MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL

What It Is: There are some webisms I’m more prone to use than others – and one of my fave has to be ‘HERE FOR THIS’, which is exactly what I am when it comes to MAKE UP FOR EVER’s new line of eye pencils, Aqua XL. Launched in tandem with a fresh new partnership with Charli XCX, these stunning eyeliners are making waves on multiple fronts.

First, you’ve got the incredible colour range. Liner – as you can see in the image of Charli XCX above – doesn’t have to be limited to a smudge of black. You can layer liners and use them as long-lasting shadows, or contrast them from your top to your bottom lid, or even create a wrist tattoo, like in the image above. The new Aqua XL line not only comes in a range of 20 hues from violet to bronze to blue to yes, black, the liners also come in five different finishes – Matte, Diamond, Satin, Iridescent, Metallic – to totally transform your look. I’ve had the chance to play around with the liners over the last bit, and the different finishes may be my favourite part – I especially love the unique micro-glitter of the Diamond liners.

Aqua XL Waterproof

Like all MAKE UP FOR EVER products, creator Dany Sanz and her team are all about innovating. So these eyeliners do more than deliver highly pigmented colour and buttery smooth application. They’re also designed to withstand tough environments – whether you’re swimming at the beach or crying tears at your best friends’ wedding or sweating up a storm at the club. Plus they’ve got unique ingredients, like mango butter to provide moisture, crystal copolymer gels to boost colour saturation, and emollient oil for hyper smooth application. It’s the must-have beauty product this summer my friends!

Who It’s For: Your bridesmaids, to complement their individual dresses and styles. Your sibling, to finally bring out those hidden tones in her eyes. Your sporty friend, so she can look glam no matter how hard she’s working it.

What It Costs: Each eyeliner costs $25 – the results are so worth it!

Where It’s At: Nab ’em all at Sephora online and in-stores or use their store locater on their site.
