With the launch of Benefit’s They’re Real Remover AND Liner, I wanted to see if the remover could really remove the new gel liner… along with 6 other very popular eye liners. Hard to remove eye liners to be exact. 😉
Let the challenge begin!
Benefit | They’re Real Remover | Available here for $18
This creamy gel formula effectively erases waterproof eye makeup without tugging the delicate eye area. Gentle yet powerful, it’s specially formulated to remove long-wearing mascara and eyeliner, and it leaves skin feeling soft, clean, and smooth.
To really put the removers to the test, I’ve lined up some eye liners that are a doozy to remove. Let’s see what this remover (and liners!) are really made of. 😉
Below are swatches of Benefit’s NEW They’re Real! Push Up Liner plus 6 other popular liquid, pencil, and gel liners.
Below, I’ve put a dollop of remover next to each liner.
In the photo below, I’ve rubbed the remover over each swatch before wiping with a cotton pad.
Surprisingly, Benefit’s They’re Real! Push Up Liner did not remove completely! I thought this remover was specifically made to remove this liner?!? Too Faced’s 3 Way and Eyeko’s liquid liners really stuck on.
While I think Benefit’s remover worked ok… it wasn’t a home run. Maybe I had too high expectations from Benefit because I generally LOVE their products (seen here and here). Don’t get me wrong, it worked comparable to other removers I’ve tried… but it wasn’t a game changer. At least it didn’t sting or irritate my eyes. 🙂
In the next few days, I’ll post a review of my current favorite remover so please come back for that post. I’ll show how it performed in removing the same 7 liners shown above and I’ll also show a side by side comparison to Benefit’s Remover.
I hope this post has been helpful.
Please let me know if you have a makeup remover!
