Make Up For Ever Black Tango Fall Collection 2012


I had always wanted to be Sensual Feminine and Seductive

Creating black smokey eye look is one of the essential

BUT

I can never pass through the messy-powder drops all over the face look

Powder shadow is a wee that bit messy with them falling and dirtying the look

Cream shadow can sometimes be too rich and difficult to blend

I have oily eye lids and color do not sit although I have prep with eye primer

Oh Well

Am I to bear with the messy dirty smokey eye look?

Especially when time is not on my side?

I was invited to Make Up For Ever Black Tango Fall Collection 2012

And

I am not only Impressed but totally Sold



Make Up For Ever Black Tango Palette

It is a Limited Edition Aqua Cream Palette

Consisting of FOUR new Aqua Cream shades

A harmony of Blacks with Red, Green, Blue and Ivory

The subtle and intense reflections are powerful potions of Seduction


The colors are rich and intense, highly pigmented

They are creamy but not oily

They are easily spread with fingers and even much easier with the attached brush

I do not even need to set them with powder colors at all

Not only the color stays all day, in the sun with the sweat

And even under water, in the pool

I have tried 2 looks using the Black Tango Palette


Closed Eye



Open Eyes



After - Before

Can you see how the eyes are enlarged with the contouring and falsies

Only a dab of color (Green + Blue) is blended at the corner of the eyes to give it some depth and lift

You can blend the color till the outer corner of the iris, about 1/3 of the length of your eyelid

I use Ivory under the brow bone and the inner corner, 2/3 of the eyelid for some contrast

The brush in the palette makes it much easier to blend with the firm nylon fibre bristles



Another new product from the Black Tango Collection

would be the Aqua Cream Matt Black

which is my Super Love

It has the same formula as the Aqua Cream range

But

offers a unique difference with a Matt finishing

It is also waterproof with impeccable hold

I pick up the color with my liner brush and draw an eyeliner

Remember that my eyelid is disgustingly oily

and

NO eyeliner could have stay put throughout the day without transfering colors

BUT

This little pot is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G

The liner stays put and does not run nor smudge

This is my Holy Grail

I tried another Intense look with Aqua Cream Matt Black



Eye Closed


Eye Open


After - Before

You can see that the color stays obediently at the correct place,

Does Not run, Does Not smudge, Does Not transfer

AND

the color Does Not Crease!!!

Yes, the color is Matt

And

You might think that the color will crease and difficult to blend or spread

BUT

You are awfully wrong

Because of the same formula as Aqua Cream Range

Aqua Cream Matt Black is easy to blend

As easy as Aqua Cream Range

The color is Intense, Rich and Super pigmented

Aqua Cream Matt Black is one which you cannot afford to miss

It can be used BOTH as an Eyeliner or Smokey Eye Look
