Review: *NEW* Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow Crayon

Happy Friday, Makeup Geeks!

I hope you all are having a great month and are staying cool out there (was almost 100 degrees today in California!)

Anyways, I bought some of these Aqua Shadow Crayons while in school and wanted to review them for you as they are fairly new.

What I love:

  • The ease of use.  Just one swipe and a little smudge will get you a fast smokey eye.
  • The staying power.  Once these set (after about 30 seconds), you have a waterproof makeup look for a hot day :)
  • The pigmentation.  The matte ones especially have intense colors- my favorite is the gray and green ones
  • The blendability.  I love how you have a bit of time to blend out the edges.  They’re not too sticky or dry
  • The finish.   I love matte finish products as I like to choose where I add the shimmer.  I just wish there were more than 5 matte colors…

What I don’t like:

  • The price is a bit steep for what they are
  • There’s not enough colors- Makeup Forever needs a purple, pink, and a true gold
  • Texture:  5 out 5
  • Longevity: 5 out of 5
  • Packaging: 5 out of 5
  • Pigmentation: 5 out of 5
  • Price:  3 out of 5
  • Quality:  4 out of 5
  • Would I buy again?  A few of the colors

Price:   $20
