It wasn’t too long ago that we all heard rumblings of a very new and exciting product from Make Up For Ever via their twitter account. Whisperings of an aqua cream formula in all colors of the rainbow leaked late last summer, much to my frenzied excitement.
To say I was excited about the launch of Aqua Cream in color (COLOR!) is a gross understatement. Aqua black is already one of my most beloved products, and the prospect of having that formula in glorious technicolor left me gleeful, giddy, and altogether desperate to get my hands on them. As soon as I heard these were available in store, I ran, skipped, and subwayed it over to the boutique to go play.
With a stellar assortment of 22 different shades, there is literally a color to satisfy everyone from the neutral Nancies to the bright Bettys. Each shade is deliciously unique, with finishes that range from the metallic, to the shimmering, to the satiny matte. The creams glide on easily, blend dreamily, and do.not.budge once they dry down on the skin. Also, these are incredibly versatile in that all of the shades are lip, face, and eye safe. Yay for multi-taskers!
Enough of the chatter, let’s look at the colors (COLORS!).

Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Colors are already available at the Make Up For Ever boutique in NYC, but are also scheduled to launch in store at Sephora around May of this year. While I have your attention, tell which colors you are craving.
I picked up 6 colors. If anyone can guess which shades I picked up, they get a very special prize.
