My Review on Maybelline Total Clean Express Eye and Lip Makeup Remover:
The makeup remover comes in a sleek transparent bottle with a screw up glossy white cap, which has a lock in it that ensures there is no spillage. The packaging is good for travelling as well and spill proof. The opening of the bottle is of perfect size. Not too big or small and has a stopper attached preventing product wastage.
The makeup remover inside looks almost like water at first and is completely clear but once it settles down the distinctive layers of oil and water can be seen and has to be shaken before use like other bi phase makeup removers . It has a mild fragrance which is hardly noticeable.
It feels almost like water and is very lightweight, but does have a slightly oily residue to it as a result it feels slightly oily during and after application. I just pour little on a cotton pad and hold it against my eyes for barely 5 seconds and wipe it off, almost everything comes off in a single swipe itself, but I do notice a residue left behind… mostly of the eyeliners and to be specific the colored ones and it gets slightly messy as seen in the swatches below.
To overcome that I go over it once again with a clean cotton pad to remove the last traces. It is a very mild yet effective remover and littlegoes a long way. It removes my liner, mascara, eye shadows and everything very easily and does not sting or irritate my sensitive eyes at all. It effectively removes long staying lip colors including stains with equal ease. A cleansing face wash after its use takes care of the residue.
All in all, it is a really good and effective makeup remover considering the pric, but it is not a one-step remover and using a facial cleanser is must to take care of the slight oily residue it leaves behind. It did not irritate my skin at all and will be suitable for almost all skin types.
In the swatches I have tried removing Maybelline gel liner, long staying shimmery colored eyeliner, lipstick and a lip liner.
Compared to the previous Maybelline makeup remover, I feel it is almost the same, the difference being the color of the remover and this one feels slightly less greasy afterwards, but that problem is still there and also this total clean one is slightly more effective and removes most of the stubborn makeup in a single swipe itself!
Pros of Maybelline Total Clean Express Eye and Lip Makeup Remover:
- Gentle yet very effective makeup remover
- It removes even stubborn eye and lip makeup instantly
- Did not sting my sensitive eyes at all
- Sleek and travel friendly packaging
- Suitable for most skin types
- Price is very reasonable
Cons of Maybelline Total Clean Express Eye and Lip Makeup Remover:
- Leaves behind oily residue
- Does not remove all the traces of makeup in a single swipe, especially for the colored liners
Maybelline Total Clean Express Eye and Lip Makeup Remover is definitely a slightly more effective compared to the old Maybelline makeup remover and if you like bi phase removers then you are going to love this new total clean eye and lip makeup remover better. I just wish there was no oily residue, but that can be easily taken care of by using a normal facial cleanser.
