Aqua is a matte, very light ice blue with a hint of turquoise (in my opinion). I like this eyeshadow much more than I thought I would, my only gripe is how hard it is to photograph! Argh. LOL In the swatch to the left, you’ll notice that I left the edges of my hand in the picture so you could see the true color. When I cut it into the circle I usually do for the swatches in these posts, it looked really gray and you couldn’t see how truly blue this shade is. (Even that swatch doesn’t do it justice!) In the combos below, please remember that it is a much more blue shade in person! 😉 What I really like about this eyeshadow is the matte formula (which is so soft and buttery!), as well as the ability to layer it for more intense color, or sheer it out for a soft wash of color. It pairs beautifully with grays, blues, purples, oranges, etc.; the possibilities are endless with this one!
