Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge ($24) are waterproof liquid lip colors with one end containing the color and the other end a clear gloss. So far there are 17 different shades available at Sephora and I went the safe route with my purchase. I bought #15 which is a nice rosy pink shade.
These liquid lipsticks are a long wearing waterproof formula. The color part applies smoothly with lots of opaque, pigmented color. It glides on the lips nicely but is not slippery or too wet feeling. It quickly dries down to a matte finish. Once the color sets, you then top it with the clear gloss for a shiny finish.
I love the beautiful color this has and the appearance of it right after application. It feels nice and light on the lips too. You really do get minimal transfer when eating and drinking. Once the clear gloss wears off though, things get on the sticky side, which I do not like.
I’m not really fond of the way this looks as the color part wears off though. It gets quite patchy and sticks to fine lines and just plain looks bad. The last of it really does stick to your lips though like glue.
Overall I really wanted to like these Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge lip colors but I don’t think they are quiet for me. I love they way it initially looks but I don’t like how sticky it feels after a few hours. That can be solved by reapplying the gloss on top often but that becomes a bit of a pain.
