Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner Review and Swatches

The Make Up For Ever Aqua Liners that debuted at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami last year are finally here!

Make Up For Ever Aqua Liners

Formulated with acrylic copolymer that forms a flexible film to lock water out, together with amino acids derived from apply juice, the Aqua Liner promises to deliver a long-lasting, waterproof result with high-color intensity and bold pay-off.

The liner is packaged exactly like Stila Sparkle Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner and MAC Superslick Liquid Eye Liner, and comes in a long, slim tube with a small foam tip that allows great precision.

The 15 shades available range from bright hues of blue, green, purple, gold, fuchsia, burgundy to work-safe colors like black and brown, and come in 3 finishes. Matte is a flat color, Iridescent comes with tiny shimmer and Diamond leaves behind a sparkling finish.

I have two colors – #16 Diamond White, a frosty silvery white that works great on the tear duct and #8 Iridescent Electric Purple, a shimmery royal purple that makes brown eyes pop.

Just like the Stila, the Aqua Liner glides on easily with great ease. Pigmentation too is great and it wears very well throughout the day with zero flaking, smudging or fading too.
