Eyes: Makeup Forever Aqua Cream #13

31 May 2012

So as you can probably tell from the top photograph, this Aqua Cream is a much loved and much used item in my make up bag. If I'm honest, I can never be bothered with eye makeup (unless I'm going out, and then I'll wear a smokey eye). I wear glasses 90% of the time, so people don't tend to notice intricate eye makeup, so I don't see the point! Also, anything I do bother to put on usually creases off within the space of an hour anyway.
Makeup Forever Aqua Creams are multipurpose creams designed for a combination of lips, eyes and cheeks. I think this shade is designed for lips and cheeks, but I actually only put it on my eyes. This product is really heavily packed in and comes out as quite a heavy cream, rather than having the mousse like consistency I'd initially expected. I have a feeling this would make a great base to then put shadows over, but I love this just on its own across my lids. This is a gorgeous neutral colour, with a really nice shimmery (although not greasy) finish. I'd recommend this if like me you need something super stubborn which won't crease off. As the name hints at, these are fairly waterproof!
I stupidly swatched this before going to work, and had to really scrub at my hand to get this off, so it definitely has good staying power. Left is straight from the pot, right is heavily blended (how I wear it on my eyes).

For those living in the UK like me, these aqua creams - and all other Makeup Forever products - are available from Makeup Guru Emporium, priced £17.50.

  1. This is one of my favourite eye products, it really does last all day! I use it as a base, or on its own on my eyes. I've also used it as a highlighter for my cheeks- gorg! Haven't yet tried putting it on my lips- can't imagine that looking any good! Great post! xx
