MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Cream #13

I have a couple of Make Up For Ever products that I received as 500 point perks from Sephora (Smoky Lash mascara, HD powder, Lab Shine lip gloss), but the Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in number 13 is the first MUFE product I've purchased outright.

MUFE describes number 13 as "warm beige" - Sephora describes it as "warm beige - champaigne shimmer" which is probably more apt.  This particular color is formulated for eyes and cheeks (as opposed to lips and cheeks).

As you can see from the swatch on my skintone this shade is mostly shimmer/highlight.  The formula is very long wearing and is waterproof - and even an oil based makeup remover took some doing to completely get rid of it.

The effect is similar to the Urban Decay 24/7 shadow pencil in Sin or the Milani ShadowEyez pencil in Champagne Toast though both of those colors are decidedly pink where this is solidly beige.

I really adore products like this.  They are easy to apply and have great wear times.  The colors are subtle, but the sheen really gives it a dramatic pop.  I wore this all day with no creasing and minimal fading.

MUFE Aqua Creams contain 6 grams of product and retail for $23.

Overall:  10/10
