The new Aqua Matic eye shadow pencils by MUFE..

I was at Sephora for the VIB rouge event and this new product by MUFE caught my eye.. It had many claims, most of all being waterproof, as the name suggests.. My concern as always with any cream eye products is – will you last on my oily eyelids without creasing, let alone be waterproof??!! I swatched it on my hands and it was pretty much smudge-proof.. So, I decided to try one out after speaking to the MUFE representative at Sephora, who claimed that the product is crease-proof..

Sephora’s website claims:

What it is: A creamy, creaseless formula that provides nonstop color.
What it does: This eye shadow pencil glides on and stays put. The unbelievably blendable texture includes silica, so it applies effortlessly onto the eyelid and won’t transfer. This highly-pigmented, waterproof, smudge-free shadow delivers immediate, intense color payoff. A retractable twist-up mechanism allows for quick and mistake-free application, and a sharpener makes it convenient to take this product to go for touchups.”

I purchased the brown shade called S-60 or satiny warm brown.. It’s a lovely shade of dark brown with gold shimmer particles in it.. The color looked like it would make a good base for a brown smokey eye or just on its own.. It costs $21 for 0.049 oz of product.. The price, I hoped might push against the odds of the product not working on my eyes.. So, I tried the product on my bare eyelids.. I applied it directly from the pencil along my top lash line and onto my lids.. and then blended it out with a real techniques brush.. It blended out without any difficulty.. However, within a couple of hours, the product seemed to disappear from my lids (except for at lash line) and collected in my crease (and this is just me sitting at home, not doing anything that would cause excessive oilyness/sweating)!! For a product at $21 and that claims to be waterproof, I would have expected this product to last a lot longer! I regret buying this product and will not be buying any more from this range..

Some people may claim that I should have used an eye primer before using this product.. Firstly, the product claims to be creaseless, without the need for any additional product.. Also, if I had to use an eye primer, I would use any of the drugstore eye pencils on top.. Any of them would last with a good eye primer on.. This product gets a big Thumbs DOWN from me.. I would rate it 2/10, 2 just for the color range! I had better expectations from a MUFE product.. Disappointed…. 🙁
