FOTD: Brown Pencil Smoke

I wanted to see just how well the new Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow Pencils would perform in a pinch. I tossed together a daytime smoke using just the brown pencil and the peach shimmer one…

MUFE AQUA SHADOW PENCILS (two mattes and a shimmer)

Hey Guys,

Last time I went nuts over the new Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow Pencils… and I promised to go back for the other two mattes. Well, I also ended up with a shimmer. I can’t believe how AWESOME these pencils are. They are ridiculously easy to use. I’m so impressed.

LOVE! I think I may get the rest, just on GP. lol I do like the lavender shimmer and the copper shimmer colors. They are all quite wonderful. Make Up For Ever is head and shoulders above the competition with these pencils. No doubt about it.

Eye Adore: Make Up For Ever Aqua Shadow Pencils

MAKE UP FOR EVER is proof that we should never stop evolving. It’s one thing to try and keep up with the competition, but it’s quite another to surpass the competition quietly and beautifully… and raise the bar all the way around.

While every other brand on the planet was doing shadow pencils, Make Up For Ever was keeping quiet. And then they released their own Shadow Pencils… and showed everyone how it’s done.

The new Aqua Shadow Pencils are more than just smudge proof, crease proof, and saturated with color…

MAKE UP FOR EVER also released five colors, that behave like MATTES.

This is huge. Most shadow pencils (from By Terry to Urban Decay) are shimmer. The trick with shimmer is that it’s a particularly easy finish to work with. You can blend, mix, and make a bunch of mistakes with shimmer… and no one will be the wiser. But mattes are a completely different animal. Mattes show every brush stroke, every smudge… and most notably… every mistake.

When I first saw these shadow pencils, I kind of rolled my eyes. I nearly accused MAKE UP FOR EVER of being behind the 8 ball (because everyone and their cousin already had a shadow pencil collection). But then I tried them. WHEW! They set in about 10 seconds (not kidding) and these pencils DO.NOT.MOVE without the help of a makeup remover. My oily eyelids have never been happier!

In addition to five matte colors (black, brown, grey, green, blue), there are also a collection of shimmer pencils. But I have no interest in them. I moved right in and scooped up three mattes.

I’m going back for the black and brown colors for SURE. But right now, these will tide me over. You can find out more about MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Shadow Pencils HERE.
