Make Up For Ever #54 Aqua Cream
Make Up For Ever #54 Aqua Cream

Make Up For Ever #54 Aqua Cream ($23.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “lilac shimmer.” It’s a medium lavender purple with red undertones and a frosted finish. Guerlain Attrape-Coeur #4 is pinker. Giorgio Armani #1 Spring 2012 is lighter and a powder. Tarina Tarantino Violet Storm is a powder product but similar in color.

Purples can be tricky, but Make Up For Ever managed to produce a lavender that applies fully opaque with little effort. It’s nicely pigmented, buildable, and blendable–so long as you work quickly as the Aqua Cream formula, while it lasts and lasts, sets within thirty seconds (or less) and once set, does not want to move. Sometimes I find applying a thin layer, lightly blending the edges, and then working with other colors in the same fashion is more practical; and after I’ve gotten the basic shape and color scheme going, I apply another thin layer on on the colors I want more opaque. #54 wore like iron for twelve hours; no creasing, smudging, budging, or fading during the entire time I tested it.

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. Hey there Christine, can I ask how fast this sets? Too fast won’t work for me as I just don’t have the skills…

  2. Very cute! I expected this to be like Lavish Lavender from the new Maybelline Color Tattoo collection, but it’s definitely different!

  3. Melissa

    Such gorgeous colors! Love it!! :D I can see myself wearing these in the summer, especially the teal colors.

  4. Ah, there’s that eye look again :-D I love it.

  5. Andrea

    Is this a bit duochrome? It appears to be in the swatch picture, not sure if it’s just the lighting.

    Ooh Ooh.

    It looks like cream version of UD’s Morphine, if thinly applied.

    That is such a good think that I will definitely be buying this.

    Nice, how does it compare to Benefit’s “Always a Bridesmaid” (if you’ve sampled that shade before) :)

  8. Every time I go into the sephora inside jcpenney, I drool over this shade.

  9. I love the color and I’m glad to see that Tarina Tarantino has a close dupe :)
