Make Up For Ever I-22 Aqua Matic ($21.00 for 0.049 oz.) is described as an "iridescent electric blue." It's a medium-dark, brightened blue with a soft sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single pass, and it was buildable to mostly opaque color coverage. This shade creased after six hours on me, and it faded within six hours when I tried to wear it as an eyeliner as well. It was difficult to blend and apply. Dior Rivage #5 (LE) is darker, cooler-toned. CoverGirl Sapphire Flare (315) (LE, $4.99) is lighter, powder. Urban Decay Radium (P, $18.00) is powder. NYX Kiss in Casablanca (P, $4.50) is powder, more muted. Buxom Bulldog (P, $18.00) is more muted. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
This eye shadow pencil glides on and stays put. The unbelievably blendable texture includes silica, so it applies effortlessly onto the eyelid and won’t transfer. This highly-pigmented, waterproof, smudge-free shadow delivers immediate, intense color payoff. A retractable twist-up mechanism allows for quick and mistake-free application, and a sharpener makes it convenient to take this product to go for touchups.
