It was blissfully overcast today (we’ve had a never ending slew of scorching hot weather), so I went dark and dramatic for this FOTD. I dug into my Make Up For Ever Black Tango Palette to get the job done.

Make Up For Ever BLACK TANGO Palette

This turned out to be about as good as I expected it would. When I first heard about the Black Tango Palette, I wondered how MUFE would keep the Aqua Creams from drying out. Their solution: to put them in their own little pots, within a palette.

The creams are a black based burgundy, green and blue, and an ivory cream. What I was impressed by, is the fact that the shimmer is IN the cream. It’s distinct and subtle all at once. With the exception of the ivory, all of the creams behave and move like traditional MUFE Aqua Creams. I found the ivory formula a bit lacking. It skipped on the swatch, and didn’t hold up well without major blending.

That’s one swipe, using just my fingers. Even though the first three are black based colors, the intended shade comes through effortlessly. Overall, I like the palette. Just not a fan of the ivory color. We’ll see how practical those snap top containers are, for preserving the cream formula as time goes on.
