MUFE Aqua Eyes 25 years Collection

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 13 - 2010

I picked this little set up at IMATS (I gave up on the collective haul post – they’ll be coming at you one by one I’m afraid!) from Guru Makeup Emporium who were offering a very decent discount!

5 mini versions of the very popular Aqua Eyes Pencils housed in a litle collector’s tin.

Colours included are: Matte Black (0L), Pearly Brown (2L), Blue with Green Highlights (12L), Shimmering Plum (4L) and Champagne (23L).

The pencils are heavily pigmented and apply smoothly on the waterline.  The champagne will make a lovely eye-brightener, and the blue is simply to die for.  They don’t budge from my lashline and sick to the waterline for a good few hours.

These are my first ‘pencil purchase’ since I went through my stash binning everything that wasn’t GOSH. I won’t be binning these 😉

Do you wear coloured pencils?

I paid £10 for the set.  MUFE Aqua Eyes Pencils retail in the UK for around £11.95 each.

  1. That seems like really good value for money when you consider how much a single Urban Decay 24/7 costs! They colours look really rich and lovely too. I’ve only just started using coloured pencils (I was a black only girl until 22 when I lost my favourite black eyeliner and took a short break) and I have to say they’re really opening me up to whole new realms of make up shaped fun! Also, thank you so much for following my little blog – it made me smile to actually have more than one follower (especially as I admire your blog very much!) :)

    They look lovely! I definitely need to get myself some more eyeliners!
    Also what nail polish have you got on here? I think i need a colour like that! xx

  3. Claire says:

    I’ve got this set too. I LOVE the blue shade and have been impressed with the staying power. I used it as a shadow base for a night out with MAC Young Punk on top and carbon blended into the crease. I looked pretty disco, if I do say so myself :-)

  4. Cindy Khor says:

    yup, i just adore my green eyeliner pencil from The Body Shop.

    i think the packaging for the product is very sleek. maybe am gonna purchase this.

  5. I also have this set and I like it! The design is very pretty :)

  6. When I saw this in my blogger dashboard I thought it was going to be that huge set that costs hundreds of dollars and was like ‘O_O wow, people actually buy that?’ This set makes much more sense XD

    I’ve been lemming the black for waterline use FOREVER, one pencil is like $30-something AUD though D:

  7. Rocaille says:

    Looks beautiful, I think Pearly Brown might be a great alternative to a black eyeliner for a more delicate looks or still very dramatic on us, palest of pale :) Great value for money too! xxx

  8. Shifa says:

    wow that is a bargain!

    Very pretty, and what a bloody bargain!!

  12. @sparkle and shade – you’re too kind (and very welcome!) – I only wore black too for so many years, I love blue especially nowadays, it goes so well to add a pop of colour to an otherwise neutral eye, especially if it’s a more golden neutral!

    @Lydia – Alright lovely! It’s a Nails Inc. shade called Battersea Park x

    @SparklzandShine – I think the blue is my fav too!

    @Claire – Thanks for the hint about using them as a base, I just never think to do that – I’ll try it!

    @Cindy Khor – The Body Shop ones are nice too, a little hard until you warm them up I find though

    @Marina – It is so pretty and convenient to travel with too

    @SilhouetteScreams – LOL, I’ve seen that set, crazy! All makeup is insanely expensive in AUS isn’t it? :(

    @Rocaille – Definitely, it’s a little more interesting than plain ol’ brown too x

    @Shifa – I know! They weren’t selling many… I think they only had about 20 sets out on the table. I was in the righ place at the right time for once.

    @Nicola – Have you tried any of the GOSH or Urban Decay liners?

    @RedTiger21 – About time I got a bargain!
