Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Waterproof Eyeliner Review and Swatches


It’s eyeliner heaven over here as I have been playing around with the new MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner collection! Wow, that’s a mouthful but worth every breath as these eyeliners are a showstopper! A must have this summer for their beautiful shade variety, impeccable stay all day formula and incredible versatility.

The Collection carries a variety of finishes which include 10 Matte, 5 Iridescent, 2 Diamond, 2 Satiny and 1 Metallic. The shades are incredibly versatile from everyday neutrals, bright pastels and super rich colors. You can see in the swatches below, that the formula does not shy away from pigment.

They glide on so creamy-smooth, leaving just enough time blend before drying at which time these guys are locked in place! When I went to wash the swatches off my arm, it clearly wasn’t going any where with soap and water and a good scrub. I was rubbing pretty hard and you can see it started to break up only a little. Fortunately, a gentle wipe with the MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Waterproof Sensitive Eye Cleanser and it came right off 🙂


Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil Swatches



Aren’t the colors just gorgeous?!!! I have been having a blast playing with all the different looks I can create. Pastel’s are so on trend right now and it’s so easy to line the waterline for an instant pop of color. With the ultra-creamy formula, they glide on so smooth making these eye pencils perfect to use as an eye shadow base. Simply smooth on your lid prior to applying your shadow to make your shadow super intense and allow it to last much longer.

The Aqua XL eye pencils are waterproof, smudge proof and sweat proof making them the ultimate choice for the hot summer months! Plus, with colored mascaras being all the rage this season, these bold and bright eyeliner shades are the perfect compliment!

What colors are you guys sporting this summer? Have you hopped on board the pastel train? Leave a comment below and lets chat 🙂

Cheers, Victoria! kiss

  1. Phew, I don’t feel so mad now. At MUFE for discontinuing the old Aqua liner shades. My HG lower lash line was their Light Taupe shade. It looks like the new Taupe might fit the bill – I don’t love it that it’s shimmery now but I’ll give it a whirl. Thanks for all the swatches! (I’m boring, I stick to browns 😛 )


  2. Nice! Huge Make Up Forever fan. But haven’t tried their eye pencils/liners. I’ve been obssesed with the Stila liquid waterproof eyeliners. I think I’m going have to try one of these in a colour. Great post .


  3. I’ve been needing some new liners that are “Summer Proof”. Thanks for the post, I will be looking into these for sure!


  4. Omg! Those swatches look gorgeous! I’ve been seeing this pastel tend but haven’t tried it yet. I think I’d like the purple.


  5. I have been using the yellow pastel as my top eyeliner and I love how it looks!! I get compliments on it all the time! This formula is hands down the best I’ve ever used! Those iridescent shades look pretty amazing, I will have to check them out. Thanks for the great post 🙂


  6. I have the black and pastel purple! They are amazing. I swatched my hand and I scrubbed it probably 5 times that day with soap and water and they don’t budge!
