Askmewhats Reviews: Maybelline Make Up Remover Eye & Lip

** available in all beauty stores for Php329.00 (approx. USD8.00)

One of the most important make-up tool for me, is the eye make-up remover. Aside from my HG Shu Uemura Deep Cleansing Oil, I make it a point to really clean up my eyes with a good eye-make up remover. As I would say, I cannot really clean my eyes with just the cleansing oil as it does hurt my eyes.

Your askmewhats was in search for a very good yet affordable eye make-up remover and when I was in China, with all those Chinese products, I chose to go for the Maybelline brand. And it was my HG eye make-up remover for more than 5years now :)

Maybelline says ---

This 100% oil-free formula gently and effectively removes washable mascara and eye makeup without oily residue.
  • Fragrance-free
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Dermatologist tested

Askmewhats says ---

  • it doesn't sting the eyes
  • used also as lipstick remover, I find this great for those glittery lipglosses that's too stubborn to remove
  • it can last for months
  • affordable (especially on sale)
  • there are some really good waterproof mascara that can't be removed with just one swipe, have to do it again and again
  • the oil and the liquid part really doesn't mix well no matter how many times you shake it....the old formula blended way much better but to be honest...I don't care as it works quite the same
Askmewhats' tip
  • Use the cotton pad instead of a cotton ball, the cotton bad has a flat surface and I find it easier to remove mascara.
  • Don't just rub your eyes with this make-up remover, gently press and hold for several seconds against your closed eyelid. Gently wipe off.
  • And don't forget to always rinse the eye area with water (some people tends to forget this)
  • MONEY SAVING TIP --- wait for sales! Maybelline will always have their 10%, 15% upto 20% sale!!! (I bought my make-up remover for Php263.20 instead of it's original price, good deal!)
  • You can stock up on it especially during sale but don't buy too many, I stock up on twos per sale day. And keep it in cool dry place (sounds like a food packaging tip hehehe)
Will I repurchase?
Yes, I've been repurchasing 2x a year!

I know you guys have your own HG make-up remover...do tell us!

Your askmewhats ,


  1. Thanks for the review! I have to try this out! ^_^

  2. aGreat review, i think ive have tried this before now i will try to search whether its sold here heheh :)

  3. i'm using l'oreal eye makeup remover since forever, maybe it's time to give a different brand a try. :)

  4. you might not believe it but my makeup remover is Pond's Cold Cream. lol. with eye makeup though (especially waterproof mascara) i love Shu cleansing oil! why does it hurt your eyes? i find it oh so mild! btw, i have the pink one.

  5. sis, we made the same rev but on diff products! lol! will try this one soon. :) the shu could wait.. :) lol!

  6. I'm cheap, I use baby oil to remove my makeup :P

  7. I agree that this doesnt remove waterproof mascaras easily..this was my make up remover before but since its 400+ a bottle lol I opted for ponds cold cream which is not bad at all! =)

  8. I found this remover great as I was able to successfully remove my most stubborn mascara aka majolica majorca's lash enamel with just 3 swipes. It is so gentle it doesn't sting my eyes. OH and the best part is the price and how convenient it is, I mean you can easily get this from watsons but I'm not sure if you can get this from guardian.
