MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream #26

MAKE UP FOR EVER has recently released a few new shades into their Aqua Cream line. Their Aqua Creams remind me of the Maybelline Color Tattoos, in that they are cream shadows that I normally use as a base for powder shadows.



 The Aqua Shadows are very creamy and pigmented, here's what MUFE says about them:

"An ultra-pigmented, long-lasting waterproof cream. Aqua Cream combines the highest-quality pigments with mother of pearl particles to give immediate rich color payoff with a luminous finish in just one application. It's long-lasting formulation will not crease or smudge under the most extreme conditions and its creamy and elastic texture allows for easy blending."

I have one other Aqua Cream, #13, which is a beige-gold colour, and I love using it as a base. #26 is a violet colour, which isn't as everyday as #13, but it's fun for a pop of colour!

I normally like to wear subtle colours, which is why I love Urban Decay's Naked Palettes. So, I decided to wear this Aqua Cream as a base under some more neutral powder shadows.




First I applied a thin layer of Aqua Cream #26, then I applied Urban Decay's Sin, Buck, and Hustle over top. I'm really liking the toned down purple look! It's a nice wash of colour, but still very wearable. The Aqua Shadows make a great base, and stay all day long. Even in the hot Summer days, my eye make up has been lasting all day long! The Aqua Creams retail for $25 CDN and can be purchased at Sephora. Each Aqua Shadow contains 6g or .21oz. I always store my Aqua Shadows upside down, that way they don't dry out quickly!

Have you tried any of the Aqua Shadows from MAKE UP FOR EVER? Which shades do you recommend? :) 

Disclosure: This product was sent to me for my honest review.
