Make Up For Ever #3L Aqua Eyes Liner

Summer-proof Your Eye Makeup with Make Up For Ever #3L Aqua Eyes

Make Up For Ever #3L Aqua Eyes Liner ($17.00) is a dark, navy blue with lighter, twilight blue shimmer.  It’s smooth and has a soft sheen.  I like wearing this particular navy shade with other blues, greens, golds, and even blue-toned purples.

I’ve reviewed several shades of Aqua Eyes, so if you’ve read those, much of the rest of this review is going to sound a bit redundant… but for those who haven’t read my previous Aqua Eyes’ reviews, this is for you!

Aqua Eyes have a really brilliant formula that’s budge-proof, smudge-proof, and water-resistant.  They’re excellent for those looking for long-wearing eyeliners that won’t migrate and fade throughout the day.  I particularly like them during the summer when I know I’ll be spending quite a bit of time outdoors, because I don’t have to worry about my eyeliner sweating all over the place.  The color range is tremendous with twenty-five shades to choose from, too, which is convenient–if you find you love this formula, you don’t have to look elsewhere for the shade you want.

They’re not as creamy or soft as Urban Decay’s 24/7 Eyeliners, but they’re not hard on the eyes, either; they’re just not quite as soft, and some may prefer that for getting more precision in their looks.

    I just wanna say how much I love this site! Everytime I think “Hmm, I wonder if there are any swatches/reviews for you have it! Damn girl, do you ever sleep? LOL! appreciate your hard work ♥

  2. How does this compare to the Mac eyeliner you just reviewed?

  3. It doesn’t look as vibrant in the swatch as the pencil itself, so would probably pass on it, if it was available here. :) I have the blue L’Oreal HIP liner that is really vibrant, also Boots No 7’s one, and Binge from Urban Decay, so I’m set for blue liners anyway. :)

    The color reminds me of MAC’s pearlglide eyeliner in Fly by Bleu…

  5. It looks gorgeous in the photo! I want to test this color on my own skin for pigmentation, but i’ve been wanting a navy eyeliner with sheen lately…. Hmmm.

    It’s my absolute fav from MUFE! The color is so beautiful and really makes my dark brown eyes pop

  7. Mara

    Oooooh. Do you think this is close to MAC’s Fly-By-Blu? Do you know of any good dupes for MAC’s Fly-By-Bly? Thanks :)

    Love the formula, but I don’t like that particular blue. A little too dark for my tastes, and too cool.

  9. Andrea

  10. Paige

    Omg thats gorgeous. Where is it from???
    Need it despratly! going to wedding and its a blue wedding so!

  11. Kelsey

    it is almost identical to deep truth es by MAC, so if you like setting liners with shadows, then there you go. 😛

    Hi Christine,

    how would you compare this shade and quality to Dolce & Gabbana’s Blue Intense Eyeliner?

  13. anonymous

    love this shade, not too dramatic, fun but nothing crazy

  14. Bella

    Do you like this MUFE eyeliner or Chanel’s Marine eyeliner better? Both are beautiful!

  15. Do you know if the eyeliner sets sold at sephora are the same quality? I bought the set and noticed fall out using this color! I am hoping it was user error (?) and not a lower quality issue….I am going to test out the other colors….
