Two Ways to Win $110 in Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Shadows

Published in: Just For Fun

  • The giveaway is now closed. Congrats, Sunday! Before you go, check the home page for ongoing giveaways.

Remember that Sex and the City episode when Carrie takes a dive on the runway at the fashion show? She had on jeweled underwear and a pair of sky high stilettos. Well, I had a nightmare where I did the same thing, except that I was wearing a beaded tie-dye bikini and really ugly clogs (?). Midair, as I fell ungracefully toward the folks sitting in the front row, I distinctly remember thinking, “Aww, hell… at least my eye makeup looks cute.”


I’ll just leave the swimsuit modeling to the professionals, like the ones strutting the runways at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week: Swim in Miami right now.

Have you been following any of the shows? The festivities, which focus on beach garb and swimwear, kicked off on Thursday and run through this weekend.

For the second year in a row, Make Up For Ever is sponsoring the makeup for the shows and making sure the models look fly on the catwalk. There’s been no shortage of Aqua Cream shadows this year, which, by the way, I love (here’s my review).

Aqua Creams made an appearance at last night’s Delores Cortes show, where the makeup artists banged out this smoldering greenish gold eye…

If you feel like giving it a try with your very own Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream Shadows (bikini and high heels are totally optional, LOL!), keep reading, boo!

Giveaway Time

To cheer Mercedes Benz Fashion Week: Swim, Make Up For Ever cooked up a fabulous prize package for y’all featuring FIVE of the Aqua Creams (a $110 value).

  2. i love cream shadows because they apply so easily! especially for the “application challenged” like me. unfortunately, i don’t use them often because i find they don’t stay put as long as i would like. that’s why i’m so excited to try the aqua cream shadows because i’ve heard such great things about its staying power!

They were fuzzy beasts before and now they are so elegant and ‘upper class.’ I feel they’re too fancy for me haha. They even have a blunt cut on the ears. How chic? They’re so much cooler now its been like 100 degrees here. Sorry im ranting :/ They’re a mix between a lhaso apso and a bichon frise.. so la-chons 🙂

    I have a fascination with all things “Aqua.” Former Aquafitness instructor; bathing suit hoarder. Make Up Forever addict.

    Favourite swimsuit? Let’s see, I have over a dozen… My blue Land’s End bikini that looks boring on the rack but hugs and perks in all the right places and looks (vintage pin-up) hot. Or my mix and match white top and pirate tattoo bottoms (YAR!) Or that khaki halter-top bikini that flatters my olive complexion and makes me look like a lean, mean sunbathing machine.

    I can’t pick a fave. It’s like Make Up For Ever’s Aqua creams: I love them all.

    I love cream shadows because my make up turns out smooth and more natural; and it doesn’t make my skin look too dry or flaky. Plus I can even apply it with my fingers when I’m in a rush!

All silvery & smoky grays with a bit of color for the lips & cheeks. <3 However, if it is a good dream (and with those colors, I think it must be) then I would *not* be wearing a bathing suit–especially not a bikini!

  89. Victoria says:

    I love the cream eye shadows because they give different reflections of the powder shadows. In addition also often use alone if I go in a hurry. A quick look!


  90. Faustina says:

    i LOVE cream shadows. you can use them alone for a sheer, subtle look, or as a base for powder eyeshadows when you want your look to be more intense…the colors in the giveaway are great…but enough about makeup, something random…well tonight i went to a wedding of a friend of mine, and managed to get socked in the eye…let’s cross our fingers for no black eye tomorrow! 🙂

    Just got back from the beach, and I’m glad to be home in that way you are at the end of every vacation. But I now have a new Master Plan: hubby needs a job where he can work from home so we can move to the beach! 😀

    Hope all is well, Karen? I haven’t caught up on my Google Reader and look forward to seeing what I’ve missed from the blog.

    *fingers crossed for winning*

  134. Debby says:

    I have about 5 swimsuits, but 4 of them are bikinis and even though they are really cute, I can’t wear them when I go to family gatherings. Even though I’m in my mid-20s, my mom thinks bikinis aren’t appropriate! So I keep a tankini as well, and it’s pretty cute – blue and yellow with a sunset motif. It’s not as cute as my pink and white bikini, though…

    I love cream shadows sooooo much! My love affair started with Benefit Creaseless Creams, which I discovered through this site. I just love finger application. I’ve been particularly interested in these since reading your review, I love the idea of waterproof, long-lasting creams, and I went to Sephora to play with all the pretty colors recently. But sadly, went home empty handed because I just have too many expenses coming my way. I’d be freaking psyched if I won!

Since summer is almost halfway through I’m planning to save up to buy one for myself for the next summer season.

    my favorite bathing suit was a white bikini picked up in Rio in 1984 (when i had the bod to wear it). It had no ties or clasps, just pulled on. so cute, comfortable, and not too teeny surprisingly. The downside? Oh yeah it got wet and became totally see thru!!!!!! I remember my friend gave me her track shorts to wear. that was a look to forget. But that bikini sure looked good on dry land!!!

