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.
