MAKE UP FOREVER and CHARLI XCX make daring color magic with the new MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Eye Pencils.
MAKE UP FOR EVER AQUA XL Eye Pencils ($21 for 0.04 OZ) are an artistic collection of ultra-long-lasting eye pencils that deliver eye-popping color that stays put. MAKE UP FOR EVER collaborated with pop star Charli XCX to release 20 outstanding AQUA XL Eye pencils that are sure to deliver vivid shades across all skin tones. Due to her artistic, bold and energetic stage presence, MAKE UP FOR EVER sought out Charli XCX to exemplify the creative spirit of the AQUA XL Collection. These new eye pencils come in five different finishes:
These highly pigmented eye pencils apply ultra soft and smooth without streaking. With a full range of colors from white to jet black, the colors held on for hours and did not budge with regular soap and water (a makeup remover wipe did the trick to avoid tugging on the skin). I find that they can be blended but you just have to work VERY quickly before they dry.
To test the waterproof theory, I took a trip to a popular beach on New Providence Island in The Bahamas called Goodman’s Bay. I decided to dip my arm filled with the AQUA Pencils into the crystal clear blue waters, submerging them for about 10 seconds. Once I lifted my hands from the incoming waves, not a smudge on any of the colors could be found. I rubbed my fingers along the vibrant shades and each one stayed in place. The vivid colors just exuded radiance in the Bahamian sunshine and did not fade under such harsh conditions.
Additionally, the MAKE UP FOR EVER AQUA XL Eye pencils feature an exclusive, extra-long (where the XL comes in) lasting formula that provides the following benefits:
- XL Performance: A revolutionary dry oil locks in the color and creates water resistance, resulting in a guarantee of smudge-proof, transfer-proof, waterproof and sweat-proof capabilities.
- XL Comfort: Anyone love mango? Mango butter prevents skin dryness throughout the day while wearing the this new formula. Also, microspherical silica and emollient oil provided an easy, creamy and smooth application.
- XL Color: A blend of unique, translucent, crystal copolymer gels helps to amplify the color intensity of the Aqua XL pencils.
The MAKE UP FOR EVER AQUA XL Pencils are set to be available in MAY 2016 (just in time for Summer) and can be found at Sephora, Sephora.com, MAKE UP FOR EVER Boutiques and MAKEUPFOREVER.COM
