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). Kat Von D Poe (P, $18.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Sephora Sea If I Care (P, $14.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Flourish Me Bold (LE, $18.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Sephora My Boyfriend's Jeans (P, $10.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Push (P, $22.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (85% similar). NARS Most Wanted (LE, $24.00) is lighter (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Out of the Blue (P, $25.00) is lighter, warmer (85% 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). Urban Decay Chaos (P, $20.00) is lighter (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). Colour Pop Zulu (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Stila Turquoise (P, $22.00) is warmer (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.

Makeup Geek Full Spectrum Eyeliners (Part 2)

Makeup Geek Cobalt Full Spectrum Eyeliner
Makeup Geek Cobalt Full Spectrum Eyeliner

Makeup Geek Full Spectrum Eyeliner ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is supposed to be an “ultra creamy” and “ultra pigmented.” They have a smoother, more waxy consistency, so they skim across the skin without tugging or dragging, but the pigmentation varies a lot from shade to shade, though it fell between semi-sheer to semi-opaque in one stroke. They weren’t particularly buildable, as they seemed to push the color around rather than really gradually build it up. They are really, really soft, so use less pressure than you think or else chunks of the eyeliner will break off. They wore between six and seven hours on me before migrating. Their biggest upside is comfort; very creamy and soft, but the downside is weaker pigmentation and wear. As an aside, the price point seems a little high for the brand, given that eyeliners and eyeshadows are (usually) similarly priced, but these are 50% more expensive than the eyeshadows.

Makeup Geek Cobalt Full Spectrum Eyeliner ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark periwinkle blue with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-sheer coverage in one pass, which was buildable to semi-opaque (somewhat uneven) coverage after going back and forth multiple times. There was a very faded quality about it once applied to the skin. It lasted for six hours on me. NARS Most Wanted (LE, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). Sephora Sea If I Care (P, $14.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Royal Wink (LE, $16.00) is darker (85% similar). Urban Decay Chaos (P, $20.00) is darker (85% similar). Kat Von D Nietzsche (P, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar). L'Oreal Cobalt Blue (250) (P, $8.99) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Mint Full Spectrum Eyeliner ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a light-medium, mint green with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff in one stroke, which was buildable. The color applied evenly and smoothly on the lash line without tugging. This shade wore for seven hours before fading noticeably. Stila Turquoise (P, $22.00) is brighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever M30 Matte Pastel Green (P, $21.00) is cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Zulu (P, $5.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). Colour Pop Zulu (P, $6.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). NARS Barrow Street (P, $24.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Ocean Full Spectrum Eyeliner ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium-dark, bluish teal with a pearly sheen. It was the only shade with a pearly finish in the range. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one stroke, which was hard to layer/build as it would thicken over some areas and pull color away in others, leaving behind an uneven result. The color seeped into the creases underneath my eyes (like it bled!) after six hours of wear. Make Up For Ever I32 Iridescent Lagoon Green (P, $21.00) is darker (95% similar). Tarina Tarantino Spark of Envy (P, $15.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). MAC New Marine (P, $17.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever #52L (LE, $19.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Sephora Fairytale (P, $10.00) is darker (90% similar). Lancome Paradis (P, $23.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Deep End (P, $22.00) is warmer (90% similar). Urban Decay Vacancy (LE, $20.00) is brighter, cooler (90% similar). L'Oreal True Teal (260) (P, $8.99) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Ody(sea) (62) (P, $25.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Stila Violet (P, $22.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Piggy Bank (DC, $5.00) is darker, brighter, cooler (80% similar). Colour Pop Piggy Bank (DC, $6.00) is darker, brighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Royal Full Spectrum Eyeliner ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a subdued, medium-dark purple with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-sheer color payoff in one stroke, which was hard to layer/build-up as it tended to look uneven as the creamier consistency would pull the initial layer at times. This shade lasted for six hours. MAC Image Conscious (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Plushie (P, $20.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Make Up For Ever M80 Matte Plum (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer, better quality (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

