Just in time for summer, Make Up For Ever is launching the Aqua XL Eye Pencil. The Aqua XL pencil is an enhanced version of the existing Make Up For Ever Aqua Eye Pencil. To kick up the volume even more, MAKE UP FOR EVER is partnering with Charli XCX.
The Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eye Pencils come in 20 shades and 5 finishes: Matte, Diamond, Satin, Iridescent and Metallic. The formula has been updated from the original Aqua Eye Pencils to apply more smoothly, and more intense pigments give longer-lasting wear.
I was sent samples of the new Aqua XL Eye Pencil Waterproof Eye Pencils to preview. I love the new vibrant colors, and overall think these will be great for summer. The pigmentation is definitely good, particularly with the darker shades. In terms of texture, the formula is soft, so if you’re looking for very precise eyelining (like a cat-eye), this pencil might not be the best choice. For a soft, smudged, smoky eye look? Definitely! While I got good wear, I found it was even better when I used a primer.
My favorite must-have shade for summer is Aqua XL M-30; matte pastel green. Gorgeous with golds, lilac or any neutral shade. Love! The strength of the Aqua XL Eye Pencil is the varied mix of colors and finishes.
