Make Up For Ever #52L Aqua Eyes Liner ($19.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “blue-green sheen.” It’s a green-tinged teal with a little undertone of blue and a subtle pearled sheen. If you have Urban Decay Covet, this may be too similar; Covet is ever-so-slightly greener and darker, while Tarina Tarantino Spark of Envy (you can see me wearing it here) is very nearly a dupe for this (at a certain angle, #52L appears to have a slightly greener tone, but it’s hard to tell and would, personally, call them 100% dupes). MAC Minted is darker, greener. MAC Float on By is slightly lighter.

This is a new and limited edition shade for summer, which is a bummer, because it’s a truly gorgeous shade, and it’s no wonder–I’m obsessed with Tarina Tarantino’s Spark of Envy, so it was no surprise that the moment I applied this, I was all “Oooh, ahhh,” about the color, but for some, Make Up For Ever is more accessible and easier to purchase.  It’s also a good alternative to the recently discontinued Covet by Urban Decay.

It had really good pigmentation in a single pass, and it was very easy to build it to fully opaque color in one and a half to two passes of the pencil across the lash line. The pencil glided on without tugging or pulling at the lash line, and it was a mix of waxy and creamy so it was easy to apply but still stayed put. It lasted nine hours well on my lash line without smudging.
