This is another product in the make up haul that my uncle got me. I’ve already reviewed two eye liner pencils in the MUFE Aqua range, and this time, it’s the lip liner.
The Aqua range is the waterproof version of the regular MUFE make up products, though the shades offered might not be the exact same as the regular products. The product being reviewed here is the Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Liner Pencil in 9C Burgundy.
Name of the Product: Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Liner Pencil 9C Burgundy
Cost: Mine was a gift 🙂 I’m not sure if it’s available on any of the Indian websites. I assume it’s approximately 20$.
• High Pigment Concentration
• Extremely waterproof
• Ultra Long lasting and transferable

My experience of Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Liner Pencil 9C Burgundy:
I haven’t had very nice experiences with lip liners before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one. The pencil is similar to the MUFE eye liner pencils, simple, with a colored cap.Also, it is a standard size pencil which can be easily sharpened.
Directions of use are to first apply lip balm and the MUFE Lip Line Perfector (to prevent feathering). Start by drawing the Cupid’s bow, then the bottom of the lower lip, moving on to the corners and then finishing around the entire lip. Apply lipstick starting from the centre.
They say that this lip liner can be used on the entire mouth and that’s how I tried it first, after applying a lip balm. The pencil feels creamy, glides on smoothly and you can cover the whole mouth in a very short time. The end result doesn’t feel dry either, though if you’re a shiny lipstick lover, you might feel tempted to add on some gloss :-). Otherwise, it’s a perfect matte. You get nice defined lines, which can help in drawing those ‘perfect lips’ on your natural mouth.
First line is a single swipe; the second line is drawn about 3-4 times. So you know how it’ll look when used just as a liner or as a filler. You see, the single swipe itself is highly pigmented.
Coming to the color, when you say Burgundy, you expect a deeper, maroon-ish color, but this is closer to red. Not a bright, traffic stopping red, but a more mellow red. The perfect red for me!! I love, love the color and I’m scared this pencil will finish and then I won’t find it again!
This lip liner is like it says in the product claim – stays on and on and on. On it’s own, with lipstick – anyway. I haven’t tried it in ‘extreme conditions’, but I think it’s good for people whose upper lips tend to sweat a lot. This is also great for those who’d like to eat and drink with abandon without worrying about their liner fading off :-).
The liner comes off with a regular make up remover like Maybelline, without much effort. This is definitely a plus; who wants to keep scrubbing the delicate skin on their lips?
The Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Liner Pencils are available in 20 shades in all.
Ingredients: No ingredient list on the packaging, so this is information from the Make Up For Ever website: Volatile Silicon Oils, Natural antioxidants and without mineral oils, Jojoba wax and Vitamin E
