all of our recent chatter about bold lips reminded me that as much as i love them, i do have one gripe: i hate when you can still see their remnants the next morning. lets be honest, all of the best bolds require a primer, a liner or, in the best case, their own formulas are just so long wearing that they can be a bit of a pain to remove. i stumbled upon this slick little tube at sephora last week and i think it’s a stroke of genius.
if you’ve ever tried to use liquid makeup remover to take off your lipstick, you know that it does not do nice things to your lips. this remover from sephora, specially formulated for lipstick, is gentle and soothing – and it works fast to remove even the most adhering stains and pigmented shades. i put a little on a cotton swab, smear it on and let it sit for 30 seconds before removing with a wet wash cloth. it’s easy to use and it does not require any rubbing or tugging to rid your lips of your favorite lacquer. best of all, my lips are no worse for the wear when the process is over.
it’s one of those products that i never knew i was missing, but one that alleviates a major beauty pain. if you’re a fan of the bold lip, matte lip, stained lip or lacquered lip you’re surely going to want to add this to your #lipbomb.
