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.

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 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.

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.

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.

What kind of brush is recommended to use with this?
i used a flat fine brush, but that didn't seem to work to seal on my pencil eyeliner - in fact, it looked kinda oily and seem to melt/smear the eyeliner. i think i might be using the wrong brush/wrong technique.

drexalia - I read your review about the eye seal by Makeup Forever. I also ONLY use eyeshadow as my liner, and my little trick to keep it set ALL DAY is to use a black eyeliner first on upper and lower lash lines, then with a small angled brush, apply shadow on top. You will be AMAZED!!!! Even if you use the same shadow on the rest of your eye, the black eyeliner will enhance the shade to give a slight contrast and will not show thru. Hope you read this and it helps. - - Jersey Girl 4ever!

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.
