Beauty Review: Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes

Email This Post January 24th, 2008 nicky

Pros: It goes on very easily for a pencil, when you drag it across your lash line, it feels creamy- not dry like some pencils do. Also, it is waterproof and lasted the whole day without smudging. Cons: The black color was very muted, almost a charcoal gray instead, so I was not very happy with the pigmentation. Also, I have a pet peeve of sharpening liners and I prefer the Revlon Colorstay because it is a twist up liner that I don’t have to sharpen every day. Bottom line: It’s a good pencil liner but not as good on my eyes as Revlon’s. Plus at double the price of my go-to liner, it’s definitely not worth a change for me!

    I currently use Revlon ColorStay and I find that when I use a pencil it feels very harsh!
    I much prefer the wind up eyeliner

    I also tried Sephora’s sample of Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes, and I agree that the color is more charcoal than pure black. However, i think it’s a great pencil to create the smokey-eye look. I’m actually wearing it right now. =)

    But, yes, definitely NOT the choice for a crisp, thin, black line.

    You’re right Alex, it would work for a smokey look.

    I agree with you. I love Revlon ColorStay. I have tried many eye liners, and this is my favorite. It’s a keeper.
