Friday Favorite: Make Up Forever Aqua Cream #3

Have you ever put on an eyeshadow and thought… I wish this was more vibrant..? While bright eyeshadows may not be your everyday look (or maybe it is!), it’s always good to have a little secret weapon for when your makeup needs an boost.  Cue, today’s Friday Favorite:

It’s the Make Up Forever Aqua Cream in 3

MUFE says: An ultra-pigmented, long-lasting waterproof cream.  Aqua Cream combines the highest-quality pigments with mother of pearl particles to give immediate rich color payoff with a luminous finish in just one application. It’s long-lasting formulation will not crease or smudge under the most extreme conditions and its creamy and elastic texture allows for easy blending.  $23.00/0.21oz.  Sephora

#3 is described as a “true silver shimmer”

I was skeptical about these cream eyeshadows, especially because of the hefty price tag.  It’s a little more than $1 an ounce!  However, it’s worth every penny.  Why?

  • It lives up to every claim.
  • A little bit goes a long way.
  • It doesn’t dry up over time (like some MAC Paint Pots).
  • You don’t need to use an eyeshadow primer with it, this IS a primer.

See how it gives eyeshadow that extra “boost?”  This is a true silver color, so it has a cooler, blue-based tone.  When eyeshadow is applied over it, it makes it “pop” with a hint of shimmer.  Even if the silver isn’t your style, I do recommend checking out the MUFE Aqua Creams, they have 20 colors that range from neutrals to bright tones.

Have you used the MUFE Aqua Creams?  What do you think of them?

Drink water. Wear SPF.
