Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream ~ Fuchsia

Make Up Forever recently launched some new products called Aqua Creams. They come in an array of shades from everyday neutrals to bold brights. They can be used on they eyes, lips, or cheeks and are waterproof.

I love bright pink lips, so I was really excited to try the new Aqua Cream in Fuchsia.

Some like #7 Fuchsia, are for lips and cheeks only as they are not eye safe.

You can't tell it has a gold shimmer in it till you swipe it.

These are are suppose to be long wearing and waterproof, and it did last all day for me, but that all day wear came at a price. It was SO drying! I mean it really dried out my lips. When I wore it again I added some lip balm before hand to help with the dryness but it still dried out my lips.

I also felt like I had to work quickly with it because it sets/dries quickly.

The consistency didn't even feel creamy to begin with.

I have continued to use it with various lip balms to find one to improve the consistency but it's just not working out.

The color is pretty but I was really disappointed with this one.

I really wanted to love it but I just didn't.

Have you tried these yet? How did it work out for you? Let me know in the comments.

Aww too bad! It's such a gorgeous color! But drying is never a good word for makeup, so I'll save my money and skip these =)

@Lily I know what you mean lol :)

@jellytelly_ri-chan Yeah it's not working out to well.

@Hollywood You should try it. I'm curious to know if the ones intended for the eyes are as drying, I would hope not. :)

@Beautygirl24 Yeah it's too bad I really wanted to like it. :)

I've been wanting to try these, they look so pretty! Too bad that they're drying on the lips....have you tried it as a blush?

I really want to try these. That is such a pretty colour, what a shame that it's so drying. Maybe it will make a nice blush?

@thestartsteam, @Lillian Funny Face, Same problem on the cheeks as well and because it's drying it makes it difficult to blend in on the cheeks.

Woah, this looks crazy beautiful! It's a bummer about the consistency though, it looks like it would make both the prettiest cheek and lip shade xo
