Make Up For Ever #52 Aqua Cream
Make Up For Ever #52 Aqua Cream

Make Up For Ever #52 Aqua Cream ($23.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “blue green shimmer.” It’s a rich, emerald green with a frosted shimmer-sheen finish. Milani Green Safari is a brighter, warmer green. Wet ‘n’ Wild Bright Idea is duller. Wet ‘n’ Wild Earth Looks Small From Down Here is similar but less frosted. Urban Decay Graffiti is comparable but a powder product. Inglot #385 is matte, so it is much darker in appearance.

#52 is very pigmented, but it is also buildable, depending on how much product you apply. It starts off with a creamy, glide-on consistency that remains blendable for fifteen to thirty seconds (so work quickly). Once it sets, it doesn’t budge, smudge, or move–it won’t blend, either, if you wait too long. I recommend applying in thin layers to build up the color to avoid potentially applying too much, because it can sometimes clump in places if applied too heavily (making your eyelids look dry and flaky).  I tested #52 for twelve hours, and I didn’t experience any fading, smudging, or creasing during that time.

It does set quickly, so work one eye at a time and build up the color in layers for best results! It is very pigmented, and it can be used as a cream eyeshadow, eyeliner, or as a base.

  1. That’s the one color I am obsessing over right now. Must grab that asap!

    I’m so tempted to get this but I bought the Icy Mint Color Tattoo by Maybelline and fear the’re too similar – especially since I pretty much only use these as eyeshadow bases.

  3. Yasmin

    Beautiful colour, but i find aqua creams to have a strange scent plus, they are soo hard to work with because they dry so fast.

  4. Oooh Oohh Thanks Christine! I really wanted this, now I can get it since it got your blessing! Phew :)

  5. I love the Aqua Creams! I’m so excited that there are more colors!

  6. I really love this, but I know it’s one of those colors that I will barely use. Dare I say it – but I’ve turned into a neutrals girl.

  7. I went looking for this color at my Sephora but no luck!

  9. Dima Obari

    Hey Christine! Can this be used as a gel liner with an angled brush?

    Maybe using a white base to make the color pop.. would look awesome! xx

  10. So pretty, I’m really lovin that greens are in season! I’m gonna check this out right now :)

  11. I was going to say this reminds me of Urban Decay Graffiti!

  12. What a beautiful shade. I know exactly what you mean about the texture, if you applied products like these too heavily, too

  14. rachel

    This color is gorgeous :D , I´m in love with it I would love to buy it.

  16. I have green eyes so I tend to avoid green products. Really love the sheen of this one though!
