Best Makeup Remover – How to Take Off Stubborn Lipstick


Makeup remover for long-wear lipstick, find an awesome long-wear lipstick at the drugstore, they are so high quality, I love them so much, and it would be awesome if I actually wanted to wear each color all day long, but I was trying to create some magic on it.

I needed to get stuff on and off right away. And using cloths that were just not doing anything, it hurt. I have had to apply and remove lipstick eight times. My lips look like. Fiery, hot pink, stained, raw. And then to top it off, it was freezing in New York City; my lips were already dry and chapped as it was, so that night, the next day, my lips were on fire.

I was determined to find something that easily, effectively, gently removed long-wear lipstick. I tried soaps, I tried wipes, I tried cleansers, and I tried creams. Nothing even came close. And I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.

Almay is my go-to when it comes to removing stubborn eye makeup, especially eyelash glue, which is the worst to remove. So sure enough, it worked awesome on my lips too. And the active ingredient is mineral oil, so it also left my lips feeling really soft and smooth afterward.

Right now, I am wearing one of cover girl’s long-wear two-step colors. This stuff stays on actually all day. It does not come off on anything.

  1. This is date-proof.
  2. This is kiss-proof.
  3. This is drink-proof.

Nope, not going anywhere! And I’m also wearing a waterproof lip liner all over my lips underneath this helps color stay even longer and will make it even harder for it to come off.

This is a Neutrogena makeup wipe. This is what I used on shoot day to try to take off my lip colors each time. And really what it is doing is taking off any little bits of excess, but it is not really doing much to remove the color. And I am really pressing down.

When I use my ALMAY eye makeup remover pad, the oil breaks down the color and the pad helps to smooth out my lips so that they are even softer than before I put the lipstick on. That was so easy.
