I’ve heard good things about Almay’s eye makeup remover and have been seeing a ton of ads for a new line called Simple. So I decided to pair these two brands in my eye make up remover challenge!
Eye Make Up Remover Challenge
Challenge: Remove myface cosmetics liquid liner, Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Liner, MAC Moisturecover Concealer and Benefit Bad Gal Lash
Almay Oil Free Liquid Makeup Remover ($5.99 for 4.0 oz): “America’s #1 eye makeup remover brand. Gentle oil-free liquid removes all traces of makeup without irritation. Botanical blend of aloe, cucumber and green tea nourishes lashes and delicate skin. Makeup is swept away without irritation. Perfect for contact lens wearers. Great for waterproof mascara!”
Simple Eye Make-up Remover ($6.99 for 4.2 oz): “Our Eye Make-up Remover effectively removes even waterproof mascara, plus it’s a perfect blend of our purest possible skin loving ingredients with an added vitamin.”
I held the cotton pad to the swatches for a few seconds, then wiped the area a few times to remove the makeup.
So it looks like both Almay and Simple were not able to remove Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Eyes Liner completely, but Almay removed more of it.
I noticed that Almay did a better job overall in ‘melting’ the makeup. Strange, but Almay left traces of myface’s matte liquid liner, but Simple removed it completely.
Recommendation: Between these two, it’s a close call… but I would probably recommend Almay just because it removed more of the Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Eyes Liner. Plus, it’s cheaper per ounce. I’m not convinced that these are the best out there, so I’ll continue my search and will keep you posted.
Until next time, stay pretty… inside and out!
