Makeup Forever Aqua XL Eye Pencil is the new range of eye liners that replaced their Aqua Eyes range. It’s been quite some time since I last used Makeup Forever’s eye liners. I remembered the Aqua Eyes range to be dry, long lasting and smudge-proof. Let’s see how the new range fairs~😄

Here’s a before/after photo of me using the Makeup Forever Aqua XL Eye Pencil to draw my eyeliner!

 

A simple eyeliner can do so much! I look more awake after 😹

I do not like that it tugs my lids when I am drawing the eyeliner across my eye lid. This causes some missed out spaces in between the line. It took quite a few strokes to fill up the spaces.

As you can see, the eyeliner has smudged to my lower eyelids after a day. Not super bad but visible, especially on the outer corner of my eyes. The eyeliner I drew still looks pigmented despite the smudge.

In conclusion, I still prefer using liquid eyeliner like Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner and Kat Von D Tattoo Liner 😻

Tips:
* Set lower eyelid area with excess powder, wait around 1 minute, and dust off the excess. This prevents eye area from getting oily, thus, smudging eyeliner
* Use eye primer on your upper eye lids to make your eye makeup more long lasting and to allow it to stay put better
