Make Up For Ever Aqua Black

I feel like somehow the entire world was keeping Make Up For Ever Aqua Black from me! Why had I never heard about it until I was browsing Sephora, greedily looking for items to spend my VIB discount on?

That’s ok world, I forgive you because now I have discovered it and so far it’s good, good stuff.

Aqua Black

Aqua Black is a waterproof cream shadow. But it’s not just a creamy eyeshadow, it’s also a great jet black cream eyeliner. It comes in a small tub with a plastic cover over the actual product (under the lid) to help keep it moist and creamy. And man is this stuff creamy! It just glides onto the skin, but it does dry somewhat quickly. Not super fast, but fast enough to get a bit of a panic into me as I am trying to get my liner shape perfect. It’s a really true, deep black shade.

I have yet to try it underneath other eyeshadows or as a smoky shadow itself, but as a liner it lasted all day with no flaking or or smudging. It even worked fairly well on my waterline. It lasted a couple hours without disappearing, which is better than most for me.

Now the REAL test begins…How long will it stay creamy and not dry out? We shall see, we shall see.

Availability: Sephora.

Pricing: $23.00 for 0.24 oz.
