Make Up Forever Aqua Matics

Make Up Forever Aqua MaticsMakeup Forever is a brand which I have found incredibly hard to get a hold of in the UK. When I went to the States, & on one of my many visits to Sephora I picked up some of the stand out Make Up Forever essentials.

Included in my basket were the Make UP Forever Aqua Matics.

The current collection of Aqua Matics consists of 10 waterproof and smudge proof shades.I only picked up two, (the rest of the display was empty, which led me to have high expectations...) and having said that I probably will be ordering more. I think the two shades I did pick up (ME-54 & ME-50) are perhaps the most wearable and versatile of the group.

Priced at $21 in the US, you won't be disappointed with what they deliver, but I have seen very similar products creeping out on the high street which could be dupe-able though!

Described as a long lasting eye shadow in a twist up stick, the product itself really does feel so soft and smooth to apply to your eyelids. You can even blend this out if you like, which would be great to try with one of the more 'electric' colours but just note that you would have to work quite quickly. Once these colours are applied, they are there for the long haul.

Top swatch is ME 50 Metalic Golden Taupe, bottom swatch is ME-54 Metallic Pinky Beige.

The colours are shimmery (this maybe due to these two shades being marketed as 'Metallic') and because they do have quite a bit of glitter within the formula this is all that comes away if you rub over the application area, which can mean glittery fingers but apart from that the pay off is fantastic.

So portable, travel friendly and easy to apply these are a must have for anyone who wants to apply eye makeup without the need for mirrors and fancy brushes to last hour after hour. I have worn these on the water line, as an eye liner on the lid, and all over the lid so far and can't see me getting bored!

  • The staying power is phenomenal, but the colour pigmented.

    These definitely sound worth the price tag! Although very curious how they are compared to the Rimmel Scandal Eyes since they have a similar theme going on. Would also love to see eye looks with these! 🙂
