Makeup Forever - Aqua Cream Shadows


I've been a fan of Makeup Forever for several years now.  Their products have never failed to impress me.  In fact, i still remember the very first product i purchased from them.  It was the most stunning eye shadow ever!  Seriously, it was this warm sienna hue (I'm sorry but i can't recall the exact name), and unlike many of my other shadows, i used this one right up until the very end!  Although this was several years ago, i still remember getting a ton of compliments on this shadow.  I have since graced my makeup train case with several more Makeup Forever staple products. 

So a while back, while flipping through the pages of a magazine, i came across Makeup Forever's Aqua Cream shadows.  I was instantly intrigued.  I'd been very eager to try cream shadows, but always feared they'd crease and leave me looking like a train wreck!  So when Makeup Forever sent me these lovely shadows, i was excited to jump on the cream shadow bandwagon!  I'm happy to say, I've converted! 

These shadows are highly pigmented.  They pack on the shimmer and are totally blendable.  The key is to work quickly to achieve your desired look because once it sets...it sets!  I made sure to use these shadows without priming my eyes in order to truly test their longevity.  I can certainly attest to the fact that these babies stayed put the entire day right into the night!  I seriously think that if i didn't remove it before bed, I'd probably wake up with it still in tact!  It's that kind of stay power these stunners possess!  Come to think of it...  if it wasn't for that 'gotta clean your skin properly everyday' thing, it would actually be a total time saver right?  I'm completely smitten with these gorgeous hues and plan on adding a few more to my collection.  I found these to be very user friendly and can instantly take you from blah to hubba hubba in very little time!  Now I'm totally itching to try the rest of the Aqua Cream products, aren't you?

So what do you think?  What are some of your favorite Makeup Forever products?  What can you tell me about the other Aqua Cream products?  Which should i try next?  As always, thank you SO MUCH for reading!  XOXO FMM

  6. This reminds me of Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow .. :) the colors are sooo pretty! But Snow stands out for me as it is very useful for that ulzzang look that is so popular in Asia right now.
