News flash! You need to seriously run, not walk, and pick up the new AquaXL Eye Pencils by Make Up For Ever. I’ll be honest, I have an old sample of their Aqua Eyes eyeliner and I am not a huge fan. But the new AquaXL eye pencils? They are worth every pretty penny!
The AquaXL eye pencils were created in collaboration with Charli XCX, most famously known for her song “Boom Clap” but is featured on one of my personal favourites, “I Love It” by Icona Pop. The collection contains twenty shades in five different finishes – matte, diamond, satin, iridescent and metallic and include every color from basic brown and black to Tiffany blue and lilac purple. They are also waterproof, smudge-proof, sweat-proof and transfer-proof, while providing intense pigmentation and comfortable wear.
The formula of the pencils is amazing – it is creamy and smooth and literally glides across the eyelid. The only downside of this is that it doesn’t stay sharp for long as it basically melts when pressed into the skin. Nothing that a pencil sharpener can’t fix though (I have this one and love it!). Aside from the amazing formula, this eyeliner also offers excellent staying power. I work 12-hour shifts and it lasts all day without smudging! I actually have to work hard to remove it at the end of the day. Luckily, the Make Up For Ever Sens’Eye Waterproof Sensitive Eye Cleanser does a great job of removing my waterproof makeup without burning my sensitive eyes.
The Make Up For Ever AquaXL Eye Pencils are available for purchase at here and here and in Sephora stores across Canada for $25 each. If you are a VIB Rouge at Sephora, you can also buy the Charli XCX Festival Fave 4-pack for a steal at $58!
