Review: Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes

Since I visit the US only once every year or two, I never picked up the Sephora beauty gift. I realized later that you can pick one up every year regardless of whether it is your actual birthday month or not.  This is a review of the Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes eyeliner, part of the Sephora birthday gift for 2014.

What it does: (from the Sephora website)

A must have in your makeup bag, this waterproof eyeliner does not smudge or fade throughout the day. It’s formulated to glide on effortlessly, making it easy to define your eyes. Available in an array of vibrant shades, this liner is guaranteed to make your eyes pop.

Waterproof, highly pigmented, and smudge-proof, the Aqua collection of long-lasting lip and eye colors was created for the Parisian Aquatic Ballet. Tested under water for five hours, Make Up For Ever’s longest wearing makeup has an extensive palette of high-performance colors with non-stop results. This product is fragrance free and ophthalmologist tested.

Price: $19

Availability: This and other MUFE products are available at free standing Make Up For Ever stores, in department stores, Sephora, and on the MUFE website.



  • This was a very dark pigmented eyeliner!
  • This product is available in over 25 shades. If you are looking for a different shade of eyeliner, you might find it in the Aqua Eyes line up.


  • This product smudged on my eyes. Even though I was wearing it on my upper lash line, it transferred under my eyes A LOT.


Would I repurchase? No. I don’t understand how MUFE can claim that this is smudge proof, since this product smudged more than any eyeliner I have tried in recent years!


I’m disappointed that this eyeliner did not work for me, but I’m glad I got to try it.

If you are looking for a smudge proof pencil eyeliner, I suggest the Jordana 12 HR Made to Last eyeliner. It does not smudge on my eyes, and it is only $2.50!


Hope you enjoyed this review!