    I went to Buca di Beppo for dinner! YUM! I started off by sharing a plate of crispy, crunchy, calamari with a side of spicy tomato sauce. Mmmm, my favorite dish. As always, after the appetizer I am soo full! But, once the waitress placed before me the baked stuffed shells, my mouth watered. I took my first bite-a delish shell stuffed with 5 cheeses, spinach, Italiano spices-ahhh. Then I took another bite, and another, and another!! Before I knew it, I devoured 3 shells, but was only half way done. I gulped down the icy cold water, and wiped my mouth clean. And of course I took the leftovers home, and will be finishing them today for lunch! (:

I hate driving – yet I am so depended on it! On a positive note, I got a really cute bikini and curling iron the other day. At least, I will look pretty when I fail my G driver’s test (No, I will not wear bikini to the test, or should I? Brownie Points?).

    My favorite bathing suit is a new teal colored two piece I bought last year. I have always had a problem finding one where the top and bottom both fit. Last year I lost some weight and then went shopping and found this fabulous 2 piece bathing suit and the bottoms actually fit properly and cover nicely, not too skimpy! Love it so much and wear it mostly in the yard during the summer. Will not wear it to the pool-the chlorine will damage it!

    I love that peach color, I almost _have_ to have it.

  272. Tracy says:

    I have one MUFE Aqua Cream eyeshadow and it’s fantastic! It’s such an easy no brainer eyeshadow that lasts all day. I’d love to try more!

    my fav swimsuit is a 2 piece by Roxy. tan background with different colored stripes

  276. Katie says:

    My favorite suit is a mix and match of a black string bikini top and red Roxy board shorts. I tube, waterski, and wakeboard, so I need bottoms that are sturdy and don’t slip off for some embarressing moments! 🙂 Board shorts are where it’s at!

    Dude, I think we have the same green/white roxy bikini. I wore it yesterday lounging by my friend’s pool with a drink in one hand and some sour-dough-topped-with-spinach dip in the other. It was an awesome Saturday.

We’re loving it! And I LOVE aqua creams. They’ll even have to have their own basket, because the other cream shadow basket it full!

  283. lindsey says:

    I am DYING to try these MUFE Aqua Creams! I have the flash palette, which I <3 and people are telling me that these are just like the flash colors but budgeproof! It's 110 degrees where I live and I am in dire need of some creaseproof, sweatproof makeup!

  288. Katrina says:

    My favorite cream eyeshadow is Benefit creaseless cream shadow liner. I now have three and love them, thanks to reading about them in one of your blogs. I was never a fan of cream shadows until these and I can’t start the day without them. I also put these on as a base before ever thinking of putting another eyeshadow on top. They are great and I’m so thankful for you and your blog for getting me to try them!

    My favorite bikinis are the ones from VIX. they have these tiny little bottoms that show my butt off so great. They come in all these fantastic colors and styles! I have so many bikinis that when I go to the beach I always bring more than one. Even for halloween I wore a swimsuit. I wore an adorable one piece, sky high heels, did my make-up all kinds of hard, put on a tiara and sash that said Argentina, carried a bouquet of fake flowers around and said I was Miss Argentina!

    Makeup forever has the best products, my electric blue eyeliner stood up to yesterdays water gun fight!

    I NEED that peach cream shadow!!

  297. Amanda says:

    Two days ago, I had a horrible allergic reaction to something I’m not sure what, but I looked like a blow fish on steroids. Being swollen, red and itchy I knew it wasn’t the most logical idea to wear makeup. Not even mascara which I rarely leave home without. I put on my favorite summer dress, some fun jewelry, and went out to the mall. I must say, I sure did work my whoopee cushion face! I walked through stores like they were my own personal runway. I knew I didn’t look as I beautiful as I normally did, but I still felt like it. Because it is all about confidence. That is what makes you beautiful.(Of course DiorShow Mascara and Woodwinked eyeshadow help 🙂 ) but at the end of the day its having self confidence and loving yourself for who you are which sets you apart from the rest. Ladies…we are all beautiful so never stop believing. We are not going to always look our best everyday but we can feel our best about ourselves!

  298. Thao To says:

    I love my black bikini and short shorts! I just recently learned how to swim and my swim suit has been put to good use!

  305. Frenchie says:

    Hey ! My favorite swimsuit is a black and pink bikini. It’s not especially amazing but I really love the association of colors on it. (By the way, I’m a French reader and I love this blog) Au revoir <3

  308. Catherine says:

    Duuuude I was just debating getting one of these yesterday but instead I just swatched them to compare to my Shu P Beige. Lucky for me it’s totally different from Steel, which I believe is the one I had my eye on!

    And as for favorite swimsuits, I’m still looking for one. I had a cute camo bikini that never made it’s way out of Greece from our vacation… so now I’m swimsuitless. =/

  317. RLW says:

    My favorite swimsuit is one I bought to go to Jamaica this past spring. It’s a white tankini with black leopard spotssall over and bright splashes of color inside some of the spots. It’s got metal spikes around the top of the halter and at the end of all the strings. It is THE cutest swimsuit I’ve ever owned and I love it!

