O.M.G. – Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner in #14

This is true love:

Heehee, the last squinty one is kind of funny looking, but I was trying my hardest to capture the amazingness of this liner and it is VERY hard, with a bum camera and all on my own no less!  I hope you can get the idea though.  I suggest clicking on the photos to get a better view (and a scary huge shot of my eye, haha).  It’s basically a charcoal liner with beautiful multicolored shimmer – green, pink, gold, you name it!  If I hadn’t just received it yesterday from Sephora, and if it wasn’t the beginning of the month, I’d say this is my fave product of the month, hands down.  Ahhhhh it’s just so amazing!!  This is probably one of the most exciting, rewarding products I’ve bought in AGES…truly, I’m ecstatic!!  Not only is it super beautiful, but because the shimmer isn’t over-the-top, I can wear this anywhere!  It gives my eyes awesome sparkle, and you can notice it, but it doesn’t look out of place if restraint is required, like at work.  I wore it today just as you see in the photos and I felt like a star haha.  It makes me so happy :)

Sephora’s description says: “Rich in polymers, this superior eyeliner offers an impeccable hold that guarantees water-, tear-, and smudge-proof color. Its ergonomic, foam-tip applicator is designed to resemble a makeup brush handle for the quickest, easiest, and most accurate application.”  They got that right!  This applies like a dream, by far one of the easiest liquid liners I’ve used to date.  Absolutely no hardship whatsoever.  Me likey.

One thing to note – the formula is a bit on the thin side, so I recommend either layering coats to get it darker (as I did in the photos), or wearing a dark liner first and then applying over top.  It just makes it deeper as the formula is a touch sheer.  Easy fix!  Also of note is that, as previously stated, these are waterproof.  As with my other Aqua Liner (#5), this does stay put if splashed with water, but when wet and rubbed hard, it can pill off a bit.  As long as you’re careful, it shouldn’t budge.

Absolutely and utterly head over heels.  There’s nothing else to say!

On that note – I hope everyone has a lovely weekend!  I’m headed to PEI shortly until Sunday, should be great!

      @ Eugenia: Thank you!! I am terrible at taking photos period, but I’m waiting on a macro lense as a belated birthday gift, and I hope that makes a difference. I’m wearing Clinique’s High Impact mascara, my fave stand-by. Remember, my hair is insanely curly, so while I don’t have a ton of lash length, I have major curl, so it’s not all mascara haha.
      @ Loodie: You are hilarious. Thanks doll :P

    You have beautiful eyes! I haven’t seen one bad review about these liners and most of them are sold out when I look at them in Sephora. I have asymmetrically hooded eyes that make liners difficult to pull off so I must live vicariously through you and other enjoyers of this product. I’d be sold if I wore liners more often!

      @ Liz: Thank you!! I was so excited for this liner, I sort of whipped off the photos quick and wondered if I looked a bit scary…glad to know that wasn’t the case :) I am going to have to take a look at these ‘asymmetrically hooded eyes’ you keep mentioning – I think you might be being hard on yourself!
      @ productdoctor(Nisha?): You would fall in love with this liner, it’s so versatile and pretty! I highly recommend any of the liners, they all look fantastic!
