Ever since my discovery of They're Real (The Benefit mascara that the interwebs are, understandably losing their shizz over) last year I've been converted.
It applies like a dream and lasts and lasts and lasts and feckin' lasts! So much so that it is ESSENTIAL that you remove it every night. I'm going to be honest here and admit that I never removed my makeup properly pre -They're Real but now I don't have much choice.

Not all removers are capable of vanquishing this epic lash batter though, Estée Lauder puts up a good fight but Holy Moly it hasn't a patch on Bobbi Brown!
Bobbi Brown says: This extra gentle waterproof makeup remover effectively removes long-wearing and waterproof eye and lip makeup, while conditioning lashes. Bobbi Brown Instant Long-Wear Makeup Remover leaves eyes and lips clean and pleasantly refreshed. Safe for contact lens wearers. Dermatologist and Ophthalmologist tested.
It's a duo-phase (oil & water) remover, which mean you have to shake the bejesus of it before use and use it sparingly. Really do, I didn't on first attempt and ended up like a greasy panda. Attractive.
Used properly its a super gentle miracle worker, apparently it works on long wear lip stains too but I've yet to come across one of those that needed removal. Ever.
I got this as a pressie with a few other Bobbi Brown bits (that I'll show ye soon) from my very generous Sis but it's available from House of Fraser for £15 should you be so inclined. In yo' face, Benefit! Well, in mine really.
