Very recently Make Up For Ever released their new liquid eyeliners, the Aqua Liners. I was so excited by the Iridescent fuchsia that I had to pick that up, as well as the Diamond Black Purple, to give them a try.

Does it live up to its claims?
Yes! I tested the wear on these two liners and they lasted 24 hours through tears and sweating and sleep. I found the colors to be gorgeous and bright. The foam applicator was actually pretty easy to use to apply the liner, though I did find the handle a bit longer than I normally like. Once you apply these colors and they dry, they’re not going to move. You can rub at them or use water and it’s not going to move until you get the makeup remover. These didn’t irritate my eyes at all, even though I did sleep in them to see how they’d last.
The tip is fine so you can make very thin lines, thick lines, or very thick lines. The fuchsia is amazingly pigmented, especially when I compare it to other pink liners I have. The Diamond Black Purple has gorgeous sparkle in it and I really like that finish.
Would I purchase again?
Yes. Though they’re more expensive than I like to pay, the color payoff, formula and wear make them very nice. The other colors I’m interested in are 4, 5, 6, 10 and 11. Yeah, I really like this formula! I’ll be watching for a sale at Sephora to pick up more of these colors.
