When I think of waterproof makeup I immediately think MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua. Their line of Aqua products is exceptional and never disappoints. I am so excited about these new MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Matic Eye Shadow Pencils ($25 CAD). The MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Creams are a staple for me both personally and professionally. These new Aqua Matic Pencils are like my beloved Aqua Creams in a super quick and easy to use retractable pencil form. Actually I think they exceed the Aqua Creams waterproof and budgeproof capabilities. When trying to remove my comparison swatches even cleansing oil had a hard time erasing the incredible Aqua Matic. Colour me impressed.
There are a total of 10 shades available ranging from neutral to vibrant with either satin, metallic, diamond, or iridescent finishes.. The shade I have is Aqua Matic in Metallic Pinky Beige ME-54. They can be built up for an intense finish or applied more lightly and blended out for a more sheer effect.
They come with a removable sharpener built in to the bottom of the pencil.
It is quite similar to Aqua Cream in 16. The Aqua Cream is just a bit more brown.
For all you Smokey Extravagant Mascara lovers out there you will be delighted to know that there is a new MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Smokey Extravagant Mascara ($28 CAD) being released.
Enjoy the large conical brush, volume, length, and curl you fell in love with in the original formula but in a new waterproof and heat proof version that is perfect for summer.
