Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Review

What it is:
An ultra-pigmented long-lasting waterproof cream. Highly concentrated in mother-of-pearl pigments, it provides an immediate color intensity with a luminous finish. It's long-lasting formula will not crease or smudge under the most extreme conditions.
Available in 22 shades, the multi-purpose Aqua Cream can be applied on your lips, cheeks and eyes.
Shades for lips & cheeks ~ 5,6,7,8,9,10.
Shades for eyes & cheeks ~ 1,2,3,4,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,22.
I got this in #9 Coral, which I think is the prettiest coral shade ever! It's meant for lips & cheeks.

MUFE Aqua Cream #9 ~ Coral
  • #9 is the prettiest Coral shade ever!
  • Highly pigmented & long-lasting
  • Works well as a blush. Lasts the whole day.
  • It IS waterproof, so I can finally wear blush when going swimming!Yay :)
  • Cute little jar. You have to close it tightly after use so the cream doesn't dry up.
  • Paraben free (+ Dermatologist & Opthalmologist tested)
  • Dries too fast. You have to blend as quickly as possible.
  • A little too dry for lips. MUFE says "hydrate areas before applying Aqua Creams" so I applied lip balm and blotted before applying it ~ but no, still requires a lot of patience to apply it evenly.
  • Great for oily skin type
  • Price. I bought this for approximately Rs.1125 (MUFE, Kuala Lumpur). Sounds about right for a MUFE, but since it won't be something I'd reach for often, I think it's steep.

The mother-of-pearl makes it shimmery, but it's the pretty kind. I love how gorgeous it looks in the light!

Swatches of #9 ~ Blended & Unblended

Application: Best applied with fingers, especially on the lips, coz fingers warm up product and prevents it from drying too quickly. When I don't want to dip my fingers in it, I use a concealer brush (Sigma F70) to apply it on my lips, coz a lip brush is not big enough to cover my lips in very little time before Aqua Cream dries up. For the cheeks, I used my little Bourjois kabuki brush that came with the Mineral Matte Mousse Foundation

The flash washed out the color a bit. Hey it's not my fault that it gets dark so soon this time of year! =D

I don't think MUFE Aqua Cream is a must-have, though I'm glad I've got one. The only things I like about it are: the shade & the fact that it's waterproof. And yeah, I'll only be using it on my cheeks.

  1. You look so beautiful!
    Thank you for the review because I honestly had no idea what these were meant for. The coral color you got looks wonderful! I'll have to buy it come Spring, once I get a little tan again. I'm pretty pale at the moment!

  2. thats a very pretty color :D, lovely application though :) im sure it sould hav looked better w/o the flash ;)

  3. I really wanted these when they first came out, but I am glad I didnt' get them because I would have gotten these in bulk. This color is really pretty, maybe I'll pick *only one* of these when I have more money. haha

  7. Thanks for this review!! I know it sounds stupid but I just knew that this product exist! XD
    I just haven't heard/read about this cream until now, and I always stay away from the MUFE counter when I go to the mall because the SA would be all over you and I prefer not being bothered by SAs when I'm shopping. LOL

    You look gorgeous!
