Make Up Forever Eye Seal Review

I got sucked into buying this because the MA said that it will waterproof my eye makeup. Even ladies who go for synchronised swimming wear this. How am I not suppose to fall for that???

Taken from Make Up Forever Singapore website


Created to transform all forms of eye products into waterproof make up. With the help of a brush, they can become long lasting and resistant.


Put several drops of Eye Seal in the bottle lid / small cup. Soak the brush in the liquid and then mix it with make up ( Star Powder/ Eye Shadow, Cake Liner, Glitter, etc )

Dany's Advice - Use a brush dipped with Eye Seal and Diamond Powder to create an unique liner on your lash line to natually enhance eyes.

Content: 12 ml
Price: $45.00

I was disappointed with its performance with the MUFE Metal Powder I bought. UDPP helped my Metal Powder stay put better than Eye Seal. I couldn't leave it like that, I had to justify paying $45 for the Eye Seal. So here is a test I did with UDPP 24/7 eyeliner.

After vigorous rubbing, all three remain intact.

With a wash of water, all three stayed put.

Then I rubbed vigorously again. Still stayed intact.

This is what the swatch looked like after rubbing, washing, rubbing and drying. No bad eh?

Then I tried using an eye shadow. This is UD's Deluxe eye shadow in Fishnet. I dipped a brush wet with eye seal and mixed it with Fishnet and drew a line.

After a wash.

After rubbing.

Then I dried my arm with a tissue paper. Not bad too.

I guess it works best with eye liners and eye shadows but not metals powders. I'm not sure how it will hold up with MAC pigments though. I wish I didn't pay so much for this. I think UDPP works just as well but for a fraction of the price. MA did say that I have to get the hang of using it. I guess it needs more experimenting to find out what works best.

Ratings: 2 lipsticks.


  1. LOL the UD liner held up better on its own! XD

    but with normal eyeshadow it works great!

    BTW, for loose pigments and such, I'd recommend Fyrinnae's Pixy Epoxy ( ). I don't have it myself, since their paypal gate hates me and never lets me pay XDDD
    But this little stuff got great reviews and works like nothing else...and dirt cheap too!^^
    I wonder if it works with everyday shadows too, not just pigments....

  2. Hey sweetie, I'm checking out the link you gave me. Thanks.

  3. Thanks for this post. i am really liking MUFE these days...searchin high n low for metal powders....

  4. Hey resham,

    me too! I feel like getting more of their HD blush because they are so good and have you seen these?

    I want to get my hands on some, especially #21 Turqoise!

  5. Jacqueline, have you tried this with MAC pigments since your review?
    Or have you found a better product? I like the idea of this because then I could use it to convert eyeshadows into eyeliners!

    1. Yes I have tried it with Mac loose pigments, I don't feel that it makes a nice opaque line. I have to go over a few times and the line just doesn't look precise, I rather use a liquid liner. I also dip my pencil eye liners into Eye Seal they last a little longer than normal. I've been using the in conjunction with my MUFE eye pencil on my water line, they last slightly longer but will still smudge after 3 hours. Honestly not the greatest of products, it performs great on the arm swatches but unfortunately not on my eyes.


I love comments! Please leave me one. I promise I'll write back.
