In summer, when the temperature raises, we still want out makeup to stay put, the same comes for when we are on a holiday, swimming in the sea or a pool (if you do wear makeup for that).
This is when waterproof and long-lasting makeup is our best friend. Luckily, these days quite a few brands offer a good selection of products to choose from! One of them is Make Up For Ever .
Let’s take a look at their latest seasonal offering - Aqua Summer.
There are quite a few new products from the Aqua range.
Aqua Rouge: a poppy coral that lights up the 2013 look, fuchsia, pomegranate, baby pink, and pale orange.
Aqua Lip: a deep pink pomegranate and a frosty pale pink.
Since yesterday we were talking about some new launches for lips, let’s take a look at some new products for the eyes today.
Clinique Chubby Stick Shadow Tint for Eyes ($16/£16) are finally here! And these are promised to be lightweight, creamy, long-wearing and versatile.
There are twelve shades: nudes and browns, greens, pinks and purples, also blues and grey. I personally like quite a few shades.
Bountiful Beige, Ample Amber, Lots O’Latte, Fuller Fudge, Whopping Willow andRead More
I am a huge fan of cream eye shadows and had these for almost a year already, so I have no idea why I never wrote about them.
But it’s better late than never, so today I want to tell you about Laura Mercier’s Metallic Crème Eye Colour (£ 18.50/$22).
I actually have three shades but, since one (Malachite) was a limited edition shade, will show you only two. I’ve got them in a set, so originally these eye shadows are bigger than those that I have.
Platinum – shimmering champagne, Rose Gold – shimmery rose gold
Light frost eye shadows are a big NO for me, so I was a bit worried about these shades. But Laura Mercier knows how to do a nice light metallic shade without it looking too frosted and glittery. It is shimmery, yes, but it is very wearable and, I could even say - subtle.
The formula is really nice, non-greasy, lightweight and, most importantly, you can get a sheer or full-on effect. I actually love applying these eye shadows with my fingers as such method allows to get a very thin layer which does not sit on top of skin but blends it beautifully.
I love using Platinum andRead More
I have already posted about the new Aqua Shadows from Make Up For Ever but it was deleted when there were some problems. So I thought I’d re-post it. Besides, there are some other new products from the brand available now.
There are twelve shades of Aqua Shadows which retail for £15.95/ $20
The colours available: 0E – matte black, 2E – matte brown, 4E – matte taupe grey, 6E – matte navy blue, 8E – matte green, 20E – pearly taupe, 22E – pearly copper, 24E – pearly pink, 26E – pearly peach, 28E – pearly beige, 30E – pearly pink beige, 32E – pearly white.
As for Aqua Cream (£17.50/$23), there are four new summery shades:
- 23 Acid Green – bright lime green shimmer
- 24 Yellow – matte vibrant yellow
- 25 Pastel Blue – light
I have finally picked up several shades of Maybelline’s Color Tattoo 24HR eye shadows some time ago so I am ready to share my opinion.
I was expecting a lot from this product as everyone raves about the quality, and I was not disappointed.
I have got three shades to begin with: Eternal Gold, Permanent Taupe, and And On Bronze.
They come in a glass jar and, in my opinion, the packaging looks great for the price, not worse than more expensive alternatives. As for the shades, the availability depends on the country. The shades that I have picked are all beautiful:
- Eternal Gold is a very shimmery gold, I’d say that the shimmer in this one is a bit too big for my taste.
- On And On Bronze is a shade that a lot of people should like as it is very wearable metallic bronze. It should look amazing in summer.
- Permanent Taupe, it is the most interesting shade in my opinion. It’s a
