Make Up For Ever Black Tango

Would you believe I took these photos on August 31st and am, just now posting the review? Yes, because of my *hiatus* I am still catching up on goodies for fall 2012. Bear with me. ­čÖé

Make Up For Ever has a new (ok let’s be honest, it’s not really new anymore) palette out called Black Tango. It’s limited edition and features four exclusive new shades of their Aqua Cream eye shadows.

It comes in a really sleek looking red and black palette with a pretty lace fan print. Inside you open it up to a large mirror with a nice black lace-like border, four Aqua Cremes in their own pots with lids, and a dual-ended flat nylon brush.

Make Up For Ever Black Tango Swatches
Red, Green, Blue, Ivory

The Red shade is a blackened red with very slight shimmer. It’s vampy and deep.

The Green shade is a deep forest green with slight shimmer. My favorite one.

The Blue shade is a dark navy blue with slight shimmer.

The Ivory shade is a pale creamy ivory. Very patchy and not opaque.

Overall: In terms of packaging, this is really nice. Love the design and that the Aqua Cremes are in their own pots with lids to keep them fresh. The payoff and shades of the first three are really good. The Ivory shade…not so much! Aqua Cremes are waterproof and made to LAST. They do “set” rather fast so blending them out quickly is a must.

Availability: Sephora and Make Up For Ever boutiques.

Pricing: $45.00.
