Aqua Cake Eye Liner in Black- Review & swatch

Hello pretty ladies !

Today I am reviewing Aqua cake eye liner in Matte Black. I have been using it for a year now so I thought I should do a review about it. Lets check out :)

The Product:

Aqua Cake eye liner comes in a clear plastic jar. The jar is completely stuffed with the product so its going to stay with you for a very very long time :D. It comes sealed so you cant look at the product at the shop but its colour pay off is the same as it look from outside. So overall the packaging is not much attractive but it does the job well :)


Don't mind the condition of the product, I am using it for over a year and that is all that got used up :)

My Experience:

My experience with this liner is a mix of liking and disliking but i never regret buying it. The color pay off is very very good and its very pigmented.There is alot of product in small price tag that is going to last for a very long time even if you use it daily !.I also use as a matte eye shadow
The only drawback of this liner is its not smudge proof :(. I have oily lids so its gets on on my crease very fast and is faded by the end of the day . I did a little search on this and found out that Kryolan is offering an eyeliner sealant to make this liner smudge proof. But the sealant is quite expensive as compared to the liner so I didn't buy it.

How to Use:

  • Dampen the brush with water and remover excess of water n the back of your hand
  • Roll the brush on the liner so that it enough product sticks to the brush
  • Now apply in your favorite style and keep your eye closed for 30 secs so that liner drys off completely.
  • If you are using eyeliner sealant, then use it instead of water and dampen the brush in it
  • Some people spray water directly on the cake, I personally don't recommend that as it makes quite alot of mess and wastes the product.

The Swatch:

I swatched it with and without dampening the brush. The only difference is that with damp brush the finish is fine. Here have a look.


I rubbed the swatch after a while with dry fingers and look what happened :(


I Like:

  • A lot of product in small price tag
  • Easy to use
  • Affordable
  • Long lasting
  • Very pigmented
  • Dual use-as a liner & as eye shade

I Don't Like:

  • Smudges fast on oily lids
  • Fades by the end of the day

My Rating:

I give it a 3/5 just because it doesn't stay on my eyes for long and smudges easily. If you don't have oily lids then this is the thing for you. Its perfect for beginners as in a small price tag you can get alot of product to experiment and practice :)

I got mine for PKR. 250/- from a local cosmetic shop with the brush. There is also another one that is for PKR 500/- as the shop keeper says its the ORIGINAL one.I have tried that also and there is absolutely no difference in the result.
