*** MAKE UP FOR EVER AQUA SHADOWS REVIEW - WATERPROOF YOUR EYES FOR SPRING SUMMER 2012 ***

Make Up For Ever Spring/Summer 2012 Aqua Shadows
The hunt for waterproof, long lasting eye makeup brings me to the new Make Up For Ever additions to their Aqua line. Check out their 12 new offerings ~ B+
If long lasting, waterproof proof eye makeup is one of your top priorities, the newest Make Up For Ever collection, Aqua Shadows is sure to please - with a little tweaking....
MY REVIEW ~ I found these fairly easy to apply and blend before they became "set". These performed best for me up to 5 hours without creasing. The matte are truly matte and highly pigmented - however, I think setting these with shadow will improve their wearability. The pearl shades are medium pigmented and very buildable - with a beautiful sheen - these tend to last longer than the matte shadows in my view and are very wearable day and night. I recommend these for summer heat waves, swimming, high humidity days and hot sultry evenings dancing the night away. B+
Having worked on several underwater fashion shoots myself, I can testify to their lasting ability - within the limits I described. Useful in humidity and high heat environments - and the color payoff is great.
