Temptalia Asks You

How do you remove lip products? With your regular remover? Something special?

Temptalia's AnswerFor anything with a lot of color or tackiness, I use a cleansing oil, which is the same as what I use for eye and face makeup. If I just want to remove lip color, I like makeup removing wipes or a cotton round with makeup remover on it.

    Christine what oil do you use? I’m in the market for a new one ..Thankyou :)

  2. Usually with micellar water or my cream cleanser/cleansing balm. My lip color is usually just a stain by the time I want to remove it and go to bed, so it’s not too challenging.

  3. I don’t need to remove it, when I arrive home and remove my make up after a long time my lips are completely clean. I don’t apply the products at home and usually by the time I remove my make up I ate and drank and everything so there is no lip products left there.

    Depends on the color, really. If it’s a lighter shade, I’ll usually just rub it off with a napkin or paper towel. If it’s something deeper or stain-heavy, I’ll very carefully remove it with a towel, go over it with cleansing oil, then scrub my face down to make sure it doesn’t stain the area around my mouth. I’ve noticed some lipsticks – particularly fuschias – tend to leave a lingering stain even after I do all that scurbbing, so I generally wear a lighter lip color the next day to tone it down until it wears off completely.

  5. I use my Loreal 2 Phases Eyes&Lips Make-Up Remover, works good with Longwear Lipsticks.

    I use cold pressed, organic coconut oil and then I use a facial wipe.

    I just let it fade lol.

  8. I often just wipe it off, then if there’s still color, I’ll apply a layer of lip balm & wipe it off again. Super easy & quick!

    It depends on the texture : if it’s a matte or very-long wearing formula I use an eye/lips makeup remover ( oily ), if it’s a regular lipstick I often use a cleansing milk or a skin toner, sometimes an eye/lips makeup remover too.

    I just let it come off on its own.

    Bioderma cleansing water!!! Leaves no residue and does the job in one swipe.

    Usually it comes off on its own. If I’m playing around and swatching things I’ll use a makeup remover wipe, or a facial wipe, but often I’ll just use a napkin or a paper towel if I want to exfoliate as well :)

    I drink a lot of water and tea, so I never have to worry about this — everything ends up on my cups eventually! The exception is when something has stained and I have to exfoliate, usually using a toothbrush for convenience.

  14. Amy

    I use Ponds cold cream.

  15. Lark

    The wipes I take the rest of my face off with, either MAC or Neutrogena. I use a lot of bomb proof Pro Lip Pencil from MAC, it comes right off.

  16. Manuela

    Bioderma make up remover. It’s gentle and get even stubborn matte lipstick off.

    I just wipe it off on my the back of my hand and then wash my hands or just use a tissue to wipe it off. I actually like when my lips have been stained by brighter colours because nude lips look so bad on me. I didn’t know people actually used special products to remove lip products…they come off pretty easily for me. 😛

    Honestly, my lip products usually wear off by the end of the day