  318. Lisa says:

    I love cream shadows! I’m just beginning to explore makeup, especially eye shadows. I just started using cream shadows a few weeks ago and I love them. So far, I’ve been using Revlon and E.L.F cream shadows because I can’t really afford the high brand ones. I’ve been looking at MakeUp ForEver cream shadows for a while now, because the colors are just gorgeous, but they are just way too expensive for me. To win this contest would be the highlight of my life. Lol, that’s how much I’ve been loving makeup. 😀 I feel that for me, cream shadows are easier to use, since I have mono-lids. They are more easier to blend.

  319. Kianna says:

    My favorite swimsuit is a set a bought from Target! The top is a pretty coral pink kind of color. Its a bandeau. The top is white and coral pink strips with bows at the ends of the hip area. I love this swimsuit! Simple and cute(:

  320. Sal says:

    Those aqua creams are gorgeous!

  321. Jennifer T. says:

    I love using cream shadows as a base for when I’m getting dolled up for the night, or during the summer and school days when I just want a sheer wash of color!

  338. Lori says:

    I just bought some of the Aqua Cream eye shadows this week and I love them. I can attest to the fact that they stay on until you take them off. I live in the DC area and was “touring” with some guests this week and although sweat was pouring down my face, into my eyes, and all over my body, my Aqua Cream eye shadows looked the same as when I put them on in the morning!

    I never liked cream eye shadows before because of creasing, but now that I’ve been using an eye primer (quick shout-out to UDPP!!), I’m re-discovering the genius of cream eye shadows. I love their fast and easy application, especially during the summer months when I can’t be bothered to perfectly blend 2-3 eye shadows. I like the Shiseido hydro-powder cream eye shadows, but I’m really excited to try out these MUFE aqua creams!

    Great giveaway! My make routine in the summer differs quite a bit from my routine for other seasons. For one thing, I wear much less makeup, and I also wear different types of products. During other times of the year, I wear mineral-powder foundation; in summer, I rarely wear it doing the day. I’m also less partial to eyeliner and mascara doing summer. Simplify, simplify.

    I’m more likely, ‘though, to wear tinted moisturizer during the summer, and summer’s when I bring out the bronzing powder. After moisturizing, I apply bronzer lightly around the permiter of my face, as well as a bit on the places where the sun is most likely to hit — forehead, nose, chin. Then I layer a bit of blusher on the apple of my cheeks where I’ve already applied bronzer. A bit of eye shadow, a touch of lipstick, and I’m out the door.

  412. Bindu says:

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  413. Corinne says:

    those look heavenly!

  414. Emma says:

    Favorite Swimsuit: a bright shiny blue Luli Fama string bikini! Even though it has a somewhat skimpy brazilian bottom, it somehow makes my butt look smaller and tighter…always a good thing 😉 It’s my go-to suit when I need a little beachside confidence!

    Good luck on the giveaway everybody! 🙂

  415. phuongk says:

    My fave swimsuit is a polka-dot black-and-white retro tankini that I got from Target. It’s ruched on the sides and has a layer of small ruffles on the base. I love the retro feel of it, and it’s so flattering on my body!

But, earlier this week I had been craving a particular chicken alfredo and I suppose it’s my mistake for thinking the one at Carrabba’s is the same at Olive Garden. On a side note, Inception was amazing.

    karen, youre so awesome!!!!

  499. Hannah says:

    I have disappearing and super oily Asian eyelids, so you only see a smidgen of color if ever I had eyeshadow/ liner on. If I do win this, I’m hoping to get to try on these bad boys and see how they old up!!

    How oliy are my eyelids? Bobbi Brown gel liner, Benefit cream shadows, Mac paint pots, MUFE and UD eyeliners won’t even stay for more than 5 hours with primer. By the way, thanks for the giveaway Karen!

    thank you for a great giveaway– your blog is amazing

  501. Jennifer Zanzig says:

    I bought the Nars powder foundation in Mont Blanc from Nordstrom last night. Very smooth and porcelain look. And you know what would look great with it? Some MUFE Aqua Creams. Fingers crossed!

  502. stickles says:

    I just wanted to put my love here for Japanese cream shadows, not sure if you’ve tried many, but what I find they do (especially my favorite Beaute de Kose) is give you a brilliant wash of microglitter that:

    1. Does not crease (curse you Bobbi Brown metallic cream shadows!)
    2. Is suuuuper sparkly! (megawatt shine, without screaming I’m 13!)
    3. Does not have major fallout (unlike the UD Stardust shadows)

    I’d love to give these guys at MUFE a try!

  503. Kylie says:

    I love cream eyeshadows as a base for powder eyeshadows. I find them less drying but just as effective as traditional primer. I also like the waterproof varieties for those rare occasions when I go kayaking!

  505. Amy says:

    I think these are great for summer. My favorite bathing suit was any one that I wore ten years ago when I looked great.
