Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream get a lot of rave here in the internet and I had to have it and I did. :)
I got them about a week ago from Sephora.
I would say they're pretty nice but I still prefer MAC Paint Pot over this.
Aqua Cream comes in a larger range of shade compare to Paint Pot and the colors are more vibrant. It's also multitasking. Some of them are formulated for Lips and Cheeks where some of them are formulated for Eyes and Cheeks.
They're waterproof and dry up very fast in your skin so it's so hard to blend. It stays on until you remove it with an eye makeup remover.
If you want to wear eyeshadow and blush when go swimming, this might be a good product for you to try.
However, it has a funny chemical smell that I hate esp #11. It's so strong. IDK why.
I find my #5 dries up the fastest.
I used MAC 130 to apply #5 and MAC 242 or my finger to apply the rest of them to my eyes.
My fave are #2 and #5

Enjoy the swatches...


Top-Bottom, L-R, No Flash and Flash :
#2 Steel - #5 Peach - #11 Gold - #13 Warm Beige - #18 Purple


L-R, Flash and No Flash :
#2 Steel - #5 Peach - #11 Gold - #13 Warm Beige - #18 Purple



L-R:
MAC Cash Flow Paint Pot - MUFE Aqua Cream #11

MAC Cash Flow is deeper gold and #11 is more 24k gold color.



L-R:
MUFE Aqua Cream #13 - MAC Hush CCB - Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in r.s.v.p

MAC Hush CCB is more orange compare to #13. Benefit Creaseless Cream Shadow in r.s.v.p might be the perfect dupe for it.


Enjoy the posting... :)
Til my next post... <3>
