Have I ever mentioned how much I love Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes waterproof eyeliner pencils? A lot. It’s a lot. They’re amazing, and this is coming from someone who never, ever, ever wears pencil liner, let alone carry it in my working makeup kit.
A pop of Aqua Eyes lasts all day without smudging – even the darkest colours – and the pencil itself has enough malleability to be blended or shaped before it sets locktight. The metallic liners are truly metallic and the sheen colours have a flattering satiny appearance that photographs well without reflecting back. Literally the only downside is one that applies to all pencils, and that is the constant sharpening to achieve a finer point/hygienic application. It can feel spectacularly wasteful to watch so much liner get sharpened off, particularly when Make Up For Ever products aren’t widely distributed in Australia and I can’t just pop to the mall to buy a replacement!
Most pencil liners are a smudgy, sliding, smeary mess on me – or a crying bride – after only an hour or two, but not these liners. Five stars out of five, I’m a convert.
