Make Up Forever Aqua Cream: Review of shade 6

A few months ago my parents picked this up for me on a trip to the States. I used it fairly soon after getting my hands on it and frankly was unimpressed. A bright pink, promising long lasting wear for cheeks and lips – I tried it on my lips and it looked rubbish. The waterproof texture of it meant that anywhere there was moisture on my lips it didn’t stick – so it basically clung to the dry bits and vanished on the others – as you can imagine, this was not pretty.

But then a while later I decided to give it another go – shame for it to go to waste. Swatching it on the back of my hand I realised it isn’t just a bright pink – but a bright pink with a gorgeous gold shimmer that you can only really see when it’s blended out. In the pictures below you can see it best on the artificial light photo.

So I tried it again on my cheeks and liked it far more. It’s slightly harder to get used to using – the colour is vivid, so you only need the tiniest amount to get a decent colour but when used right it can leave you with beautifully glowy cheeks with a hint of golden highlight. Lovely stuff.

Plus this stuff wont budge.

I’m now kicking myself for not kicking up one of the bronze eye shades when I was in NYC…!

    Loos great. Been wanting to try Make Up For Ever but not had the chance. Definitely on the wish list.

    Looks lovely! I love things with gold shimmers in them, I think they’re really flattering for the ol’ cheekbones 🙂

    I love the colour of this – reminds me of Bourjois Rose D’Or, one of my fave blushers. Did you know MUFE is now available at ? Spotted someone tweeting about it the other day. I’ve never tried any of their products but have heard so many beauty bloggers rave about them I’d love to give them a go!
