Make Up For Ever has teamed up with pop star Charli XCX to reveal their new Aqua XL Eye Pencils, an enhanced version of the existing Make Up For Ever Aqua Eye Pencil. An updated formula containing emollient oils and mango butter makes for a smoother application, and the pigment is more intensely saturated. The pencils come in a range of 20 vibrant hues, including various shades of blue, green, purple and pastels, along with traditional black and brown. The brand sent over all of them so continue reading for swatches.
The Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencils is an artistic collection of vivid, eye-popping, ultra long-lasting eye pencils in five different finishes- Matte, Diamond, Satin, Iridescent and Metallic. The pencils were tested by professional makeup artists in extreme conditions including under water, on stage and on camera. The highly pigmented pencils glide on rich and smooth and features an exclusive, extra-long (XL) lasting formula, providing XL:
Performance: A revolutionary dry oil locks in the color and creates water resistance- guarantees waterproof, smudge-proof, transfer-proof and sweat-proof results.
Color: Unique, translucent, crystal copolymer gels helps amplify color intensity.
Comfort: Emollient oil and micro-spherical silica provides an easy, creamy and smooth application. Mango butter prevents skin dryness throughout the day.
As mentioned, the Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencils are available in 20 shades. The letter in front of the number represents the finish:
M=Matte, D= Diamond, S= Satin, I = Iridescent, ME= Metallic.
The number matches a shade name (which can be found on Make Up For Ever’s site).
M-10, D-12, M-14, M-16, S-20, M-22, I-24, M-26, M-30, I-32
I-34, I-36, M-40, ME-42, S-50, D-62, M-60, M-80, I-90, M-92
Once completely dry, the Aqua XL Eye pencils do not smudge or budge at all. They stay put all day long without bleeding, running or fading. Since they are waterproof, the pencils are require an-oil based makeup remover. I’ve been testing them out over the last week and I love the pigmentation and longevity. The unexpected pop of color on the waterline looks gorgeous!
