Mommy Makeup Monday: The e.l.f. Makeup Remover Pen

On Mondays, I share a tip, product or tutorial that will help you look polished and put-together quickly and with minimal effort.  You definitely don't have to be a rushed mom to benefit from these posts...anyone who needs to be out-the-door fast (and who doesn't?!) can appreciate Mommy Makeup Mondays!

Happy Monday!

Today I want to share a tool that I use all. the. time for quick touch ups and to get those pesky mascara smudges off my face.  I featured this product in my November Favorites, but decided it needed its own post!

The e.l.f. Studio Makeup Remover Pen ($3) is one of the best little items I own!  I grabbed mine at Target after hearing about it on Josh Collier's YouTube channel.  Until I found this gem, I have to be honest, I had never used an e.l.f product that I actually liked, so I was a bit skeptical.  The makeup remover pen, however, is an awesome find!

The pen is the perfect size for getting into the corners of your eye or below your lower lashes.  It is filled with an oil-based makeup remover that works wonderfully for taking off excess or smudged makeup.  It does leave a slight residue behind, but I have found that it quickly absorbs into my skin once it dries, or I can just rub it in if I'm in a rush.  

The applicator is a cross between a sponge tip and a felt tip, but it is hard enough that you get complete control over it.  Another plus...when the tip starts to get dirty and filled with makeup, pull it out and flip it over for a perfectly clean side! 

I've used this pen at least a few times a week either to fix blotched mascara application or to touch up in the afternoon when my makeup is all smudged...and it's lasted me a good 6 months, and is still going strong. 

Overall, this is an all-time favorite product of mine!  I will definitely continue to purchase it, and I love that it's a great steal at only $3!

Have you tried this pen?  Do you love it as much as I do?

As always, everything in this post is my honest personal opinion.  No affiliate links were used.  I have not accepted any consideration for sharing these items with you.  Unless indicated otherwise, all products were purchased by me with my own money.
