Make Up For Ever Gypsy Aqua Eyes Eyeliner

Make Up For Ever Gypsy Aqua Eyes Eyeliner ($18.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as a “matte dark brown.” Unlike a lot of Make Up For Ever products, it’s limited edition–and it has a name, not a number! The Aqua Eyes formula is supposed to be waterproof, smudge-proof, fade-proof, and provide intense color. I like the range for its durability, as it really does last all day for me, and the large variety of colors available.

Gypsy is a warm, red-toned medium-dark brown with a matte finish. It’s fairly opaque in one pass. Chanel Brun-Teak is similar but less red-toned. MAC Brownborder is also similar. Urban Decay Corrupt is browner with less red. Tarina Tarantino Locket Book is warmer, more golden, less red. Tarina Tarantino Puppeteer is closer but shimmery and not as dark.

The texture of Gypsy was soft, lightly creamy, and had a good waxiness that enabled it to glide across the lash line without tugging.  Those with oilier eyelids sometimes prefer Aqua Eyes because of the drier texture, which somehow manages to stay on that fine line between creamy and dry.  I’ve had excellent experiences with Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Eyes formula; it doesn’t smudge, fade, or migrate during the day, and it wears a solid eight hours or longer on me.
