Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams for Summer 2012 Swatches & Review
Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams are nothing new, but they do have four bright new summer shades out!
These cream shadows are waterproof, smudge-proof and crease resistant. They come in 25 shades with the newest being: #23 (bright lime green), #24 (bright yellow), #25 (bright aqua blue) and #26 (grape purple).
#25, #23 (no primer)
#25 is a bright aqua blue shimmer.
#23 is a bright lime green shimmer.
Both of these shades are nicely pigmented and feel smooth and creamy. They blend out really nicely also, and you have a bit of time to work with them before they “set”. They’re also build-able! I always apply with my finger because I just find that easier, but you can also use a brush.
As far as creasing, I always wear them over an eye-primer and they last all day no problem. The one caveat for me is I have to apply them then let them set while my eyes are closed, otherwise I will get slight creasing in the eye socket (see photos above this happened a little bit). While they are waterproof, they’re easy to remove even with a mild cleanser and warm water (I normally use Cetaphil).
Overall: I love a light wash or major pop of a bright color on my lids in the summer. These two shades are ones I will definitely be incorporating into my looks on hot summer days!
Pricing: $23.00 for 0.21 oz.
