My love operates on two wavelengths: love and leave or love and hoard. When it comes to the Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Waterproof Eyeliners I absolutely love them and want to hoard every single shade. Every. Single. Shade. Why? In a nutshell, they’re probably one of the best eyeliner formulas of all time * in my Kanye West voice *.
One of the first shades I’ve tried is 11L, a vibrant cool blue-violet with a slight purple pearl, and it completely blew me away. This baby is pigmented, creamy and looks beautiful against brown skin. I love smudging it along my bottom lash line to intensify and add a fun touch of color to any look. It’s pretty versatile!
11L glides across the skin smoothly with a creamy texture that doesn’t drag or pull. The formula provides full coverage in a single swipe and it’s pretty easy to use. Whether you’re defining your lids or smudging for some smoky action 11L gets the job done! You’ll have just enough time to smudge and blend until your little heart is content before 11L sets into a lean, mean budge-proof machine.
That’s actually the reason I’m SO head over heels with 11L. This thing just doesn’t quit! Anyone that knows me knows that my eyes are constantly watery. I’m talking waking up with teary, crusty eyes to just walking outside on a windy day and encountering Niagara Falls. It’s pretty intense. Usually eyeliners don’t last all day on my waterline. But this baby here? Just keeps holding on! It wears for well over 10 hours on my lash line before showing any signs of fading and hangs on for a solid 6-7 hours on my waterline. Even at the very end of the day I’ll still see traces of purple–whereas most eyeliners would have completely disappeared.
The Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Eyeliners may seem a little overpriced at $19 but if you have oily lids or watery eyes I absolutely think they’re worth the investment. I can’t rave about 11L enough!
