Now that summer is in full swing, I like to reach for products that are capable of withstanding the heat. Although my face makeup rarely glides off in these circumstances despite my combination skin (I think I've just been lucky in finding great foundations and setting powders), my eyes on the other hand can become quite watery which is definitely not cool on my eye makeup. This brings me to being overjoyed whenever I come across an eye shadow that can put my eye troubles to rest. Insert the new Make Up For Ever Aqua Matic Waterproof Glide-On Eye Shadow in D-12*, a beautiful golden-grey cream pencil with a diamond finish that really lasts.
The color is absolutely stunning and perfect for a night out or a special occasion. Pairing it with a darker shadow such as a brown or black in the crease is perfect to create that smokey metallic glam effect. Despite there being subtle shimmer, I have not experienced any fallout throughout the day - this stuff really stays put! If you are looking for a fuss-free eye shadow that not only delivers great pigmentation but also provides long-lasting results, I say you should definitely give these a try.
The new Aqua Matic range includes 9 other shades, from neutrals to vibrant colours such as black, brown, blue, turquoise, green, taupe, beige, pink, and purple, having either satin, metallic, diamond or iridescent finishes. They will be available starting July 2014 on both Sephora.ca and at Sephora stores across Canada and Make Up For Ever Boutiques and will retail for $25.00.
Are you a fan of cream eye shadow pencils in the summertime like I am?
