Founder and Creative Director Dany Sanz’s love of the tango was the inspiration for the MAKE UP FOR EVER Black Tango Palette for Fall 2012. One look at the case — black lace on a gorgeous red background, gives a hint to the sensuous new shades inside. Read on for more…

Based on her experience doing the makeup for “Tango Argentina”, Dani created the Black Tango collection to modernize the traditional color palette with four new shades of Aqua Cream. The four new Aqua Cream shadows include rich shades of black with red, green and blue jewel tones, as well as ivory for highlighting. I like that each Aqua Cream is housed in it’s own well, complete with a flip-top cap to keep it fresh. Also included is a flat, nylon bristle brush for easy application.

I love the MUFE Aqua Creams and the colors in this palette are smoky and sultry. I like that you can also use an eyeliner brush and use these shades as liners (except for the Ivory).   The fact that Aqua Creams are so long-wearing and smudge-proof makes them a great choice for all-day wear. I’ve swatched the shades below:

The MAKE UP FOR EVER Black Tango Palette for Fall 2012 will retail at $45; it’s available now at and in MAKE UP OR EVER Boutiques in September.


While you’re at it…check out the other MAKE UP FOR EVER new launches.  The Aqua Rouge ($24) liquid lip color duo locks in highly-pigmented, transfer-resistant, smudge-proof color in two steps. First apply the opaque shade, then top with the transparent gloss. I highly recommend shade 8, Iconic Red, for Fall. If you’re a fan of neutrals, #1 Nude Beige, is a good choice. The range is available in 12 shades.

Also look for new Aqua Brow ($20), which I totally love.  Long-lasting, smudge-proof, this creamy gel-formula is highly pigmented while still looking natural on brows. I’ve been using the Blonde shade (even though I’m brunette) to fill in my brows and I’m obsessed! Three shades (#10 Light Blonde, #15 Blonde and #25 Ash) are available at Sephora, and MAKE UP FOR EVER Boutiques and an additional four shades are available exclusively in MUFE Boutiques.
