Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes

Hello, Beautiful!

Continuing the Week Of Make Up For Ever, I bring you one of my favorite eyeliners; Aqua Eyes!

I love these liners because they apply smoothly, have great pigmentation, are waterproof, and last all day! I wear these to the amusement park and never need to worry about my eyeliner; I know it's not going to budge!

I only own Aqua Eyes in the shade 0L Mat Black, but I do want them in other shades. I have about four of the same shade, two that are mini's and two that are full sized. I use them until they are tiny nubs, which is something I rarely do with any eyeliner.

They don't last in the inner rim/waterline of my eye, but there isn't a whole lot that will. Other people can wear them on their inner rim/waterline with no problems; I wish I could do that because then I wouldn't need any other liners. But still, this is a GREAT liner!

Onto swatches...

Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes: Shade 0L Mat Black
Shade Description: A rich black; no shine (hence the "mat" part of the shade name). Your basic, need to have it, black shade.
[Sorry that the pencil shown below is so little; it's actually the longest pencil I have left in this shade. I use them way too often and didn't take pics of it when I first received it.]

Basic stats for Make Up For Ever's Aqua Eyes:
Formula: pencil; creamy and smooth
Coverage: highly pigmented
Wear: all-day wear; waterproof!
Shade Range: 25 shades on
Container Type: regular width pencil with pull-off clear cap
Cost: $18 for 0.04 oz size
Availability: Found at Sephora and
My Rating: 5 out of 5 Kisses!

This pencil is awesome. Smooth and creamy, no tug or pull. Glides on like butter. You can also use them as a high-intensity eyeshadow. They can blend out, but the formula sets quickly so you need to work fast; once they're set they won't budge!

Highly pigmented pencils that give you the color you want in just one swipe.

Because they're waterproof you know they'll last all day! No budging, smearing, or creasing.

Shade Range:
25 awesome shades, from everyday basics (like Mat Black and Pearly Brown), to bright pops of color (like Turquoise and Pistachio). There is a shade for everyone!

Container Type:
This is a regular width pencil so you don't need a special sharpener; any sharpener will work. Cap fits nicely, which is a thing some people don't realize makes a difference. I have some liner caps that fall off so easily and then the pencil tip breaks or gets all over everything in my bag because the cap fell off. I don't have that problem with these liners.

For $18 it is a bit pricey for a liner, but then again all Make Up For Ever products on are the higher end of prices. To me, it's totally worth it. I know I can reach for this and know I'll have great color and long-wear. If you can only afford one then you'll want to go with 0L Mat Black; it's your must-have black liner.
