|Make Up For Ever - MUFE Aqua XL Waterproof Eyeliner Pencils ($21 each) at Sephora|
Waterproof eyeliner pencils are among my most-reached-for makeup products, especially in the summers when I want to use minimal products yet get a long-lasting makeup look that stands up to the heat (and on my oily eyelids). For the longest time, the Urban Decay eyeliner pencils have been the only ones that have worked for me, but a lot of brands now have quite good waterproof eyeliners. MUFE recently came out with their version - Makeup For Ever Aqua XL Waterproof Eye Pencils. Available in 20 shades, these pencils have a creamy formula with intense color payoff. There are quite a few colors in this range including some lovely neutrals (browns), bright pastel shades, as well as rich blues and blacks. Scroll on for swatches.
MUFE claims these waterproof Aqua XL eyeliner pencils are smudge, crease, and fade resistant - until one removes them, presumably at the end of the day. I have not used these on my eyes, but I did need to use a waterproof eye makeup remover (Sephora Waterproof Eye Makeup Remover) to remove the swatches off the back of my hand, so I assume they are reasonably long lasting. The pencils feel quite creamy and smooth, and the colors are quite intense with a single swipe. I love the colors in this range - give me a good black liner and a couple of browns and I will sing praises - but there's a good mix of some fun colors in there including yellows, blues, and greens. Do give these a try if you are on the lookout for a waterproof eyeliner to get you through the summer (and the months beyond).
