Review|Aqua Seal Liquid Eye Primer|Makeup Revolution 

My Review of Makeup Revolution Aqua Seal Liquid Eye Primer with photos and swatchesmakeup-revolution-aqua-seal-liquid-eye-primer-review-bottle-sizeI put a 10p piece in the photo to show you how small the bottle is. It’s small! I got Aqua Seal because I didn’t know what the hell it is. It’s a tiny bottle of what looks like water. I haven’t seen anything like this before, so I spent the £3 to find out.
Here’s Makeup Revolution’s blurb-

Professional Eye Priming & Sealing at its best. Ultra High Performance & Multi uses for your kit. Use as a priming base for your eyeshadows to last all day. 

Brush lightly the liquid of the closed eye lid, and allow to dry, before Eyeshadow applied
Use as a sealant to protect your eyeshadows and waterproof. Brush Lightly the liquid over the top of an eyeshadow, to set and seal.
Mix with a metallic pure pigment eye shade to create an unbelievable foil effect.
RRP £3

It has the consistency of light oil. A drop of it spreads-

makeup-revolution-aqua-seal-liquid-eye-primer-review-consistencyHmm.

It’s a bit tricky to apply, if you use a drop straight from the bottle it spreads, you’re best dropping it on a clean brush to apply. Once it dries it leaves a tacky finish.  

So it has three suggested uses- under, on top of and mixed with eye shadow. Under eye shadow it works ok. It’s tacky surface seemed to hold the shadow. But by the end of the day my shadow had all huddled together in a line. But then I am made of pure oil, it might work great on you.

On top of shadow is a no no. It ruins your makeup. It sounds like a bad idea and it is.

Mixed with shadow, on the other hand, does work. It intensifies the colour. I used it with Urban Decays Chopper-

Aqua Seal is an unusual eye primer. It might take me a while to get to grips with it. I tried it as a primer for my under eye concealer, because it’s thin and moist. It worked rather well.

Overview 

Makeup Revolution Aqua Seal eye primer is funny runny stuff. I would recommend getting it, particularly if you like wearing eye shadow. I’ve enjoyed playing about with it. And it’s only £3! 6/10

    I have this, and think it’s really good, especially for the price! It holds my eyeshadow for the whole day, even if it’s got glitter But then again, I am blind… I could be just talking out of my arse 😂 Although I can’t see your pictures, you give very good explanations so I can follow it! You are one of my favourite beauty bloggers by far! 🙂 xxx

    1. Thanks so much Sassy. So pleased to hear that. Aqua seal has such an odd feel doesn’t it? I bet it is keeping your eyeshadow on all day. I’ve got a face that repels makeup. Thanks for the lovely comment xx
