New from Make Up For Ever is Aqua Matic waterproof eye shadow pencils. Aqua Matic promises to be a long lasting pencil that glides on smoothly using high intensity colors with a creamy texture to provide you with a crease proof, smudge proof look that blends easy.
Application was smooth, creamy and easy to apply. They just glide right on. I experienced no pulling or tugging to apply.
Aqua matic pencils, like all the waterproof eye shadow products before it just don’t do well in the blending category. I applied Aqua Matic and forgot to grab a brush to blend. It took all of 8 seconds to grab and brush before Aqua Matic was no longer able to blend. To be honest you have a little less than 5 seconds after you pull the pencil from your lid to do whatever it is you need to do. Otherwise I suggest you use these as a base or as an eyeliner. Lucky for us they do not crease. The colors are very beautiful, but there is not a lot you can do as far as creating eyeshadow looks with Aqua Matic.
Metallic Golden Taupe is a golden bronze shade with bronze sparkle.
Iridescent Electric Blue is a bright medium toned blue with a silver iridescent sparkle.
Diamond Golden Grey is a deep silvery taupe with multi-color sparkle.
