This Is the Only Makeup Remover You’ll Ever Need
Makeup remover isn’t something you typically read rave reviews about. I get it. Putting makeup on is usually the exciting part; taking makeup off is the part you do bleary-eyed in the bathroom, if you remember. Not super exciting, so rest assured that it takes a truly groundbreaking one to get me revved up. Make Up For Ever Sens’Eyes came to me from the advice a sales associate gave me long ago, and it’s stayed by my side through long-lasting liquid lipstick and mascara that shrink-wraps to your lashes.
From the hundreds of hours I’ve spent playing with beauty products, I have a distinct memory of first trying this one. I was talking to a Sephora cast member while trying to clean makeup off my hands with a tissue and some generic remover, and he took pity and told me to try the blue bottle at Make Up For Ever’s counter. One squirt, and I understood. He was a wise man.
This stuff is incredible: It dissolves pigments in seconds, and after using it to take off all kinds of mascara, I can confirm that it doesn’t make your eyes feel like they were stung by alcohol-soaked bees, like many removers on the market. The bar is too low, but that’s where we are. Out of every product in Sephora, this is the only one that I use every single time I visit, because nothing stands up to it. It’s not just me who thinks this either. To date, Sens’Eyes has gotten nearly 2,000 positive reviews on Sephora alone.
Serial swatchers, people with sensitive eyes, people who use waterproof mascara to lock their lashes into place, people who’ve fallen hard for long-lasting liquid lipsticks, but know the only way to remover them is to buff off your lips—this one’s for you. It’s all fun and games until makeup is stuck to your face.
