Two Drugstore Eye Makeup Removers- Tested
I have avoided visiting my MAC store (and the new collections) for the last couple of months and haven’t even come close to entering the doors in fear of bringing home alot of beautiful items I dont need in a moment of weakness. So right before I am out of eye makeup remover I picked up a bottle of CVS Brand Eye Makeup remover that I had heard worked well.First time using this I couldn’t get all of my eye makeup off! I really had to work to remove all of my eyeliner -which left my eyes a little irritated when I was through..Later this week when I went to Costco I saw a three pack of Neutrogena Oil Free Eye makeup Remover for $14.99, so I picked that up to replace the CVS bottle that wasnt working for me at home. I really debated getting this since It was again a brand I never tried and I would really hate to have 4 bottles of eye makeup remover that didnt work! Yet still I brought them home. That evening when I removed my makeup I was pleased with how easily my eye makeup wiped off with this remover. It says Oil free but It still did feel a tiny bit oily. But not enough to be bothersome.
I applied L’Oreal Creme Eyeliner (midnight blue) on my hand and let it dry. I took a q-tip and dipped it in each remover. CVS on the left and Neutrogena on the right. I used 3 strokes and above you can see the result. I used the CVS to remove the rest of the liner from my hand. The CVS Remover did take it all off. But it was alot more work. On my hand it took alot of rubbing, I cant imagine how my eye would feel after the same process!
