MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Color Paint Shadow's Swatches & Giveaway!

PR Sample|Affiliated Links

I am literally so excited to share these new MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua XL Color Paint Shadow's. I am a huge fan of cream eyeshadows, so I was super excited to see that MUFE came out with tons of amazing shades. They have 20 shades and they have three different finishes: matte, satin and shimmer. MUFE sent me all of the shades but instead of swatching them all, I thought I would leave a few to give out to you guys. So at the bottom of this post I will have all the giveaway information. 

The shades I ended up keeping and swatching for you are the following:
  • M-40 (matte yellow)
  • M-20 (matte ultramarine blue)
  • M-16 (matte white)
  • M-52 (matte beige)
  • M-56 (matte taupe)
  • M-10 (matte black)
  • L-22 (lustrous dark blue)
  • L-30 (lustrous khaki) 
  • I-80 (iridescent pink beige) 
  • I-42 (iridescent copper gold)
  • I-50 (iridescent warm beige)
As you can tell I kept a lot of matte shades for myself since I am a huge fan of mattes. I am in love with how pigmented these cream eyeshadows are. After swatching, I ended up liking the look of the lustrous shades and the iridescent shades the best. I think those colors would be perfect for all over the lid.

When you apply these, you can really build them up if you wanted. You can apply a thin layer, let it dry and then add another layer to make the shade look super opaque on the lid. A little bit of product goes a long way with these.

With these cream shadows they are very long lasting. According to MUFE they last up to 24 hours. I haven't tested them out that long because I have never worn makeup before for over 24 hours lol but I did wear them for 8 hours and they didn't smudge or anything on my lids. They were still as pigmented as when I first put them on. They are also super easy to blend out and they do not crease. If you are looking for a smudge proof eyeshadow, this is the product for you!

Each one retails for $25.00 and can be found at
