Revlon ColorStay - alternative to MUFE Aqua Eyes..?!

my lil cousin swears by the Revlon ColorStay eyeliner so i decided to give it a try -- and boy am i glad i did! i did an eye-by-eye test w/ Revlon on my left eye and Make Up For Ever on the right, and i have to say they are pretty equivalent. i am currently on day #2 of testing, and today, Revlon is winning. i haven't done a water test however...

i usually don't try out a lot of drugstore brands because i can't just buy them and return them like i do department store brands, but i think i will venture out a bit more now. i now have a new HG liner for less than half the price!

i bought mine at Rite Aid for ~$7 something, and i got a second one for half off. i bought #201 (black) and #202 (black brown -- for the more natural look).

**edit 2/16/10 - wore this w/ only setting it lightly w/ powder, and boy, did i turn into a panda! MUFE is a little more forgiving when you don't set completely. this drops Revlon a star. sorry cuz!**

$5.99 - $7.39
Where to Buy:,, rite aid, cvs, walgreens, etc.
Overall Rating: 3.75/5 stars
Tip: always remember to set the liner w/ powder after application (this goes for ALL eyeliners). sometimes, i'm lazy and i end up w/ semi-panda eyes even w/ the best eyeliners.

thanx candice!!

what kind of powder can i set the eyeliner with? do you reccommend a brand?

you can either use regular face powder or a dark eyeshadow. i actually prefer to use eyeliner that does not need to be set -- in my more recent posts, i recommend Dolly Wink's liquid eyeliner or the 1-day Tattoo. Milani also has a waterproof eyeliner that does not need to be set.
