Hello, again!! Before I get into the post, I want to apologize for the absence. We had some construction going on in the house and the computer was down for a few days. I was able to get to my mother in laws in the morning and keep up with the press releases (which is why that's all you've been seeing for a few days) but all of my pics and such were on my personal computer. The first day of work I had posts scheduled. I didn't do anything longer because it was only supposed to take a day. We're, of course, on day 4!
The comp is back up now, hopefully for good! For the first post back I've got another Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream, this time in my favorite eye color - TAUPE!
What the Sephora website has to say about Aqua Cream:

An ultra-pigmented, long-lasting waterproof cream.
What it does:
Aqua Cream combines the highest-quality pigments with mother of pearl particles to give immediate rich color payoff with a luminous finish in just one application. It’s long-lasting formulation will not crease or smudge under the most extreme conditions and its creamy and elastic texture allows for easy blending.

Taupe(taupe brown shimmer) is a very brown taupe and looks gorgeous on. It's number is 15, and in the listing that states that it's formulated for eyes and cheeks. This isn't a shade I'd personally put on my cheeks, though I guess darker skin tones could contour? (Please let me know in the comments how you would use this on your cheeks!). On the eyes, Taupe is gorgeous. I wore it the other day under the Dior Granville Garden Clutch and it was really understated and nice.
By request ;) here is an eye look using MUFE Taupe Aqua Cream
I applied MUFE Taupe Aqua Cream all over the lid and through the crease as my base. For shadows, I used the shades from the Dior Granville Garden Clutch. I applied the pink shade all over the lid, the brown shade in the crease, above the crease and outer V, and the white shade in the inner corner and to highlight. The liner is MAC Added Goodness and the mascara is Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill.
If you want to check out a bright look, I did swatches and a tutorial of #10 Orange Aqua Cream last week.
Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream retails for $22.00 and is available at Sephora.
