MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Rouge line continues Make Up For Ever's domination in the long-wear/waterproof cosmetics category.
Their latest addition, Aqua Rouge , manages to provide budge-proof all day wear while also keeping lips moist.
Even better, it provided a gloss for a more high shine look, or I had the option to leave my lips more semi-matte by day, for example, and then just add a bit of gloss in the evening for going out.
The liquid color sets within about 60 seconds and while it does dry, it never dried my lips out or became flaky. The colors are also extremely pigmented and the texture is light, creamy and easy to apply.
My favorite day to day color was number 7, and number 9 and number 10 are also very pretty for a red, and raspberry shade, respectively. I have to say that the staying power of these lip colors is SO strong that I needed a makeup remover to actually take them off at the end of the day. The bonus of course is that anything you eat, drink, bump into, anyone you kiss (smile) it will NOT come off. This is perfect for travel, long work days or a busy day with the kids when you're out and about and don't have time to reapply makeup!
For a test, I applied one morning and added gloss in the evening. I decided to not remove the color and in the morning it was all STILL THERE (except the gloss). Even better, the color was still creamy and smooth and my lips were soft. This is an indispensable lip product for your collection and absolutely worth every penny. - RLB
