Make Up For Ever Eyeliner Series

July 24, 2015

I have finally stayed at my new place! Though we have to fix some things here and there but at least my room is 80% done lol So with all the help of my new room, new lighting tool, and my camera that I hardly touch ever since I purchased it this year, I am back with new review. And I hope the quality is so HQ that you guys love and find eyegasm here. To be honest, I even pat myself on the back for finally reaching the picture quality that I want for product review post :x

Today I am going to review one of my favorite western brands, Make Up For Ever, for its black eyeliner. I freaking need black eyeliner in my life and most of the time I trust myself with japanese brands for this stuff, but I run out of my Dolly Wink and in need of having a new one. Gratefully when I was thinking of buying one, I was given a whole set of MUFE eyeliners. Joyful bells rang and I quickly played with it to find my most desired eyeliner from this amazing brand

Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner
Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner Series is a waterproof based liquid eyeliner that can resist any water even when you're swimming. They come in many colors but for this black eyeliner comparison, I use no 13 in black. The tip itself is pretty stiff but not as hard as some drugstore eyeliners. The black color is pretty intense and it gives a precise clean and sharp line without any smudge. It is super easy to remove and last long

Wore it thorough the day and even had it when I was showering, it didnt move a bit from my skin. Contrary to its longevity power to stay all day long, cleaning it is pretty easy so I love every single second wearing this one. Although since the tip is not that pointy, it is quite tricky to get a sharp wing end or very thin line

SCORE = 9 / 10
Recommended for = Anyone who wants to go swimming / beach, Anyone who wants a REAL waterproof eyeliner [perfect for humid country]

Make Up For Ever Graphic Liner

The graphic liner brush is very fine pen brush type eyeliner that can create very precise and sharp line. However my eyes become a mess after a long day as it is not waterproof, neither it's oilproof. The liner itself when you zoom it up is easily spread around skin though, giving untidy look for a close up picture [Which you can check on the swatch picture on the end of the post]

However the brush makes the application easier for getting thin or thick line according the pressure given. Easily smudged and gives my eyes panda look after long hours of usage with a few yawns, so a little precaution is neeeded. A little bit difficult to be removed as well :<

SCORE = 5 / 10
Recommended for = Beginner that wants to have easy eyeliner and control, Anyone who wants a precise winged eyeliner

Make Up For Ever Ink Liner
This is MUFE normal liquid eyeliner. Aqua Liner is for water-resistant and Graphic Liner is for pen-type brush, this one is just any other liquid eyeliner only with different finish that I have never experienced so far as long as I can remember. Like its name, Ink Liner, it gives matte finish like ink on the paper. Not as smudgy as Graphic Liner but it still smears a little on my outer corner. The longevity is nice but it's not easy to be removed

SCORE = 8 / 10
Recommended for = Anyone who wants a matte finish on their eyeliner, 

Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes

An absolute perfection. I love to combine this along with the Aqua Liner. For pencil liner I usually draw it for my bottom eyes on the outer corner to connect with the top liner. Aqua Eyes glides so smooth and the color is not as intense as some liners but the quality is the top of its class. It stays amazing on my eyes, leaving no trace of smudge or crack thorough the day

SCORE = 9 / 10
Recommended for = Anyone who wants a non-smudging eyeliner underneath your eyes thorough the day, anyone who's going to swim

Make Up For Ever Artist Liner

The eyeliner glides soooo smooth and the color is pretty intense. This Artist Liner is a retractable pencil liner that I would recommend for tightlining your eyes, super convenient to use because we dont have to resharpen it every other time. It is not waterproof and so it smears a little under my eyes but not as bad as Graphic Liner. It is also quite easy to clean off

SCORE = 8 / 10
Recommended for = Anyone who is too lazy to sharpen their pencil eyeliner everytime

Make Up For Ever Crayon Kohl

I use this one for my waterline and it is very creamy and smooth, it gives intense color without having to put pressure or reapplication. It is also very easy for me to use it for smokey effect due to its creamy texture, I just need to use light hand when brushing it with eyeshadow brush and it instantly gives me amazing smokey effect. However upside down is it smears easily on hot places like any other pencil eyeliners I have tried, however it is still tolerable and not giving me total panda eyes, though I still have to check from time to time

SCORE = 7 / 10
Recommended for = Anyone who wants to smudge their eyeliner for smokey effect

Make Up For Ever Aqua Black

It clearly says a "creme eye shadow" instead of a gel liner, but I received it as a part of their eyeliner collection so I will call this the gel liner. The consistency of this product is quite intense and buildable, super creamy and easy to use. It stays on my lid quite good. However the black color is not as strong as their liquid liner series
This is a good base for smokey look or any dark eye shadow as it will help creating more pop color however I dont see the urge to use it more than MUFE other eyeliners that I have tried

SCORE = 7 / 10
Recommended for = Anyone who wants a matte finish on their eyeliner, 

From left to right :
Aqua Liner, Graphic Liner, Ink Liner, Aqua Eyes, Artist Liner, Crayon Kohl, Aqua Black

Here are the swatches of the eyeliners. 3 liquid eyeliners, 3 pencil eyeliners, and 1 gel liner

If you see closely, you can tell that the Graphic Liner has strongest intensity and nice vinyl finish, also very fine & sharp wing compared to the other 2 liquid liners. However major fault is its spreading line on the outer area of the line. Compared to that, Aqua Liner is weaker in terms of the result but it has neater line than Graphic Liner. Aqua Liner is also much more resistant among water and sweat and oil and it's the best waterproof eyeliner imo. However the finish of Ink Liner is exactly like Ink, very matte and ink-finished like. I have never had this kind of finish before and I LOVE the result as it doesnt reflect any shine

For the pencil eyeliner, Aqua Eyes and Crayon Kohl pigmentation is lower than Artist Liner. However Aqua Eyes is resistant as well against water, which is crucial for any pencil liner that is often smeared and giving panda eyes. Artist Liner is so smooth, creamier than UD Zero Pencil that I love, and better cos it comes in retractable mode.

Among the liquid liners I LOVE Aqua liner a lot for daily basis as it stays perfectly on me, but for photoshoot , I prefer having Ink Liner because of its matte finish that looks amazing on camera as it compliments my shimmery eye shadow

Artist Liner wins in pencil eyeliner category because I dont have to resharpen it everytime and it glides amazingly smooth; besides, the color is so intense. Though I would still wear the Aqua Eyes the most in Indonesia because it stays wonderful on me

I really recommend Aqua Series from my experience for anyone living in Indonesia or tropical country. It's the best invention for eyeliner so far, I am too used to cheated by advertisement saying "waterproof make up" when in fact it was a total disaster
I saw my fav youtuber Sasaki Asahi used MUFE Aqua Series too on its waterproof make up and I did believe on her. Turn out when I try it by myself, it gives me the result that I expect

So this are all the black eyeliners provided by MUFE so far and though some have impressed me, some are quite aren't. I guess that's why they have a few selections, to have people find the perfect match eyeliner for their own. For me I would be relying myself the most with Aqua Liner like I said, how about you guys?

Which eyeliner suits you the most and have you ever tried it?

  3. The Aqua Liner looks very promising
    But, does it have a tattoo-like finish? Like it can peeled-off or it will drawn like the pen type?
    Because my 2 other liquid liners have the same result and it will crack and crumble down around my eyes
