Make Up For Ever is a well known brand amongst makeup professionals for their pigmented eyeshadow, HD foundations, and pencils. Similar to Urban Decay, MUFE has a vast offering of 25 different long lasting Aqua Eyes pencils (0L to 24L). What's unique about these formulas is that they are invented to be a two-in-one eyeshadow and liner pencil. These pencils have been rumored to used by Cirque du Soleil due to the pigmentation and long lasting quality. They can be purchased at Sephora.
(From Left to Right):
11L is a metallic purple/eggplant color
9L is a metallic yellow that looks like a vibrant gold in the sun. It's a very unique color for highlighting
12L is a metallic teal that doesn't have as much dimensions as MAC's Undercurrent
2L is a pearly dark brown
5L is a golden olive that's similar to UD Stash and lighter than MAC's Black Line
21L is a dark metallic gray/gunmetal similar to MAC GPS Zinc Zone
0L is a matte black but not as dark as Bobbi Brown's Black Line Gel Liner
10L is a metallic bronze
19L is a light brown with no shimmer and more of a matte.
15L is a shimmer royal blue
7L is a bright turquoise with shimmer
16L is a medium green with yellow shimmer. This looks a lot like a grass color.
18L is a deep burgundy that swatches almost dark red. It is an interesting color to pull off
6L is a deep purple that reminds me a lot of MAC's Rave.

Overall I like these liners since they are waterproof and serve dual purpose as liner and eyeshadow. One small downside for me is the lack of names for these pencils, making it hard to associate/remember the colors with each number. I swatched these on my arms and they stayed put for 10 hours without budging or smudging. Comparing MUFE to Urban Decay, I'm personally more fond of UD because they are more vibrant in color and have more shimmer/glitter. The stand out color from MUFE is definitely 9L because I haven't seen a gold liner in other collections.
So far I'm very impressed with the lasting power of MUFE pencils and I'm very curious about their other products (blush, foundation, eyeshadows, HD products). Hopefully I can try them out one day.
