Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge Lipcolor in Coral Swatches and Review

Believe it or not, I'm a low maintenance makeup kind of girl. I covet products that I can apply once a day, that still look as good at hour 12 as they did first thing in the morning. Consequently, I neglect my lip products more than any other product in my makeup arsenal.

That's not to say I don't appreciate me some gorgeous lip color, I just don't have the patience required to reapply every few hours or worry about smudging every time I take a sip of water or want to nibble on some food.

Enter Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge lipstick. This product grabbed my attention the second I heard it's marketing appeal as an ultra-pigmented, smudge proof lip color. I didn't hesitate to snatch one up to see if these claims really be true. Could I really have low maintenance, high voltage lip color? Amazingly, with this product, I can!

The color this lipstick provides is intense and vibrant. This coral color especially is not for the statement lip shy! What is really flooring about this product, though, is how it refuses to budge. Once it sets (which is very fast, you have to be pretty quick when applying to get even coverage!) I haven't found any food or drink that can get this product to smudge or fade. Amazing!

The product takes two steps to apply. On one end of the wand you'll find a doe foot applicator to apply the color. The other end contains a clear gloss designed to add shine and protect the color to help make it last. If you prefer a matte finish you can easily skip the gloss, but I have found it to be helpful when first applying to smooth and even out the color.

  2. I've been wanting to try Makeup Forever, well, forever. The closest Sephora is about 40 minutes away. I wish they sold it at Ulta! I have an Utla just down the road. Thanks for liking my blog!
