Make Up For Ever: Aqua Creams, Aqua Eyes & HD Microfinish Blush

Make Up For Ever
Haul-age!

I ordered these over the summer (I know, great timing right?)... ahhh so behind!
I was able to get a discount through IMATS, so everything pictured below was 40% off for me (nice, huh?).


Aqua Creams
2 Steel
"silver gray shimmer"
Buy it here
$22
This is my favorite because I get to wear it underneath (or all by itself) my taupe-gray eyeshadows.

5 Peach
"peachy pink with gold flecks"
Buy it here
$22
I wear this as a blush and I absolutely love it!
Think NARS "Super Orgasm" in a cream formula.
Warning: If you don't like sparkles, DO NOT buy this.

9 Coral
"bright coral"
Buy it here
$22

13 Warm Beige
"champagne shimmer"
Buy it here
$22
This is a good neutral everyday color, however it has a ton of shimmer- mostly metallic.

15 Taupe
"taupe brown shimmer"
Buy it here
$22
This is definitely more of a warmer brown. I think #2 Steel is more taupe than this.

16 Pink Beige
"pinky beige shimmer"
Buy it here
$22
Like 13 Warm Beige, this is great for everyday wear but it is on the metallic side.

Aqua Eyes
Buy them here
$17
Left to Right:
16L (green), 5L (bronze green), 6L (black purple) and 11L (purple).

HD Microfinish Blush

7 One Too Many
"peachy beige"

Left to Right:
4, 5, 7 and 9
I like the pump-style dispenser... definitely unique for a blusher.
Left to Right:
4 (Walk of Shame), 5 (Nip Slip), 7 (One Too Many) and 9 (In The Spotlight).

Blended Out
4 (Walk of Shame) and 5 (Nip Slip)

7 (One Too Many) and 9 (In The Spotlight)

The Aqua Cream and HD Microfinish Blushes DO NOT budge- they are seriously waterproof and last all day.
It is extremely difficult to find a LONG-LASTING blush. If you are having that issue, then look no further!
For the recent weddings I have been doing makeup for, I've been using Nip Slip and One Too Many HD Microfinish Blushes for brides and bridesmaids. It looks beautiful in pictures and STAYS ON!
For the aqua creams, they are very shimmery so I hope they come out with some matte/flat shades to use as a base or for more mature eyes (where they shimmer is too intense).
Overall, I am very happy with my purchases!!

The following products were purchased by me, with my own money.
I am always 100% honest in my reviews.

Thank you.

Amazing! I want the HD blusher now! If you can choose one, which one would you use as an everyday blusher?
