I am always wary of eye makeup that claims to be “smudge-proof, sweat-proof, and meltproof.” Most still smudge in water, and the ones that don’t stay on for days, unless you scrub the life out of that delicate skin around the eyes. So I was pleasantly surprised by Make Up Forever‘s Professional Aqua Shadow. What do you know? It delivers as promised! It stays on as long as you want it to yet washes off easily with an oil-based make up remover (and I tested with black). The silica powder in the formula makes it glide on effortlessly and blend easily. I especially like the pearly finish. There are 12 colors to choose from; I am using 30E, a gorgeous glow of pearly pink beige. And it’s great to use with bronzes for that perfect sun-kissed glow.
At Sephora for $20.
