonable.
  • It completely cleans off all makeup. Does not leave behind any racoon eyes like some makeup removers do after u've cleaned black eyeliner.

Here is how it works on the different eye and lip products

Left to Right : Black Liquid Liner, Waterproof Mascara, 4 different types of eye pencils, Lip liner, 2 different types of Lipsticks, Lip Artist, Lip gloss

Heres how the remover worked on the lip products

All the lipliner, lipsticks, lipgloss etc was gone in 2 swipes :)

Now the eye products.

 It took off all the pencil liners including the smudge proof ones in 2 swipes. The liquid liner and waterproof mascara required an additional swipe.

What I dont like about the Maybelline Eye & Lip Makeup Remover :
  • I would have liked if they have bigger variations also, since this would get over pretty soon if used on a daily/regular basis so for my home use I would have liked a bigger bottle.
  • You need a separate cleanser for face. Though while travelling I've used this makeup remover for face products too and it worked fine.

I totally love this and it has made removing all those eyeliners soo very easy for me !!

Have you tried this new makeup remover from Maybelline ? If you havnt tried it yet, get one bottle wont hurt your pocket much too :)

  2. yeah Tanveer...I am using this only to remove my eye makeup since the time I bght it and believe me the wedding season is giving me lots of occassions to test it too :)

  3. excellent. i think this comes in a small size because they want to keep the price per bottle low. that way many people will not think much before buying it. but still, i would have loved it if this came in a larger bottle too!
