You can use it with anything really. I used it with my foundation. Concealer. Eyeshadow. Blush. Even setting powder(didn't work well because I got way too much shimmer). It really makes whatever you use it with stays there. Remember to remove it good at night. It's harder to remove.

AquaSeal isn't a concealer. It's a transparent liquid that you mix with eye shadow if you want to use the shadow as an eyeliner. Or you can use AquaSeal on top of your eyeliner to make it last longer.

Yes!, but a little goes a long way so be careful. The first time I used it, I put 3-4 drops on the tip of my brush. It wasn't enough to make ti drippy...just a little soggy I suppose. Anyway, there was still liner on my brush and when I went to apply my soggy brush to my eye, I didn't realize that the Aqua Seal would reactivate the liner and ended up with a mess on my eye that was fairly difficult to remove. It sounds stupid, but I don't think that I'm the only one this has happened to. Good luck and enjoy

Yes! Definitely!!! It only make the eyeshadow appear on your eyes EXACTLY like the color in the palette. Make dark a LOT darker and shimmer shine. Just try it on your hand before you put it on your eyelid. PLEASE! Wash your brush after!

Nope, didn't work for me. It sealed the color, but it also smudged the color together. Also, it clump my eyeshadow powder together because I had to dip my brush on this product first and then to my eyeshadow powder. So I had to throw part of my eyeshadow away because it got stick together and can't be used anymore.

Yeah you can do that but you are going to have to use a brush and clean it right after, otherwise you'll get a stick. You can wet the brush with this and rub on the pencil until you get enough color on the brush and use it like a liquid lip liner(I know it's weird, but it works). or you can line you lips, then brush over the line with this on a brush. Be very careful because it smears the line easy this way and if it dries like that, you can only hope you have a strong enough makeup remover. Make sure you stretch your lips when you are using this, otherwise you might feel your lip "cracking" when you smile. You just have to play with it enough to find out a good way to use it. It will make it waterproof and last all day when used right.

The product does not say, and I have not looked at the ingredients. However, I did try it on my lip line and did not have any weird reactions.

I've only used this on my eyes and it appears that it dries matte. Well, not really matte...more like it dries to whatever to look like whatever your eyes looked like before you put on the Aqua Seal. I hope that helps.

It is pretty matte on my eyelids. I have hooded eyes that is on the oily side. I was not disappointed.

It is matte, but it is not drying. It kind of works like a liquid plastic seal to the liner. I have found that when I take off my makeup, the liner comes off as if it was a sticker, or like when you take off false lashes. I also didn't find that it kept the makeup on any longer. Maybe lightly coating the brows it would work, but for regular eyeliner I wouldn't bother with it, or at least I haven't found a way to use it that makes much of a difference.

I have used it on the lips and it works nicely on the lips as well as the rest of the face. Especially if you are using it with glitter. Sometimes I like to put red lipliner, red lipstick and then setting it with the Makeup Forever red glitter with the Eye Seal to set it for the day or night. The eye seal will definitely come in handy it keep in on your lips when you eat or drink somethinmg later.

Yes i did try it on my lips. I did try it with glitter and I feel that it didn't make too much difference. I suggest getting one of MAC's Dazzleglass. Those things are AMAZING. They last a while on your lips and when the do start to fade they leave a good amount of glitter on your lips.

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.

I tried using the MUFE Eye Seal with cream shadows and pencils. It does stays on but may smudge a bit. Doesn't dry completely like when using powedered shadow. I found if you use your cream shadow with the seal, then apply a thin layer of powder shadow over it you don't have the smudging.

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.

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.

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 :)

answer 2
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.
