MUFE Aqua Creams 5 and 15

I picked up Make Up For Ever's Aqua Cream in #15 at this year's IMATS, but I grabbed #5 last year and forgot to swatch it. So I'm bunching them together in this post! I'll also compare #5 to NARS Orgasm blush.





^ Here's Orgasm and #5 side-by-side. They look similar in their packaging but do swatch a bit differently.

^ As you can see, Orgasm is a bit deeper in color. MUFE #5 is formulated especially for cheeks and lips, but I find it works on the eyes as well. MUFE #15 is formulated for cheeks and eyes. I'm too fair for this to work on my cheeks, but it looks lovely as a base for a smoky brown eye or alone for a wash of color.

These should be blended in quickly as they dry fast. And once they set, these bad boys aren't going anywhere for the rest of the day. I do find them to be drying on the lips, so a lip balm is in order. I feel like using fingers are best with these. They get a little hard in the pot and the heat of your fingers really help loosen it and allow you to blend these easier. So if you hate dipping your fingers into a product you'll probably want to stay away from these.

That is the ONLY reason why I haven't purchased any aqua creams! I've been wanting to try some of them in ages, but I hate dipping my fingers into any kind of makeup products. =(
