Review: Sephora Collection Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover

Assalamualaikum and hello my gorgeous people!

So I have this makeup remover for a while and I haven't really had a chance to really try it out because I didn't really put on a heavy eye makeup or waterproof mascara so I'm like bishhhh you bettah try this stuff coz there's like so many bomb reviews on it. So yeah. Hahahah. Let's!

To be honest I am actually so over of this kind of makeup remover (the blue and water stuff ?) because I have been using the L'Oreal Gentle Lip & Eye Makeup Remover for so long and sometimes it just didn't work at all. Tried to remove my waterproof makeup and it sucked so bad and it burned my eyes and I was just so fricking frustrated. But I don't know why I keep on buying em, like I know it does not work with some waterproof mascaras, the Maybelline mascara is seriously a bitch to get off ya know?

So I was on my way to pay for my items at Sephora and this makeup remover was near the display on the check out counter. I'm like, hmm this stuff has so many good reviews so why not aku try? Plus, I can't rely on my cleansing oil only to remove my waterproof mascara and you know how I feel about the L'Oreal one. LOL. I decided to buy the small bottle (50ml) coz I just wanna test it out. If I liked it, of course I would buy the bigger size. Bigger size, more value. LOL

They have 3 different sizes - 50ml (RM25), 125ml (RM43) and 200ml (RM55). It is a bit pricey for me because the L'Oreal one has 150ml of product and it was only about RM24 and Watson's macam selalu gila buat offer on it, nampak sangat tak laku sangat. (insert emoji smirking face LOL)

Cost breakdown as below:
50ml - RM25 (RM0.50/ml)
125ml - RM43 (RM0.34/ml)
200ml - RM55 (RM0.28/ml)

Very large differences between 50ml & 125ml... Sephora, you sneaky little bitch.

First impression: Removes heavy eye makeup so easily, doesn't sting my eyes, I don't have to rub my eyes so many times to get the mascara off, leaves an oily residue as it is an oil-based makeup remover

I gotta say, I'm quite impressed. I don't know why I am so late jumping on this Sephora Eye Makeup Remover bandwagon. Kahkah. Anyways, I included few demos... Demo ke... Tah lah.

Right eye - Clean as a whistle
Left eye - Ooooffff messy eye makeup but on point? ON POINT KAN KAN KAN

Super easy to remove! No need to rub so hard one

See, no redness coz it's awesome

Like I said in my first impression, it does leave an oily residue but it wasn't like super oily and the most important thing ever, they don't sting my eyes at all! It is not watery at all and it doesn't have harsh chemicals in it but I'm not sure if it's okay on sensitive skin cause I read some reviews, some people's skin reacted differently so I cannot really say if it's safe or not. But it's quite delicate.

So I have been using it for few weeks and so far no breakouts. I am amazed on how effective it is. Haha. If I were to compare it to the L'Oreal one, OMG just don't buy that one. It's fricking horrible. It can't even remove my Maybelline Rocket mascara ya know? I have to tonyoh my eyes which is a really bad move but what to do... So hard to remove em. -_-

Okay so it claims to do a few things...

> HydroSenn+: Moisturizes intensely; forms a protective barrier on the skin's surface to retain water for optimal moisture that lasts all day.
Uhm... I don't know man. Everytime I uses it, I will cleanse my face, like the whole shebang
> Procapil®: Supports natural lash growth.
Uhmmm... Don't see any difference...
> Cornflower Extract: Softens and soothes skin.
Like I said, I always cleanse my face after using it
> Pro-vitamin B5: Supports natural cell renewal and has moisturizing properties.
Lagi lah taktau oahiskdjasd

Even though it claims to do all of that stuff, as long as it's effective in removing my makeup, I'm okay with it. LOL

Removes waterproof eye makeup so easily
Doesn't sting my eyes
Doesn't make me break out

Oily residue (but bearable)

Final thoughts: Totally gonna be my go to eye makeup remover. This is an amazing product! Sephora brand is not that bad, I love their cleansing water as well! But the price is a little bit more than average but still bearable lagi lah. I'm gonna keep on repurchasing it because I think it's the only makeup remover yang betul-betul removes my waterproof mascara without me having to rub my eyes lah, pull my lashes lah. Dang! Not sure how it will react on sensitive eyes so yeah. Love it!

Rating: ★★★★☆

So that's it for tonight.

I really hope you guys find this helpful in any way.

Thank you for reading!



  1. Hai Pah,

    Any suggestion for good cleansing brush? (:

    1. Hi Zafirah!

      U mean cleansing brush for face kan?

      I'm currently using Mr DIY punya cleansing pad mcm Sephora Cleansing Pad tu. (

      Mr DIY punya only RM3 mcm tu. Kalau brush mcm battery powered tu I dulu pkai Olay but its a bit harsh on my skin so silicone pad ni very delicate utk skin I

  2. Ok, boleh try Mr. Diy punye plus murahhhh. haha.
