MAKE UP FOR EVER Launching Its Seductive 2012 FALL BLACK TANGO Collection


After a recent launch of the NEW Waterproof Makeup AQUA SHADOW in June 2012, MAKE UP FOR EVER – a make up brand for professionals, created by professionals – will be launching their seductive Fall 2012 makeup collection on 2 August 2012.

Introducing 2012 FALL BLACK TANGO Collection!

The new 2012 FALL BLACK TANGO Collection, showcasing confidence and sophisticated femininity. Artistic elegance, colors that draw their tones from black lace and the Latin spirit of seduction are in the spotlight.

BLACK TANGO Collection was inspired by the Tango dancers and with Dany’s South American roots who used to dance the tango herself, she took the inspiration from their needs and has created easy-to-use and incredibly long-lasting products that are perfectly tailored to these extreme conditions.

“For this collection, I wanted to transport us into the hushed atmosphere of the Milonga room. Black Tango is an invitation to seduction and the world of dance. Behind the delicate lace of a fan, the deep gaze of a woman bewitches a mysterious partner. The two words driving my creativity when creating the products were incredible hold and emotion… for a passionate night of tango.” – DANY SANZ, Creator & Artistic Director of MAKE UP FOR EVER (lady with red hair)

2012 FALL BLACK TANGO Collection comprises of a Limited Edition AQUA CREAM Palette, three matching nail polishes (not figure above) and a lipstick with an incredible, glamorous shine.

I was glad to be one of the first to preview this hot collection at MAKE UP FOR EVER office recently.


Limited Edition AQUA CREAM 2012 BLACK TANGO Palette – S$75

This Limited Edition AQUA CREAM 2012 BLACK TANGO Palette, retailing at S$75.00, is created with a harmony of blacks with red, green and blue reflection as well as an ivory color.

Its melt-away creamy shadows glide on the skin perfectly and the firm nylon fiber bristles brush is perfect for creamy texture to allow an easy application.

Its rich, luminous and intense colors, formulated with a high concentration of pigments and pearlescent particles, gives a sexy seductive appeal. Its unique Filmogenic Polymers encapsulates the pigments, making the shadows waterproof and long-lasting. And the Volatile Oils evaporate after application, leaving the pigments fixed on the skin. The shadows are paraben free and are tested under aphthalmological supervision.

Here’s a makeup tutorial by Lisa using the BLACK TANGO palette on Noraini who is a professional dancer.

Lisa also demonstrated the use of AQUA ROUGE Waterproof Lipstick and Lipliner (No. 11) on Noraini’s lip by outlining her lip with AQUA Lipliner (2), then filling it with lipstick (3) and coating her lip with the lip gloss (4).


BLACK TANGO Nail Polishes – S$22

Dany Sanz has also created three nail polishes for a complete feminine, sensual BLACK TANGO look. The three deep colors – Black with Red Highlights (shown above), Black with Green Highlights and Black with Blue Highlights actually match the colors from the BLACK TANGO Palette.


AQUA ROUGE Lipstick – S$39

MAKE UP FOR EVER launches its latest addition to its AQUA range, the AQUA ROUGE lipstick, a very long-lasting waterproof lipstick with a dazzling color result.

In a Tango Dance, the mouth is the center of attention and AQUA ROUGE beautifully enhances this utterly desirable smile.

For the BLACK TANGO look (above), Dany Sanz has chosen AQUA ROUGE No.11, Dark Raspberry, a mysterious flame red.

Highly glossy, concentrated lipstick with an innovative element that combines two applications in one. (Above image) Lipstick on the left size and lip gloss on the right side.

The top coat provides a vinyl finish and protects the color.

Having trouble looking for a matching lip pencil for your favorite lipstick?

Well, all AQUA ROUGE lipsticks are created with a matching lip liner shade (that comes with the same number) which means you don’t have to worry of finding the right shade for your lipstick anymore.

Lisa, MAKE UP FOR EVER Trainer, tested the AQUA ROUGE Lipstick No. 8 and Lipliner No. 8 on my lip. She first outlined my lip with a lip liner, then filled up my lip with the lipstick and completed the look with the lip gloss.

I actually love the color (No. 8) very much! It compliments my fair skin tone pretty well. For those who have tanned skin tone, you may wanna opt for No. 11 which is deeper and darker red in color. The model (the first picture of this post) actually wears No. 11.



The new AQUA CREAM shade MATTE BLACK presents the same formula as the current AQUA CREAM range. It is the first shade in the Aqua Cream range that offers a unique difference with a matte result. Aqua Cream is a waterproof cream color that provides an outstanding impeccable hold. Makeup stays put, it does not run, crease or transfer to the upper lid.

With this new addition to the existing Aqua Cream range, Aqua Cream range has now a total of 26 shades.


AQUA BROW Kit – S$71

AQUA BROW Refill (7ml) – S$39

You can now redefine the shape of your eyebrows like a pro with this AQUA BROW Kit, retailing at S$71.

With AQUA BROW kit, you can easily lengthen, redefine and fill in your eyebrows with the rich, creamy, waterproof gel that blends in instantly with eyebrows. The waterproof brow gel is available in 5 shades, from light brown to brown black. The tube of AQUA BROW comes in a mini travel-size mesh bag together with two tiny brushes, an angled brush specially designed to define eyebrows and a round brush.

AQUA BROW Gel is available for sale as part of the kit (S$71) or separately (S$39). This waterproof and smudge-proof Brow Gel is available from 2 August 2012 onwards.


Upon the event, each blogger received a Limited Edition AQUA CREAM Palette, 3 AQUA ROUGE Lipsticks (No 8, 15, 10) and a AQUA CREAM shade MATTE BLACK. :-)
