Review of Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Purple 11L by AMSD
I've been in search of a replacement for MAC Icon Eyes which I have been a miser in using for YEARS now as I've been afraid to run out before I find a backup (I think it was discontinued many, many years ago, too bad!) and finally found something v close with this. PLUS it's waterproof! Color is vibrant but not tacky; unlike Icon Eyes it has a *wee* bit of sheen/blue undertone. Zero red in there, which is perfect for me. Makes my brown eyes pop.
Without primer it is indeed waterproof & lasts for a long time but does begin to migrate afer 6-8 hours. With primer (I use either UD or Tarte) lasts until you take it off. Color intensity fades just a tad over time. I tried this head-to-head with Stila's Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Purple Tang and this liner had better color and far better quality and lasting power. A keeper!
