I love makeup that reminds me of crayons. Call it a throwback to my childhood or laziness or just ease of application, but I almost always love makeup that looks like it should come in a Crayola box. It's just fun! So I'm totally into MAKE UP FOR EVER's new Aqua Matic eye shadow pencils. They look sort of like big eyeliners and you can definitely use them as liners if you want, but they're actually shadow. They come in ten different colors, but the one above (Iridescent Pop Purple) was my favorite of the ones I tried. It's just SUCH a pretty purple. I wore it around the house yesterday and I couldn't stop looking at it in the mirror. (Hey, I'm still sick so anything that makes me smile right now is great. Also, nothing looks sillier than a person in their pajamas with full eye makeup. I'm pretty sure the mailman laughed when he saw me). The formula on them is great - I wore it all day yesterday and it looked almost the same at the end of the day as it did when I first applied it. (And that's with many coughing fits complete with watery eyes AND lots of sneezing). I love that they twist up (even better than real crayons!) and the shade selection is great too (although this being MAKE UP FOR EVER, I'm slightly surprised that there are only ten shades - I hope there's more to come!) You can also use these as a base for other (powder) shadows if you want, so they can almost function as a primer (especially the lighter shades). I do find that they "set" fairly quickly, so I like to blend them quickly after I apply to make sure I get exactly the look that I want. Super quick, super easy, super portable. It's a win all around!
