Makeup forever HAUL

OK so I have been wanting to go to this store in London for ages, I knew from Pixiwoo that there one store in Fulham that that stocks Makeupforever I have always heard of their products being such good quality full of pigment and that they last for ages especially the Aqua line.
I kinda got lost when I got off at Parsons Green Station but took the long way there walking as I decided to follow navigation map on my phone :)

When I went in I was in awe! I thought the store would be a little larger but it is basically a 2 storey studio with the bottom floor housing all the Makeupforever products and a few other brands like Bioderma and Embryolisse.

I played for a while with all the products trying to hide how excited I am I also saw an air brush make-up kit that I forgot the name of, but it was cool to see.

I eventually picked up for products in total and I think I chose a good amount to try and explore the brand in general.

I got an Aqua cream in the colour 16 which is a muted pink almost dusty the texture is amazing soft highly pigmented not like anything I have ever seen this little pot throws all other types of cream shadow out the window!

Verdict: Love 

The "Uplight" "Face Luminizer gel" was what caught my eye the most and is really one of the most amazing products I have come across, maybe I haven't seen or played with enough products but over everything I own and everything my friends own and all the time spent playing on the make-up counters I really have not seen any highlighter better than this

Why is it so good?

The sheen is ultra fine its not even micro shimmer it is way smaller it is what you would imagine a super amazing strobe cream from mac would be like, it dires quick so you don't just sit there waiting for it to settle but you still get time to blend and and adjust the finish to suit you. you also do not need much at all the amount  in the photo is way too much and you will see how much it spreads you have to work hard not to release too much product by pressing the nozzle firmly on your hand while you press the pump down.

as you can see its the perfect highlighter
Verdict: Love 

I also had to pick up an "Aqua eyes" eye liner and an "Aqua lip liner" which are both said to be water proof products.

As much as I wanted to get a coloured eye liner I knew that I would really use a black one more and since my Urban decay 24/7 liner was nearly done I decided on the black one.

I love the longevity of this eye liner, this eye liner is also blend-able yet also settles so it doesn't smudge throughout the day at all.
The lady at the store did point out to me that compared to the regular eye liners it isn't as dark but that is due to the formula but I don't mid as the formula is more important to me.

Verdict: good for a waterproof eye liner

Aqua lip liner:
Most lip liners let alone long lasting lip liners tend to be dry, but this is so creamy so pigmented I chose this colour as its always what I go for  pretty rosy pinks,  bright enough to give a fresh look this will go with most of my lipsticks but I plan to wear it on its own as I really love the colour.

A beautiful rosy colour that would also go nicely underneath a nude lipstick like myth, fleshpot, or hue to make it more wearable.

Verdict: LOVE

Overall I am really am really happy with everything I got I do hope I will go and explore more of their products, I will leave you with a few photos of the store....enjoy 

Have you been to the Guru-Make-up Emporium in Fulham/Parsons Green?
