MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Rouge #13

I know it's Springtime, but vampy shades can still be worn year round! I really like to wear darker lip shades at night, since I normally stick to pinks and corals during the day. I featured MAKE UP FOR EVER's Aqua Rouge #13* in my Favourite Winter Lip Colours post, but you can wear it all year long, especially for a night out. 

"Formulated with a combination of high molecular weight polymers and volatile oils, Aqua Rouge locks color on the lips for a smudge-proof result that will not transfer or fade. Its intensely pigmented formula provides immediate, opaque color with extreme shine, and its creamy, non-sticky texture glides effortlessly on the lips for comfortable wear."


MAKE UP FOR EVER's Aqua Rouge line consists of bold, highly pigmented lip colours that come housed in a double ended package. One side contains the colour with a doe foot applicator, and the other side contains a clear gloss with a brush applicator. I find the packaging a bit bulky, as since it's so long you can't slip it in your pocket or a small clutch. 

Shade #13 is a deep berry purple shade that is quite vampy. I use two coats of the coloured lip stain, followed by one coat of the clear gloss. I definitely think that you need to use the clear gloss. The lip stain on its' own can feel quite sticky and uncomfortable, but the clear gloss is a great formula that makes this lip combo very wearable. You do have to work with the application a bit to ensure even coverage. Once this colour is applied, it set very quickly and forms a stain on your lips. This colour will last on your lips all day, without smudging, flaking, fading, even during eating and drinking! If you're looking for a long wearing lip colour, definitely check out this line from MAKE UP FOR EVER!


This formula is similar to YSL's Glossy Stains, but MUFE's version is more affordable, and slightly more long-wearing. Have you tried MAKE UP FOR EVER's Aqua Rouge line? New shades were just released into this line for Summer, and I can't wait to try them out!
