The Make Up Forever Aqua XL Color Paints are 24-hour wear, waterproof cream eyeshadows. The blendable gel cream glides on smooth and delivers intense pigmentation. Sounds familiar? That’s because it’s the famed MUFE Aqua Creams. Reformulated with brand new packaging. The tubes prevent dry out and are more hygienic since you don’t have to dip your fingers in. Also, there’s now three textures- (i)ridescent, (l)uster & (m)atte, and 20 shades.
The Make Up Forever Aqua XL Color Paints are packaged in squeeze tubes similar to lipgloss. It’s easy to squeeze out a tiny amount, which is perfect since that’s all you need. The gel cream applies smooth and blends well for the most part. Allowing ample time to blend before it dries. Some of the matte shades are a bit patchy, but using a primer helps them to apply smoother. Overall you don’t need to use primer with the Color Paints though. Once dry, they are budge & smudge proof, with no fading or creasing. I still use a primer though as my lids are super oily and I don’t want to chance it.

The Color Paints are extremely versatile and can be used alone, as an eyeshadow base, or even as eyeliner. You can also mix the shades to create new colors. Some of the paints can use another reformulation, but overall I’m extremely impressed. I haven’t worn color shadow in years, but you will catch your girl with these color paints on her lids this Summer. I can’t wait to create some makeup looks!
