New Make Up For Ever Colored Aqua Creams- Taste the Cream-Filled Rainbow (Swatches and Review)

It wasn’t too long ago that we all heard rumblings of a very new and exciting product from Make Up For Ever via their twitter account. Whisperings of an aqua cream formula in all colors of the rainbow leaked late last summer, much to my frenzied excitement.

To say I was excited about the launch of Aqua Cream in color (COLOR!) is a gross understatement. Aqua black is already one of my most beloved products, and the prospect of having that formula in glorious technicolor left me gleeful, giddy, and altogether desperate to get my hands on them. As soon as I heard these were available in store, I ran, skipped, and subwayed it over to the boutique to go play.

With a stellar assortment of 22 different shades, there is literally a color to satisfy everyone from the neutral Nancies to the bright Bettys. Each shade is deliciously unique, with finishes that range from the metallic, to the shimmering, to the satiny matte. The creams glide on easily, blend dreamily, and do.not.budge once they dry down on the skin. Also, these are incredibly versatile in that all of the shades are lip, face, and eye safe. Yay for multi-taskers!

Enough of the chatter, let’s look at the colors (COLORS!).

With Flash:

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Colors are already available at the Make Up For Ever boutique in NYC, but are also scheduled to launch in store at Sephora around May of this year. While I have your attention, tell which colors you are craving.

I picked up 6 colors. If anyone can guess which shades I picked up, they get a very special prize.

    Abby, you can use these as liner, base, lipstick, cheekstain. Similar to paint pots more so than fluidline

    Can you tell me if these are as budge proof as the MUFE aqua creme liners? Both the UD 24/7 and the MUFE aqua eyes pencils smudge very badly on my oily lids but I use the MUFE aqua creme liner all the time and it never moves or melts. I am wondering if these are the same formula as I fear the aqua cremeliners are deing discontinued (at least in all but black) I am looking for a brown or a bronze. thanks

    Michelle, these are more budgeproof than the 24/7 and aqua liners, but not as dry as the original aqua cremes. I am a fan of the original creams as well, but did not like how dry they were. That being said, I would recommend trying at least one of the new aqua cremes. The more matte the shade, the more budgeproof. πŸ™‚

    Hope that helps! Please e-mail me with any other questions you might have.
