Are you looking for a lip color that will NOT budge? Then look no further than the new Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge Waterproof Liquid Lip Colors. Whew, quite the mouthful!
But really, these are seriously hardcore budge-proof. They are very saturated and bold, and come in twelve shades. They come in a lip gloss-like tubes with one end featuring the lip shade, and the other a clear gloss which makes your lips super wet looking and really seals in the color.
One of the shades that I tried out is the official lip color for Madonna’s MDNA tour. Her makeup artist Gina Brooke created the bright, classic red shade. She wanted something very long-lasting and Aqua Rouge #8 is the result!
#5, #8 (with gloss over)
#5 is a medium beige/brown shade. Not my favorite shade for my skin tone, but a nice shade nonetheless.
#8 is a vivid red. Absolutely bright, classic and gorgeous. Love it.

The photo above is after I wiped off the clear gloss with a makeup wipe a few times! See what I mean about it really lasting? I had to rub quite a bit more to finally get it all off my lips.
Overall: These definitely live up to what they say they will do. The colors are saturated, they are super budge-proof, and the clear gloss makes them very shiny.
