REVIEW - Maybelline Makeup Remover - Eye & Lip + Father's day pictures

Hi ladies. :3

As we all know, we tend to lean toward makeup products that have long staying power.For mascara and eyeliner most of us prefer those that are waterproof.
Who wouldn't right...? No one wants racoon eyes. >o<

The only problem with these kind of makeup is it's pretty hard to get them to come off once they're on. :/
Before, I used olive oil to remove my makeup. It effectively removes makeup. But it's greasy and is very hard to rinse off. >.<
I also had to rub it on my eyes and face. Now, we all know that rubbing is a no-no in skin care so I tried to look for a better makeup remover.

I have constantly been on a look out for one but I always find a better excuse to stick to olive oil. :3
Then one day I saw Maybelline's makeup remover and thought why not try it...? It only costs 99Php or 2+USD after all.
The Virgin olive oil I was using was more expensive LOL! x)

A photo of the product grabbed from some random site.
Here's my bottle - almost empty which is actually good 
since it means I really use this a lot!


Maybelline says:
It is efficient & Easy ✔
The formula instantly removes all eye and lip makeup, even waterproof and non-transfer.

Gentle ✔
Formulated for sensitive eyes it is especially very gentle for the delicate skin around your eyes.

To USE:
Shake well before use. Soak a cotton pad with the lotion and apply on our eyes or lips. Follow facial cleansing with Maybelline foam or Cleansing Milk.

From upper right corner
 1. with eye makeup. Errrr sorry I've been quite busy and tired lately. :/
2. Soaked cotton pad with the product.
3. Gently press on the eyes for about 5-10 seconds.
4. Ewwwww!!!! >.< Dirt! 
5. Can you see the eyeliner, and sparkles? >.<
6. Clean without a speck of makeup left. :3

I usually wash my face afterwards I apply this product. I then use a toner to further clean my face and moisturize afterwards.

Why I  it:
1. It's light and not greasy. 
2. It doesn't irritate my skin and did not break me out. 
3. No stinging effect. 
4. Doesn't have a weird smell. 
5. It effectively removes makeup! 
6. It made my life easier. 
7. It's budget friendly. 


I can't think of any cons. Hmmm... :/


So, if you're looking for a good makeup remover I suggest you give this one a try.






So here are some photos from last Sunday. 


FOTD
Face: Etude House Dr. Oil Solution Shine free dual primer, Revlon PhotoReady 004 Nude, MAC Studio Fix NC 30
Eyes: Etude House Drawing Eye Brow, Etude House Tear Drop Liner, Prestige Biggest Lashes in Black and Maybelline Eyestudio Gel Liner in Black
Lips: HNN in peppermint and MAC Cremesheen Creme in Cup

My family had lunch in C2 in Rockwell,Powerplant. It was really crowded and we spent the rest of the day malling and getting some grocery shopping done.

C2 had an offering for Father's Day - a set meal of bagoong rice, crispy pata, kare-kare and pancit puti. We tried it and added prawns in aligue, tawilis and bibinka souffle.

Pancit Puti
Bagoong Rice 
This complimented the Kare-kare very well. :3
Kare kareng Baka
Boneless Crispy Pata
I don't know why it looks burnt in the photo. LOL! But it really isn't.
Fried Tawilis
FYI - Tawilis is the fish that's used to make dried fish or "tuyo". :)
Prawns in Aligue Sauce
Can I just say that my family orders this to taunt me because
I'm allergic to crustaceans. x(
Bibinka Souffle
This is very soft and fluffy but I didn't like it. :/

Dessert at Astralis:

I'm sorry everyone is just so uncooperative at taking photos LOL! :/ 
So yeah, I wasn't able to take a photo of all time favorite ube ensaymada. I actually brought three home but I forgot to take photos and ate all of them. x)
Fruit platter with sorbet

Fluffy Japanese cheesecake :3


I don't know what this actually is but the gave it to my dad 
because it's father's day. It was actually sweet of them to do 
so... ^-^


LOL! cheesy family picture taken at the mall.
This picture was given to us for free. :3

That's all. Sorry for the long post. :) I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend!

xxx,
Sugar

I've head a lot of great things about the make-up remover!

Yay! You mademe hungry with those food pics! The cheesecake looks great!

sugar sugar said...

Giddy Princess - Thank you. :) Maybe you should give this a try? I think L'oreal also has one but I heard that it was sort of greasier. >.<

Degaine - It was. Thanks!

Anastacia - Everything you heard is true LOL! :) I have been using this for more than 2 weeks and I haven't found anything to complain about.

The food was great and yummy to the tummy. x) LOL! Thanks. You should eat. Maybe you can also have some cheesecake for dessert. ;)

Kitten said...

Interesting review about the Maybelline make up remover, as for me I'm just satisfied with the PONDS cold cream. Yummy looking food photos on your dad's special day. Thanks for sharing your post, loved it. ^_^

jellytelly_ri-chan said...

I should try this out too.... been looking for a good make up remover but I'm happy with Biore's makeup remover tissues.... hahah but they are kinda expensive though... maybe I should try for cheap alternatives hehehe. thanks for the tips.

and wonderful yummy food photos!!! love your dessert especially!!! and I like your FTOD for the day. hehehe lovely and neat!

MINAKICHU said...

That makeup remover sure looks good. Your skin looks so nice and fresh too! And the food you posted is making my tummy growl:-( yumyum!

Leenda said...

That makeup remover looks like a miracle in a bottle. lol Maybe I'll try it next whenever I finish my current bottle. Does it feel greasy on your skin though once you take off all of your makeup?

sugar sugar said...

nisa-chan - I totally agree with you! :)

Kitten - Thank you! Glad you liked the post. :3 I don't like ponds cuz it's greasy and I'm too lazy LOL! I think Ponds cold cream takes a lot of work. >.<

ri-chan - when you run out of Biore you should give this a try if you want. :3 I also like Biore but it's not locally available here haha!

Thanks for your compliment haha! That's actually how I look like everyday I think only the hair varies. LOL! Yes, the dessert were especially yummy!

MINAKICHU - Thankyou. :3 I think it's because of natural lighting haha! :) If you want you can give this a try also since it's a really cheap alternative. Before I started using olive oil I was using the Shu Uemura cleansing oil. I think they're all equally good but Maybelline is easier and quicker to use. LOL!

Leenda - Hello. :) Actually I was expecting it to be greasy but it isn't. I do think that the product has oil but it's minimal and I can hardl feel it. :3

Shop N' Chomp said...

Great to hear you had a lovely Father's Day! I'm really digging that food porn...hehe. ;) The m/u remover sounds amazing. I'll have to see if they carry it here.

Mary said...

Thanks for the eye makeup remover review!!

xxMK
Delightful Bitefuls

Lady E said...

I've been planning to buy Maybelline's makeup remover since forever! I'm just waiting to finish my Etude House makeup remover. Thanks for reviewing this Sugar!

sugar sugar said...

Shop N' Chomp - They probably do. :) I haven't been paying much attention to Maybelline. The only reason I saw this product was because it was always displayed on top of the toners shelves. LOL!

Mary - You're welcome. :)

Lady E - You're welcome. I think this is cheaper than Etude House's but I am not completely sure. ;)
