Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams

The new Aqua Creams from Make Up For Ever are pigment powerhouses. What you see in the pot is exactly what you get.

The emerald green is swoonworthy beautiful. I use it on the whole eye with some light gold shadow in the inner corner, and it makes a great liner as well. The brown is a perfect mid-deep brown with shimmer. A great layering shadow or for a smoky eye or just by itself which is how I've used it so far.

They are blendable but not super creamy. There's good stick to them ( but a non -sticky texture) and that keeps them on the eye , lip or cheek much longer. Mother of Pearl particles give shimmer and depth.

These are made to withstand water, humidity, hot photo shoots etc. They are smudge and tear proof and come in 21 shades ( 6 for lips/cheeks, 15 for eyes). All can be blended or mixed as needed .

I am happy to report that the Aqua Creams last long on my eyes. I've said many times about my severe eye makeup melt , so I was anxious as could be to try these. I do get a tiny bit of wear after several hours but overall these last longer on me ( and remember I can melt almost anything it seems short of permanent makeup) than most eyeshadows .

Color #9 is a coral/pink for lips and cheeks. Same bold pigment for long lasting lipcolor. This is not a pale, quiet shade and it lasted well on my lips even with a gloss topcoat .

Aqua Creams are in store/ on site now at and retail for $ 22.00
