How are you doing today? I am so excited for this New Year even though I believe that it’s just a number changed in calendar as our life, goals and struggles are still the same. But it does give us a chance to look back, count our blessings and be thankful for what we have! IMBB surely holds a special mention like always. Not to forget I made my wonderful trip to India this year meeting my parents and friends while Jomol surprised me with her beautiful gift gestures and dearest Rati made me proud by her appearance in person. It was really a memorable day and event of my life to meet you Rati. Anyways I am also here to share another lip liner review. Let’s read more about this Make Up For Ever (MUFE) lipliner!

What it does:
With an extensive array of colors, Aqua Lip Waterproof Lipliner Pencils feature a creamy, long-lasting, and waterproof formula for any desired lip look. They will not smudge, feather, or fade, and the ultra-creamy formula glides on vitamin E and jojoba wax, making it easy to line and define lips for the perfect look. From nude to pop colors, these liners are ideal for wearing alone or as a base for any lip color. Create the illusion of a fuller, plumper lip, or line and define using a deeper shade to contour.
My Experience with Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil – 19C Pomegranate Pink:
The liner comes in a sleek, slender sharpenable pencil packaging with a safety cap. Personally I prefer retractable packaging but considering the fact that sharpenable pencils save product from drying, it is worth trying it.
Coming over my shade “19C pomegranate pink”, it is a blue-based pink liner suitable for every fair/medium skin tone beauty. This is by far the most gorgeous shade of pink I have ever tried which instantly amplifies my skin tone and comes up so beautifully on my pale skin. It matches up beautifully with all berry/pomegranate pinks in my stash.
However, after trying Nars velvet lip liners, I feel the perfection bar is raised up high and these MUFE liners are yet to cross the bar according to me. The reason is its texture which seems slight dry as it tugs a bit while wearing on lips apart from giving slight waxy-matte finish. It is neither drying nor hydrating.
However, I like the fact that it smartly forgives minor flaws and dryness of my lips being a matte liner as it does not sit or settle in lip lines. But it is slight tricky to define our lips with neatness because of its slight waxy texture though it is pigmented enough to give buildable color pay off which makes it good if not better for lining, filling the lips.
The wear time is quite impressive as it stays on for good 5+ hours increasing the longevity of my creamy/satin lip colors glosses thereby leaving slight dry lips by end of day, but it is totally fine. I feel this particular formula will work best for normal-dry lips including beauties with pigmented lips.
It gives medium to full coverage which will certainly conceal those deep pigmented lips apart from increasing the wear time of our lip makeup as well as preventing bleeding and/or feathering around lips. Overall comparing it to my other lip liners like Sephora lip liner to go, L’oreal lip liner and Nars velvet lip liner, I feel that MUFE surely comes next to Nars velvet liner in terms of performance, finish and wear time. It definitely works better than Sephora lip liner but it is pretty closer to my L’oreal lip liners and Nars still stands alone as the winner in terms of formula and finish.
Pros of Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil – 19C Pomegranate Pink:
• Such a gorgeous blue-based pink liner.
• It is intensely pigmented to conceal minor to major flaws.
• It does not sit on top of dry patches.
• It does not settle in lip crevices or lip lines as well.
• It definitely helps with transferring and bleeding issues of my creamy lip colors/glosses up to good extent.
• It stays on for good 5+ hours leaving behind a pink stain on lips after a heavy meal.
• Quite user-friendly, travel- friendly packaging.
Cons of Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil – 19C Pomegranate Pink:
• The formula seems bit tricky for dry parched lips.
• It does not give a smooth finish like Nars velvet lip liners.
• It seems bit waxy while defining lips.
• Sharpening pencil leads to wastage of this pricy liner.
IMBB Rating: 4.4/5
Would I Recommend Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Waterproof Lip Liner Pencil – 19C Pomegranate Pink?
Well honestly, I am only fan of this gorgeous pink shade and sadly I could not get it in other brands; hence I can overlook all these cons for this shade. However, my first preference will always be Nars velvet liner because MUFE liner seems a bit drying.
