Hello everyone.. hope you are enjoying reading Indian Gorgeous Blog. Also if you have not yet followed me on Instagram, please check the link on the right side of the page and do follow me for my latest purchases and swatches.
So we all are crazy about makeup, it’s kind of a routine now and a very important part of our day to day life. However one must take a proper care of their skin as well. Removing make up at the end of the day is one of the most important steps towards skin care. For this, a normal soap cleanser wont suffice so a proper makeup remover should be used followed with a regular facewash.
Today I am going to review one the makeup removers which I am currently using, Maybelline Express Eye and Lip Makeup Remover. This can be bought online on flipkart, snapdeal and couple of websites.
Price: Rs 275/- for 70mL
About Maybelline Express Makeup Remover: It claims to be twice more effective than a regular makeup remover, thereby making makeup removal from eyes and lips specially very easy. It easily dissolves the stubborn eye and lip makeup and gives a squeaky clean skin.
Review about Maybelline Express Makeup Remover:
The product comes in transparent pinkish purple bottle which is made up of plastic. It has screw cap. The bottle being transparent allows you to know how much quantity is left. Normally when it’s kept still being a bi-phasic makeup remover you will observe that there is a separation between two liquids. Hence before using this remover you need to shake the bottle well so that the solvents are dissolved properly.
The texture is extremely runny and you need around 1-2 cotton pads dabbed in the remover to remove the complete face makeup. After the removal of the makeup it does leave an oily residue on the skin, hence using a proper soap cleansing face wash is recommended after usage of this product. I found that it successfully removes the eyeliner, stubborn mascara and long hour lipsticks as well. Check below, I have used couple of lipsticks, lip liners and glosses.

Since I do not use much of eye makeup apart from regular kohl and mascara, it did help me in removing the same as well. The quantity required is less, so this lasts upto 2 months easily for me. If your make up is super heavy you might need multiple cotton pads and this will last you around 1 month.
I found this worth the price as the job gets done, without stinging the eyes. Also it leaves a cleansed skin which is why I find it worth.
- Affordable and easily available.
- Cleans up the stubborn makeup easily.
- Very less quantity is required.
- Does not make the skin feel stretchy.
- Leaves an oily residue behind, so a separate soap cleanser is required.
- Oily skin beauties might not like this due to lot of oily residue left behind.
