Mini Make Up For Ever Review: Aqua XL Color Paint Shadow & Aqua XL Ink Liner

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!

Mini Make Up For Ever Review: Aqua XL Color Paint Shadow & Aqua XL Ink Liner

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 πŸ™‚

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Skin Booster Review

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Skin Booster Review

More and more makeup brands are expanding their product lines into skincare. It makes sense since, in order to get your makeup to look amazing, you have to use the right skincare products beforehand. Make Up For Ever is one of the latest makeup brands to do that with their new Ultra HD Skin Booster.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Skin Booster ReviewThe Ultra HD Skin Booster is a hydrating face serum gives your skin a plumped look while hydrating to smooth the appearance of fine lines and, of course, prepping the skin for makeup. The formula is rich in hyaluronic acid and argan oil extract to instantly hydrate your skin. It comes with an expertly designed dropper applicator that provides just the right amount of products. Your skin will be left looking smooth and illuminated, and the perfect canvas for makeup application.

Price: $51 / 12 ml / Available now at Sephora

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Skin Booster ReviewMy Glittery Thoughts:

I think it’s a genius idea for makeup brands to add more skincare to their lines. They know what would make their makeup shine even brighter and look even better so I hope this is only the first of many skincare products from Make Up For Ever. The serum is very lightweight and sinks into the skin perfectly. I think it performs the best on drier skin and might feel like too much for someone who’s oily. The only issue I have with it is its size. I’m very particular when using it because it contains only 12 ml, so I try to only use it for when I really need my makeup to look bomb. Other than that, I love how it makes the dryness around my nose that’s due to allergies go away so the foundation I put on goes on smoothly and doesn’t enhance any dryness. If you don’t mind the size and are looking for something to hydrate and smooth out your skin so your makeup looks amazing, I would definitely check out the Ultra HD Skin Booster!

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Loose Powder vs. HD Microfinish Powder

MUFE, Review
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Loose Powder vs. HD Microfinish Powder

Not long ago, Make Up For Ever ramped up their foundation and concealer by taking it to the next level with a new and improved line called Ultra HD. They’ve now brought more products over into the fold with an Ultra HD Pressed Powder and now, an old favourite of mine, Ultra HD Loose Powder. When I got my hands on it, I just had to see how it compared to the original HD Microfinish Powder.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Loose Powder vs. HD Microfinish PowderFirst things first, let’s start with the new Ultra HD Loose Powder! It’s revamped and now more transparent, weightless and blurring than it’s ever been. It’s a silica and silicon based formula that delivers a naturally matte, light-diffusing effect, while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and pores. Formulated to look invisible under Ultra HD 4K technology and meet the demands of the next generation of digital devices , it’s perfect on every skintone and non-drying for a invisible, flawless finish in any light.

Price: $44 / 8.5 g / Available now at Sephora

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Loose Powder vs. HD Microfinish PowderFrom L-R: Ultra HD Loose Powder & HD Microfinish Powder

The original HD Microfinish Powder is made of 100% silica and talc-free. It also has a lightweight, ultra-fine, silky texture and is a universal shade that can be worn alone or over makeup for a radiant, matte finish. The HD Microfinish Powder can be quite messy because most of the powder sits above the sifter opening so they changed it by making the sifter out of this flexible material that controls the flow of powder coming out so you don’t get too much. After swatching both, you can definitely see a difference in smoothness and texture. The Ultra HD is a bit more finely milled and smoother compared to the HD. When I applied both on my face, the Ultra HD one seemed to look a bit smoother and less noticeable compared to the HD but both really helped hold up my makeup’s lasting power. I’ve loved the original for so long and didn’t really think they could make it any better but somehow they did. Even though I will still use up my HD Microfinish Powder (which lasts me FOREVER), I like having the Ultra HD Loose Powder around for those days when I want to look extra flawless.
