It’s 7 o’clock in the morning, your alarm rings. You stay in bed just a little longer, it’s warm and nice and cosy and you want to see how your beautiful dream ends…just 5 more minutes. You finally wake up at 7:45 with just 15 more minutes to go. Oh no! No eye makeup today then. Or, you can do something quick! And for that occasion I suggest you try the Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow!

Here are the swatches:

  • 20E Pearly Taupe is a greyish taupe with a touch of pink,
  • 22E Pearly Copper is a warm copper shade,
  • 32E Pearly White is a yellowish white.

My Opinion:

These eye shadow pencils are extremely long-lasting. They last full 8 hours and even longer with no base at all! The shades are pigmented. The quality of the pencils itself is good, the texture is soft, but not too buttery. They apply nicely and blend easily. You can create an eye look within a couple of minutes, they are really easy to use and will be a perfect solution for the ladies that want to spare time in the morning! Also, you can take them in your purse to do a touch up later if you want to/apply them later in the day. Perfect!

Overall Note: A.

To show you how easy it is to work with the Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow here I just applied the pencils directly onto the eyelids. I applied 2oE in the centers of the eyelids and on the lower lash line, 22E in the outer eye corners and 32E in the inner eye corners.

The only thing you have to do after that is blend it out (I did that just using my fingers) and apply some mascara. Done!

The makeup will stay that way for the whole day! I find the Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow than some eye shadows, for example.
