My recent love for Make Up For Ever products shows no sign of coming to a halt any time soon. I've tried a few products from the line, my favourite being Full Cover concealer and more recently their HD blushes. However, I'm still on the fence regarding the HD foundation. Two years on some days I like it and others I loathe it. Meh.
Anyway the latest offering from the cosmetic powerhouse comes in the form of Aqua Creams, a collection of versatile waterproof colours that can be worn on the eyes, lips and cheeks.
I picked a few up at The Make Up Show NYC but wish I had picked up the brown and either the purple, blue or green. I felt quite rushed as the queue to pay was forming so I didn't have time to think my choices through properly.
L-R #15 #12 and #17
I've not had a chance to use them on my eyes yet but the swatches pictured were swiped almost 10 hours ago and have survived numerous hand washing and rubbing. Seriously, they've not budged! They apply ever so smoothly and feel extremely light on the skin. Pigment is rich, drying time swift and I love how they can be used alone, layered with eyeshadows, blush and even lip gloss for added intensity.
I sniffed them out of curiousity and I'm not so hot on the smell, which is reminiscent of paint, but they'll be nowhere near my nose when used, so whatever. I'll see how long they last once on my face and if they pass the test, and then I may get a couple more shades.
For eyes and cheeks:
# 1 # 2 #3 #4 #11 # 12 #13 #14 #15 #16 #17 #18 #19 #20 #21 #22
For cheeks and lips:# 5 # 6 #7 #8 #9 #10
I'm not sure how much these retail for in the UK, but you can give Guru Makeup Emporium a call on 0207 731 4646 and check.
