So before you hear it from anyone else, I thought I’d let you in on the news myself. Yes, I did have a tryst with the new Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouges (in number 2 & 10). And in fact, I quite liked it! These are Make Up For Ever’s latest lip venture, designed to be long lasting, intense and comfortable. What’s not to love?
Liquid lipsticks are all over the place these days and no, we are not complaining. I love how intensely pigmented these babies are and also very comfortable at the same time. You can wear these glossy and matte, so quite versatile in that sense. On me, it lasts for about 6 hours and by the 7th hour these are barely there. But since there are no outrageous claims from MUFE for these lasting 24 hours or so, the average longevity does not faze me. The colour range is quite limited, mostly leans towards neutrals and rich fall hues. I’d still love to see the range expand as MUFE usually has an extensive library when it comes to shades.
#2 is Rosewood – a beige/pink nude. It leans brown on me actually – overall a great everyday lip colour. It will suit most complexions as it is an easy shade to wear.
#10 is Raspberry – a gorgeous berry shade. Again, a very universal shade but I’d play it safe and wear it only in the PM. It does light up my face though, if I may say so. A very “brightening” lipstick.
Overall thoughts: If you love the whole liquid lipstick trend, you will like these. Though they don’t last the whole day, these fade evenly into a stain and you have the option of wearing these matte or glossy. Love ’em.
