Maybelline New York New Clean Express Total Clean Eye & Lip Makeup Remover

Maybelline New York New Clean Express Total Clean Eye & Lip Makeup Remover

Hello friends,

I prefer ready-made eye-makeup removers over oils as they are hassle free and less messy. After my Lakme Bi-Phase one got over, I picked this new fellow from Maybelline.

It is designed to be used for removing makeup from our eyes and lips. The formula is similar to the lakme bi-phase one with two liquids of different densities. The oily one settles in the bottom and we need to shake the bottle before you.

It comes in a transparent plastic packing with a nozzle. It is convenient for travel and does not spill.

The texture of the remover is runny and it is a blue tinted transparent liquid. I have sensitive eyes and I felt mild irritation when I used this for the first time. Now I use it to clean the eyeshadow and loosen up the mascara. I am very careful in not letting the remover get inside my eye.  

It is supposed to be non-greasy. It leaves an oily residue immediately after usage but in seconds, it vanishes in no time leaving my skin (extremely) dry.

It has no bothering fragrance.

Coming to the makeup removing part, more than two swipes are required to clean the water-proof and long stay eyeliners. In the images below, you can see how it has little or no effect over a long last liner from amway’s attitude range.

Though it is safe to be used on eyes, as I have mentioned earlier, I feel slight irritation which discourages me to use this remover more than to loosen up the makeup. But what I really like about this is, it removes even the faintest of stains my lipstick leaves. It comes in handy when I use lipsticks like colorbar which stains like there is no tomorrow. 

Another thing which I love about this is, it does not have any annoying smell.

Indian Beauty Maniac’s Rating
3/5

Though the pros are many, for me, it fails to serve the basic purpose i.e., removing smudge-free makeup with little effort. It is a good remover for those who use light kohl.  It also stings my eyes. They could have made the formula more suited for eyes like mine. 

I will not repurchase.

Hope you girls found my review useful.

PS: I am following a new fitness regime. Will keep you all posted on what it is and how it fares for me soon!
