New Make Up For Ever Colored Aqua Creams- Taste the Cream-Filled Rainbow (Swatches and Review)

It wasn't too long ago that we all heard rumblings of a very new and exciting product from Make Up For Ever via their twitter account. Whisperings of an aqua cream formula in all colors of the rainbow leaked late last summer, much to my frenzied excitement.


To say I was excited about the launch of Aqua Cream in color (COLOR!) is a gross understatement. Aqua black is already one of my most beloved products, and the prospect of having that formula in glorious technicolor left me gleeful, giddy, and altogether desperate to get my hands on them. As soon as I heard these were available in store, I ran, skipped, and subwayed it over to the boutique to go play.


With a stellar assortment of 22 different shades, there is literally a color to satisfy everyone from the neutral Nancies to the bright Bettys. Each shade is deliciously unique, with finishes that range from the metallic, to the shimmering, to the satiny matte. The creams glide on easily, blend dreamily, and do.not.budge once they dry down on the skin. Also, these are incredibly versatile in that all of the shades are lip, face, and eye safe. Yay for multi-taskers!

Enough of the chatter, let's look at the colors (COLORS!).

With Flash:




Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Colors are already available at the Make Up For Ever boutique in NYC, but are also scheduled to launch in store at Sephora around May of this year. While I have your attention, tell which colors you are craving.

I picked up 6 colors. If anyone can guess which shades I picked up, they get a very special prize.

SilhouetteScreams said...

At first my eye was drawn to the dark emerald green, the royal purple and the brighter blue, but theyre ALL so damn pretty!

Krasey Beauty said...

Jillian, these are gorgeous! You are so close! Got 4 of the 6 right. ;)

Krasey Beauty said...

Saadeh, that is a shame. You got 3 of the 6 I got right. :)

I'm sorry, but I can't cp. :( Maybe call the store and they will ship to you?

Krasey Beauty said...

Yinka, close but not exactly so. I believe these are around $19 or so, but don't quote me on that. Don't have the receipt in front of me at the mo. :)

Krasey Beauty said...

Glamour, these can be layered from sheer to opaque. Definitely give them a try ;)

Krasey Beauty said...

Abby, you can use these as liner, base, lipstick, cheekstain. Similar to paint pots more so than fluidline

Krasey Beauty said...

3/6 Sandra ;)

Krasey Beauty said...

Amina, beyond amazing. You are so welcome :)

Krasey Beauty said...

Jenn, yess!! Do you have MUFE in London town?

Krasey Beauty said...

Joyce, it was actually very difficult. I do know that I will pick up several more in the coming weeks though, so its all good :)

Krasey Beauty said...

Lillian, it absolutely is! Cannot wait to create some fiery looks with it :)

Krasey Beauty said...

Swatchaholic, they are most definitely divine
