Today I am welcoming a new brand to this blog, Make Up For Ever. I recently bought my first batch of MUFE products at IMATS LA (watch the haul here!), because I've always heard amazing things about their products. Their Aqua Creams are some of the most raved about because they are a multi-purpose cream product (much like MAC Paint Pots) that is long-wearing and comes in a variety of colors.
I bought these with the idea of using them as an eyeshadow base. I have quite a few light-toned cream bases, but no dark neutral bases, so I thought these would be perfect. I asked the MUFE artist if these crease on the eyes, and he explained that they are crease-proof because they are silicon based instead of oil based. The silicon is also what gives them their lasting power.
I've been wearing shade 15 as a base the last couple of days and it stays all day and doesn't crease at all. Looks like the MUFE artist was right! The formulation is much thinner than the MAC Paint Pots; Paint Pots are much more thick/pasty to the touch and the Aqua Creams are very silky thin and smooth. They are extremely opaque though! Now for swatches:
Overall, I would highly recommend these if you are looking for a good base and have the money to spend on it. MUFE offers a wider variety of shades in their Aqua Creams compared to most cosmetics companies, so if you have been looking for a certain shade of cream shadow, it's definitely worth checking out.
Now the final question I feel I have to answer: MAC Paint Pots or MUFE Aqua Creams?
Aqua Creams are more opaque, which draws me to them, but as far as which formula I prefer to apply, Paint Pots win. I'll always be a MAC girl at heart. ♥
