One more store for beauty addicts to spend hours exploring in the heart of Brussels: the Make Up For Ever boutique!
Make Up For Ever has been in Belgium for several years, but the old store was only open to professionals. Aren’t we glad the sizable new boutique and even their academy that trains makeup artists are now located about 3 minutes away from the Central Station, AND it is open to the general public? I know I am!
If you want to see more pictures of the boutique and their regular line-up, please go to the Facebook album. The post today is all about their fall collection Black Tango! I also swatched all the Aqua Shadows for you, so let’s get the party started!
I think this palette of Aqua Creams is pretty nifty. Besides the white with some golden sheen, the other three colors are very smoked-out and good for the cooler seasons. They all swatched well, but from what I remember you have to give the navy blue shade just a bit more time to set, because otherwise you might scrape the color off instead of building it up!
The three nail polishes match the three dark colors in the palette. These rich jewel-toned nail polishes are pretty typically what I’d wear for the colder seasons!
They included a permanent Aqua Creams in the collection #1 (silvery steel) and introduced a new one #27 (true black). #27 is also the new member of the permanent line-up!
Their Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector is also part of the collection. If you take a closer look at the model’s brows in the promotional picture, I’m relatively sure they are done with the eyebrow corrector.
Here you can see all the swatches together and the Waterproof Eyebrow Corrector on the right:
Now here is something I didn’t manage to swatch for you. Aqua Rouge is also coming out this autumn, and from what I can see they look like liquid lipsticks. There is clear gloss on the other end, which I assume is used to seal the colors and give them some shine. There are even coordinating lip liners so you can have very sculpted lips that feather less easily!
Now the Aqua Shadows!
Here you see the shimmery ones: #28E, #32E, #30E, #24E, #26E, #22E, #20E
The matte ones: #8E, #6E, #4E, #2E, #0E
My impression is that the shimmery ones are creamier and glide on more easily than the matte ones. In general the shimmery shades are also colors that are easier to use in my humble opinion. I bought one, and I will be testing it out for you soon!
Here is all of them together:
Yup, my arm is so crazy swatched-up allll the time 😉
What is your experience with MUFE? Have you tried the Aqua Shadows yet? Is there anything in the Black Tango collection that caught your eye?
