Hey everyone!

Last month, I went to the drugstore to pick up some more makeup remover wipes because I was running low on the ones I had.  But, when I got to the store, I decided to try something different:  I wanted to try using liquid makeup remover instead of buying more makeup remover wipes.  So, when I saw the Maybelline Expert Eyes Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover for Waterproof Eye Makeup, I was really intrigued.  During spring and summer, I prefer to wear waterproof mascara to reduce the amount of smudging and smearing that can occur due to the warmth and humidity.  However, I have always found that waterproof mascara is really difficult to remove from my lashes at the end of the day.  Perhaps the makeup remover wipes that I have used in the past were just not good enough for removing waterproof mascara.  So, I was really excited about trying this Maybelline eye makeup remover since it claims to remove waterproof eye makeup.

When I finally tried out this Maybelline eye makeup remover, I was not impressed.  I found the formula of the remover extremely liquidy and oily.  Even when I had the bottle tilted at the slightest angle, there was makeup remover gushing out of the bottle!  When I applied the makeup remover to my skin, it felt extremely slimy because the consistency is so oily.  What's even worse is that this makeup remover didn't even remove any of my eye makeup!  When I lifted the cotton round from my skin, I saw that all of my eye makeup was swirled together and smeared all over my eyelid and face.  I looked like I had a black eye!  Some of my waterproof mascara and my black liquid eyeliner had mixed with my eyeshadow on my eyelid.  However, the majority of the waterproof mascara was still on my lashes.  After wiping my eye area profusely with clean tissues, I I still had black smudges on my face and my skin still felt slimy and oily. 

After my first use of this Maybelline makeup remover, I told myself that I should give it a few more chances.  I thought that maybe I just needed to learn how to use it properly.  However, after repeated uses with the exact same results, I have given up on this product.  At this point, even though I hate not using up all of the products I buy, I just want to throw it away!
