If you've been struggling to remove your pool-proof mascara or lip color lately, listen up: Elizabeth Arden All Gone Eye and Lip Makeup Remover ($16) is your saving grace. The formula has two phases — one for dissolving, and one for hydrating — that act quickly and gently to remove even the most stubborn waterproof makeup without leaving an oily residue. Just make sure to give it a good shake in order to combine the layers of ingredients.
Recently, after I spent a long day (and night) wearing waterproof liquid eyeliner, mascara, and hot pink lipstick, a few drops of All Gone on a cotton pad did the trick, and quickly. Never mind that your lip color is transfer-proof; All Gone can cut through it with zero problem. It's unscented, leaves no traces of makeup, and doesn't require any tugging — so you won't lose lashes in the process.
