A long-wearing, waterproof eye pencil that pairs ultra-creamy glide with instant colour intensity?! YES, PLEASE!!!
MAKE UP FOR EVER had joined forces with pop star Charli XCX to create this collection of Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliners. Charli’s bold, artistic, transformative nature and energetic stage presence exemplify the creative spirit of MAKE UP FOR EVER and the Aqua XL collection.
This waterproof liner, known as a pro artist favourite, provides a superior, long-lasting formula that will not smudge, crease, or fade until it’s removed by makeup remover. Its innovative formula blends ultra-pigmented colour with a super-gliding texture. Super previse and ultra-resistant, this versatile liner’s smooth texture effortlessly glides onto lids. Perfect for creating a tight line but also creamy enough to easily blend with a brush for a soft, blurry finish. With 20 shades that range from everyday neutrals to bright pastels and five different finishes: matte, satiny, iridescent, metallic or diamond, there’s something for everyone.
I personally love these Aqua XL Eye Pencils! As claimed, they go on smooth and easy, smudge proof, long lasting, and very pigmented! With the selection of colours available, it’s like a box of pencil crayons. I have yet to try out other shades besides Matte Black and Pastel Purple but judging by the swatches from fellow bloggers, I honestly love every colour. I’m usually a basic, everyday neutral liner gal, so Matte Black was up my alley. But playing with the Matte Pastel Purple was experimental and fun! I will definitely be using Pastel Purple and probably pick up a few other fun colours to play around throughout the summer.
