Make Up For Ever M22 Matte Majorelle Blue Aqua XL Eye Pencil
Make Up For Ever M22 Matte Majorelle Blue Aqua XL Eye Pencil

Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is supposed to be a “long-wearing,” “waterproof” pencil eyeliner (requires sharpening) with “one swipe color” that will not tug or skip. There is a fair amount of variance between shades with respect to color payoff, texture, wear, and application. They do not, personally, wear well at all on the waterline for me–three to four hours at most and darker shades can get really messy whenever I attempted wearing them on the waterline (they are supposed to “work great in the waterline”). They wear better on the lower lash line, which is about eight hours on average with faint thinning/migration to the outer corner. A lot of the color is intact, and the colors didn’t fade. I found them harder to remove and had to use more makeup remover (on a cotton swab) than average to get them off. I found the texture to be waxier than the prior Aqua Eyes formula for most shades. They were waterproof with respect to actual water, like I could take a shower and not have a smeary mess at the end. I would use some shades again, but it wouldn’t be the first formula I reached for–for me, they’re just not nearly long-wearing or pigmented enough to merit the extra effort for removal.

I’m not sure if it was just my bad luck, but almost every shade’s tip broke off when swatching, which is unusual (usually if I break one, I can fix the pressure to avoid doing so 10 more times!), though I didn’t have any issues with the tips breaking off when applying to my lash line.

Make Up For Ever M22 Matte Majorelle Blue Aqua XL Eye Pencil ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark blue with strong, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque coverage in one stroke, which was buildable to semi-opaque coverage, but it was never fully opaque due to the waxier consistency that seemed to prevent color from building up fully. It didn’t drag or tug on the lash line, and this shade lasted for eight hours on the lower lash line. Ardency Inn Dark Blue (P, $19.00) is brighter (95% similar). L'Oreal Cobalt Blue (250) (P, $8.99) is brighter (95% similar). Sephora My Boyfriend's Jeans (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Lancome Cote d'Azur (P, $23.00) is more shimmery, lighter (80% similar). MAC Royal Wink (LE, $16.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever S20 Satiny Navy Blue Aqua XL Eye Pencil ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a dark, navy blue with cool undertones and a satin sheen. It had medium coverage in one pass, which was buildable to full opacity with two to three layers. The texture was moderately waxy, glided along the lash line without tugging, and lasted for eight hours on me. MAC Deep Blue Sea (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Hyacinth (P, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). Make Up For Ever #3L (P, $19.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Sephora Surfer Babe (P, $10.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Siahi (P, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever I24 Iridescent Blue Aqua XL Eye Pencil ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark blue with cooler undertones and a pearly sheen and very slight sparkle. It had semi-opaque coverage, which was buildable to opaque coverage in one pass. The texture was a little creamier and softer compared to some of the other shades, so it was easier to use and seemed to deposit color better. This shade wore well for eight hours. bareMinerals True Blue (LE, $16.00) is lighter (95% similar). Gucci Beauty Iconic Ottanio (P, $32.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). NARS Abbey Road (P, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Take the Plunge (P, $16.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Sephora Surfer Babe (P, $10.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Abyss (P, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Radium (P, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever M26 Matte Pastel Blue Aqua XL Eye Pencil ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, light-medium sky blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage that was buildable to semi-opaque coverage. The texture was a bit waxier, so it was comfortable to use, but it didn’t deposit color as evenly or as opaquely as marketed. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours.

