I love that paint, but...
It's very difficult to remove from around the eyes.

This is after three washes with facial soap and water, taking care to finger-scrub the eye area

I realized the black didn't seem as obvious in the picture as it did in real life, so here's a cleaner eye for comparison.

This is after a lot of work with a cotton ball, some eye make-up remover and a close-up mirror.

It would have to be right up by the eye and I really don't want face cream or oil there. I still can't believe the eye make-up remover doesn't sting or irritate but I am quite sure the cream or oil will.

For mega-stubborn eye makeup, I've used extra-virgin olive oil. Just pour a bit onto your fingers and rub gently.

I find that the Neutragena eye-make up remover works very well, once I got the vast majority off in the shower.

In fact, the vast majorty just rinsed off (no soap or rubbing), which is why I find the stubborness around the eye rather facinating.

^^ this! Oil is the secret to removing facepaint (and waterproof make-up for sure). I like sesame oil too.
