The new Aqua-Matic pencils from MAKE UP FOR EVER are sooooo worth the hype. Like their matte counterparts, they glide on, set and stay put until you take them off (preferably with an industrial strength make up remover). For the most part, the shimmer colors are pretty standard. Beige, taupe, pink… and then there’s an unforgettable turquoise and an epic lime green.
This one may be my favorite of the bunch. I love the turquoise, but it’s a lot less practical. I can get so much more mileage out of this green. It’s shot through with a massive dose of gold, so it goes warm on my warm skin tone, and it’ll blend out (if you move quickly) to a gorgeous shimmery wash that kind of lights the eye area without being super obvious.
Now I’m a little on the fence about how to keep the tip sharp. There’s a wonky little sharpener on the end of the pencil (that never really works for any brand because it wastes product). But for the moment I don’t care. I’m not going to be drawing precise lines with it. It’ll mostly be used as an eyeshadow.
