MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Rouge (I’m BEYOND Ecstatic for these) – Find Out Madonna’s Signature Shade from the Collection
I just discovered a few days ago that MAKE UP FOR EVER recently launched, Aqua Rouge, which is a collection of waterproof liquid lip colors in twelve shades. I’m beyond ecstatic for these because I find that 80-90% of the time, I wear waterproof double ended lip products (my collection consists of mainly MAC and Lorac). The only problem is, Lorac recently discontinued all of them (a few months ago, I fell in love with a color they made called, “First Kiss” only to sadly discover a few months later they were discontinuing them so I had to stock up through their website as it was already pulled from Sephora) and MAC just recently discontinued a ton of their prolong wear double ended lip products. A week ago, I had to pick up “Lasting Lust” prolong wear as it is getting discontinued and I may never see it again. It’s the ONLY red I wear so the thought of never having it again is pretty devastating (to say the least)!
Okay, so being that many of these products are going extinct, it’s absolutely delightful to find that MAKE UP FOR EVER has created their own line of waterproof liquid lip colors. (And when I say waterproof, I mean that you will need an oil based makeup remover to get it off). I got a chance to stop by Sephora and already have a beauty wish list of the shades I want. Going based on a first glance and then swatching it on my hand, I’m most interested in #1, #5, #13, and #15.
I also just recently read that Madonna’s longtime makeup artist Gina Brooke collaborated with MAKE UP FOR EVER and helped create the shade, “Iconic Red” (#8) for Madonna that will also serve as one of her makeup staples for her MDNA Tour. (I’m going to see Madonna in October when she tours in Arizona…very excited! I’ll be sure to keep my eyes open for her “Iconic Red” lip color!)
