Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream #8 Review and Swatches: Totally Budge Proof!

First, I tested Aqua Cream on my lips.  #8 imparts a matte January Jones (ala Mad Men) type of look, but with a modern metallic edge.  Think 2010 style with a hat tip to the 1950s.  It’s an extremely glam shade of red.  Aqua Cream also passes what I refer to as the “Seattle coffee test”.  In fact, the swatch shown in this post was taken AFTER I drank a large cup of morning java.  The color is still flawless!

Available in 21 shades for eyes and cheeks, I am dying to sample more shades from this lineup.  After reviewing swatches of the full collection, numbered 1-18 and 20-22, my curiosity is piqued… what happened to mysterious shade #19?

Retail price is $22 per jar.

  1. #19 isn’t being sold in the US because there’s some ingredient in it (I presume in the dye) that isn’t approved for cosmetic use here. Pity, because it’s an amazing purple!

    I didn’t have as good of an experience with the MUFE Aqua Creams as you did, but seeing that red makes me think maybe I should have another go … 🙂

  2. Thanks for the insight on #19, Voxy! Such a shame that we should miss out on that color…