Make Up For Ever I32 Iridescent Lagoon Blue Aqua XL Eye Pencil ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark, bluish-teal with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen with slight sparkle. It had semi-opaque coverage in one stroke, which I was able to get to mostly opaque coverage with two to three passes. The texture was moderately waxy, glided on well with decent color deposited onto the lower lash line. It lasted for eight hours on me. Tarina Tarantino Spark of Envy (P, $15.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC New Marine (P, $17.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Blue Noon (LE, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Makeup Geek Ocean (P, $9.00) is lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever #52L (LE, $19.00) is warmer (95% similar). Urban Decay Deep End (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Vacancy (LE, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Ody(sea) (62) (P, $25.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever M30 Matte Pastel Green Aqua XL Eye Pencil ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a pop of medium aqua with subtle, warmer undertones and a creamy, matte finish. The consistency was creamier than it was waxy, though it still only had semi-sheer to mostly opaque coverage. When I would go back to try to build-up the color, some of it seemed to push around, rather than set, so I would recommend applying one layer, waiting a bit, and then going back to do a second layer. This shade wore well for eight hours on me. Colour Pop Zulu (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Stila Turquoise (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Zulu (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Mint (P, $9.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever I34 Iridescent Pop Green Aqua XL Eye Pencil ($21.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium, grassy green with warm undertones and a subtle sheen. It had semi-opaque coverage in one pass, which was buildable to opaque coverage after two to three passes. The texture was waxy but didn’t seem to lift color when I went over the same area twice. It wore well for eight hours on my lower lash line. NARS Puerta del Sol (LE, $24.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Indulge Yourself (22) (P, $10.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Sassy Moss (DC, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Sephora Caipirinha Dreamin' (LE, $10.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a powder eyeshadow available in five distinct finishes: Diamond, Iridescent, Matte, Metallic, and Satin. The texture of all finishes, except the Matte finish, are much denser and more like a cream-powder hybrid. I’ve used traditional eyeshadow brushes (like MAC’s 239, a go-to for me) with these and have hadn’t any issues, but for those who have, I would recommend a firmer, flatter synthetic brush (like MAC 242) to maximize payoff and application. The Diamond and Iridescent finishes have sparkle or micro-glitter, and I have found that the majority of shades have little to no fall out over time for me. The Metallic is the richest, smoothest formula out of the five finishes. The Mattes are soft and silky–much smoother and more finely-milled than the brand’s last formula–but these are sometimes sheerer, though buildable, and can be a little dusty or powdery to work with. The Mattes typically apply well and blend out without issue. The Satin finish feels the firmest of the five finishes but is the most blendable and pigmented; some are closer to metallic and others are more like a natural matte on. I get seven to ten hour wear, depending on the shade, across the range. The eyeshadows are larger than standard (0.08 oz. per the packaging). For the most bang for your buck, consider purchasing two ($32.00) or three at once ($46.00) or watch for seasonal releases of palettes (just be careful if you’ve already bought a few–the brand repeats very often).

FORMULA OVERVIEW | Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow ($21.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a powder eyeshadow available in five distinct finishes: Diamond, Iridescent, Matte, Metallic, and Satin. The texture of all finishes, except the Matte finish, are much denser and more like a cream-powder hybrid. I’ve used traditional eyeshadow brushes (like MAC’s 239, a go-to for me) with these and have hadn’t any issues, but for those who have, I would recommend a firmer, flatter synthetic brush (like MAC 242) to maximize payoff and application. The Diamond and Iridescent finishes have sparkle or micro-glitter, and I have found that the majority of shades have little to no fall out over time for me. The Metallic is the richest, smoothest formula out of the five finishes. The Mattes are soft and silky–much smoother and more finely-milled than the brand’s last formula–but these are sometimes sheerer, though buildable, and can be a little dusty or powdery to work with. The Mattes typically apply well and blend out without issue. The Satin finish feels the firmest of the five finishes but is the most blendable and pigmented; some are closer to metallic and others are more like a natural matte on. I get seven to ten hour wear, depending on the shade, across the range. The eyeshadows are larger than standard (0.08 oz. per the packaging). For the most bang for your buck, consider purchasing two ($32.00) or three at once ($46.00) or watch for seasonal releases of palettes (just be careful if you’ve already bought a few–the brand repeats very often).

Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette

Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette
Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette

Make Up For Ever Florals (Vol. 3) Artist Palette ($44.00 for 0.45 oz.) includes nine shades (all of the shades are also available individually in the permanent range). Two things worth noting: there are several repeats in this palette if you already own several of their past releases, and the amount of product in this is less than the last two volumes and $2 more. Oh, and there are, again, no matte shades. It’s such a shame that they’ve continued to repeat shades when they have 200+ shades in their range to choose from (see this sheet for repeats). If you haven’t picked up a lot of the brand’s palettes or singles previously, it IS a good palette overall — pigmented, long-wearing, and easy to use.

ME230 Peacock Blue is a muted, medium-dark blue with “warmer” tones and a frosted sheen. It is still a cool-toned shade, of course! It had good pigmentation, but it was as opaque as my permanent version (or other variations I’ve come across in their palettes), unfortunately. The texture was a little firmer, though still dense and blendable, and ultimately, when applied, it builds up easily and within two layers so the lack of pigmentation wasn’t noticeable. It lasted for eight and a half hours. Too Faced Mint Chip (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). bareMinerals Controversy (LE) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Mystic Hour (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Stila Sapphire (P) is lighter (95% similar). Colour Pop Backseat (P, $5.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar).
