Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Eyeliner in 23L

I have an extreme fear of running out of MAC's I Get No Kick Eyeliner.  It's a beautiful champagne color, limited edition, and I only bought one.  I love it for the waterline to open my eyes or even smudged into the lash line for a subtle pop.

I've been on a quest since then to find the perfect champagne eyeliner, leading me to:
MUFE Aqua Eyes Eyeliner in 23L.  Retails for $18 at Sephora (I had a 10% off VIB renewal coupon + 12% off with Ebates).

The color is described as a metallic pink champagne.  I think it's more on the champagne than the pink side, but the color is gorgeous and I think this one will look great on all skin tones.
Overall, I think it's very similar to MAC's I Get No Kick.  I probably would have continued buying that one had it not been LE because it is more cost effective at $14.50 and for waterline use, I felt like these two were very comparable for staying power.  I usually touch up once mid-day and I'm set. The MUFE pencil does however have a waterproof formula, so it may hold up a bit more during those hot summer months.  I'll have to test this out more.

Overall Rating: 4.5 - I'd repurchase again and again...and again.  But I still am holding on to my MAC pencil.

Let me know if any of you have found a similar liner on the market.

  1. I don't have either of the pencils you described above, but I do have a Sephora Nano eyeliner that looks like the exact shade of your photo and swatch. It was $5 and applies really well for me and has decent staying power, though I don't apply it on my waterline. The shade is Pearl Beige 09
