  • Chanel Marine Long-Lasting Eyeliner is a deep navy blue with a black-blue base and silver shimmer. (Review)

Thoughts

DUPE ALERT! It appears that Dolce & Gabbana #8 Eyeliner and Make Up For Ever #3L Aqua Eyes are rather similar — possibly just the slightest difference in blue-ness.

DUPE ALERT!Both Chanel Marine Long-Lasting Eyeliner and tokidoki Skeletro Glitter Eyeliner are not far behind, just slightly darker and with a stronger blacker base, but the two themselves are quite similar. Skeletro has more glitter (whereas Marine has shimmer).

Formula/Wear: I have not tested Givenchy Magic Khol, so I cannot attest to its wear. YSL Eyeliners don’t seem to last all day on me, and Dolce & Gabbana can be hit or miss, but this particular shade lasted through a yoga session (and all day). tokidoki’s Glitter Eyeliners can be scratchy on the lash line because of the size of the glitter particles but wear fine otherwise.

See more swatches!

    thank you so much for these swatches! i’ve been looking for a midnight blue eyeliner and i think MUFE #3 might be it! oh also, will you be reviewing nars sheer glow foundation? Thanks!

    I WAS WAITING FOR THE BLUES!!! THANX SO MUCH CHRISTINE! =)

    Yay, I love dark blue liners because they’re a classy, but fun way to bring out brown eyes. I wear Urban Decay’s Binge as much as I can! I like MAC’s Petrol Blue, but that’s limited edition (still available, though). The Dolce & Gabbana and MUFE #3L are gorgeous.

    LM cake e/l in Bleu Marine is my fav & HG!!! I do wear MAC Prussian for some occasions, and MAC Waveline f/l for a lighter shade

    I haven’t had any of the other color liners you have featured – none of my BB gel e/l’s, LM cake e/l’s, MAC Powerpoints e/p, and LM kohls!!

  5. I love this! Thank you. As a professional Make Up Artist I love seeing all of these blue liners side by side to compare. I really love Urban Decay 24/7 liners because they stay put really well. And I love to use blue liner on the inside of the eye to help brighten the white of the eye instead of black liner sometimes.

  7. Thanks for doing this! Blue eyeliner is my absolute fave. And it looks like I’ll be adding a Make Up For Ever liner to my blue-liner collection soon. :P

    Nice! Thanks for these! Does anyone know how Stila Kajal in Sapphire compares to these?

    • Jody

      Great question Preeti — I’m wondering the same thing…….specifically Stila Sapphire vs. MAC Petrol Blue.
