I have been trying to write this post for no less than a month, but after being distracted by work and vacation I am finally buckling down to do it! Make Up For Ever Canada released 3 new Aqua Cream shadows for their summer collection, and I was fortunate enough to receive #54 to test which is right up my alley as I love lilacs and pinks (and when I don’t wear neutrals, they are my default ‘go-to’ colours since I wear a lot of lilac… and pink).
I’ve waxed poetic about why I love these eyeshadows before, but I love #54 as it seems to have a more duochrome finish than #19 and gives new dimension under powder eyeshadows. Plus it looks so pretty in the pot!
The iridescent finish means that #54 is not as opaque as some of the other purples in the MUFE Aqua Cream line, but at the same time, it was also much more sparkly than I anticipated! Like the rest of its line, this shadow starts out creamy but dries down fast so apply and blend quickly! I wore this on the hottest day of the year over the MUFE Eye Primer and it lasted through sweat and 12 hours of wear with no creasing, and just a bit of fading at the edges.
Made this a MUFE from the bottom up day 🙂
