With so many makeup companies jumping on the liquid lipstick/long wear lipstick trend, the issue of makeup remover is ever more important. Typically you'd use an oil-based remover to get rid of the lipstick but I highly suggest trying the NYX Be Gone! Lip Color Remover.
You might be thinking "why bother, I could just use coconut oil or a makeup wipe". While that's true, coconut oil can cause breakouts around your lips if you're acne prone and it can take multiple makeup wipes get the color off. This makes the process so much easier.

Price: $5.00 for .43 oz/13 mL
Do they test on animals?: The company does not test on animals.
Packaging: The Be Gone! Lip Color Remover comes in a squeeze tube with a slant tip. Given the consistency of the product (thoughts below), I think the packaging can be a pain. I think if it was packaged in a jar with a spatula, that would have been much easier to use.
The Be Gone! Lip Color Remover is a thick pink tinted balm. Did I mention that it's got a thick consistency and can be difficult to squeeze out of the tube, especially if it's cold out? You might have to stick it into your pocket for a minute or two to let it warm up before squeezing the product out.
My lips feel softer after using it, which is always a plus when a lot of long wear/liquid lipsticks are super drying. It's excellent for the casual or dedicated long wear/liquid lipstick wearer, especially if your lips are in need of conditioning.
Here's how it broke down several lip products including long wear/liquid lipsticks.

Considering it's only $5.00, I highly suggest picking it up if you're even a casual long wear/liquid lipstick wearer because it makes removal so much easier. If you've been looking for an alternative to other oil based removers, this will be perfect for you!
