$23 for this is dirt cheap, considering how long these pots last! (I still haven't seen the bottom of the white shimmer one - #4 Snow- which I use nearly every day, and I think I've had it for over 2years now!). I'm currently obsessed with champagne-shimmer eyeshadow. This one has just enough shimmer to work for everyday, for day or night, and looks pretty on its own or as a base to other colors. I'm Asian, and this looks darker beige on me.
One tip - you need to put this on with a synthetic brush or a finger and really blend it well on bare skin. You can't have ANY powder product under it - otherwise, it will flake, glop together and become impossible to blend. You can put other colors - powder etc. on top of it, but be sure this (and other aquacreams) are put on bare skin!

I guess I'm in the minority, but I didn't like this product. It applies very patchy and is hard to blend. I have a Shiseido Hydro Powder eyeshadow in a very similar shade, and that one is a dream to work with. Very disappointed, and would not try any more Aqua Creams after this.

I absolutely love this product. I was a bit put off by the price at first, then I realized that I am getting roughly 7x more product than a typical drugstore eyeliner at about 3x the price. That is a steal in my book.
The product itself is thick and a little cake-like with a slight creaminess. If you would be wearing it as an eye shadow, apply it with your fingertip, if you are wearing it as a liner, use a synthetic brush.
I bought this color specifically for my wedding, and it did not disappoint. I own this shade, #1, and #20 and I love all 3. I would purchase any color in this aqua cream line, it is a great product.

I only own 2 aqua creams: number 15 (gorgeous taupey/brown shade) and number 13, which is a warm champagney shade. I really like the color as well as the fact that it is very long lasting. Admittedly, it is tricky to work with, but practice makes perfect. What really brings this shadow's rating down to 3 lippies and make me refuse to buy this product again (or use it up, for what it matters) is the extreme glitter going on with this shadow. Hello glitterbomb.
It reminds me of a warmer shade of MAC Bare Study paint pot (which is shimmery, but nowhere as glittery as this).
However, I love number 15, the darker brown shade.

I never thought to try aqua creams because (1) I thought they'd be too shimmery (2) I don't like pots for hygienic reasons and (3) products touted as waterproof and smudgeproof don't always live up to their claims. However, I was just playing around at Sephora, and fell in love with #13. It's a nudish, champagney, pinkish color that adds a hint of subtle color and sheen to my eyelids, making my eyes look bright and refreshed. Using my ring finger, I apply a tiny bit up to where my crease would be (I'm a monolidded Asian w/ hooded eyes), and it's just gorgeous. The application is a bit tricky, though, b/c if I apply too much it can get clumpy, and once it's on, it's on. This product will not move, smudge, or run under any circumstances, and it even seems to provide a smooth base for my eyeliner and eyeshadow to "grip" onto. I'm not too keen on the pot b/c I hate dipping my finger in it and having the product exposed to the elements, but this is such a stunning, fabulous product that I can overlook it. :)

I'm not much of an eyeshadow wearer, so this is PERFECT for when I just want a wash of colour for all over the lid. It stays put all day, and you don't need a primer with it as it can also work as a base. Wonderful! :)

I love make up for ever aqua creams! They stay on forever. I go swimming with these on and they still stay put. The warm beige is a great color to use as a primer. I have 8 different shades and I am hoping to collect them all

Maybe I haven't ventured far enough into the make-up realm, but I think this product+color is one of a kind. #13 is a frosty champagne with a hint of peachy/pink undertone. I really like the texture and the frostiness - makes the aqua cream stand out a lot! It's great for days where you don't wanna be bothered with make-up, so sometimes I just apply this, mascara , blush and gloss and I'm good to go. My favorite aspect is that it REALLY brightens up the eye area, making you look awake. It can be worn alone (for a more subtle look) or with eyeshadows (pairs well with SO many shadows for a dramatic look).
Some may think the product itself is already too much (because of the frost), so if you want a toned down eye product with the same color, try MAC's Jest.

I got this in a kit. So far, I'm loving it. It's great for the days that I don't really want to be bothered with too much makeup. It opens up my eyes and makes me look awake. It stays really well without even needing primer. If it lasts a long time without drying out, I will buy this again.

Doesnt show up much but is good as a base or highlight

Has incredible staying power, but dries SOOO quickly! If you don't get it right the first time, forget about trying to fix, smudge, or blend. It won't budge. Building is a problem too, as it cakes very easily. But pigment is incredible and it really does stay on forever!

It's AWESOME!!!! it stays on, no creasing no smudging, no problems.... the color rocks and even if I use it on it's own and a little bit of mascara my eyes look fantastic!!! it's the best for crazy mornings!!!!and special events too!!!!

I love this! The color is a beautiful champagne-ish and doesn't need a primer to stay all day. It is expensive but the packaging is cute and you get a lot of product. I use my finger for this product because I find it easier to use than a brush.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
This is an amazing option for eyeshadow. I can count on this to last all day, even through a hot, humid and sweaty day at the amusement park. They won't budge until I'm ready to take them off.
Shade #13 - Warm Beige is a great shimmery neutral. You can apply it with a lighter touch for a lighter wash of color, but in general Aqua Creams are meant to deliver beautiful color with rich pigmentation! I highly recommend these to anyone looking for budge-proof color that will last, even at the beach!

This is an extremely gorgeous color. Warm Beige doesn't quite suit the color...to me it feels like Naked Lunch or Jest on the eye-more peachy/pink (I am NW20). It is very frosty. When I first put it on, it is so pretty, but doesn't look soft and natural which is the summer look I was looking for. It looked like I have peachy diamond on my eyelids-lots of pizazz. Then the color calmed down a bit, but my eyes still looked distinctly "done". So if I did not have tons of these kind of shades already, and wasn't well into my later 30's, I would keep it. But this is not the summer sheen I was looking for so back to Sephora it goes. FYI - It does stay put nicely. And the color is gorgeous. My main issue is that these don't seem to melt into my skin the way Benefit Creaseless Creams do. If you want stronger bolder (kind of heavy on frost) color MUFE is for you. If you want a softer sheen...Benefit is for you.
PS-This shade is VERY similar to MUFE Aqua e/l in 23L...almost identical.
