Make Up For Ever is one of my favorite brands. In fact, every time I try something out from them I wonder why I am not reading about them on blogs daily. Everyone should love this brand as much as I do! Some of my staple products are from this line. I got the opportunity to test out some of their new products and I will be sharing my thoughts below! Read on for more info.
The Aqua Matic Eye shadow pencils are fantastic. I got to try out I-90 Iridescent Pop Purple and ME-50 Metallic Golden Taupe. These are the exact two shades I would have picked for myself first out of the line so I was pretty stoked to see them. These can be used as eyeshadow or eyeliner. They have a built in sharpener in the back side so you can keep them just as sharp as the day you bought them. They are completely waterproof and smudge proof. I love how intense the colors are! The next colors I want to try are their two nude sparkly shades- ME-54 Metallic Pinky Beige and S-52 Satiny Flesh Colored Pink.
Aqua Rouge Liquid Lip Color in 3 Light Rosewood is another new favorite of mine. I have the Aqua Rouge in several other brighter colors and I’m realizing now I haven’t touched them since last summer. I adore this formula and I’m so glad to be reminded of how amazing it is. One side, the pigmented side, is an opaque, matte textured lipstick. This liquid lipstick does not budge, transfer, or fade the entire day. The other side is a non-sticky clear lip gloss with a lot of staying power. These two together are an amazing duo. The gloss will come off over time and need to be reapplied but the lipstick is almost like a super powered stain in that it is not going ANYWHERE ever, unless removed. I wore it the entire day and it was still there at bed time, even after eating and drinking. If you need a long lasting lippie, look no further.
Aqua Liner Waterproof eyeliner in 17 Diamond Gray is a waterproof, smudgeproof, and highly pigmented gray liner. It has a bit of shimmer in it as well. I normally wear black liner so this is a nice departure from my daily routine. Obviously to get a gray to show up on the eye you would have to be wearing a lighter and more neutral eye look. This does stay all day and it stood the test against my watery allergy eyes! I love the foam tip applicator because it’s so easy to use.
Smoky Extravagant Mascara is a precision mascara that adds volume, length, and curl. As you can see, the wand is freaking huge! I love this type of wand because the tip is so tiny it can really get in the bottom lashes and the baby fine lashes on top and work its magic. It lengthens and adds volume and for me, it’s perfect for every day. It’s not as dramatic as some mascaras but that’s ok. It does a really nice job and doesn’t clump on me at all. Total win! It’s available in waterproof and regular formulas.
Here are some swatches of the products below. I didn’t put the sheer top coat over the lipstick because I didn’t think it would photograph well that way.
L-R: I-90 Iridescent Pop Purple, ME-50 Metallic Golden Taupe, Aqua Liner 17 Diamond Gray, Aqua Rouge 3 Light Rosewood
