See How NYX Be Gone! Lip Color Remover Will Make You Love Liquid Lipsticks Again

Press Sample

Hey everyone!

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.

Check out my review and see how I put it to the test!
Where to Purchase: Ulta.com/Ulta stores, NYXCosmetics.com/NYX stores
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.

Formula:

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. 



Although it does come packaged with a slanted tip, I prefer to squeeze some onto a cotton swab to apply it. The thick balm smooths onto your lips and thins out to help emulsify/break down any long wear lip colors. Once I've gently smoothed it onto my lips with the cotton swab, I rub with the cotton swab to melt the product down. I then use a clean cotton swab or cotton pad to wipe off the product. By then, 90% of the color is gone and I can take a little micellar water on a cotton pad to wipe away any residue. Keep in mind though, this won't remove the stain left behind from the lip product.

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.

From left to right: Ofra Liquid Lipstick in Manhattan, Ofra Liquid Lipstick in Havana Nights, OCC Lip Tar in Kava Kava, NARS Audacious Lipstick in Anna, and Life's Entropy Matte Theory in Variable

The first picture is the below, the middle picture is during, and the last picture is after I used a cotton pad to get rid of the residue.



You can see how it removed all the lip products without any fuss. Like I said, it won't remove the stain that the lip product left behind but your lips do feel softer afterwards.

Conclusion:

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!

    For $5, it sounds worth it though I'm having good luck getting color out with new Exuviance Gentle Cleansing Cream

    How does it compare to the discontinued Sephora Oil-In-Gel Lipstick Remover?

  6. Oh wow! It did a really great job at removing the color from the swatch. I've never used a lip color remover. I normally use aquaphor and wipe it off with a tissue. Great price point too.

  9. I unfortunately don't have it so I can't do a direct comparison but I know the consistencies are different. The Sephora Oil in Gel seemed easier to apply and thinner in consistency whereas this is much balmier

  12. This looks like a really effective and easy to use product. I don't wear liquid lipsticks too often, just because my lips are so dry. This looks like a great, affordable option.

  13. I hate that flaky dried look of a worn out liquid lipstick, and removing them can make my lips sore. This would be great to keep in my purse on days when I'm wearing a liquid matte lip.

  14. Wow, that result is magical! I actually use liquid lipsticks pretty often these days, and this will be perfect.

  17. By far the BEST review on these little eye shadows I've seen. Your descriptions were very informative and helpful! I picked up all the mattes but am undecided between two shimmery ones: Quartz Fume or Pain Au Chocolat. I have gray/blue eyes. Any recommendations?
