Ouch! I know I asked you to pinch me to see if I was dreaming, but dagnabbit! — did you have to pinch so hard?!
That’s alright… I forgive you. I’m sure you’re probably just excited about the new $160 Make Up For Ever Ultimate Eye Liner Collection like I am and couldn’t control yourself. Heck, I might have done the same thing.
The new limited edition release of pencil eye liners comes fully equipped with 14 full-size eyeliners in three different formulas to make holiday dreams come true (and to cover all of your liner bases). With seven long-wearing Aqua Eyes pencils, three smudgy Crayon Kohls and four vibrant liquid Aqua Liners, it really does try to live up to its name as the Ultimate Eye Liner Collection.
And the price also represents a hefty savings (even though $160 is still a ton of tacos).
If you were to buy all 14 of these liners separately, it would set you back $269, but in the kit, the liners work out to $11 each, which is a lot less than the $17-23 MUFE usually charges.
The colors in the kit should flatter a wide range of skin tones. MUFE thoughtfully covered most of the major color bases, sprinkling some fun greens, purples and a shimmery champagne into a mix of everyday basic black, brown and gray shades.
I would’ve loved to also see a bronze or a gold here, but that’s probably just my warm skin tone talking.
And the icing on the cake? — Make Up For Ever threw in a sharpener to keep those pencil tips sharp.
The Ultimate Eye Liner Collection is one of the more expensive holiday kits I’ve seen so far this year (we’re talkin’ Burberry Trench Coat territory!), but it does translate into some pretty sweet savings.
PRICE: $160 (a $269 value)
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Sephora stores and online at sephora.com
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A- (I wish it also included a gold or bronze shade)
Thank goodness for waterproof liner…
…because I had to go to the dentist today! Yea!
It was just for a cleaning, but I’m scared to death of those crazy silver hooks. Every time I see one of those things coming at me out of the corner of my eye, first I quiver (and not in the same way I do when I see Jeremy Renner’s arms), and then I cry.
Speaking of J. Renn, did you catch him on Saturday Night Live last weekend? What did you think?
