As if they didn't have enough long-wearing, budge-proof, waterproof, amaze-balls products Make Up For Ever has recently launched the Aqua Matic! The Aqua Matic is a long-lasting, ultra gliding eye shadow pencil in a variety of shades and finishes - from matte to diamond, from beige to black! 10 shades are available in this line and I have 5 to share with you today (and the other 5 coming soon!).
When you shop for these note that even though I purchased the Aqua Matics from Sephora the shade numbers on the packaging don't match up with the shade numbers on their website. The shade numbers do match up perfectly on the Make Up For Ever site, which also has all of the shades available (as some of the shades I purchased at Sephora have now disappeared). In store, you'll be able to find all 10 shades with the appropriate numbers.

- I-22 Iridescent Electric Blue
- ME-50Metallic Golden Taupe
- S-52Satiny Flesh-colored Pink
- S-60Satiny Warm Brown
I found these shades very easy to work with in terms of application and blending. They really do glide on in an even and seamless way. They're very creamy and give you a short amount of time to play around and blend before they set for good. The wear time is fantastic when swatched and also when worn. No secondary base required. I swatched a few of these in Sephora and then tried to remove them with makeup remover, if you follow me on Instagram, you'll have seen they didn't budge after my first or even second attempt. These pencils are self-sharpening.
