Flag Friday: China

The Chinese Flag: yellow and red.

Way before eyeprimers were a thing, I used to use creamy eyepencils or cream eyeshadows like this one as a base for a bold eyelook.

What a surprise to see what happened to this beauty when opening it after two years. Cracked and dried down. Too bad, because it is such a good color.

I’m talking about the Aqua Cream in number 8 from Make Up For Ever. I had some hopes when I saw the pigment on my finger was still the bright red it used to be. But swatching it on the back of my hand, well, see for yourself.

The yellow however, an eyeshadow from Park Avenue, was hard to remove and left a yellow stain on my hand.
