MUFE Aqua Cream.Review.

MakeUp Forever Aqua Cream #13 Warm Beige is one of my must-have products of this year. It is a golden beige shade with a rich metallic finish, suitable to a lot - if not every - skin tone.
It has a nice creamy consistency which goes on to your lids very smoothly, but keep in mind that once it's on you have very little time to blend it properly, as it dries quite quickly. That's why I prefer to apply it with my fingers, as I feel it's the easiest and quickest way to work the product into your skin, but feel free to use a blending brush if you wish.
It claims to be waterproof and long-wearing, and I'd say it is very true. Once it's set, it's definitely going to stay in place the whole day. Be careful though, because I've noticed that if you apply too much product it will eventually crease as any other cream eyeshadow.
It is the perfect shade to wear on its own all over the lid, for an easy everyday look, or as a luminous base to create more shimmery and intense looks.
My makeup look featuring MUFE #13 Aqua Cream:


What else did I use.
Sleek i-divine palette in Storm. I used a light golden shade all over the lid (on top of the MUFE aqua cream), a light matte brown in the crease and a bronze-coppery colour in the outer corner. A bit of the black and the bronze also on the lower lash-line. Black eyeliner pencil in the water line and plenty of mascara, as always.

Some extra info.
When I first purchased this product I thought it was very similar to Bare Study paintpot by MAC, but when I went home I swatched them side by side and realized that I was wrong. For the sake of this review, I'll post the pictures I took.

MUFE Aqua Cream #13, MAC Bare Study Paintpot

As you can see from the swatches above, #13 is way more intense and richer than Bare Study. Plus, #13 is more on the golden side whereas Bare Study is more like a champaigne/rosy colour. They are very different in consistency too. MAC cream eyeshadow is less smooth and it dries within a few months (you can still use it, but you have to warm the product up with your finger before placing it onto your lid), while MUFE aqua cream is way smoother, it has like a velvet consistency and it seems not to dry out - at least for now.
