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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. 😛
