I don't know about you, but when it comes to taking off my makeup? I. Am. Lazy. I mean, I'll do it -- but I want the act to be as easy and least consuming of my time as possible. So whenever I can get away with using a cleansing wipe instead of actual cleanser, cotton balls, pads, you name it? Sign me up. Enter Tarte Fresh Eyes Maracuja Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Wipes.

These wipes really do perform wonders -- and not just because they have the longest name on the planet. (It's probably in spite of that.) These wipes claim to remove waterproof eye makeup, and I'm here to tell you that they absolutely do.

I've been pretty much exclusively wearing Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24Hr eyeshadows as of late. And while their staying power is unparalleled, that also means they're incredibly hard to remove at the end of the night. (Or, okay, the next morning. Because let's be honest, I already told you how lazy I am.) Well, one Tarte Fresh Eyes wipe and every inch of eyeshadow (and mascara, and eyeliner) is GONE. Plus, one wipe works for both eyes! Pretty miraculous.

My one complaint is that these wipes leave a bit of greasy sheen on the skin, so I typically have to splash some water on my face after using them. But since they really do remove all my makeup, I can't complain TOO much. Plus, they're biodegradable, so they're good for the earth!

Tarte Fresh Eyes Maracuja Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover Wipes are $12 for a pack of 30 at


  1. I didn't even realize that Tarte made Makeup Wipes! Thanks for the excellent review! I definitely need to check these out!

  2. I've heard good things about the Tarte wipes. Other than the sheen, they sound very nice

  3. What's funny is I was looking at this on the tarte website yesterday! And, I'm SO glad to hear they work THAT well. I'm definitely going to pick up a pack for myself on my next trip to Sephora. :)

  4. These are wonderful. I use them when I have a heavy makeup day as step 1 lol.

  5. I have heard some good things about this product, but it would drive me nuts to feel a greasy feeling after I would have cleaned my eyes. I do love Marcuja though.
