Colour of the year: Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in 52

title green

In case you have been living under a rock for the past few months, Pantone, the leading colour authority, announced at the beginning of this year that the Colour of the Year is emerald (my birth stone!).

About a month ago, Make Up For Ever released their summer line which includes a few new Aqua Creams, one of which, number 52, is emerald (well, pearly green lagoon as per Make Up For Ever).

In case you aren’t familiar with MUFE Aqua Creams, they are a cream shadow that is creaseless, waterproof, smudge proof, and just all around amazing.  They are super creamy in the pot but then once they are applied they don’t budge.  They are great as a base or just worn alone.  You can also use them as a cream blush or a lip product, although I don’t really recommend this colour for that use (unless you are into green lips and cheeks).

Although green may be a bold colour, it is perfect for summer.  I have a yellow Aqua Cream and I wore that alone with some waterproof liner and mascara last summer to the pool and pool parties and it was perfect because it stayed as vibrant at the end of the day as it was when I first applied it.

Emerald is so hot for this year and there are so many ways you can wear this.  You can sport it alone or layered under a green shadow or even as a liner.  Plus, the hint of gold shimmer adds that extra bit of glam to this product that it’s certainly eye-catching once applied.

Do you plan on trying Make Up For Ever’s Aqua Cream in 52?  Tried it?  What were your thoughts?

Please note, I was send this product by PR.  All opinions are my own.
