Don't get it in your eye. Seriously. It burns like crazy. However, after I was done cursing and spraying cold water into my steaming eyesockets and the burning sensation faded, it did appear to have taken off my eye makeup- waterproof gel liner, eyeshadow, eyelid primer, setting powder AND setting spray. So, it works like a nuclear bomb would work for an ant infestation in your bed room: not ideally, but it would get the job done. But... really, really not ideally.
