New In | Almay Makeup Remover Sticks

Hey Beauties!

Today, I wanted to share one of my new must haves for when I’m applying my makeup. Beauty is naturally a messy hobby, powders fly everywhere, lipstick smudges and foundation stains so I am constantly cleaning up little spills and carrying around a million q-tips. Just a few weeks ago I was using makeup wipes (specific to sensitive eyes) to remove tiny little smudges of eyeliner and it was getting quite frustrating so of course I turned to the Internet to find an easier solution. I stumbled across a mention of the Almay Oil-Free Makeup Eraser Sticks and ran right out to buy them. Let’s just say I have found a new addiction.

Almay is known for their “good for you” cosmetics, being the very first hypoallergenic brand that is completely suitable for sensitive skin. They are committed to making their products safe for all skin types and allergies. They are all 100% fragrance free and safe for people who wear contact lenses because they are incredibly stringent on the ingredients they allow in their products. For those reasons, I was completely confident that I could feel safe putting this product by my incredibly sensitive eyes. 

These handy little sticks look just like any other q-tip but in reality they are very different. These sticks are actually hollow and filled with oil-free makeup remover! They’re incredibly easy to use, just snap off the tip with the purple line and give it a little shake. The liquid will flow down to the remaining tip and it will become fully saturated. Then just swipe the tip along any smudges or mistakes that you want to remove. These little guys are pretty powerful and will remove the most stubborn of makeup, so use a light hand and be prepared to repair your eyeshadow underneath. 

The Almay Makeup Eraser Sticks come in a nice plastic case that is perfect for throwing in your bag and each pack comes with 24 sticks. They have no fragrance and I have not experienced any sort of irritation and the best bit is they only cost $6.99! 

My makeup routine has been forever changed now that I have these magical little sticks in my life. If you are having any trouble with smudging or eyeliner mistakes then I highly recommend you give these a try!

    Ooh thats pretty cool how it works! These would be great, I usually just bring extra concealer to fix any smudging but it doesn't always work the greatest. I think I remember seeing them in the store and thinking they were just regular q-tips though :pMichelle | A Lovely Allure

    Wow this is so interesting! I've never seen these before! Very good for travel I can see so you don't have to have Qtips and a makeup remover solvent separately in your makeup bag!