MAC Lion Babe Liquidlast Eyeliner

MAC Lion Babe Liquidlast Liner
MAC Lion Babe Liquidlast Liner

MAC Lion Babe Liquidlast Liner ($21.00 for 0.084 fl. oz.) is described as a “shimmering gold.” It’s a bright, medium-dark coppery gold with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. MAC Cockiness (LE, ) is darker, less pigmented (90% similar). MAC Copperthorn (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Liquidlast Liner formula is supposed to have “long-lasting wear with a non-smudge, non-flake” formula. It was richly pigmented with a thin consistency that spread easily but sometimes looked a little streaky, so I preferred using it with two layers to ensure smooth, even color. The brush is thin and fine, so it can be used for more precise lines as well as for building-up to thicker lines. The Liquidlast formula is very, very long-wearing–it basically doesn’t budge until it’s time to remove it. I had it on for over twelve hours, and it didn’t budge, fade, or flake. This shade will be released no April 28th as an online exclusive to maccosmetics.com.

Makeup Geek Nude Full Spectrum Eyeliner ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a light beige with warm undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in one pass, while the consistency was creamy and comfortable to apply. This shade wore for seven hours on me. LORAC Nude (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Rue Bonaparte (P, $24.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Spice Full Spectrum Eyeliner ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in one stroke, while the creamy texture wasn’t too wet or too dry, so it glided on well and lasted for seven and a half hours. This was a more unique shade. Urban Decay Faint (LE, $20.00) is lighter (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Espresso Full Spectrum Eyeliner ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a dark, red-toned brown with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, natural finish–not quite matte but not really shimmery either. It had semi-opaque color payoff in one stroke, and this shade had a more emollient, wetter texture as it glided on, which made it prone to migrating as it was drying down. This was one where I didn’t have much success with longevity, as it had migrated noticeably after five hours of wear. Marc Jacobs Beauty (Earth)quake (P, $25.00) is darker (95% similar). Christian Louboutin Beaute Zoulou (P, $40.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Chocolate (LE, $24.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Call Me (P, $5.00) is less glossy (90% similar). MAC Coffee (P, $16.00) is warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever #25L (P, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar).

Urban Decay Bourbon (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Seasonally Spicy (LE, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). MAC Brown Border (P, $16.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Buxom Here's My Number (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Stila Spice (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Obsidian Full Spectrum Eyeliner ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a medium black with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had so-so pigmentation in one pass, which was buildable to mostly opaque coverage. For a black eyeliner, in particular, I was surprised it was richer and smoother applied. This shade lasted for seven hours on me. MAC Flourish Me Deep (LE, $18.00)(100% similar). Hourglass Obsidian (P, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Sephora All Black Everything (P, $14.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Black Black (P, $16.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Black Walnut (P, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar).

Too Faced Perfect Black (P, $18.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Perversion (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). Sephora Clubbing Stilettos (P, $10.00) is darker (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Makeup Geek Plumeria Full Spectrum Eyeliner ($9.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a deep red with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in one pass with a slightly drier texture that tended to bunch up on itself rather than build up in color. The color started to migrate noticeably after six and a half hours of wear. This was the most unique shade in the brand’s range. Marc Jacobs Beauty Fine(wine) (P, $25.00) is cooler (95% similar). Stila Deep Fuchsia (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop HoneyDude Creme Gel Liner
ColourPop HoneyDude Creme Gel Liner

ColourPop Honeydude Creme Gel Liner ($6.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as a “creamy warm nude.” It’s a light peachy-beige with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, and it adhered well to both the waterline and lower lash line. It wore well for seven hours on the waterline, nine hours on the lower lash line. MAC Risque (P, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Kat Von D Swanly (P, $18.00)(90% similar). LORAC Nude (P, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Walk of Shame (P, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). NARS Rue Bonaparte (P, $24.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

ColourPop Teaspoon Creme Gel Liner ($6.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as an “intense emerald green.” It’s a muted, medium-dark green with cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff in a single pass, which may have been due to the texture that felt a little drier compared to other shades I’ve tried in this formula. It builds up fairly well, so opaque coverage is possible. The color lasted for eight hours on me. Colour Pop Teaspoon (LE, $6.00) is brighter (95% similar). Kat Von D Lemmy (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Buxom Ring My Bell (P, $17.00) is darker (85% similar).
