This is pretty good, basically a portable, reusable makeup remover soaked Q-tip in pen form. I mainly use it to remove dots of mascara on my eyelids. Sometimes I'll need to retouch my eyeshadow, which is annoying. However, it's a quick, simple fix and the pen very rarely leaves a giant hole in my eye look. A quick dab is really all you need. The tip dirties almost immediately, but as long as you wipe it afterwards it'll last a long time. I usually replace mine every six months unless the tip gets too grubby. Only real issue is that my eyelids feel slightly oily after use. Not like an oil slick, but a noticeable enough residue. But the overall product is convenient and useful enough that I put up with it.

This item is amazing. The only reason I would not purchase again if it ran out or I lost it is because it isn't a necessity to have. You don't actually need it in your collection, but it is pretty convenient!

PROS
Does what it says and removes makeup mistakes.
Use it to clean smudges or make eyeliner wings sharper.
Dries immediately on skin after erasing mistake to make reapplication faster and easier.
Has no scent and does not sting my eyes.
Good size and sturdy packaging.
+ SUPER AFFORDABLE!

I have not came across any cons so far but I will be sure to update this review if I do.

Sure go ahead and try it if you want to!

I've been using this pen for only a week, but I love it already. So much easier and faster to remove mascara from my eyelids than using a cotton q-tip! Or to correct the eyeliner line... After correcting, I make sure I quickly wipe the tip of the pen with a paper tissue and it's clean again.

Do I think it is an absolutely must have product? Probably no. But is it worth trying for this price? Definitely yes.

Oh, how I wish I had discovered this sooner! No longer do I have to be nervous applying red matte lipstick (seriously, who does that perfectly? Certainly not me).

Mostly though, I use this for eyeliner. I tend to use liquid on top and pencil on the bottom lid, and this goes a really long way to helping achieve that perfect thin black line (bonus points for doing that cute wing at the edge).

I also noticed that this comes in handy if you don't have time to reapply your makeup in the evening, but are going out to dinner or whatever. If you keep this in your makeup bag, then you can easily clean up any smudges or the less-than-perfect makeup look that can occur by the end of the day.

*Just be sure to wipe this clean after every use, or else you can expect to just smear your makeup around the next time you use it.

**Also, you can pull out the white tip and turn it around if you want, or you can dip it in makeup remover and just keep using it that way, even when it dries out permanently.

I didn't have too high of expectations for this product, it is ELF afterall, but I was still disappointed. I found that this doesn't really remove all of the product I'm trying to remove (even though it removes some of it), but rather it just applies the makeup remover. I have to go over the makeup with a q-tip to actually get the product off. Overall, I would just rather dip a q-tip in makeup remover and use it instead.

I was pleasantly surprised at this product!

It removes makeup and liquid eyeliner very easily. It doesn't irritate my skin at all, and hasn't dried out. I was shocked, because this is one of the only things that will remove my essence liquid liner. I love the precision tip to touch up any eyeliner or mascara messes!

I will go buy this again - it's a must have!

Basically, I like it. I use it to clean up messes/create cleaner lines when doing eye makeup. It can leave a slightly oily residue behind which I remove with a dry tissue.

I was very skeptical about this product at first but after trying it out the first time im sold. This is such an easy to use makeup remover pen. I use it to remove black marks from my mascara and eyeliner that gets to my undereye area and it does the job very well. The fact that it comes in a pen form makes it very practical to use for everyday. I love it. The price is cheap too. Repurchasing.

This was an excellent development in concept, but poor in execution. It gets the job done, but unlike other users, I don't get the oily residue. I had to run the product several times in the area where the mistakes were, and my eye got irritated from having the under eye area tugged at. The tip not only fell out, but after one use I could not get it clean through any of the recommended ways on the packaging accompanying the product. This was a serious bummer for me, I will stick to the wipes for now, those work better and I'm generally happy with them for the price.

I had one of these & tossed it after a couple of uses coz even thou I wiped the tip, it absorbed my black eye makeup & then proceeded to smear it around on subsequent uses. I read below that soaking it in makeup remover helps so I'm going to try that on the new one I got which I received in my elf subscription box. A better option is Almay's qtips soaked in makeup remover they have them pre-soaked already or even take your own qtips & soak them in your own makeup remover & voila but I do like how the tip is very precise but I was wiping it off after every use even & it still got stained. Awesome concept...poor execution!
