Make Up For Ever| Aqua Matic

My loves,

I hope everyone had a lovely Canada Day, for those of you who are Canadian! I know I had an amazing long weekend! I was lucky this past weekend because I actually got to have a 3 day long weekend, every once in a while working in the beauty industry has its perks. I usually don’t get a long weekend because holidays generally land on a Monday and I already have Mondays off.

Moving on, I have a lovely item from Make Up For Ever to share with all of you today. The New Aqua Matic eye shadow pencil. I was very excited when I saw that this lovely eye pencil was coming out and even more thrilled when Make Up For Ever sent me my very own to try! I chose to try the Metallic Pinky Beige shade.

“Simplify your make up routine with an eye-catching new collection of smudge-proof colour that stays put no matter where the day, or night, may take you. The latest addition to MAKE UP FOR EVER’S coveted Aqua family,
Aqua Matic
is a range of long-lasting, glide-on eye shadow pencils created for make up pros and novices alike.”

Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Matic’s ultra-gliding, creamy texture goes on smoothly and blends easily. This glide-on eyeshadow offers crease-proof, high-intensity colour, with a lightweight finish making it a must have for everyone! I’m obsessed. From the moment I swatched this eyeshadow pencil I was hooked. The promise of colour intensity delivers, the pigment is amazing and the staying power is even more incredible.

When it says it locks out water it’s actually crazy impressive. Removing this eyeshadow pencil with even makeup remover was difficult. It’s a perfect makeup tool for the summer if you like to keep some makeup on while you swim, I promise it won’t budge.

Swipe your favorite color across your lid for a quick and easy look, or create a multicolored effect by layering on additional shades and blend with fingers or a brush.”

Now the only thing that I don’t love about these eyeshadow pencils is that they are full of shimmer and glitter. I don’t love shimmer on my eyes but I do have to say it’s growing on me a little. It’s 100% a personally preference but this is definitely a makeup tool I can use in my professional kit. I know all my clients will love this pinky beige eyeshadow pencil. Heck, you might even see me wearing more often than even I would think! It also blends beautifully with powder eyeshadow which is what I did in the above picture with a dark brown in the outer corners.
