MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream #22

Pantone named Emerald the colour of the year, and since St. Patty's Day is quickly approaching, I decided to experiment with some emerald shades! MAKE UP FOR EVER's Aqua Cream in shade #22* is a beautiful light emerald colour.

From Sephora:

"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."

The Aqua Cream formula is very long-wearing, smudge resistant, and pigmented. I find that this create almost a tacky base, perfect for layering powder shadows over. I find these quite different from Maybelline's Color Tattoos. MUFE's Aqua Creams are much thicker in consistency. Both have great lasting power, and MUFE has a larger colour range.

I used #22 all over my lids, and then layered Urban Decay's Jealous and Beware from the new Theodora Palette and MUFE's Powder Shadow #80*. I love mixing different shades of green and brown together for an eye look. I think adding the brown neutral shade makes this look more wearable. I lined my eyes using MAKE UP FOR EVER'S Aqua Liner in #13 Matte Black, and used Maybelline's The Rocket mascara to finish off the look.

This cream shadow stays put all day long, until I remove my makeup at the end of the day. The Aqua Creams are $26 CAD each, and MAKE UP FOR EVER has a wide colour selection for you to choose from. I'm personally really wanting to try out shades 3, 18, and 14! Have you tried MUFE's Aqua Creams before? Are you going to be sporting emerald make up for St. Patty's Day? :)


  1. This colour is awesome!!! :)

  2. These really have some staying power for gals with oily lids .. I just wish they has more wearable colors. The green is pretty though :-)


    1. The staying power is amazing! :)
      They do have many wearable shades (greys, browns, etc.), in addition to the bright colours :)
