The Make Up For Ever Holiday 2012 collection features two eye-enhancing gift sets, including the Aqua Eyes Collection ($36 USD / $40 CAD) and the All Eyes On You Set (originally $59 USD / $65 CAD, on sale now for $45 USD / $50 CAD). For the eyeliner fanatic, the Aqua Eyes Collection features two full size Aqua Eyes waterproof eyeliners as well as four mini colored eyeliners- or if you want a little more variety, the All Eyes On You kit includes two full size eyeliners as well as full size mascara, cream eyeshadow and face powder!
Each gift set is a great value, and you can feel great giving them knowing each is filled with some of Make Up For Ever’s best-selling products and must-haves that always need replenishing. The Aqua Eyes Collection isn’t available online anymore, but I have seen them in Sephora stores. The All Eyes On You Set has recently been marked down on Sephora online, so grab it quick before its gone if you like what you see!
All Eyes On You Set
The All Eyes On You Set is a little larger, featuring more full-size products and a variety of them at that. It includes two best selling Aqua Eyes shades, 0L (Matte black) and 21L (deep grey), as well as a full-size Smoky Lash mascara (arguably one of the best mascaras in the world- seriously). The set also includes a full size Aqua Cream in 16 Pink Beige, which would be gorgeous on eyes or cheeks! To finish your entire look, the set also includes the cult classic HD Powder for an all-over soft focus finish.
Especially with the sale, this kit makes a lovely gift for anyone on your list, or to pick up for yourself if you’ve been wanting to try a few of the included products!
Aqua Eyes Collection
Eyeliners are probably the ‘safest’ gift, right up there with lipgloss. Pretty much everyone loves eyeliner, and this Aqua Eyes Collection is so fantastic because it includes two full-size Aqua Eyes waterproof eyeliners in 0L (Matte Black) and 2L (Pearly Brown), the shades that you would reach for on a daily basis, and it also includes four travel-size eyeliners in 21L (Dark Grey), 6L (Blackened Purple), 12L (Bluish Green) and 23L (Champagne)- colored shades that are nice to have and play with once in a while. The varying sizes allows the pricetag to be totally affordable while still offering a good amount of variety.
While the Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes formula may not be the best out there in my opinion, it’s definitely a great quality, long-lasting eyeliner and the value of these sets is quite awesome. Great to have on hand or for traveling with.

- Overall: Two great gift sets for the holiday season, each filled with some of Make Up For Ever’s best-selling products and shades. I think the All Eyes On You kit is a little better because there is more variety and full size products- plus it’s on sale now, so that makes it an even better deal. The Aqua Eyes Collection is great in terms of value, because of the different sizes of eyeliners in it.
