If you're looking for a waterproof cream eyeshadow that is truly waterproof & will last throughout the day, this eyeshadow is for you. I have very watery eyes due to allergies & I find that typically powder eye shadows can't hold up during the day. With these aqua matic eye shadows, I don't have to set with a powder eyeshadow or anything, I just use these eye shadows by themselves on my lids. It does rub off, flake, smudge or anything. I do like to use an eyeshadow primer before using these cream eye shadows just for added insurance.

Pro's: No need for a spare sharpener, easy to apply straight from tube, blend with fingertips, extremely waterproof, good in humidity, wore for > 8 hrs with no creasing
Cons: Hard to get if you don't have access to a Sephora (but they ship online, so it isn't too bad), high price per pencil, limited colour range, not meant for fine lining, tip is hard to keep pointy (this doesn't impact me, but others might want to attempt finer lines with it)
Overall: Good addition to a collection. If you only wear a wash of colour across your lids, OR you are in a rush these are swipe-and-go so very ideal!
Once these Aqua Matics set after a minute or two, they pretty much do not budge! Pigmentation was good and the colour glided easily across my eyelid without tugging. The Aqua Shadows have a tacky almost sticky consistency which I was expecting from the Aqua Matics, but I was mistaken! I know there have been some mixed reviews on this collection, but I think it might be based on colour. I found I-22 to be a striking, metallic blue shadow that certainly lives up to the rest of the MUFE Aqua line. Colour me impressed.
