When it comes to eyeshadow creams and liquid liners, I like to own every colour they could possibly be made in. They enhance any makeup look and make them look much more pigmented and vibrant. Make Up For Ever is one of the brands that knows how to deliver all of the colours of the rainbow and the quality of the products themselves barely ever disappoint. I just received two new products in shades that I oddly don’t have enough of in my stash from their Aqua XL Color Paint Shadow and Aqua XL Ink Liner collections!
The new Aqua XL Color Paint Shadow‘s ($31 / 4.8 ml / Available now at Sephora) have 24-hr wear in a waterproof cream shadow formula that’s easy to blend and provides highly pigmented colour. Smudge-proof and crease-resistant, the shadows are enriched with mango butter to give your skin nourishing hydration so that your lids feel comfortable all day long. The collection comes in 20 shades that range from neutrals to bright tones that come in iridescent, matte and lustrous finishes.
The Aqua XL Ink Liner‘s ($30 / 1.7 ml / Available now at Sephora) are 24-hr, waterproof liquid liners that offer very pigmented colour and ultra-fine precision. It’s smudge, transfer and fade-proof with an ultra-fine felt tip and comes in 15 shades that offer matte, lustrous, diamond and metallic finishes.
My Glittery Thoughts:
I feel like these products would’ve been absolutely perfect to wear for Canada Day but aside from that they are just awesome! The cream shadow is very easy to work with and blend out and really makes my red eyeshadows POP! I have struggled to find really pigmented white liquid liners but this one definitely impresses with its bright and very opaque whiteness. I really like cream eyeshadows as eyeshadow bases and making powder shadows pop that much more and now I know that I really need to get my hands on more of these babies. The same goes for the white liner because I’ve been loving using them to define my crease and to do fun things with my winged liner and this packs the punch I’ve been looking for. The longevity of the cream shadow and ink liner are also amazing and I don’t find them to crack or crease like other products have. If you appreciate bold, vibrant colours and enjoy being creative with your makeup or just want cream shadows and liners that are really waterproof, then you have to check out these collections 🙂
