What It Is:
Make Up For Ever Summer 2013 Collection*
Why This Should Be in Your Bag:
Summer is a time to experiment with color and Make Up For Ever’s Summer 2013 offerings are sure as heck encouraging that! Bright and punchy shades for eyes and lips lead the way and make me dream of mai-tais on the beach.
How To Use It:
You can create a whole, summery look with a few key pieces from MUFE’s collection. Apply the Aqua Cream in 54 Pearly Mauve all over lids (I prefer to use my finger), and line the top lashline with Aqua Eyes in Lagoon Green. Both lip colors suit this look and apply in two steps: swipe on the colored side and let it dry for a minute, then top with the gloss to seal.
CC Rating: A
My favourite pieces from this collection are the Aqua Rouge in 18 Coral and the Aqua Eyes in 52L Lagoon Green. Coral is the epitome of its name; the perfect mix of orange and pink with a slight shimmer! The Aqua Rouge formula is comfortable but totally budge-proof and it took loads of rubbing to get this one off, after only a few minutes of wear. I’ll be packing this for upcoming conferences where I can’t touch-up my lip color for a few hours. Lagoon Green is such a unique shade! I love wearing it on my bottom liner to update my regular eye looks. I’ve received loads of compliments on this shade and feel like it really pairs well with a neutral eyeshadow look.
Pearly Mauve and Pomegranate Pink are lovely too, however, I found Pearly Mauve to be slightly sheer and Pomegranate Pink is darker than I expected and not really a standout shade for me. These are both personal preferences and have no bearing on the quality of the products (top notch!), so please don’t be discouraged from trying them out.
