Do you know what time it is? Yes, it's taupe time!! Yay! So please allow me to introduce to you a lovely eye product from Make Up For Ever. It is their Aqua Cream #15 and it is fabulous!
Aqua Creams are cream eyeshadows that can be worn alone or as a base under powder shadows. They are waterproof, crease-proof and come in a variety of colors from bright and bold to neutral. Aqua Cream #15 is a gray-brown frost with just a hint of warmth (red). It's creamy, yet firm in texture, can be easily applied with your finger or a synthetic brush and will not budge once it sets. Now everybody's eyelids are different, but I can personally co-sign this claim; with a primer underneath (I use a primer under nearly every eye product), this cream shadow does not crease at all on my oily lids for up to eight hours. Although crease-proof/waterproof, I have not found Aqua Creams to be difficult to remove with regular makeup remover or a little soap and water.
Whether it's a wash of color you're after or a more opaque application, this buildable cream shadow is a wonderful product to have on hand. I've had my Aqua Creams for over a year now and have not experienced them drying out yet. But I'm also careful to keep the hard plastic jars closed tight when not in use, as you should with most cream, water- and gel-based products.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Creams, as well as their other cosmetic products, can be found at Sephora stores or Sephora.com and retail for about $23.
So, yes, MUFE's #15 is a dream cream that you should add to your team, it'll make you scream and cause a scene... and make ya feel like a queen... And... and, umm...well... *sigh* Ok, I'll stop now.
