Questions & Answers for MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Seal

Question
Is this product used INSTEAD of, or IN CONJUNCTION with a shadow primer?
I have watery eyes, and my liner always fades/flakes away from both the inner & outer corner of my eyes. I've tried pencil, liquid and gel liners, with the same results. Even waterproof liners don't hold up to my tears! I'm currently using Too Faced primer, and it works great in the middle of my eyelid, where the tears don't reach. I'd love to find a product that can stand up to my tears!

I use it with a shadow primer as well. It has allowed me to line my water line and lower lid, even with teary eyes!

I found that whenever I'd make a mistake drawing my liner (using the aqua seal over it) and needed to wipe it off to fix it, I needed to use makeup remover (water had no effect on it), so I'd say it would probably stand up to your tears; It's pretty sturdy stuff! I personally use it in conjuction with an eyeshadow primer (Urban Decay) just because I have really oily eyelids (better to be on the safe side) but I think it would be alright without as well.
Best of luck!

Try hourglass liquid waterproof liner. I was one the store and drew a line on my hand to see the shade of the Indigo liner. I didn't bother removing it before leaving. Two days later the line is still on my hand. I had showered, washed my hands, did the dishes, bathed my dog and that stuff was still there. No smudging what's so ever. I finally took my make up remover to it and it came off pretty easily.

I use it to set my pencil eyeliner (top and bottom) and it lasts all day. Smudge and water proof. I use the end of a Q-tip to apply. Use only a tiny drop. It''s enough for both eyes.

No, you dip your brush into a little liquid that you have dropped onto a surface. I just used the back of my hand. Then put your wet brush into the eyeshadow to use as a liner.

waterproofing makeup
Has anyone tried using this over their mineral face powders to make it water proof? I know it says "eye seal" but it also says it can waterproof all powdery makeup and pencils. Any help would be great :)

I have water proofed my mascara and all eye products with this, but not my entire face makeup. You could try it, but you would no longer be using a mineral type makeup as it seems it would convert it to a very thin type of liquid makeup. I do not feel it would be the best use of this product. All of your eye makeups are worth a try, but the face I would not. But there are quite a few waterproof makeups out there for face and body. MAC has one and so does MakeUp Forever - and I am sure there are others I would check those out. As mixing this with a mineral makeup would decrease it's coverage and the look of the makeup itself.

Should work like a charm with liquid eye liner, just be sure to let the liner dry first for about a minute or so before applying Eye Seal.

I just wrote a in-depth review of this on the Sephora site, but the MUFE website says to apply first and then apply your shadow quickly before it dries. Personally, I do not find that this product works on my variety of shadows to intensify the color, but it does make a nice bold liquid liner out of your shadows (black or dark colors), but it's hit and miss with the way you apply it. If you press your liner on with a crisp slanted brush, it's pretty good; if you draw it on with a brush it wipes away. My method of using it as a liner is to wet my brush with the Eye Seal then load my brush with shadow; when I tried to use this under my shadow as a base, I just put a small amount on the pad of my finger and pat it on my lid. I don't find that it really helps much with shadow adhering and lasting all day or with amping up the color of my shadows like it does with MUFE colors.

Overall I'm not crazy about this product. Azziza used to make an absolutely killer eyeshadow base back in the 80's...wish they were still around!

I don't think this is meant to waterproof mascara... just powdery products like eyeshadows, powder liners, and maybe even powder concealers.

I would not recommend to use it on the inner rim of your lids - this is very sticky seal and you wouldn't be able to remove it safely. I recommend to use it only above the upper lash line and below the lower lash line.

You cna use this product with anything especially eyeshadow and eyeliner. I just wouldn't recommend using it with a liquid eyeliner that hasn't dried yet. It works amzing on top of eyershadows and eyeliners. I've used it on top of eyeshadows, gel eyeliners, eye brow powders, lipliners, cheek blush powders, and luminizers. It works best with one drop with a brush on top of the makeup. If you mix the makeup and the eye seal with a brush, just make sure to wash the brush very thoroughly afterwards with brush shgampoo and water. When the eye seal dries onto the brush, it will cause the bristles to stiffen and stick together.
