Hello everyone,

Today I thought I would talk about two products from MAKE UP FOR EVER that I really love. The first one is the aqua shadow in the color 22E  and the other one is the aqua lips 8c.


Last year I was roaming around in Sephora with my best friend and I came up with this eyeshadow crayon in the section with the offers. Apparently the product was discontinued  and they wanted to get rid of them so they had a ridiculous discount. Originally these crayons costed about 20 € and I got it for 6€. Bargain!! The color is a very beautiful coppery bronzy gold (great description) that suits everyone and especially light eyes (which I totally don’t have) because it makes a contrast and makes them pop.  It doesn’t have the creamiest formula for a cream eyeshadow and you have to blend it very fast because it sets almost immediately and, well, that is exactly the reason why I love it. As a girl with insanely oily eyelids that eat eyeshadows this is a miracle. I can wear it all day and I don’t have to worry about it creasing. That’s why I like to use it as an eyeshadow base, as well. I find that the best way to apply this by warming it up on my finger and then rub it on my eyelids. The biggest disadvantage is that now they are going to be very hard to find, but they are replaced with some automatic pencils.


This winter one of my cousins got gifted a perfume from Sephora that she didn’t like and because she didn’t need any beauty products,  she gave it to me to exchange it with whatever I liked. One of the products that I bought was this lip liner cause I was in a desperate need of some kind of red lipstick. I decided to go for a lip liner because I thought that lip liners  last better than lipsticks. The color is cool toned red that really brightens up my face. It is very matte, so it can accentuate the dry patches on the lips, but it lasts for ages through eating and drinking. Surprisingly is not as drying as I thought it would be, although it is still pretty dry. But for me it is definitely a keeper.


All in all, I am very happy with both of the products that I have used from the brand, so I’m quite excited to use other ones from the line. I am eyeing the eyeliners, but do you have any other recommendations?
