Batlle of the Blue Eyeliners Du Jour 4.22.10

Hi all, so you know that one of my new obsession is navy blue eyes. I cant get enough!!

Anyway, I took a trip over to Sephora to grab a new Navy eyeliner. I knew I would be deciding between Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide on pencil in Binge and Make Up Forever's Aqua Eye eyeliner in 3L, described as an iridescent Navy Blue. They both retail at $17 Urban Decay and Make Up forever. What did I go with and what were my thoughts?

Upon initial glance and swipe I thought I would be going with the Urban Decay as it was slightly more shimmery and I wanted that gleam/shine to the the smokey navy liner look I was going for. I swiped both on my hand to compare.

Make up forever on the Left and Urban Decay. You cant really see the shimmer in this photo.

So I grabbed the UD and walked around for a bit, i guess I was rubbing my hand and whatever and all of a sudden it half way disappeared and smudged. No Bueno!! I thought the UD liners were almost smudge proof. I was wrong...clearly!

I of course wanted to see how big of a difference there was so I rubbed it some more on purpose and Voila, smudges! Anyway, I put back the UD and promptly went to get the MUFE to buy instead. Look how great the Make Up Forever stayed put. I was really impressed!!



Needless to say I will be sticking with Make Up forever liners from now on! I really recommend MUFE Aqua Eye eyeliners. I use the black all the time, I have now retired by Zero from Urban decay! Sad to say, but true. Make Up Forever's lasting power blows ALL competition out of the water. If you are looking for smudge free, water proof and long lasting eyeliner I would suggest heading over to Sephora to check out the line!

Will you try out? Have you used MUFE before?

PS- next comparison I do will have to be between MAC Greasepaint stick in Uniformly Blue and MUFE liner in 3L.

  1. MUFE has the best-staying liners! Their Aqua lip is amazing too.
    Know what a great brand is also that I had never head of, Lord & Berry. My friend swatched it, washed her hands, scrubbed them, and we could still see the L&B!

  2. Make up forever is the best! I use their eyeliners and foundation, concealer, and primer. Everything works amazing! The primer makes your skin so smooth and the concealer covers without looking cakey. I never have a problem with the makeup coming off or smudging. I LOVE MUFE!

  3. Wow - I just used Binge yesterday too. You got me on a blue eyeliner kick...I only lined and winged my upper lid. It was fine but I have been thinking more and more about MUFE especially the liners and their eyeshadows.

  7. You can always add shimmer on top of a liner so I think the less shimmery MUFE liner was probably a more practical choice anyway!

  8. RaeRae- Of course, but I like that wet look some shimmery liners have without the powdery-ness. If that makes sense even. hahaha prob not!

  9. What's so weird is that everyone loves MUFE's aqua liners and they smudged HORRIBLY on me...I'm wondering if they changed the formula because
    I am the only one that hates them LOL I do however have a UD 24/7 liner on the way, but it's only because of the purple color 'Lust' I have wanted it forever, and can't find anything similar. Wish me luck..hopefully it doesn't end up on my cheeks haha
