Long Wear Shadows For Summer: New Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Color Paint Shadows with Swatches

| , ,

As an oily-skinned gal, summer makeup comes with its own set of challenges. Mainly how the heck is anything going to stay on my face?! Last summer I wore the heck out of this cream shadow that lasts all day without creasing, and was looking for new ones to try this year. These MUFE Aqua XL Color Paints fit the bill perfectly!
From left to right: M-52, I-50, I-42, I-80, L-54, M-56, L-30
There are a ton of colors in this collection including super bright and fun summer colors, but you know I immediately grabbed for all the neutrals when opening the box MUFE sent me. And there are sooooo many good ones both in matte and shimmer formulas. I have been using the matte bone colored shade as an eyeshadow base mostly and the dark brown as a liner, but the shimmer colors are best used on the lid alone. And if you are wondering if these are long wearing, let me just tell you that after these swatches I had to scrubbbbbbb to get them off. I find they remove best with a good cleansing oil when on the eyes, so just know that a basic cream or gel cleanser will do nothing for them. Ha! The pigmentation is nice and even and they blend beautifully. The packaging is always a tad underwhelming with MUFE but thankfully what’s inside doesn’t disappoint.

Wander Beauty Cream Eyeshadows

| , ,

Cream shadows can be hit or miss in my opinion. The really creamy ones can be amazing to blend but the tiniest bit of oil can make them crease like crazy. And then there are the ones that may last forever on the lid, but dry before you even finish blending. Eek! These new cream eyeshadows from Wander Beauty fall somewhere in between. They swatch beautifully, deposit an even amount of color and allow enough time to blend thoroughly before drying down to a creaseless finish.
I instantly fell in love with Bronze because it’s gives depth to a look without needing multiple colors. It actually has a slightly thicker texture which I like. I can apply this with my fingers but prefer using a brush to blend. While it does dry down quickly, I still have time to move it around and get a finished look. Champagne is thinner in texture but after wearing it a few times, I enjoy that it looks more like glowing skin on the lids rather than a shimmer shadow. And because the color is so delicate and the formula is so sheer, I have been tempted to tap it onto my cheekbones for a warm glow.
There are 4 shades to this range, and all are wearable and suitable for any skin tone and any occasion.
